Video" category for the first single "Radio
", where Steve Cooke is singing and playing guitar with Adam Lambert
band members, Monte Pittman (Guitar), Tommy Joe Ratliff (Bass) and with the veteran Heart
Breaker himself Steve Ferrone on drums (Tom Petty).
Steve Cooke and Monte Pittman were also in the video production for the second single "Gravity
", this single is up for this years "Best Song" award in AC/AAA.
Steve Cooke commented that, "Gravity was also a fantastic music clip to make. We made that one first with Marcus Brown on bass (Madonna/Seal) and Steve Sidelnyk on drums (Madonna/Seal) and I guess that set us up for RADIO, which we filmed 2 weeks later. The lead break in Gravity is played by Phil X who is currently touring with Bon Jovi.
"We wanted RADIO to cross over the generations and I think we achieved that in this video. We are crossing the fingers that we will have something to bring home on the night. Im just so happy that both songs made it into the Award finals," he added.
