Live footage from the band’s Introduction show at St. Anne’s in Brooklyn from February 19th, 1999 is blended with photos from the band members’ personal collections. YOD Multimedia produced a video that is not only a performance piece but a poignant look back at a band in its infancy with modern graphics and text for lyrics.
Following the official music video is raw, hand cam footage of a 19 yr. old David Z performing his first bass solo with the band. He runs through a blistering set of jazz, prog, and funk sections, culminating in a two-handed version of Michael Jackson ’s “Billie Jean” while doing the moonwalk.
David went on to an extensive career, joining the Trans-Siberian Orchestra , Jeff Scott Soto , and toured with his own band ZO2 , opening for KISS and Poison on their US Tour in 2004.
Tragically, he lost his life in a vehicle crash while on tour with Adrenaline Mob in 2017. This video and album are a tribute to him and his incredible talent.
