Piotr Brzychcy & Doogie White - photo by Marta Tłuszcz

Earlier this month, Tank played the Metal Hammer Festival in Spodek, Katowice and singer, Doogie White used his stay in Poland to participate in the shooting of the videoclip for Kruk's song 'In Reverie'.

After his guest appearance on the band's album 'It Will Not Come Back' (released by Metal Mind Production in June), the time came to appear in the band's video as well. Doogie willingly agreed to cooperate with the Polish musicians, sparing no compliments.

Soon, a mutual understanding between the artists was born, which influenced the atmosphere on the set. We will have a chance to see the results of this cooperation in mid October when the video is released.

Piotr Brzychcy, Kruk's guitarist, describes the band's work with Doogie White:

"Doogie isn't only a great singer, but also a wonderful man. On the set of the video for 'In Reverie' he created a friendly atmosphere, which influenced everyone so much that soon we all forgot about the stress that took hold of us at first. He motivated us to forget about all our inhibitions and to feel the rock 'n' roll madness.

"We also heard lots of various stories from White's colorful history, usually full of vivid details of the kind that you would never find in a interview. On that day, however, what was the most important for us was the words of acknowledgment and praise which he expressed on several occasions with reference to Kruk."

Kruk’s album 'It Will Not Come Back' is out now. Full details can be find on Metal Mind’s website by clicking here.

Doogie White’s debut solo album 'As Yet Untitled' will be released on 24th October in Europe and 8th November in USA. Full details about this release can be found by clicking here.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
