Hanoi Rocks My Album! Sami Yaffa & Michael Monroe....

It’s a pity that I have no video footage of these legendary Finns laying down their tracks on The Steve Conte NYC Album. Sorry, but these photos will have to suffice.

What’s my connection w/ them? Well…I’ve been sharing the stage & studio with the Yaffa-man since 2004 when he joined New York Dolls…and in 2010, I joined up with him once again in the Michael Monroe band. He’s absolutely one of the most solid rock bass players I’ve ever played with!!

Michael and I were both signed to Mercury Records around the same time – my band Company Of Wolves released our eponymous debut album just after the label put out MM’s solo debut , “Not Fakin’ It”. When I first heard “Dead, Jail, Rock And Roll” I thought, “This guy is a bad-ass!” – and what a trip that now I’m writing songs and playing guitar with him.

Sami rocks the bass on the album’s opening track “Dark In The Spotlight” whilst Michael honks his horn on “Lady Luck” – the Glam-Rock summit with Sylvain Sylvain of New York Dolls, Dennis Dunaway of Alice Cooper & the mouthpiece of Hanoi Rocks, Mr Monroe himself!

If you want to hear these tracks and don’t have the album yet you can still download it until January 18th – for just $10 – click here:
