Death Alley Tony

American heavy metal band A Sound Of Thunder is releasing their new album Tales from the Deadside. The album features two bonus tracks: covers of Rainbow’s Death Alley Driver and Dio’s Last in Line.

And they’ve got Tony Carey playing keyboards on Death Alley Driver:

Hollywood Swingin’! Thanks for having me.

The band’s guitarist (and longtime THS follower) Josh Schwartz adds:

Tony is an immensely accomplished musician and producer and I can’t overstate how honoured I am to have him on our recording. His work with Rainbow only scratches the surface of his many talents. Fans will know that Tony didn’t play on the original version of “Death Alley”. By adding wall-to-wall Hammond organ and his own personal style, Tony has warmed up the song and given it a kick in the pants and a very cool ’70s vibe not present on the original.

The bonus tracks are available either separately or together with the album through the band’s Kickstarter campaign, which runs through August 17.

Thanks to Josh S for the info.

    After listening Tony Carey playing in this sad versión of ” death alley driver” , i think he could have been an excellent keyboardist for Deep Purple, after the great Jon Lord
