SEAN CASEY
Recording Date: 1/18/05 @ Saturn Sound Studios in Florida
Song: How Do You Like Me Now?! by Toby Keith
I was told by other players that Sean was the “nicest man in baseball.” Having spoken w. him numerous times on the phone, I knew he was cool but not until we met in person could I confirm the above statement. He’s the kind of guy that makes you feel like you’re the only other person in a full room when he talks to you. This was one of the nicest guys I had EVER met. Totally 100% genuine. His passion for music & this project was overwhelming. Sean brought his father-in-law, John, who had a good feel for country music & helped to ease Sean into the track. As Sean warmed up, he began nailing it! He was interested in all aspects of recording and he seemed to be having a lot of fun. His wife, kids & mother-in-law eventually joined us in the studio & we had lunch. Great family & couldn’t have had a better time in the studio.
JEFF CONINE
Recording Date: 1/19/05 @ Jeff’s house in Florida
Song: Plush by Stone Temple Pilots
Jeff had a reputation for being fairly hard-core. From interviews he’s given throughout the years, I knew he was a no-nonsense guy & true team leader. He was pretty serious at first, but as we got to talking, he was completely cool. Jeff was very candid & gave me a lot of behind-the-scenes baseball gossip that a fan could only dream of hearing. We set up our studio in his amazing memorabilia room. Signed bats, jerseys, pictures and baseballs filled the space. I asked to see his 2 World Series rings and he obliged. A lot of gold & diamonds. From the get go, Jeff was a solid singer. He picked a perfect song that matched his vocal tone. As his voice warmed up, he really began feeling the song. Again, a total pro – you could just tell this is a guy that puts everything into what he’s doing at the moment. When I asked him to autograph my baseball, he ribbed me for having him sign a Little League ball! I was bummed when the session ended. I could have hung all day w. “Conine the Barbarian” (given to him by Chris Berman).
