Mick Mashbir contributes to the 'Velvet Saints' upcoming CD titled "Shadows". Mick was in the Alice Cooper band during the Billion Dollar Babies and Muscle of Love years. He plays on two Velvet Saints tracks, 'Hate' and 'Break You Down'. "Alice is a big influence on our songs, especially in the dark sinister kind of way," say Jeff Epperson of Velvet Saints. "I approached Mick about playing on the CD and sent him the basic tracks to work with. Within a few days, he presented us with his tracks and they had the exact groove and feel we were looking for. He definitely understood the direction we were headed. We are looking forward to collaborating with him soon on the 3rd CD."
