As of June 2006, the legendary LA band London has reformed with Nadir D?priest(lead vocals)and Eddie St.James(guitars,ex-Jon Dunmore band, Richard Grieco ). Nadir and Eddie are currently working on the songs and demos for the new London album. As of date there is not yet a title for the new album, but the songs have been written and they are now being arranged and prepared for the new CD.
Eddie has stated that he had written many really good AOR hard rock songs back in 91 for his 2nd ESJ - Project album that he was forced to abbandon and that he feels that these songs were meant for a singer like Nadir D?priest,who is also a long,long time friend of Eddie?s."We?re not here to prove or disprove anything to anybody, we just want to have fun and make some music together and whoever wants to join in with us is welcome and if you don?t then that?s also ok with us".
London has also signed on with the German RB-Management & Promotion and has already recieved several offers from various major German record labels. Eddie is very excited about playing in a group together with his old pal Nadir, who has gained an unfair reputation as being the unluckiest musician in the history of rock and roll! - "Nadir has done work and recorded albums with people like Fred Coury(Cinderella),Matt Sorum (Guns&Roses/Velvet Revolver), Ron Wood (Rolling Stones) and members of the band "House of Lords"-etc.,and is a highly respected musician by both his peers and fans". London is planning on presenting it?s new material in early 2007 along with a european tour with some other well known rock bands which is currently in the planning stages. Eddie said that a dream of his is to work agian with another very old friend, Marti Frederiksen ( Ozzy, Aerosmith, Johnny Lang, Def Leppard -etc. ) as the producer for the new London CD.
Eddie was occasionally Marti?s drum roadie way back in thier high school days, around 1978 for one of Marti?s first bands, named Road Crew. A new London web site with some audio / visual clips will be up and running soon,The last London album was in 1991, Playa Del Rock- Noise / BMG. Stay tuned for more updates!
