More Info:

Still Climbing, co-produced by West and Mike Metal Goldberg, who engineered all of the sessions. The album, excluding the tracks "Tales of Woe" and his bassist's "Rev Jones Time (Somewhere Over The Rainbow)" was mixed by Mike Fraser, who s worked with Metallica, AC/DC, Rush, Joe Satriani, Bad Company and many others.


Songs like Dyin' Since The Day I Was Born, Hatfield or McCoy, and Busted, Disgusted or Dead establish a new litmus test for heavy. The latter features West and Winter on dueling slide guitars. Both men have been friends since the Woodstock era, and in recent years they ve toured together and individually kicked methadone addiction. We re thinking we should write a book about that experience, West relates. Everybody talks about being addicted to heroin or cocaine, but methadone, which is a synthetic opiate used to get you off of heroin, will grab hold of you and not let go.
