On the cover of four rock albums

Which cover would you want your name on?

I didn’t ask to be on any cover, but I ended up on 4 of them. Rock music album covers, that is:  a vinyl LP, 2 tape cassettes and one CD.

I am grateful that my friends printed my name on their released albums. Most of the time, my only support was as a friend.

Here they are…

 

Survolaj 1 (1992) – the first record I got my name on (I took this album to Jimi Hendrix’s grave near Seattle in May 2011, where this pic was taken). I was in the studio while the album was recorded in early summer 1992 in Bucharest. Survolaj was a rock band from Timisoara, Romania.

Romanian band Talitha Qumi’s only album (1996). My name is on the inside cover, in the ‘Thank you Friends’ section. Talitha Qumi was an art-rock project in Cluj, Romania.

Hometown rock band B’N’G worked a few good years to record and get this one out, around 1998 if I remember well. I spent countless hours with the band members at the radio station where I worked in Baia Mare, at their rehearsal room, backstage at the concerts and in countless parties.

 

My third time being named on a rock record: Baia Mare, Romania band BNG’s only album.

Fast forward to 2011, funk Seattle band The Staxx Brothers lists my name on their 3rd album. Apparently playing them in my podcast and travelling to Seattle to see them live got my name on it: thanks, friends!
The fourth time my name goes on a rock record: Seattle funk/hiphop band The Staxx Brothers thanked me on their 2011 album, Jungle Cat.
