*Special Guest vocalist Glenn Walters
Glenn co-founded ìThe Hoodoo Rhythm Devilsî with Texan, Joe Crane. This creative combination of Joeís and Glennís soulful voices toured and performed with some of the major acts of the 70ís, including Steely Dan, Savoy Brown, Uriah Heep, Johnny Winter, The Pointer Sisters and Sammy Hagar, making five critically successful albums.
Glenn has led and performed in a great variety of bands on a freelance basis, relying on his enormous repertoire of jazz, blues, rhythm & blues, and even country & western. From 1986 to 1990, Glenn sang in a reformed ìZasu Pitts Memorial Orchestraî, a 14 piece soul band, doing (dÈj‡ vu) the songs of Otis, Wilson and James. Glenn is also in great demand as a voice talent for commercials and movies. Heís done many national radio and television campaigns for companies such as Levi-Strauss, E & J Gallo, Hersheyís Chocolate, and Mattel Toys, and provided singing and character voices for the Tim Burton animated film, ìThe Nightmare Before Christmasî, among others. Glenn also sang the radio themes for the S.F. Giants two years in a row.
In 1997 Glenn released his first solo effort, an independently produced C.D. titled ìGlenn Waltersî, on the Gazebertz Recordz label. In 1998 he sang two songs on the ìStrokeland Superbandî C.D., ìKick It Up a Stepî, produced by Doc Kupka and featuring Huey Lewis, Mickey Thomas, Bill Champlin, and several members of ìTower of Powerî. Another ìStrokelandî C.D., ìThe King of Retro Coolî, was released in late 2000, again with most of the members of ìTower of Powerî but this time with Glenn as the only featured vocalist and co-writer of several tracks.
