Murdoch continued to lead the band through several lineup changes and a succession of three different lead singers: David Hanselmann (on Using The Head, later with Triumvirat), Anna Haigis (on their track from the Brain Festival live album) and Sammy Kunig (on their last two albums: Astral Journeys and Miles of Smiles). 3) The history of Message is an impressive one and the band’s founder member Dean Fasano has been involved with many musicians, song-writers and singers along the way. The story first began in the early eighties when Message were playing the New Jersey circuit featuring Dean on vocals, Alec Jon Such on bass and Richie Sambora on guitar. An up and coming band called “Jon Bon Jovi and the Wild Ones” were one of the acts playing support to Message at this early time and both Alec and Richie of Message later hooked up with Jon and the rest, as they say, is history. In the nineties Dean has continued writing and producing with many big names and has contributed to Richie Sambora’s solo record “Stranger in this Town” and more recently put backing vocals to Jon Bon Jovi’s “Destination Anywhere” album. The original Message album was released as a self-titled CD in the mid 90’s by Long Island records, Germany together with bonus tracks. It became a best seller for the company.
In addition the FEMS label in Japan put out the release under it’s original title “Lessons”. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
