Electric Gypsy Bernie Tormé, former guitarist for Ian Gillan and Ozzy Osbourne, has released a track from his PledgeMusic-funded new album.
The new track, Crash ‘N’ Burn, is available now to all those who’ve pledged money to fund Bernie’s new album. The album is the latest in a series of successful PledgeMusic campaigns, from the likes of Slash, Ginger Wildheart, Katatonia and The Hold Steady.
With 92 days to go, the campaign is 254% funded, but fans can still dip into their wallets to claim a series of rewards: £25 gets you a signed double CD, £100 gets you the opportunity to jam with the band at a forthcoming live show, while the extremely deep-of-pocket can fork over £66,000 for the 1964 Lake Placid Blue Stratocaster given to the guitarist by Ozzy Osbourne days after the death of Randy Rhodes. You’ll be doing some good at the sometime: 10% of all pledges will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.
The guitarist says, ““I hope you become part of this album and pledge, and if so I thank you for your generosity and for your continued support over so many years - and thank you from my heart for enabling me to do the thing I love most, to make music for you”.
