The former guitarist of The Hellacopters and current guitarist of Backyard Babies and the Michael Monroe Band, Dregen, has released his highly anticipated first solo-album on 25th September 2013 via Universal Music, simply entitled "Dregen". Now, the second single from Dregen, "Flat Tyre On A Muddy Road", has been released, along with a music video:
Not only the choice of his duet partner Titiyo surprises when it comes to "Flat Tyre On A Muddy Road". Internationally, Titiyo is probably best known for her hit "Come Along" in 2001. No, Andreas Tyrone Dregen also surprises with a bald head in the video - and it's not the handiwork of a make-up artist! Dregen:
"[…] here is the answer to all of you who have asked about why I've been wearing a hat or bandana for the last six months:
-I became a dad.
-I was writing and recording my solo-album.
-I was writing and recording the Michael Monroe album.
-I wrote a 330 pages autobiography.
-I was touring.
-All at the same time! So my hair fell off. Overnight. All of it. The doctor call it "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder".
It will grow back though. And luckily I don't play or write with my hair ;) It could have been worse. I could have lost my fingers.
Hope you dig the video!"
We surely do and congratulate him and Titiyo on this awesome duet!
Dregen is currently on tour, in December 2013 even with his former bandmate in The Hellacopters, Nicke Andersson. It will be a European co-headline tour of Dregen and Imperial State Electric.
