John Brewster Recorded All His Guitar Parts for ‘Ninety Nine’ Album In Hotel Rooms

The Angels cofounder and rhythm guitarist John Brewster had a close call when a heart attack put him out of action when The Angels started recording their new album ‘Ninety Nine’. John had to make up his parts later in hotel rooms while on tour on Red Hot Summer with Cheap Trick earlier this year.

“I came in at the tail end of it,” John tells “They went into the studio and did all their things while I was getting over my heart problem. I did all my guitar parts in hotel rooms. I had to. We had to get this album done. We had to make sure we released this album when we went on the road. ’50 Not Out’ without an album is not a good idea”.

Watch the complete John Brewster Noise11 interview:

‘Ninety Nine’, the title track was not even written by Rick or John Brewster. It was written by former drummer and now new lead singer Nick Norton and bass player of the past 11 years, John’s son Sam.

John says, “I just think that’s fantastic. Of course, my son Tom is now playing on drums. It’s just the way those guys have stepped up and delivered songs like that. I just think it’s a great song. It was an easy decision to put that out as our first single. We will be doing that song on every night of this tour we are doing.”
