During an interview with Full Metal Jackie, Robb Flynn (Machine Head) revealed that he has “five songs tracked and done” for his upcoming Robb Flynn & Friends solo album. The record will feature various cover songs that the frontman has performed during his birthday shows.
Flynn said the following:
“For the last seven years now, for my birthday bash, I have a thing called ‘Robb Flynn & Friends’, and I get a bunch of my friends together and we just jam — it’s, like, cover songs. I don’t do MACHINE HEAD songs. It’s ’90s hip-hop, it’s classic rock, it’s some thrash — it’s all the kind of stuff that we grew up with, and it’s fun — it’s just a blast. We have so much fun doing it every time. I probably have, like, 30 to 40 different musicians playing. The last one that we did just turned out really good, and I was, like, ‘Let’s just track this.’ I own a recording studio now. I was, like, ‘Let’s go in and bang this out and see what happens.’ So we did it live, and it was just super fun.”
“I’ve got five songs tracked and done, and now I’m gonna go back and I’m gonna do — I’m think I’m gonna do the ’90s hip-hop groups. We did some Snoop Dogg songs and some other stuff. It’s pretty wild — it’s a loose, greasy, sweaty good time. And it’s just for fun. I don’t know when that’s gonna come out now. I know that [MACHINE HEAD’s record label] Nuclear Blast is loving it, and they love the whole concept, so hopefully [it will be released] soon.”
