Timberlake: Very Impressive

Heavy Glow recently recorded an EP at Velvet Revolver’s L.A. studio with guitarist/producer Stevie Salas.

“Slash’s guitar was there,” says front man Jared, “and I played it while we recorded. I met [GNR/VR drummer] Matt Sorum. Big dude. The kind of guy that would definitely kick your ass. Nice, though, and very funny. Definitely a rock star.… While we were there, we stole our fair share of Velvet Revolver guitar picks and Duff’s bass picks as souvenirs.”

During the recording, Salas invited Jared to a Record Plant session for T.I.’s new album, with Justin Timberlake producing.

“Before I went into the studio,” says Jared, “I honestly didn’t know who T.I. was. All I remember is that he was wearing purple.… Timberlake and T.I. were both pretty chill. I didn’t talk to them too much, because I didn’t want to be that guy.… Justin had some great melodic ideas for the songs…very intuitive and very impressive knowledge of appropriate chord changes and melodies. He came off as the kind of person who wants to push the boundaries.… I remember him saying, ‘Once in a while, you get to be the lucky son of a bitch that gets to take chances,’ or something to that effect.”

While Heavy Glow was recording, actor Michael Wincott (The Assassination of Richard Nixon) also dropped by the Velvet Revolver studio. “He ended up playing the drums with us for about 20 minutes,” says Jared. “Cool guy. We gave him a pair of sticks, so he’d let us take a picture with him.”
