Passing of a musical icon: Jimmy Greenspoon of The New Dimensions

Submitted by ArtGuy on March 14, 2015.

I'm sad to report that Jimmy Greenspoon, internationally renowned keyboard player, founding member of the New Dimensions band and iconic rockers 3 Dog Night, has passed away following a short, but intense battle with brain cancer.

Last summer, five of the six original members of The New Dimensions reunited after more than 50 years to create a new CD, celebrating the original roots of our music. Jimmy had been flying in to L.A. and Michael Lloyd's studio in Beverly Hills, CA, between touring and performances with 3 Dog, to record with the band. In addition, the band was signed to an agreement for a full length documentary, following the history of the New Dimensions from its inception to present day.

Jimmy was passionate about surfing music, even after all these years. If there is anything positive to report; it is that we were able to complete about 6 tracks of new, original material with Jimmy, prior to diagnosis of his illness. Fortunately, both Michael and Jimmy studied under the same piano teachers early on and with the extensive array of music they completed together both in the studio with Michael as producer and touring with major acts, Michael has agreed to assume the role of keyboard player in addition to his creative expertise and musicianship on bass and lead guitar. The remaing band members including yours truly on drums, Craig Nuttycombe on rhythm guitar and Danny Belsky on sax and flute will carry on to complete the new recording. Initial filming for the documentary is scheduled to commence in April. Following that, we will once again enter the studio to work on the album.

Thanks to everyone for your positive messages, personal wishes for Jimmy's well being and in his passing, your comments, thoughts and prayers for Jimmy and his family. This kind, compassionate and incredibly talented musician, composer and author will be sadly missed by us all.

My best,

Art Guy

Terror Of The Del-Vipers CD Out On Double Crown Records

Submitted by Double-Crown-Records on March 10, 2015.

Del Vipers


The Del-Vipers originally hit the Austin, TX scene during the belly scorching summer of 2010. Guitarist Ross Ott and drummer Sam Rich having left their full time touring schedules in previous musical endeavors were looking for something to push creativity to new levels while, you know, having a few beers. Original bassist Derek "Spooky Vam Peers" Miller completed the bill and together they took their love for a time when rock n' roll was fresh and exciting... to the beach!

Influenced heavily by original guitar megaliths like Dick Dale and The Ventures as well as the more obscure underbelly of the genre and a propensity for the WEIRD, The Del-Vipers bathed themselves in reverb and hit the streets of Austin to bring their earth-shattering instrumental holocaust to the world. Playing everywhere from the historical Continental Club to annual bashes at the Texas State Drag Racing Championships, the 3-piece continued their wet & wild journey into the hearts & loins of surf lovers worldwide.

With new bass wrangler Dave “Cheeseburger Breakfast” Hawkins onboard, the band hit the studio for a single day in January ’14 to lay to tape what would become their compelling debut record, “Terror of the Del-Vipers”. The band self-released a “Limited Cassette” version of the album later that year but have recently joined forces with the almighty Double Crown Records to release it on Compact Disc for this the two-thousand fifteenth year of our lord (Dick Dale). It’s safe to say there is no telling what's next in line for the fabulous Del-Vipers!

Tracks: Teenage Crimewave - Creepy T - The Sonic Deterrent - Tecate Run - LA - Disaster Magnet - Anesthesia - Monsoon Surf - Sex Cauldron - The Angry Man - Matango - Goloash - Mortuary Cosmetics - Nova

The Del-Vipers - Terror Of The Del-Vipers CD - DCCD60 - $12.75
Click to order from Double Crown Records

BONUS TRACK: Order direct from us, or join the Double Crown Music Club, and receive a FREE bonus track - the Del-Vipers version of "Bumble Bee Twist (The Wasp)" by The Ventures!

CD's will ship to Double Crown Music Club members next week - pre-orders will ship by March 24th at the latest.
