GH on Mike Porcaro's Brotherly Love

  • Hi,

    Mike Porcaro is releasing a live album in memory of his brother Jeff.
    It was recorded in Koblenz, Germany in late March 2002 and features Glenn on some songs (among others: Hendrix' 'Manic Depression and Al Green's 'Let's Stay Together'). I believe Glenn also joined the all-star band with Rosanna and Africa.

    The album will be released in Japan first.


  • That's correct, although Glenn is featured on 6 songs, "Rosanna", "Manic Depression", "Georgy Porgy", "Lowdown", "English Eyes" and "Let's Stay Together".

    The album was originally released January in Japan, but is now getting a release worldwide.
