zzzzzzzzz......louis had me and my friend jon removed from a club in st. louis for getting his drummer (a good friend of ours) completly smashed onstage while performing, of course we were heckeling him as well, amazing the talent you can buy to record on your record---ps---kirksville mo says come back, all is forgiven-----zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............

Little known indie CD that appears around the St Louis, MO area from time to time. A sound amazingly like Survivor. There are some tracks on this disc which you would swear is a new Survivor track. This is an indie disc well worth seeking out by any collector of AOR/melodic rock. High quality stuff and great production (with top musicians). Dan says it went for $12 on E Bay!!!! Trust me, if the right person sold this disc, it would fetch over $50. All I can say is if you have the chance, 'GET IT

I used to attend the Holland, MI concerts by LM. He was wonderful to listen to AND to watch. Whatever happened to him? Any news about where he is and if he is still living his music? Let me know via this site! PS...Louis, friends of mine stole your poster for me and I have it in the workout room! Good incentive to get in shape!

From: Update Date: October 29, 2003 at 18:02
The band broke up. Louis is performing piano on his own and teaching (I think). Matt is playing for a new band called Mesh stl.

It's great to read the comments! I went back to school and got my Bachelors and Masters degrees in jazz performance. I now teach music theory at Lewis & Clark Community College and perform several nights a week in the St. Louis area. Usually I play at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel, Jimmy's Cafe On the Park, Hannigan's, or Gabrielles. I threw away about 5 cases each of cds and cassettes of this collection. I had no idea anyone was still interested. lmichae@charter.net

Louis,I used to see you at "calypso's in holland mich.I sure do miss your live music.It's been a long time.I am still listening to the cd you gave me "LIVING FOR THE MUSIC".I miss talking with you and the band after the club closed.I just riped the cd to my computer and had to drop you a line or two to let you know that you are missed in these parts.good by for now,Bill.

From: Tammy H. Date: May 24, 2004 at 18:28
I too used to see Louis at Calypso's in Holland MI. Great show. Recently my 7 year old daughter ran across this CD and she loved it to. She may have a little crush over you Louis. She actually kisses your cover photo and took it for show-n-tell! beandaud@aol.com

My brother bought this piece for 86 dollar on ebay, but in my opinion there are just a couple of good tracks. Comparing this one to survivor is plain stupid.

From: peter poland Date: October 23, 2004 at 7:39
It's hard to admit it, because i was expecting a lot from this album , and when i finally gave it a couple of listens, i have to say it sucks.Basiclly i can't call it's AOR, where are the melodies ? Only 2 tracks (decent ones) are listeable for aor music lover

From: oliver Date: December 30, 2004 at 6:35
yes i agree, can´t call it aor. imo this a 80s clone of josh kadison. no remarkable songs, no catchy tunes. very average release, absolutely not worth that much money some people are paying. 5/10

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: May 31, 2005 at 13:56
La verdad es q no es nada del otro mundo,si,la producción es bastante buena,el tio se maneja bien con la voz y los instrumentos suenan bastante bien pero en lo mas importante,osea las canciones nanai,no digo q sean malas pero les falta gancho.Su música por momentos recuerda a Elton John sobretodo en lo que son los cortes o extractos mas pianeros aunq la verdad no son los mejores pues los momentos que puede despertar algo de interés este disco es cuando le mete algo de intensidad a su música.PSE.

Excellent AOR gem. I have been a collector for quite sometime and I just found it for $1.99 in a used bin at The Wherehouse. If you like Micheal O'Brian and Eddie Money you will like this slab of brilliance! 10/10

From: Heavy.AOR Date: October 31, 2006 at 6:12
GOLD 9/10.This stuff really great i no love ballads for this only 9 .But here is a great songs like a Live a Long Time,superb song "Not Giving Up" good riffs and Living for the Music,Secrets.For AOR fans Brilliant.

From: juan carlos Date: September 15, 2010 at 12:59
Totally agree with Champions, it´s easy t describe this album the piano ballads reminds me of Elton John and the voice of Louis is very cool, great singer indeed, very good production but the music is just ok. "Not Giving Up" and "Living for the Music" are good songs and my favorite tracks. "Lay With Me" is a very jazzy song, just ok. 7.8/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 1, 2014 at 19:37
Jazz,Rock,Lite AOR,Westcoast...probably is what Louis wanted to record...a mix of those genres which in my personal opinion enriches the album as it can be appealing for many listeners..."Living For The Music" is my fave song in here...some other good tracks are "I Believe","Live A Long Time","Not Giving Up" & "Secrets"...83/100
