Waiting for the Big One
In his CD, Waiting For The Big One, multi-instrumentalist Tom Lang creates hard driving, singable hooks with loops, full band tracks and positive lyrics. Influences from songsmiths Bruce Hornsby, Don Henley, Sheryl Crow and Shania Twain lend a pop sensibility and emotion to this CD. Tom's multi-instrumental and singing abilities have served him well over the years. He was tapped for guitar, keyboards and singing duties with Australian legend Jimmy Barnes. Starting with 65 dates opening for ZZ Top thoughout the USA Tom continued on with Jimmy for another 5 headline tours of Australia playing everything from the local workers' clubs to headlining giant outdoor stadium tours across Australia and New Zealand. One of these tours was filmed and released in Australia as a feature length movie called 'Australian Made'. Later,Tom was called by Australia's Divinyls (I Touch Myself, Pleasure and Pain) to play on their Tempermental album at Sunset Sound in Hollywood with producer Mike Chapman who has produced Blondie, Pat Benatar and Ozzie Osbourne. On the final morning after finishing the recording Tom was awakened by a serious 6.4 earthquake in Hollywood! This lead to a deep understanding of this natural phenomena that needed venting and which later became a song and CD title: Waiting For The Big One.
