CeeJ: I saw the video for the cover of MOTLEY CRÜE’S “Saint” in Los Angeles. VERSAILLES RECORDS had asked that you do that. A few questions on that…when you were asked to do the cover, how did you feel about it? Many bands say it was a business decision to do a cover.

And after many line-up changes, we met Nick when recording some of the new songs at BOB KULICK’S studio, where he was engineering, Nick introduced us to John and that's how our crazy circus came together. CeeJ: Edge of Paradise has seen many states here in the USA. I see you are on your way to Texas soon. How many states have you pl
