James Christian was a friend of Nancy Krasn. Nancy wrote the words to the song that James sings on the Lost Demos CD called, Rattle Your Cage. The original vocalist on the song however was Arthur Micheev formerly of the Soviet band Avtograph. Arthur and I had already cut a demo of Rattle Your Cage with a band we were doing called Siberia. Arthur's Russian accent was pretty strong on that demo.

Nancy, in the mean time, was shopping the song to people she knew. A music supervisor doing an HBO production heard the song and wanted to use it on the soundtrack. He asked that the lead vocal be rerecorded.

Nancy and I went into the studio and pulled Arthur's lead vocal and replaced it with James. Having James on the track was just a lucky break. The first singer who was hired just wasn't right for the song. As a last minute effort to save the recording session, Nancy said she could call another singer friend, James Christian.

As luck would have it, he was home and offered to help out. 2 hours later, all done.
