Matt Lashoff might become the first person to play the Aud twice — as a hockey player and rock star.

“That would be a blast absolutely,” said the former Kitchener Rangers defenceman. “I’m definitely going to try and get out and play some shows.”

 . . . It was in Beantown where Lashoff was first noticed. Los Angeles producer Loren Harriet heard about the rink rat with a passion for rocking out and put the plan in motion to record Living On Heart. Lashoff was backed by seasoned session musicians, some of whom played with Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton and John Mellencamp, among others. Read more . . .

Here's an abstract from a recent article by Jack Curry at YesNetwork.com

. . . Anyway, since Williams will be making his first appearance at Old-Timers' Day for the Yankees on Sunday, it seemed like the perfect time for another story that blended baseball and music. After the Yankees won the 1998 World Series, Williams was among a group of musically-talented major leaguers who were asked to perform a live show in Orlando, Florida. The players were supplemented by a house band and several other musicians. Those musicians included Clarence Clemons, the cool saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. Clemons, of course, died of complications from a stroke on June 18.

Loren Harriett, who subsequently produced Williams’s two albums, coordinated the players and the band 13 years ago. Harriet’s plan was to have Clemons burst on stage to help the band play “Glory Days,” a Springsteen about a baseball player who constantly harkens back to his early years.

Loren interviewed by berniewilliams.net

I was hoping you could fill the readers in a little bit about your record company, other artists you have produced, or maybe how you got into producing.

LH:  I have a production company called LGH Productions. I've been producing albums for about 15 years now.  The artists range from traditional recording artists from the world of music, to non-traditional recording artists from the world of sports, film and television.  I got into producing many years ago as I met various top session musicians in the music industry.  It was fun to go into the studio with them, along with the recording artist and have the recording artists' project come alive.  Some of my projects are at my website www.lorenharriet.com, though the site needs to be updated.  Read more at http://www.berniewilliams.net
