ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Text for Articles/Bio for D:Drive:

Don Mancuso's D:Drive project was put into motion upon the completion of recording tracks for Phil Naro's last release Glass Mountain at Wellesley Studio in Toronto Canada.
Don and long time friend Phil Naro decided to join forces with Steve Major as co-writer/producer. Once 5 of the ideas were etched out and basic tracks recorded, Don's
Friend/Ex-Foreigner/Black Sheep singer Lou Gramm was in town on break from the last Lou Gramm Band tour and gave the tunes a listen. He was so impressed at what he heard that he asked if there was any way that he could come in as a guest vocalist/co-writer. The rest of the story is documented on this hard rocking CD. Lou and Don had written "Wait till the Sun Goes Down" during the Foreigner 4 tour and decided to put that one on as well as some great tunes written by Naro and Mancuso and a remake of the Beatles "Hey Bull Dog". On the song "Your Never Alone" (which was written for a friend dying of cancer) extra contributions came from long time friend/producer/musician Tony Gross of GFI Studio.
The core band consists of Don Mancuso (Black Sheep, Cheater, Linda Rutherford & Celtic Fire, Lou Gramm Band) Phil Naro (Talas, Peter Cris, 24 K), Lou Gramm ( Black Sheep, Foreigner, Shadow King, Lou Gramm Band), Dave Quick (Kid Kurry Band), Joe Lana (Uncle Plum), Andy Knoll (Lou Gramm Band) and Richard Gramm (Black Sheep, Lou Gramm Band).
Other guest musicians appearing on the CD are: Jeff Cosco, Jim Crean, Jessie Hamilton, Larry Crozier and Brian Eggleston.

Website BIO
Born in Rochester, New York Don Mancuso has been firmly entrenched in the music scene since the day he picked up his first guitar. By age 18, he was playing professionally with blues rock band Black Sheep, which featured Lou Gramm who eventually became the voice of super-group Foreigner. Black Sheep toured nationally opening for Procol Harem, Ted Nugent, Argent, Hall & Oats, Peter Frampton and Kiss to name a few.
Black Sheep was the first American act signed to Chrysalis Records and released one single on this label before releasing 2 albums on Capital Records. Don was a major contributor to the writing on these efforts.
Following the disbanding of Black Sheep Don explored rock/fusion with a group called Aurora along with studying classical guitar and doing studio work in NYC with Ian Lloyd of Stories.
Within a year, Don moved on to another group which quickly took the Northeast by storm called Cheater. Cheater released a 10 inch EP called Ten Cent Love Affair which brought them to the forefront of the regional music scene.
Don was once again working with Lou Gramm on pre-production and recording of the album Ready Or Not.
Recording projects since then include Imaginary Few, Johnny Smoke, Linda Rutherford & Celtic Fire (who appeared at Woodstock 99 for amp3.com on the emerging artist stage), Steve Robb "Under This Roof" (Gospel recording), Red Heart "Bridge", Don Mancuso "Now You See It" (solo album), Phil Naro "Glass Mountain" and Jessica Hamilton.
Presently Don has completed and released his second solo endeavor entitled "D:DRIVE", which features Lou Gramm, Phil Naro, Jeff Cosco, Jessica Hamilton, Dave Quick, Joe Lana, Larry Crozier, Brian Egglestein and Andy Knoll.
Don continues to add the golden touch that has provided a creative edge to every venture he's been involved with. Don has been called up! He is now playing guitar for the Lou Gramm Band Tour! His versatility, professionalism and incredible artistry have made him one of the most respected and admired guitarists on the national music scene and among his peers.

Awesome CD
This is one of the best CD's that has come out this century (I know its only been 6 years, but still says alot) Its by far the best AOR CD that i have heard in ages. I am an 18 year old, and have come in at the tail end of rock and roll peak, thank god for people like Don and Lou who still rock. It gives people like me a great oppurtunity to still listen to great NEW rock and roll. Can't wait to hear whats next from this guy. If you are a fan of AOR, FOREIGNER, JOURNEY, BOSTON, or any type of rock, youll love this CD. No wishy washy ballads here, just good creative and fun rock. Rock on DON!

Buy this CD!
Masterful rock guitar work. If you're a guitarist you need this CD in your collection. Vocal work throughout is as good as rock gets, and the addition of Lou Gramm is the frosting on the cake. Buy it!

Great cd
This cd is one of the best I've heard in a while.Having Lou Gramm (formerly of Foreigner) along for the ride doesn't hurt either. He sings lead vocals on a few of the tracks.All the music is great and all the musicians and vocalists sound fantastic.Worth taking a look at.

The cd speaks for itself. Some of the best vocals and music I've heard in a long
The singing is effortless and powerful. The music is just as effortless and powerful as the singing. There's somgs on this cd that satisfy a wide variety of rock and roll tastes. I hope there's a second cd from this group and this isn't a onetime effort.
