They inspired so many artists and so many have no idea how influential guys like that have on artists even today. Many don’t even know who they are, this is why it was so important to do this project with Randy. Randy, although he would never admit it, is a living rock legend.  I hope you enjoy the track, I know Randy and DPaul are very proud of it and so am I”. – Tom Stokes, CEO LOUD Media/Entertainment - Ashes to Eagles Management Team.

We mix old school rock 'n' roll philosophies with new age technology as we maintain a LOUD and enthusiastic Spirit while keeping a rocktistic freedom approach”.

About ASHES of EAGLES: This American ROCK BAND formed in Dallas, Texas, December 2012 by Guitarist DPaul and comprising of Australian Front man Scott Lathwood, with Dallas Natives Steven G Knight on Bass and Mike Gray on Drums.

Following in the footsteps of iconic American Rock Bands such as Motley Crue, Foo Fighters and Shinedown aren't that easy. However, when you hear the emotion come pouring out of Vocalist Scott Lathwood, combined with the edgy riffs and epic guitar solo's of DPaul, it makes you realize that ASHES of EAGLES has that rare mixture of style, swagger and charisma that will make them stand out from the rest. Accompanied by a solid rhythm section, Steven G Knight creates the powerfully fat, bottom end of Ashes of Eagles, whilst Micheal Gray drives the band with his speed and power.

The band is perhaps best known for their live shows, which are typically loud, heavy and tight with a powerful energy and emotion, which has earned them support slots for several touring international bands, including Kiss, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, Journey, Steve Miller Band, Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, AFI, Alient Ant Farm and Dokken.
