James Durbin Hits The Studio With Mötley Crüe Guitarist

American Idol‘s James Durbin is getting ready to unleash his rock upon the world with the release of his debut album, Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster (out November 21). In this brief sneak peek at his time in the studio, the Top 4 Idol reveals that he’s recorded three songs so far, and shares his enthusiasm for working with Mick Mars of Mötley Crüe. Head below to catch a glimpse of the heavy metal lover’s studio sessions.

    Mick Mars was in the studio on 14/9 so this vid was filmed then. James tweeted on 3/10 that it was his last day of recording and that he recorded the last song so his album is now complete. With that out of the way:

    The guitar riff kicks MF ass! Mick is as awesome as ever and I cannot wait to here this song in full and the rest of the album too, 21/11 can’t get here soon enough!

  • Justin

    Count me as another person waiting impatiently for this CD!

  • Rob

    Mick’s track was the best on this album, but there are some excellent songs, Higher Than Heaven, Stand Up, and May, which could be a real sleeper hit. A nice start for James but I’m hoping every song on his next album rocks as hard as Outcast.
