WARNING FROM JERRY
Elvis' long time bass player has issued a warning to fans regarding a story on this
According to Jerry Scheff, the new recording of his work “Fire Down Below”’, which
is being promoted by Wolfgang Hahn (aka Wolf Memphis) is a rip-off and it seems
that the Austrian singer has simply sung to an existing recording of the original
track which was featured on the FTD release, "Jungle Room Sessions", in an
attempt to release the recording as his ownEvidently, the Austrian singer
overdubbed an existing recording, trying to make it look as his own version.
This is what Jerry had to say:
Hello my friends, This is Jerry Scheff.
I have heard recently that a release of my song 'Fire Down Below' is being
promoted by Wolfgang Hahn in Austria for the 16th August 2005.
I have no agreements for either performance, publishing or distribution with him or
any company he represents.
He is also claiming it as a recording with the original TCB Band. If this is the case
he has used material which he has no rights to and may be a demo quality
Neither I or the TCB have been consulted or co operated in any way with this
product. I understand that Wolfgang has dubbed his own voice over our
performance in the past 3 days and is racing to benefit from the Elvis week events
It particularly saddens me to see the anniversary of Elvis' death exploited for
personal gain in this way. I urge you to let as many people as you can know of the
truth of this situation.
An official TCB Band CD of Fire Down Below can be found on my website or I
eagerly invite you to wait until the version sung by Austrian Dennis Jale is
releasing in October 2005 with which I have been fully and professionally involved.
Dennis is a real singer: not a rip off artist. Also, Dennis's CD will also include
another song I wrote for Elvis called 'That's When The Real Love Begins'.
Thanks for your support for the TCB Band.
All the best
