Congratulations to Arnaud Leger (from Westcoast Rendez-Vous staff) who has designed the frontcover of David Roberts new album entitled "Better Late Than Never" just released on Vivid Sound label in Japan. It's David Roberts first LP since his legendary album "All Dressed Up" back in 1982 considered as a Westcoast Music/AOR masterpiece.
In early February 2008, Arnaud has imagined and designed the frontcover of Peter Friestedt "The L.A. Project II" LP for the Japanese release on Vivid Sound too.
Soon, new cover designs from Arnaud especially for another artistry in Westcoast Music. Stay tuned!
See here Arnaud's work in AOR/Westcoast Music.

The concert of the band Chicago on July 29, 2008 at the Casino de Paris, Paris, France was quite exceptional although James Pankow and Walter Parazaider weren't in the band for this European tour (Nick Lane and Ray Hermann replaced them). In The Casino de Paris, the concert was sold out with a real great ambiance and a lot of blasts from the past as well as more recent material (80s, 90s and the latest years). More than 135 minutes for a great gig. Let's imagine Chicago hasn't played live in Paris since 1976!! The audience was fabulous and quite expressive!
If you have assisted to this concert or one of the Chicago concerts in Europe, please put your opinion and reviews in the comments of this message.
