Hey the siblings in this band Lilaic got to play at NAMM and are on going to be on the TV show "The World's Best." I've been hoping they would make it famous.. we'll see. Their parents are from Transylvania.
You mean like The Beatles, Keith Richards or the Edge playing Epiphone Casino's? Or Pete Townsend that played a Wilshire for years? Those guys?Love it. I grew up on that type of stuff. Nice to see the guitarist isn't playing some lame assed Epiphone but real quality guitar.
So I just got this skinny on this...
I guess AGT had invited them to come several times and they finally accepted after they finished a tour and recording their album. Apparently the crowd was already cheering them before they started because they knew the band. When Sam started his solo (which was cut) the crowd was on their feet cheering like mad. When Melody did that awesome scream that you hear on the video it was much longer but was cut and the crowd went crazy again. And of course they got a standing ovation and got passed on to the second round.
The reason their performance was cut short was because AGT wanted them to sign a contract with Simon's company and after their lawyer viewed it he advised them not to sign it so they had to drop out... they didn't want to sell out. They wanted to play one of their original songs or Dio or Metallica on the audition but they were not allowed.. and because they are a rock and metal band they didn't want someone telling them what to play. They were also only going to get 1% of the profits and have to work six days a week if they won. Lots of crazy back gound stuff I never knew.
