what do you care?

WHAT DO YOU CARE?

This video was a Top 20 featured song on Neil Young's Living With War website.

"I was watching Jewel singing on TV. She was singing a very heartfelt song and suddenly I start wondering what make of guitar she's playing, which made me then think what do I care what kind of guitar she's playing? shouldn't I be more concerned about the song and the emotion she's attempting to convey? With that thought in mind I ignored the rest of her song and wrote this one." - Ray Kainz

the queen's party

THE QUEEN'S PARTY

The Queen and the Joker have a love/hate relationship. They love to hate each other!

But at the end of the day-
"There's almost always a way
to get away.
From all that gets in the way, 'tween me and you"

free range chicken

FREE RANGE CHICKEN

Here's a fun instrumental with plenty of tasty chicken pickin'. No chickens were harmed in the making of this song and video (the chickens were all ready dead prior to filming)

don't tell the queen

DON'T TELL THE QUEEN

I have lived my life
with my head in hole
the hole is in the heavens
and the heavens are a haven that
I'm glad to know

If I take my head out
head out of the hole
all the truth that's in the heavens
about fallen angel fellons
spills all over the floor

A pretty big mess for the bishops to clean - just don't tell the Queen!

CHOKE by KAZY

The hit single CHOKE by Chicago's favorite emo/goth/grunge band KAZY. CHOKE was featured in the critically acclaimed Scarface the World is Yours video game by Vivendi Universal as well as a couple of full length feature movies.

This video featured pre-beard Ray, but the eye-liner and black finger nails compensate for the lack of facial hair. 

honey

HONEY by NOMAD CITY
 

Ray Kainz slinging his signature blues/rock guitar licks in his NOMAD CITY classic!

didn't have a gun

DIDN'T HAVE A GUN
by NOMAD CITY

Ray Kainz wields some wicked bluesy slide guitar on this number he co-wrote. Ray is known for his incredible guitar tone and this song is a prime example of that. Gibson guitars, Marshall amps, Austin Speaker Works speakers, and a few little boxes filled with rocket sauce is really all it takes.
