Hi Lincoln, my name is Rodney Shaw. I have an ES-335, that is in a good as or maybe better condition than most reissue guitars now available (Strats and Gibsons). It was built in 1959-1960 and contains fingerboard woods that are no longer available to current reissue guitars now available. If you are interested as a collector, you may see it and play it at my home. During your telcon with me you assured me that your father was an expert on Gibson guitars, so if you wanted hiim to view it also he is welcome to come. The current crop of 335’s that I have seen, seem to have finger boards that are ate up, or front and backs that are all scratiched, you will be surprised. Rodney Shaw

The Story of Steve Perry’s Second Solo LP, ‘For the Love of Strange Medicine’

Between his smash hits with Journey and his Street Talk  solo record, Steve Perry spent much of the '80s dominating radio's rock and Top 40 formats, not to mention MTV.

So when he lapsed into a prolonged hiatus following Journey's breakup after 1986's Raised on Radio LP, it came as something of a surprise. As the '80s wore on into the '90s, Perry went from arena-filling rock star to rarely seen recluse. But even if he was working at a slower pace than fans may have liked, Perry hadn't walked away from music, and he proved it with the July 19, 1994, release of his second solo effort, For the Love of Strange Medicine .

The record's long-awaited arrival came only after a lengthy period in which Perry completed, then scrapped, an album's worth of material -- some of which would only surface with the release of the Greatest Hits + Five Unreleased compilation in 1998. "I wrote 13 songs," he explained in a 1991 interview. "Then I started the 'record thing,' you know, tracking, overdubs, vocals, mixing, etc. During this time, my life began to change and when I finished, I realized that some of the things I feel today were not reflected in the total picture as I looked back at the project. So ... here I am on another wave of creativity."

"I can only continue to work on the record like a painting," he added in a separate interview. "When it’s done you pull back and say, ‘I’m dropping the brush. I don’t want to put any more paint on this.’ That’s the balance, to know when to stop. I understand that, but at the same time I’m really enjoying the making of this record and when you do something you enjoy doing, it’s kind of hard to stop."

The sessions found Perry working with a new band whose ranks included keyboardist Paul Taylor, late of Winger . "He's a very creative guy. He comes up with some of the most beautiful chord changes I've heard in a long time," Perry said in a 1993 interview with the Journey Force newsletter. "We call him 'bridges while you wait' because he can come up with a bridge just like that. I'll go, 'We need something right here. Don't think, just play it' and he'll do something great. It's been fantastic writing with him."

Lincoln Brewster, Perry's guitarist for the album, was plucked from obscurity through his association with Perry's friend and former bassist Randy Jackson. "There were so many people in this town that could play a lot of chops but they really had no feel. The more I looked, the more disappointing it felt. There wasn't a whole lot of heart in their playing," Perry recalled . "Randy called and said he was given this tape a kid had made in his home studio. The songs were unfinished, but they stood on their own; they were so pretty. I was standing here in this room listening to the tape and I could feel that there was something behind his playing. There was soul there. I called him and we talked for a long time. He was living at home with his mom at the time."

Listen to Steve Perry's 'Listen to Your Heart'

Perry found his new drummer, Moyes Lucas, Jr., through similarly fortuitous circumstances. "Paul, Link and I were at a rehearsal place here in Los Angeles and we were just jamming and having a lot of fun. We were thinking we might put something together, but nothing was for sure. We were going through some drummers trying to find someone who would click with us. We went through quite a few drummers, but no one was right," he explained . "One day we were jamming and trying people out when this guy, Moyes, knocks on the door and says he would like to audition. I looked over at the drummer that was playing at the moment and I realized that if I cut him a little short and then pushed the next guy back a little bit, we could work Moyes in. He came in and set up and we could tell from watching him tune up his kit that he was different. We knew right away. We started jamming and writing a song."

"It was very collaborative," he later reflected of the songwriting process. "There were so many songs on the record that were written in a group rehearsal situation, because that was the best place to test drive them -- like a fast car."

Even if it bore the stamp of outside influences, the heart of the album was very much Perry's. "The lyrics on this record are all about truthful experiences -- things that are going on in my life," he insisted . "Each song is different. Paul, Link, Moyes and I did most of the writing. Sometimes Paul and I will start with a lyric and Link would come in and add something. Sometimes Lincoln and Paul would do the chord changes and the melody and then I will come in and start singing over it. I wrote some of the lyrics by myself, and one with ['70s soft rock hitmaker] Stephen Bishop."

After so long between albums, and so much time spent with the material, Perry was understandably reluctant to put a bow on the album and let it out in the wild. "Each song's like a child to me. They become my kids it's so hard to let them go," he admitted . "Once I'm done, they're grown up. They're gonna fall down; they're gonna make mistakes out there, some people are gonna love 'em and some are gonna hate 'em. It's out of my hands. Out of my hands."

Ultimately, the overall reaction to For the Love of Strange Medicine ended up being somewhere between those two extremes. Although the single "You Better Wait" broke the Top 40 and the album was certified gold for sales of over half a million copies, it wasn't anywhere near the level of chart-topping, multi-platinum success he'd enjoyed during the previous decade, and its release did little to quell the constant question of a Journey reunion.

Those thoughts were only furthered by the record's pensive closing track, "Anyway," a song Perry admitted was inspired by the band's demise, particularly "my participation in some of the things we did to each other as people." Saying it was "difficult to write," he continued, "It was also difficult to put on the record, but I included it for no other reason than me wanting to say how things were from my side of the street. ... I felt this song was something I needed to say. ... I'm not pointing a finger anywhere except at me. If someone else wants to talk about their side of things, they'll do that when it's their time."

One presumes there was plenty of talking about the various sides of the Journey breakup when the band reconvened for 1996's Trial by Fire LP, but in the meantime, Perry remained focused on his solo career -- and grateful for the fact that an audience was still willing to listen. As he put it in the promotional making-of video for Strange Medicine , "I'm just fortunate to be able to sing and express myself in a way that other people like to hear."

  • Lincoln Brewster: In Spirit and Truth

By Ann Marie Chilton   •   May 15, 2008

As a former guitarist and composer with platinum-selling rock band Journey , Lincoln now chooses to openly praise God with his talent, and through his message, encourages others to follow Jesus Christ.

He and his band played at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., where we had a chance to sit down with him.

Q/ You’re a “worship leader,” so why exactly do we worship?

A/ In terms of what it does for the believer, the Bible says that God inhabits the praises of His people. The Bible also says that times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord. So when we worship and we praise God, He’s there. He shows up, and that brings refreshing and encouragement.

For me, if I had to go back to when God really did something in my heart and really changed me, a lot of that happened just in moments during worship–and during preaching as well, hearing the Word. But my heart was softened during the worship, and then you want to hear. It can be a lifter in different ways.

We worship because God commands it. It’s all about relationship. If you look through the Bible, God is always about relationship.

Interesting thing, when we look at Jesus, he was probably the hardest on the Pharisees, but really they were some of the most holy living people of the day. Why would you be hard on those guys? Well it was all heart, authenticity, intent, relationship. God is way more focused on the inward things than on the outward things for sure.

When you start to break it down, true worship is in spirit and in truth. It’s got to be honest. You can go through the motions, but you don’t get worship credit just for showing up during the music time at church.

The Romans 12 thing is that we would all offer our bodies as living sacrifices, and that is our reasonable act of worship.

“…Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship” (Romans 12:1, NIV).

And clearly when you look at people, it’s by design that we worship. It’s what we were made for. We worship everything under the sun, so we don’t have a worship issue: we’ve got a direction issue.

Q/ How can worship be evangelistic?

A/ I struggled with this question when we moved out to Bayside. Bayside is a highly evangelistic church, and here I am really worship focused … I didn’t know how my wife and I were going to fit in, or how that was going to work.

And one day, I just remember God going, “If My name be lifted up, I will draw all men unto Myself.” And I was like “Aha! So we’ve got to lift Your name up and then You’ll draw them.” Yes, it’s simple. It was so simple it felt silly.

Yet you talk to people in certain circles and they go, “Oh, you can’t do worship. It’s foreign to nonbelievers.” I understand the concept of that, but I think that when we dilute the idea that God’s power can work through our obedience, then that’s silly.

My job in [the worship] process is to lift Him up, and then God does the rest. I always want to challenge people to worship authentically in truth and passionately. Seek after God.

Q/ You have a new CD, and it’s coming out in September, “Today Is the Day” …

A/ Yeah. The 23rd is the actual date.

Q/ So what themes did you explore in those songs as you listened to what God was laying on your heart?

A/ Clearly, our pastor, Ray, his influence will be all over this CD in terms of the content. Today is the Day is very like, “Hey man, let’s go for it! I’m leaving my past behind. I’m moving forward.”

“Let’s go for it! I’m leaving my past behind. I’m moving forward.”

There’s another song called “Best Days,” that the rest of your life can be the best of your life, that’s what that song is about. It’s Philippians 1:6.

“…He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).

It’s funny; I’ve actually needed to write a verse for that song. It’s almost finished. It’s already totally recorded except for two verses, and I think I got them today, which is really cool.

It’s that declaration. “By God’s grace, I won’t be captivated by culture, controlled by critics, discouraged by problems or distracted. When times get tough I won’t back up, back off, back down or back out. To my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I say, ‘however, whenever, wherever and whatever You ask me to do, the answer is YES'” …

That to me is the content for the verses of that song. The kind of pre-chorus, it says, “With everything that You’ve started in me, I believe that You will be faithful. And I receive everything that You’re doing in me, and I believe that the rest of my life will be the best days of my life.”

It’s a real kind of positive, optimistic outlook. Some people have gone, “Well how can you really say that? What about people who are ill?”

“It’s a real kind of positive, optimistic outlook.”

If you look at the Christian life kind of holistically… so you die. Great! That’s when it really is going to get good. I think it’s ok to believe God for great things in this life.

I knew a lady, a good friend of mine who was on our worship team, who had brain cancer. She told me that she had some of the best time with the Lord after she got sick, which is pretty awesome if you think about it. She knew that she was going to get to see Him soon.

So that’s definitely one of the themes, letting God’s glory shine through your life. There’s another song on there called “Let Your Glory Shine.”

There’s one that’s called “Give Him Praise” that’s kind of a R&B Gospel flavor that a guy named Israel Houghton sang on with me. It’s just an absolute riot. It’s probably one of those speeding ticket songs if you listen to it in the car!

I wanted to make a very encouraging and uplifting project that was very worshipful at the same time.

Q/ It’s good with all the things that are going on in the world; people may feel in a spiritual slump and need a positive message.

A/ Yeah, it’s funny. Our bass player Norm, he drove down last night and he had a crazy day yesterday: his flight delayed, just a really miserable day.

He said he was driving down in the wee hours of the morning from Raleigh, and he told me this morning, he was like, “Hey, man. I was just listening to ‘Today is the Day’ on the way down. I just really got to say it like really got me pumped up!”

And I was like, “It works!” To me, when it really hits home with people who have been playing it … that’s a good thing.

Q/ You spoke earlier about how you were at the Ottawa Billy Graham Crusade [in 1998]. What did that mean to you?

A/ There’s actually a lot to it … I was involved at the time with a church that left me pretty confused theologically. I had been taught all kinds of things about the presence of God and somebody carrying the Holy Spirit.

When Dr. Graham walked on the platform, and it wasn’t a weird thing at all, I had just never sensed the presence of God on someone’s life like that ever. It blew me away.

Obviously God very uniquely blessed him and gifted him, and even being here [at BGEA], you know, … I just start to cry. I think he represents to me all the things you want to be for God. His humility is just challenging and inspiring: his faithfulness, his consistency.

The thing that stunned me at that Crusade was he got up and spoke, and it reminded me of how Paul says basically, “I didn’t come here to ‘wow’ you with big words. I just came to preach Christ.” And that’s all he did, and gosh he probably spoke maybe 10 or 15 minutes. It was short. It was just unbelievable.

It felt like, “Ok, so God uses men on the earth.” Watching Billy Graham, if he was any less there, if he was any less of himself, he wouldn’t even be there. It’s absolute minimum Billy and maximum God. You don’t see that very often.

It’s just challenging. … We played in Indianapolis, and when I saw him on the screen I remember vividly looking up where I was standing and going, “Oh, Lord, let me be serving you like that. Let me get to that age, and when I am, let me be serving you like he is.”

Ottawa was specifically very special. My wife was there, and we had a similar experience–the powerful presence of God. We had come out of a charismatic background, and I left [the Crusade] and went, “Ok, I have never felt the presence of God like that.” And that was an eye opener for me.

God will move wherever and whenever he pleases and through whomever he pleases. And boy did He ever!

Lincoln Brewster

Lincoln Brewster

Lincoln Brewster began playing music at a young age and attained a level of success before he was 22 that many musicians never reach.   But he realized very early in his career that he wanted more than success in this world. Lincoln wanted to play his guitar and sing songs that would help bring souls closer to Christ...he wanted his music to make a difference. Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Lincoln first showed his musical gifting before he turned two, keeping remarkably good time with a pair of broken drumsticks during his mother Cheryl’s band practice.  Later, when his family moved to the coastal town of Homer, Alaska, Lincoln picked up the mandolin at age five, often playing for cruise ship tourists.         Sadly during this time, Lincoln’s home environment was darkened by his stepfather’s violent behavior and alcohol addiction.  So music often helped bring solace to both Lincoln and his mother. It was a tough life for a young child, but his musical talents continued to grow in spite of their tumultuous homelife.   By the time Lincoln had entered his mid teens, the family had relocated to Modesto, California. All the while, Lincoln continued to perfect his craft, eventually recording an instrumental demo that opened the door for a meeting in Los Angeles with an executive for Guitar Center and later a connection to a Sony A&R rep named Randy Jackson (formerly of “American Idol” fame). During this time, Lincoln began attending church with his high school sweetheart and future wife, Laura.  Soon after, while in LA and alone at a friend’s apartment, Lincoln accepted Jesus Christ into his heart. Lincoln left LA and returned home to his “normal” life.  But, one afternoon while practicing his guitar, he received a call from Steve Perry, the former lead vocalist for Journey.  Unable to believe his mother when she announced the caller, Lincoln later found out that Randy Jackson had passed his demo tape on to Perry who liked what he heard.    Lincoln’s path was about to change. At the ripe old age of 19, he gave up his day job at a local store, moved to L.A. and was catapulted into the world of a rock star.  One day, he was a clerk behind a counter, the next he was in rehearsals with a legend.   Within months, he was co-writing and recording Perry’s solo project For The Love Of Strange Medicine and leaving to go on a nationwide tour with one of the biggest names in rock/pop history.    Lincoln decided that another big change was in order as well.  He and Laura were married in April of 1994, just a few months before he left to go on the road. Although it was the opportunity of a lifetime for a young man, the tour life left him unfulfilled and empty.   Referring to the fans who crowded the stage nightly, Lincoln says, “We were receiving all of the worship… that’s just not what my life is about.”   So, when the tour ended, Lincoln decided to make another life change, turning down all other offers from mainstream bands.  Instead, he and Laura moved back to Modesto where he took a job at his local church as “the technical guy,” running the house sound system when only a few months before he had played guitar in front of thousands of people.  It was one of the hardest decisions that he’d made, impacting not only his career in mainstream music, but his paycheck as well.  Money was tight, but Lincoln and Laura kept their faith that God would provide. And, He did.  This job would prove to be a key training ground for Lincoln as he eventually started leading worship for the church’s youth group. “I just knew that God had created me to do this. Every fiber of my being was saying YES! This is it!” It wasn’t long before God revealed what His next plan was for Lincoln.  He and Laura moved to Nashville to help start a church.  It was a leap of faith, and during the first two months, they slept on the church floor while they looked for a place to live.  They spent three years in Nashville, preparing for whatever God had in store next.  During that time, Lincoln also toured with GRAMMY Award-winning Christian music artist Michael W. Smith and connected with representatives from Integrity Music. Lincoln signed with Integrity and in ’99 released a self-titled debut album. In that same year, Lincoln was offered a job that took the couple back to California and closer to their families.  Bayside Church near Sacramento hired Lincoln to lead their music ministry and it was a perfect fit.  Shortly after, Lincoln and Laura started a family of their own – welcoming sons Levi in 2001 and Liam in 2004. The young family flourished in the Bayside community, and he was blessed to be able to fulfill his duties as Worship Arts Pastor while also touring and recording with Integrity.  Over the years, he has recorded numerous critically acclaimed albums including Live to Worship, Amazed, All to You – Live, Let The Praises Ring: The Best of Lincoln Brewster, Today is the Day, Real Life and most recently a Christmas album, Joy to the World. Along the way, Lincoln has enjoyed Christian radio successes with the No. 1 singles “Everlasting God” and “The Power Of Your Name” and top 10 singles such as “Today Is The Day” and “Salvation Is Here.” Years after leaving behind his rock star dreams, this husband and father once again finds himself sharing music with capacity crowds at concerts and festivals, this time leading them in worship with songs like “There Is Power,” “Made New,” “Today Is The Day,” “Let The Praises Ring,” “Love The Lord,” “God You Reign” and “No One Like Our God.” His songs have been featured on 10 albums including his latest, God Of The Impossible, a reminder that God is bigger than anything we face and nothing can separate us from His love. It is a theme that echoes throughout Lincoln’s life: from a childhood overshadowed by abuse, to a life filled with forgiveness and a ministry that has inspired believers around the globe. While still serving as the Worship Arts Pastor, the Bayside Church staff support Lincoln as he tours and makes guest appearances at churches, festivals and events around the country. His love for what he does is obvious. When he steps in front of a room of full of people, he involves the audience in his music, teaching the songs to them, inviting them to sing along. He shares his heart like an open book and teaches as he plays, talking about his personal journey with God and the faithfulness he’s found.    Lincoln knows he is blessed.  “I’m truly grateful to be able to do what I do. I know I don’t deserve it, but I am committed to doing my best with what God has put before me.”

What is “real life?" Is it the pain, struggles, and moments where hope is in short supply? Is it faith in a God we can’t see and hope for a future we don’t yet know?

For acclaimed worship leader Lincoln Brewster, “real life” has meant all of that and more. Born and raised in a small town in Alaska, Brewster’s childhood in a broken home was perhaps a little too “real.” It was an environment darkened by his stepfather’s violent behavior and alcohol addiction. An environment from which Brewster and his mother sought solace in music.

“My mom loved music and played with local bands,” he says. “She was the one who inspired my love for singing and playing instruments.”

As Brewster bonded with his mom through music, he began mastering a variety of instruments —including a stunning prowess on the guitar. It was this incredible talent that caught the attention of mainstream labels, landed Brewster a “gig” playing with rocker Steve Perry (formerly of the band Journey) and earned him a mainstream record contract by age 19.

But God had other plans. After attending church with his high school sweetheart and now wife, Laura, Brewster yielded his life to Christ. Filled with a new passion and purpose, Brewster walked away from the promise of rock stardom to take a job at his local church. This new trajectory eventually led him to a recording partnership with praise and worship label Integrity Music.

Since that time, Brewster has performed and crafted songs that have helped shape the sound of today’s modern worship while also climbing Christian radio charts. These include global anthems such as “Today Is The Day,” “God You Reign,” “Everlasting God,” “Salvation Is Here” and “The Power of Your Name.”
