FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
Cancer Surgeon and self-described “Doctor of Rock & Roll” Doc Wascher has released his long-awaited instrumental rock single, “Rewind.” The track is a blues-rock guitar-driven instrumental tune that Wascher has chosen as the first worldwide release from his forthcoming debut album. Wascher, a fiercely independent composer and multi-instrumentalist, started his own label, Doc Wascher Records, which allows him complete artistic control over his music. “Rewind” was painstakingly and lovingly recorded in Doc’s own recording studio over a period of more than 6 months.
“Rewind” immediately transports the listener back to the melodic and visceral sounds of the classic-rock style that dominated the airwaves in the '60s and '70s, while also representing the exciting vanguard of “new classic rock” music. “Rewind” rolls and grooves, and will thrill fans of rock 'n' roll music around the world.
Doc Wascher cites as his main artistic influences such legendary rockers as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, the post-Cream Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rush, Duane Eddy, the Animals, Yes, and the Ventures. Intuitively, “Rewind” bears many of the melodic and sonic qualities that immortalized the music of these giants of classic rock and progressive rock, while also recalling the tones and moods of disparate bands like the Velvet Underground and Tommy James and the Shondells.
Wascher, himself, describes “Rewind” with a clarity which arises from his unique artistic vision, and his decades of involvement with popular music. Wascher notes that, “'Rewind' is an instrumental rock song that combines an uplifting '70s pop-rock vibe with expressive and soulful guitar solos reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.” Wascher further shares, “‘Rewind' was intentionally composed and recorded to transport, or 'rewind,' the listener back to the place and time when Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Stones, the Beatles and Cream reigned supreme on the FM airwaves.”
Doc Wascher has more than hit this mark with the uptempo “Rewind,” and years from now, listeners will vividly recall exactly where they were and what they were doing when they first heard “Rewind.”
On the rhythm side, Doc's bass lines rumble and groove while the drums churn out a deep blues-rock rhythm. Wascher’s blistering keyboards also receive well-deserved attention in “Rewind,” but it is his melodic and expressive rock guitar that especially wails and soars, with a soulful tone that brings to mind a cross between Pink Floyd and T-Rex, with a little vintage Cream thrown in for good measure. While “Rewind” amply serves as a worthy heir to many of the timeless blockbuster classic rock hits that will never die, this soulful and uplifting new groove also stakes its own rightful claim as a very contemporary and fresh-sounding rock masterpiece.
In addition to the deep blues-rock cuts churned out from his recording studio, Robert “Doc” Wascher is an internationally renowned cancer surgeon, cancer researcher, and professor of surgery. He is also the author of the popular book, “A Cancer Prevention Guide for the Human Race,” which has been referred to as the “Bible of cancer prevention” for lay readers. Wascher is also the editor of Weekly Health Update (www.doctorwascher.com).
“Rewind,” by Doc Wascher, is available worldwide from all major online digital music stores, and on CDs directly from Doc Wascher Records.
