        I had been working on some new songs, when I started playing this, written in France as a student, and one that lived on a cassette tape waiting for its moment. The recent X-Factor run seemed to inspire me to revisit it. I changed a few words and added a new bit in the middle, and began working on this home-made concoction. It tells the story of Danny, a would-be superstar who finds fame and fortune through a Talent Show and gets sucked into the machine… A solo project, it came together quite quickly once I’d got into the recording process: drums, bass, 2 rhythm guitars, lead guitar, some keyboard and vocals. For speed, it’s a simple two-shot video, with some instrument cutaways (partly to hide the occasional blurring from the auto-focus on the head shots as I moved to the beat). For the sake of continuity I’ve left it as it is. It adds to the charm! Apologies to Danny for killing him off – or did I? Chris Lyrics: Danny (Superstar) – written & performed by Chris Buckley Danny wanted to be a superstar With a shiny suit and electric guitar So he went into town one day He said ‘need a guitar, cash I’ll pay’ Man he looked the part He was on his way All Danny wanted was to sing And of course the money it would bring Changed his name to ‘Danny Cool’ Got himself an image and the women swooned So they made him a star how could they be cruel? With the world at his feet, like a king he ruled Danny, they made a superstar Danny, do you remember who you are? I remember you were nothing at all At least we had a ball, look at you now You know you were a superstar all the time You know you were a superstar in my eyes Danny, no no no Danny had to do what he was told Sold him a line, they took his soul Making money for the man To fulfil his master plan What to wear, what to sing Soon the music had a hollow ring… ah ah ah Danny never knew the price of fame He became a pawn in a life-long game No private life, he was not free Locked up in a cage for the world to see It took a bullet from his gun to set him free Never mind we’ll see another when we watch TV Danny, they made a superstar Danny, did it have to go that far? I remember you were nothing at all At least we had a ball, look at you now You know you were a superstar all the time You know you were a superstar in my eyes Danny, no no no Danny, you should have come home © tinkersong 2010

              Description: “Welcome to the Dream” Director Rat Skates candidly explains the cold, hard realities of the Artist’s dream, WHY this project’s completion is so important, and the consequences of ignoring it. Film Logline: Surviving the rock dream, a coalition of Recording Artists struggle with the egos and fears of young musicians to save them from the fatal mistakes of stardom. Film Synopsis: “We want to be the biggest band in the world” is the battle cry from the young musicians in this film. When asked how they will do it, the overwhelming response: “We just copy what the bigger bands are doing”. Bigger bands…mostly broke and suicidal. Signing with a major label the goal, understanding the contract optional. Paying to play, at any price. Kids wait in line to follow; the media’s amplification of glory and dismissal of reality creates a dangerous dream, and the nightmare of undefined stardom continues to crash and burn into the cemetery where Hendrix, Joplin, Cobain, Bonham and other gifted young artists now rest. The internet has changed the recording industry, but was has NOT changed? Was it the powerless addiction for the artist to share his creativity that fed the industry monster to begin with? Will their roster of fears remain the vulnerability that kills them? Afflicted with a stardom-obsessed diet and fed by the media controlled menu, the young artist races faster than ever to be seen though the window of disposable talent with reckless abandon. If fame and fortune is “the dream”, then why are Artists suicidal when they live it? Will the happiness machines of drugs and alcohol maintain eternal partnerships with the celebrity-addicted ego? Is art itself now a permanent tenant to the landlord of capital? This film highlights a celebrity roster of “dream survivors”, who shine the spotlight of reality away from the stage. Can they save their young followers from the dangers that await, or will the light at the end of the tunnel be just another train wreck? Film Website: http://welcome-to-the-dream.com/contribute.html
