Cisco Adler: ''Whitestarr Has Left its Mark on the Fabric of Rock 'N' Roll''

Posted on

Less than a week after we first told you that Whitestarr is calling it quits, singer Cisco Adler has sent a lengthy e-mail out to fans. He writes, “After 7 of the craziest, most wonderful years of my life, 3 albums (1 never released), a thousand shows, and a reality t.v.show, I have decided to take a vacation from Whitestarr. We are all still best friends and almost-lovers and we dont want anybody to think that any turmoil inside the band lead to this…I just feel it is time for a break….”

Check out his full (and woefully unedited) message, after the jump …

After 7 of the craziest, most wonderful years of my life, 3 albums (1 never released), a thousand shows, and a reality t.v.show, I have decided to take a vacation from Whitestarr. We are all still best friends and almost-lovers and we dont want anybody to think that any turmoil inside the band lead to this…I just feel it is time for a break. I feel like Whitestarr has left it’s mark on the fabric of rock n’ roll whether people like it or not and I don’t want people to panic…WHITESTARR will be back. I do however feel that over the years everything surrounding this band has sadly overshadowed the music I poured my heart and soul into. The party was good…but the music was better. Not the other way around. And if you don’t think so you weren’t listening. I was never in this to be a rock star…I am a musician and I was born to create and record and play. Thats what I do. Thats what i will still do.

I have been through many, many line ups with this band and I would like to say thanks to all of you who ever played even a tambourine with us…you are all priceless. I would also like to say thanks to all of the die hard fans out there who didnt give a f— about anything but the music and stuck with us through thick and thin. WHITESTARR will be back!!!! But as a songwriter and a producer I have always been all over the board taking influences from anything and everything that sparks my interest. I have been producing and writing music for 10 years now and as many of you know if I’m not working or playing with the starr I’m in the studio with a ton of different artists. Heres what I got going on…

I am about to start work on MICKEY AVALON’s second record and weve already cut a few tracks recently that look like lead off singles. They just shot the video for the second single off the first album, a track I produced and co-wrote with my boy called “Mr. Right.” It’s gonna be sick!!

I am also finishing up work on the “SHWAYZE” record. It is a record I am truly proud of and I think it’s gonna be the soundtrack to a lot of peoples lives. It comes out in the spring of 08!

And SHWAYZE and I will be taking the PEPPER dates that I was going to do with WHITESTARR. Please come out and support this new adventure.

AND go pick up DIRT NASTY and ANDRE LEGACY’s albums because they are hip-hop classics. I got a few cuts on each of em!

And…in between and on the run I will be writing and recording songs for a new album of my own! It will be a little of everything I do musically and should be ready by summer next year and will be on SURETONE RECORDS. Check out my demos at myspace.com/ciscosam

I LOVE YOU ALL MADLY,
THIS IS NOT THE END BUT A NEW BEGINING!!!’
