Watch Winger’s New ‘Queen Babylon’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
You can get your first look at the latest video from Winger's 'Better Days Comin'' album right here at Ultimate Classic Rock, where we're proud to offer the exclusive premiere of the clip for 'Queen Babylon.'
'Queen Babylon' follows videos for the album cuts 'Rat Race,' 'Midnight Driver of the Love Machine and 'Tin Soldier,' and extends the comeback run the group has enjoyed with 'Better Days Comin',' which debuted in the Top 10 of the iTunes rock chart after its April 23 release.
"Soundwise, 'Queen Babylon' is classic first-album Winger meets Winger of today," explains Winger frontman Kip Winger. "This video features the exclusive, unreleased extended audio version of the song with a dual solo from Reb [Beach] and John [Roth] at the end that isn't featured on the album version. It is also the first video to include our original keyboardist Paul Taylor since [1990's] 'In the Heart of the Young.'"
"I have three different things I do: solo records, classical music and the band. And the sound of Winger is when Reb plays guitar and I play bass, and we write from that perspective," Winger explained in an interview with Songfacts. "It's really helped my rock writing to have studied composition for so long, because I can now take a riff that normally any given band might repeat four times, and then move to the next thing ... Bach never did anything more than three times, so there's a whole plethora of s--- that I do on both levels. One feeds the other."
