Biography

Walkers Cross was created by two guitar players and childhood friends Patrick Pileggi and Steve Suarez in 2001. They both believed that what was missing in music today was a true back to the basics rock-n-roll band. Not knowing in what direction their music would go, they began to collaborate in what would be the beginning of a great sound. After writing and arranging the beginning of the Walkers Cross sound, they started looking for other musicians who had the same drive and dream. The first decision they made was a bass player Steve has played with off and on for over ten years, Steve Miller, an amazingly strong and talented musician in his own right. After working with several drummers, they started asking around to fellow musicians and friends if anyone new of a dedicated musician drummer. The person they kept hearing about was Danny Bernard. Danny has been a working drummer for years, playing with some of Northeast Ohio's premier musicians. Wanting concentrate more on vocals (though still playing guitar) Patrick decided to ask his brother Dino Pileggi, who has been a touring musician for over 12 years, to join and play rhythm guitar. Finally all the pieces are together to create a great band. With influences ranging from The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Allman Brothers, Michael Stanley, Kiss, Led Zeppelin and many others, Walkers Cross cranks out an eclectic mix of Southern-Rock, Blues and Rock-n-Roll.

The nine-song Walkers Cross CD was recorded at Nashville’s Sound Kitchen, Which is owned by John and Dino Elefante. (For a time, John was lead vocalist of Kansas.) The third-largest recording studio in the country, the Sound Kitchen has been used by stars of country (Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, Faith Hill), contemporary Christian (DC Talk, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant), and pop-rock (Elton John, Jewel, Jimmy Buffett).

Lyrics

Leave Me Alone

Written By: P. Pileggi

I dont' need nobody to tell me what to do
I can make my own decisions, as I'm sure you can to
Philosophy is what I wanna hear
I'm no dictionary, and my grammer ain't so clear
If you like me, I think that it's ok
If you don't like what you see,
There's the door, get the hell away...cuz

Don't wanna hear you
Make my own decisions
Leave me alone

Seems like everybody always needs to know
What the latest fashion is, new trends out in the show
How I wear my hair is really up to me
What I do behind my door is not for you to see...cuz

Don't wanna hear you
Make my own decisions
Leave me alone

Preachers tellin' me every single day
"Send more money, I'll show you all the way"
Charities knockin' at my door
"Put some money in my jar I'm sure they'll find a cure"

Don't wanna hear you
Make my own decisions
Leave me alone

Don't wanna hear you
Make my own decisions
Leave me alone

City Boy

Written By: P. Pileggi & S. Suarez

The city lights are just a stone throw away
The countries peace and quit is callin' me today
In the middle, somewhere in between.
That's where I live my life,
There both a part of me

Cuz I'm a, city boy at night and country in the day
Cuz I'm a, city boy at night and country in the day

Well I wear my jeans and t-shirts all around
Don't get me wrong I can dress up for the town
Got my three piece suit and my trendy colone
I know how to act when I'm sittin' with The Jones

Cuz I'm a, city boy at night and country in the day
City boy at night and country in the day

Well, in my life I learned how to live like a man
Trust the ones you love, respect your fellow man
Firmly spoken, "Hold close your enemy"
Treat a woman right, treat 'em like a queen

Cuz I'm a, city boy at night and country in the day
City boy at night and country in the day

Alive

Written By: P. Pileggi

Ridin down the highway
Wind blows thru my hair
Leave the world behind me
Live without a care

Now when the moon comes out tonight
I won't remember my name

I'm alive and well today
So alive
I'm alive and well today
So alive

White Line screams beside me
Music to my ears
Down shift cuz it feels good
Rippin thru the gears

Now it's a matter of time
Before it catches to you...ya catches to you

I'm alive and well today
So alive
I'm alive and well today
So alive

I'm alive and well today
So alive
I'm alive and well today
So alive

If you try to find the answers
Try to find the way
Learn to live your life
Take it day by day

Now it's a matter of time
Before it catches to you

I'm alive and well today
So alive
I'm alive and well today
So alive
