So what have Chandler Massey (Ex-Will) and Casey Deidrick (Ex-Casey) been doing since they both departed Days of our Lives?  Well, partly they are making music and a new music video with their band, And Still I Rise!  And today, the band has released a music video of their cover of Miley Cyrus top hit, “Wrecking Ball”!

Now, And Still I Rise version of the Miley tune is quite different than the original … think the sound of rock band Linkin Park with a more heavy metal twist!

The band consists of:  Casey Deidrick (Vocals), Chandler Massey (Keyboards/Vocals), Stephen Haynes (Guitar/Vocals), Michael Gross (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Bonaparte (Bass/Vocals).

In the newly released music video it seems like a night of pseudo-frat boy fun, complete with liquor and a bong, goes awry when a ghost joins the party!  However, take a listen as you watch the video down to the great vocals of Chandler Massey and Michael Gross!

Now, watch “Wrecking Ball” with the guys after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of the bands sound, seeing Chandler and Casey again, the video contents, and if you like And I Still Rise version of the tune better than Ms. Miley’s?

It is sad to see these guys collect money through Kickstarter to produce ridiculously poor music videos like the last 2 I have seen. They are awful in my opinion.

I sincerely hope the other guys follow Chandler Massey’s lead and enroll / or return to college for an education and an earnest future.

What a shame and a waste of time and resources.

Libby, for the cover of Miley Cyrus’ song, they didn’t collect money through Kickstarter. They did that for the song “65 Roses” and it was to raise awareness for the devastating effects that Cystic Fibrosis (CF) has on people that suffer from it. The music is metal and probably not your type of music but it was certainly not a ridiculously poor music video! The acting was to show a person with CF, struggling to stay alive and I think it was ridiculously WELL DONE! Matter of taste I guess. The “Wrecking Ball” song was hilarious and it seems like… Read more »

Wrecking Ball is good fun but what’s with the “ghost” symbolically I guess for something the group conquered? Or someone. Like to know if you do. All big fans here.

I think the “ghost” conquered one of the band’s members. Symbolically and literally..

I am far from a metal fan but AISR is really doing a great job. Yea I listened because of Chandler and Casey. They made a video that is a riot. Absolutely is a frat party. And really after seeing that skank Miley doing Wrecking Ball. These guys totally improved on the song.

True, we all have different tastes. I am familiar with CF. We had a member of my extended family pass away from the disease at age 18. It was tragic. I still think that there are much better ways to bring awareness for CF – especially with $30k. Chandler Massey is a multi talented individual. I know very little of the other members of the group. These are young guys with potential and hope they all pursue worthwhile endeavors.

This version…WAY better than anything Miley Cyrus could have done! I am a rock/metal fan, and this ASIR version makes me like the song; the bands’, not MC’s version. Casey and Chandler are doing a rockin job with their band, and I cant wait to see what else they release. I cannot stop listening to “Sixty Five Roses”, and their video for that song is bitchin’! And Still I Rise is one of my new fave bands, and I think Chandler has a great voice! Casey is rockin it too! Way to go guys! Congrats, and keep on ROCKING!

I would like to hear them sing a more conservative song – one without such background noise because the voices sound nice, but background noise took away from the song. As for the video, it was not my cup of tea, but I don’t begrudge others who enjoyed it. Do a different song/video so I can enjoy the voices.

Not a fan of the drug use in this video, at all. Major turnoff.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Bowens to first air on-screen on the July 6th episode.  Apparently, she has been taping at the DAYS set since April.

Raven has previously appeared on All Rise, Insecure, The New Edition Story and Future Man.

You can follow her on Instagram here.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
