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 the guys had good fun making it and why not! And I think there is more to that song/clip, than you probably care to know.

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.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

Let us know if you agree with our pick, and what you thought of Camila’s performances, and what you think Gabi might do next, via the comment section below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
