Jackie & The Apriles perform “It’s Only True”
“So one day I get the brilliant idea to start my own band. I had just left Blue Lou Boil & The Chesterfields and I decided that it was time to unleash my musical greatness as a solo artist. I figured, how hard could it be to form a band? As long as I was writing amazing but simple scores that any musician I knew could play, it was only a matter of time before gold records were hanging on my walls. Then I met the Aprile’s. Man they sucked.”

Despite the lack of any recognizable talent within the Aprile’s, Jackie was admittedly stubborn when it came to trying to make the band work. After their break up, Jackie was noted as saying, “Forget about scripted music pieces. I had to use phrases like ‘dreamy, lush soundscapes’, or explain what I meant by saying a song needed an ‘epic Led Zeppelin 3 type middle section.’ All I would get is blank stares.”

After much soul searching, Jackie decided to give the Aprile’s another chance to perform with him on The Tribute because, “Let’s face it, everyone in world loves second chances…and this was their shot at soft rock redemption. It’s not like I made it hard for them either. ‘It’s Only True’ has to be, hands down, the easiest piece of music I have ever written. Period.”
