AMERICAN TEARS RELEASES VIDEO FOR “WOKE” AND KEYBOARDIST MARK MANGOLD GIVES YOU A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT THE CLASSIC KEYBOARD SOUND ON THE ROCKING MICHAEL BOLTON TRACK “FOOLS GAME” Mark is often asked about the track he co-wrote and recorded with Michael Bolton which is, for melodic rock fans, one of the better tracks from the singer. As he is holed up in Stockholm, Sweden during the current pandemic, Mark took the time to walk us through how he got that classic 80’s keyboard sound. Mark looks back, “A nice memory of recording Fool's Game with Michael...ah those chops and power chords. I didn't want to settle for just piano...wanted to push the envelope a bit.”
