The video was produced by La Koloc Production and stars our new fictional character: “Arion Superstar“.
Statement from Franck:
“I’ve always loved and been inspired by Greek mythology. You might remember my first album opens with “Achilles”. Some time ago, I discovered the myth of Arion. He was the first famous musician, playing his kithara, going on tour, getting kidnapped by pirates who robbed him and threw him out in the water, … and I thought, wow … this guy was actually the very first rock-star!
Then I had the idea of creating a modern version of this story, so I wrote a 15 minutes song called “SUPERSTAR” telling a similar story to the original but taking place today.
That’s how “Arion Superstar” was born.
Arion was born in Hollywood, he’s seen it all and done it all. He’s no longer enthusiastic about life and success because he’s already lived it all. But anyway, his story is told in that SUPERSTAR track and I started impersonating him on stage during this song.
Then I thought, this Arion is such a big rock star, he must have had a hit!
So I started to write a would-have-been hit single and that’s how “Slave to Rock ‘n’ Roll” was born. It’s more a classic-rock track than a prog epic but when we tried it live, everybody seemed to love it so we thought it would be a good idea to make a music video out of it.
Given the subject, we could use a lot of humor and self-derision, in the pure tradition of the 70’s classic rock hits.
We had a great time shooting a funny video full of glam to go with it, and we now hope the viewers will be entertained” Watch it now
The song is also available on all digital platforms
All the best,
