Shooting the Video for “Fine Without You!”

October 18, 2012 | by The Valentines
Posted in Uncategorized
Do you remember the TV sitcom ‘Alice’? I can’t tell you much about the plot lines, but the overbearing boss character of Mel Sharples and Flo’s ‘kiss my grits!’ line are burned into my memory. That and Donna Summer’s video for ‘She Works Hard for the Money’ were the inspirations for the video for “Fine […]

Amy Gore Jams at the School of Rock, Farmington, MI!

Posted in Uncategorized
Kids these days are getting schooled … in rock n roll! I love this idea: parents pay for their children to ‘learn’ how to play in a rock band. Un-real. I think it’s great! The director of the School of Rock in Farmington MI, Miss Laura Mendoza, told me that two of her classes were […]

While in the studio recording, a last-minute opportunity came up to play live on the Fox2 Morning News show. Our friend Kathy Vargo told us about a group was booked to appear the next day, but the singer got sick and couldn’t do it. I volunteered. She made some calls, and we were in! One […]

I’m so happy to announce I’m in the 2012 Gretsch Guitar Catalog! The guitar I’m playing in the photo is my 2005 NAMM Tradeshow Model White Falcon 6136. Believe it or not, The White Falcon was not intended to be a production model guitar! Check it out, more about the White Falcon’s history: “The biggest […]

Posted in music
The band had played its first few shows and I was writing a lot. Months went by, and I had more songs. So we went in to Rustbelt Studios again to record in fall of 2011. This time, the amp set up was different. Jackson played through a Bletchley and I through a Vox AC30. […]

Straight from the Lion’s mouth, Amy talks about the nighttime shoots with Director Brittin Richter and finishing The Valentines’ first video shoot together. See the video here! Director Brittin Richter made the hitchhiking shots on day 3 the most fun. Well, riding in the back of the car singing with the camera on the dashboard was […]

AG&HV and Shonen Knife!

For those of you that were there, (and shame on those that weren’t!), Monday night we played with Shonen Knife and White Mystery at the Lager House! It might have been the most rockin’ fun Monday night of all time. Shonen Knife is consistently the cutest and coolest band from Japan. For being so cute, […]

Straight From the Lion’s Mouth…

Amy dishes on recording The Valentines’ first video, “Drivin Around,” in Detroit with Director Brittin Richter. I met Brittin Richter on the set of esQuire’s video for his single ‘Enjoy Yourself.’ I’ve been a big fan and friend of esQuire for years. I love his style and songs. He’s truly unique and very talented. I […]
