Terry: "Gene was the kind of person you wanted to get to know. You loved him instantly. He had that power, charm, charisma ... I tend to think that was the most spiritual part of him, that part that people responded to most instinctively. Gene was also a guy that struggled with his faith, who had dark things in his life -- like we all do -- but who lived his life authentically. He truly was an artist, and he truly managed to make divine, holy things out of the darkness of his life."
Derald Daugherty (The Choir, Lost Dogs): "He's definitely one of the most musically gifted guys I ever met. He never got cynical -- seemed to find the good in everything he worked on. His lyrical approach and melodic applications influenced me greatly. There's been a huge void left to fill in this music."
Mike Roe (77s, Lost Dogs): "My life has turned an irrevocable page today. I will never be the same after this. God finally got my attention. Life is precious and short. If Christ is not at the center animating all of it, I might as well be dead, too. Please pray that this very big wake-up call will inspire, rather than crush, all of us that remain together in this veil of tears. Perhaps I will learn to love more and better because of this."

Album Info & Lyrics
Terry: "I think 'Papa Danced On Olvera Street' means the most to me... the relationship between fathers and sons often contains daunting complexities. I haven't written a song specifically about my father, partly because I wanted to avoid sappy sentimentality and I wanted to write what is most true about this man that I deeply love, but who is in many ways a mystery to me. Last year my father, to the surprise and delight of the family, really did do a little jig on Olvera Street, and so my song was born."
Terry (on working with Phil Madeira): "I allowed him pretty free reign, since he's explored this kind of musical terrain much more than I have... The guy's a 'roots' artist if there ever was one. He's also a very opinionated guy, and that's great, because his observations are pretty accurate. At the same time he was gracious and extremely supportive, and I think that came from mutual respect. I literally couldn't have done the record without him."

When Worlds Collide:
A Tribute to Daniel Amos
View Album Reviews
Phil Madeira: "Terry and I have been acquainted since the late '70s, but our friendship really started sometime in the early '90s when Gene asked me to play B3 on a Nashville Lost Dogs date. We immediately hit it off, talking about spiritual matters, our kids, etc. We shared a common goal- beyond and higher than art- that our children follow the Lord.
A few years later, we hooked up to cowrite some hits for a company with whom Terry was signed as a writer. In the words of Huckleberry Finn, "Nuthin' come of it", which is just as well because we just yakked. His publisher at the time didn't deserve a hit song, anyway.
One of the great continuing joys of my life is the occassional Cornerstone gig with Terry, as well as recording together. I chose ˇAlarma! as my tribute tune because I've always loved the Doors-y (as opposed to Dorsey) vibe. Jerry's playing on the original kills. I was tempted to do "Ten Gallon Hat", but I think I'll wait another 20 years."
Rick Altizer:"Terry Taylor is a good songwriter and all that, but I can't get him to stop calling me. All that guy wants to do is talk on the phone. Man, come on...get a life already."
Bruce Brown: "It seems almost idolatrous to refer to *any* association with a musical artist as a "life changing" experience. But that is how I feel about having known these guys for some twenty-plus years now.
At every twist in their professional road, Terry and the boys have always offered me access to their camp and a chance to probe their creative processes. They have been and continue to be receptive and polite to even the most mundane questions and comments about the bands and themselves.
They have also aided me in immeasurably in *my* professional growth, offering me the opportunity to prove myself as a journalist (in the production of the ˇAlarma! and Doppelganger radio specials) and as an engineer (with Live Bootleg '82, rescued from oblivion by the late great Gene Eugene.)
Like all of you, I wait with great anticipation for the next project to come from these underrated geniuses. I know I will not be disappointed."
Sammy Horner (The Electrics): "Heck...I didn't even have a beard until Terry showed us all it was cool!"
Jeff Elbel: "The Logos bookstore in Champaign, IL had a huge listening station along one wall. One day, I started at the top row. I am eternally grateful for having slogged through the C*rman cassettes, et cetera, to the middle of the bottom row. "Outdoor Elvis" sat between a Brian Duncan tape and an Amy Grant tape. So much for alphabetical order. It was the one album I bought all semester, with what was supposed to have been lunch money. Soon after, I joined moderately responsible society and got a job. I blew my newfound wealth on whatever "Eddies-related" material I could find, including solo material by that Amos guy. My band, Farewell to Juliet, covered "The Big Guns," "Let's Spin," and "If You Want To" at live shows. Terry remains a big lyrical influence on my current work."
Steve Taylor: "If it's true we were separated at birth, then Terry got the brains and the good looks."

"Numerous artists have put together a tribute to Christian Rock pioneers Daniel Amos and lead singer Terry Scott Taylor. When Worlds Collide features 18 classics such as "Shotgun Angel" (77s), "Alarma!" (Phil Madeira), "Shedding the Mortal Coil" (Starflyer 59) and "(Out of) The Wild Wood" (The Throes).

Expect over seventy (70) minutes of Daniel Amos and Terry Scott Taylor classics covered by some of the best artists of this and past decades.

Contributing artists include the 77s, Jimmy A, Phil Madeira, Starflyer 59, Randy Stonehill, Larry Norman, Bill Campbell, the Throes and many more. Executive producers and Coordinators, Eric and Jason Townsend, have indicated that all profits from the sale of When Worlds Collide will be used to benefit Compassion International and Compassion USA."

Phil: "Our 6-hour drive (from Illinois) was actually 10. Yeah, we thought the long drives were over, too, but nay, dear reader! Anyway, we hit traffic in Nashville, my home town, and JT (Feavel, of Warm&Filled Management) called and told us the gig was on Eastern Time, - not good. So, we asked the promoter 'Are you sure you want to do this, because we'll be there 2 hours late', and he said 'The show must go on'. When we got to the gig, the venue said we couldn't play because it was too late and too little people... so, we went to the promoter's apartment.
There we were, sitting on a couch with 10 fans and 2 babies, one of whom cried most of the time. But it was fun. We had a hard time not totally cracking up at one point. But we got thru. I decided against doing my set, as it was late, and I felt like the people would like to get right down to TST business. We did his entire set, just about, and I think the folks were really touched."

"The Daniel Amos bookset, which includes all the pieces of the puzzle of the infamous and brilliant Alarma Chronicles, which spanned four albums (all of which are included here - Alarma, Doppelganger, Vox Humana and Fearful Symmetry). The curious novelette is bound in a classy hardcover, along with the lyrics, album art, photos, new liner notes, and tributes from several writers. An added treat is a transcript of the rare Alarma Radio Special. Now, it's never really been about hard music, but the impact of Terry Taylor and his band is akin to "What if the Beatles had remained intact and made music in the 80's. Perhaps this is the answer."
"Some cool albums that slid across my desk recenty include... the Daniel Amos / Terry Taylor tribute album, When Worlds Collide, featuring artists performances by Dead Artist Syndrome, Larry Norman, Starflyer 59, The 77s and others."
The issue also includes a review of the disc by Doug Van Pelt.
