Giggles. Mercury Records pushed â€œBustedâ€ to Metal and Hard Rock radio stations,â€œWhiskeyâ€ to AOR radio, and â€œLong Way From Home is still played on the radio all over the world. The music video of â€œWhiskeyâ€ got airtime on MTV.
Copperhead toured with The Kentucky Headhunters, .38 Special, and Molly Hatchet. They also played with new acts like Brother Cane and LSD. Crowds loved the band wherever they went and soon Copperhead was headlining their own tours.
Now in 2005, Neil Carswell has released a new collection of Copperhead music which showcases his unique vocal style and to coincide with his upcoming solo release in 2006.
Copperheadâ€™s CD â€œLive and Lostâ€ packs the energy and passion of Neil Carswell as both a performer and songwriter. The CD features four live tracks and eight studio tracks engineered and produced by Rodney Mills and Tom Dowd (the two hadn't worked together since Skynyrd's "Street Survivors" LP). Donnie Van Zant even showed up to witness the reunion of Dowd and Mills with his own two eyes. This classic Southern Rock CD can be found at www.copperhead.info and www.neilcarswell.com
â€œCopperhead is the truest example of new-breed southern rock purity in motion,featuring Van Zant-esqu vocalisms blended with a modern-day hard rock onslaught.

â€œCopperheadâ€™s brand of Southern Rock follows the legendary trails of Lynyrd Skynyrd with the soulful wailings of the Black Crowsâ€ - Leslie R. Marini, X-posure Magazine
â€œSouthern Rock with a Metal edgeâ€ - M. Conley, News Herald
â€œEagles-style harmony with a Blackfoot/Metal/Southern Rock soundâ€ - L Weaver, The Daily Record
"Carswell has an enviable history by anyoneâ€™s standards, with collaborators and affiliations ranging from renowned producers such as Tom Dowd to legendary performers as Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers) and Barry Goodrow (Boston). Make no mistake about it, Carswellâ€™s place in rock history is now secure thanks to the tremendous popularity of his recorded output and paying dues on the road." - Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
