Arti Tisi (his real name is Arthur Tisi) is a writer, singer and player. He has sung with many rock stars and has been asked to join some major bands. He writes everything from FUNK to Metal, AOR Rock, Jazz and Acoustic music. I know he plays drums, guitar, piano, and bass.Read More...
I know he has written music for movies and television.
I think he lives in New York. And I hear that he also is a computer expert and that he owns a recording studio. I know he was asked to be the singer in the band Foreigner and that he played with those people. He also had something to do with Deep Purple when they were recording Perfect Strangers.
I think he quit the music business after his guitar player left to join Alice Cooper. From them on he just wrote for himself and movies.
Arthur Tisi (Arti) (that is ME). First of all, has no idea how all these songs were factually butchered or even added. Second, he (does write music but not much these days. He was not "asked" to be the singer in Foreigner but he did take a few meetings on it. He would never have wanted to replace Lou Gramm who is one of his idols. He has played with a bunch of fantastic musicians but it looks like people who added these songs got titles, and who he played with wrong. Also some of these songs are songs HE LOVES but did not perform. These songs were written and performed by a phenomenal band that was unsigned called DC10. They were breathtaking. So as that goes, again, people, get your act together.
He does play drums, guitar and piano and of course he does sing. He never had anything to do with Deep Purple except that he was managed by their management (Bruce Payne and Don Bernstein from Thames Talent in Greenwich Connecticut). He has done and recorded many of these songs and it is his voice but he is a little annoyed that these songs are also being sold on CDs in Europe and all over the world (Ever wonder why musicians quit "the business". The best guitar players he ever played/recorded with were Jake E Lee, Al Pitrelli, Tony Bruno and Marc Hitt. His favorite musician of all time is Al Greenwood as he is a great man as well as a great musician. Al co-founded Foreigner and Arti and Al worked together for a long, long time. Arthur’s favorite singers are Robert Plant, Steve Mariott, Paul Rodgers, Lou Gramm, Joe Lynn Turner, Ian Gillan and Ray Gillan (formerly of this earth and Badlands). Arthur got to work with a lot of great, "world-class" musicians and that was a gift, but he didn't play with Zeppelin ever and only met John Paul Jones at a function but never played with him.
So that's it. I/he, whatever, thought it made sense to set the record straight. Whoever posted these songs I appreciate it but better to get it right but whoever took some of them and sold them to others should stop it (doubt they will). Enjoy listening to music but don't believe everything you read.
