T-Ride was a California-based heavy metal band whose only album shared the same title. Noted for its wildly complex instrument and vocal arrangements, it featured guitar playing by Geoff Tyson, a student of Joe Satriani. Songs from the album were used in various motion pictures and television shows including "Luxury Cruiser" in the soundtrack of 1992's Encino Man, "Zombies from Hell" in the movie "Captain Ron" and "Bone Down" in an episode of Baywatch, "Forbidden Paradise-part 2". Drummer/producer Eric Valentine went on to became a multi-platinum selling producer, producing acts like Smashmouth, Queens of the Stone Age, Satriani, Third Eye Blind, LostProphets, Good Charlotte, Nickel Creek, John Fogerty and more.

"You and Your Friend" was later covered by Snake River Conspiracy in 2000 for their debut album Sonic Jihad which Eric Valentine co-produced. Read more about Geoff Tyson on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
