Chris Goss and the Masters of Reality are a mystery. Nothing about them really figures. Over the last decade they have amassed a cult following of fans and provided the world with three albums that have all been met with an almost embarrassing outpouring of critical acclaim.
The band's first effort, the self-titled "Masters of Reality" also known to fans as "The Blue Garden"
was the first rock album on the Def American label and was produced by Rick Rubin. A cut from the album was featured in the Steven Seagal action flick "Marked for Death". In 1994, the Masters foloow up album, "Sunrise on the Sufferbus", which featured a virtuoso performance by ex-Cream/Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker, put a single, "She Got Me (When She Got Her Dress On)" into Billboard's top ten playlist.
The 1997 release of "How High The Moon.....Live at the Viper Room" was recorded on the spur of the moment at Johnny Depp's famed Sunset Strip nightclub. This intimate setting gives fans a glimpse of the Masters at their most amazing. It's been described as "the show we all wish we were at". One of the evenings many highpoints was Chris Goss being joined onstage by Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland on "Jindalee, Jindalie".
Chris' production is given much credit for making Kyuss into the desert-rock legends they are today.
Goss has done production for Scott Weiland on both the Magnificent Bastards and Stone Temple Pilots, Ian Astbury, Josh Homme, Russell Crowe (LA Confidential), and many others.
In 1999 they released the album "Welcome to the Western Lodge", the first one for Brownhouse Recordings. The album received great critical acclaim and features 13 brilliant rock songs of which Moriah, The Great Spelunker and Take A Shot At The Clown are classics.
In September 2001, Masters of Reality will release their newest studio album entitled "Deep in the Hole". Chris has made a trip back towards the masterful "The Blue Garden" album as this new one breathes bluesy stoner rock with some fabulous guitar riffs and solos and features guest appearences by Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees/Queens of the Stone Age), Troy van Leeuwen (A Perfect Circle), Dave Catching and Mathias Schneeberger (The Earthlings), Nick Lucero (The Flys) and Brendon McNichol.
