May 12, 2011 - PRLog -- Hollywood, CA – Days before Charlie Sheen embarked upon his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour, he asked rock star guitarist Rob Patterson (on break from his band Filter, formerly of KORN) to accompany him on the road and write some original music for the shows.   The centerpiece song was a tune called of course “Winning”.   Admittedly, the song according to Patterson and Sheen is “meant to be fun and entertaining…and we honestly don’t want it to be taken seriously”.

The song (and subsequent versions) is now available digitally, with portions of the proceeds being donated to Sheen’s Torpedos against Tornados (www.torpedosagainsttornados.com)  for victims of the storms that raged through Alabama, in April of 2011.

The various mixes of the song have a rock and rap vibe.  Patterson goes on to say that Snoop was THE perfect person to write the lyrics.  Sheen agreed, saying in a recent interview that he “had a short list of people who would be able to carry the ‘winning’ wildfire the best” and he concluded that “Snoop was on the top of that list”.  

The night before Sheen and Patterson had left for the Violent Torpedo tour, they had set up a make-shift recording studio in Sheen’s house.  Snoop came over and within minutes had tapped out the lyrics to the song on his BlackBerry.  “Snoop is a warlock” Sheen said.  Patterson commented that “we were shocked at how quickly and professionally he was able to just bang it out”.  

In a recent appearance on the George Lopez Show, Snoop Dogg commented on Charlie Sheen by saying that “He’s a brilliant guy.  I’m having so much fun just bein’ around him”.  Snoop goes on to say “You’ve gotta understand one thing about me…I’m different.  I love havin’ relationships with different people, who aren’t the normal, aren’t the usual.  And one thing about Charlie…he’s not normal, he’s not the usual.  We’re makin’ some classic material”.  

There's an R-rated version of the song, as Patterson calls it, a more rap style filled with lots of four-letter words.  Meanwhile, the family version, as Rob Christie, president of Robo Records (Distributed by Universal/Fontana), describes it, is in more of a rock style, which they hope will make a popular selection at sporting stadiums across the country.  “To me” Christie commented, “it’s like a modern day ‘Rocky’ theme that would pump anybody up!”

"The song started off being about Charlie Sheen," Patterson said. "But when Snoop came in, we didn't want it to be just about Charlie and repeating his key phrases. It's unilaterally about winning."

The song “Winning” has various mixes: Main (Rap) Mix (featuring a cameo from pop culture icon Carmen Electra, the ultimate trophy to any winner), Rock Mix, Rock Arena Mix, along with both explicit and clean versions of each.  All versions were launched May 10, 2011 and are currently available wherever digital music is sold world-wide.  Plans for physical CDs and 12 inch DJ vinyl pressings will be available in the coming weeks, with some possible remixes.

"People will love the song," Sheen said. "Who doesn't like to be winning?"
