Meeting the late Dave Brockie- Lead Singer Gwar

I saw GWAR when they were starting to get big in Richmond. The show was shocking but amazing. People were smashing into each other in a huge mosh pit and having a great time. I have the pleasure of meeting Dave Brockie backstage because he was dating a friend of a friend. As I walked back to the dressing room I was a little apprehensive about what I would find. It turned out they ware all great guys. I met and talked to Dave and told him how much I enjoyed the show. He was really incredibly nice guy and he was glad to be out of costume too. Rest in peace Dave Brockie.

Cyber Attack at ReverbNation

Hey folks. I've been under cyber attack here at ReverbNation ever since my chart rankings got near the top of some of them. Support here has no answers and I'm getting sick of it. Hmmmmm. People always get caught in the end. Just letting you know it ain't easy to do this everyday but just to piss off whoever is harassing me, I'm here until they get sucked into the abyss or the long arm of the law gets a hold of them.

Spinal Tap Perspective

Sometimes when I need to regain some perspective on the music business I watch the movie "Spinal Tap". It's a must see for all musicians. Some things never change.
