Hereos

September 26, 2007 at 10:30 am (Rock)

The new book and the new album are out. Pick up the Heroin Diaries.

We picked up Nikki at his hotel yesterday and drove him up to his book signing in Times Sq. It was a true honor to meet one of my lifelong heroes.

Heroes season 2 Episode 1 – I DVR’d it. Haven’t watched it yet.

I plan to use this blog to ramble about not only music but Radio, TV, movies, books and anything else I feel like.

The 1st time I ever played my guitar in front of an audience was when I was with my High School jazz band. My big moment was playing the guitar solo in the Theme Song Of the Greatest American Hero. “Believe it or not, I’m flying on air…”

Hung out with Nick Oliveri back stage at Mondo Generator’s NYC show last night. Such a great guy with so many good stories. A great set by the band. I wish more people new about Nick’s post-QOTSA stuff. It rocks.

Hat’s off to Bill.

The real hereos are the ones that live their lives to the fullest because they realize that this is it.

Nothing much…

CMJ Music Festival is a joke. This is a company that thrives off of ripping bands off. This is pay-to-play BS. Avoid CMJ at all co$t. CMJ does not break bands, they break wallets. RIP-OFF ALERT!!!!

We did another live show last night. There is something that is exciting about going live but the reality of it is, people do not listen to streaming radio on a computer. People want podcasts to take with them. Our Tony Iommi podcast had over 10,000 downloads in one week. Even episodes with no guests are averaging over 5,000 downloads. The TM podcast is hitting all-time highs in listenership. The live show gets about 80 listeners according to the Live 365 listener counter, I am just not sure it is worth the effort and cost. Let me know your thoughts?

Talking Metal will be branching out into other forms of media. Keep your eyes (and ears) on You Tube and your favorite cable TV stations to see more Talking Metal.

We are shooting stuff now.

More metal will be appearing on TV in 2008.  A few things are in the works for more then one network.

Antimusic.com seems to think the Led Zep could sstill be happening.  I do not think so.

———–

Ozzy is gearing up for a solo tour.  Some friends of mine will be opening for him on part of this tour.    You have heard them a bunch of times on Talking Metal.

———–

I still believe in Chinese Democracy.

Things are winding down for 2007…  why still no word?

If it is coming in November, we will be hearing something within the next few weeks.  If we do not hear anything, it is safe to say it is not coming this year.

———-

We will be meeting up with Nikki Sixx later this month.

the new Atreyu album is really good.
