SAD DAY FOR METAL…

As all of the metal world knows by now, we lost Sanctuary/ex-Nevermore vocalist Warrel Dane a couple of days ago. This is on par with losing Ronnie James Dio and Dimebag Darrell; this loss is beyond words.

But I do have a couple of funny stories to offer up… Read more

TIME TO CONNECT

If you’ve been following Joe Satriani on Facebook, he’s been posting little videos of himself talking about his upcoming new album. Along with that, he’s been talking about who’s on the album, as well as letting the guys in his line-up speak. It’s a great way to engage the listener and make him/her feel like “I’m part of this.”

I need to do that more, huh? Read more

NOW THAT THE DUST HAS SETTLED A BIT…

I wrote a quick blog (of sorts) a few days ago about hearing the latest demos from last Saturday’s rehearsal. And yes I am really excited, easily the most ebullient I’ve been in a real long time about my music.

SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY WITH ME!

Yes, I am back at A&M Music Center on Sat Nov 25. Will be doing another electric solo performance to help promote Small Business Saturday!

As you can see by the caption underneath this flyer, I am back at A&M Music Center in Lyndhurst, NJ on Saturday November 25th. That’s two days after Thanksgiving, so your trytophan will have worn off by then…

I look forward to doing this, as it’s a great way to give back to my old stomping grounds. Granted, I grew up in North Arlington but Lyndhurst is close, so zip it! Read more

FEELING GREAT AT 48

This part Thursday was my 48th year around the sun. Most people abhor getting older but not me. I embrace it because it’s better than the alternative.

BEAUTIFUL NOISE

Just received the files of the four songs that we rehearsed this past Saturday, and all I can say is (and yes this is a Neil Diamond reference)…

What a beautiful noise! Read more

THREE OF A PERFECT PAIR

For about two weeks or so, I had to bite my tongue. It was not easy, believe me. I have been excited in the past about things that involve my music but this…

What does it mean when you can’t blink?
