4 days…

@Anthrax @LiveAtTheArmory

Insanity’s Reign will be opening the Anthrax show in just four days.

Two years ago today…

Club 66 sits adjacent to a cemetery. What better way to spend your Halloween evening than rocking by a cemetery? Check out the 2014 Halloween Bash tomorrow night @ Club 66. If you want to avoid expensive cover charges downtown, enjoy live music, and pay only $10 for a pitcher of beer then this is the place to spend your Halloween evening.

From “fan” to “in the band”

The stories are legendary. A fan goes to a show to support a favorite band.

One thing leads to another, and before you know it, they become a roadie for the band.

Then someone gets sick and they “fill in” on a “temporary” basis.

In the end, they will be playing guitar and/or singing lead on vocals.

Be very careful bands who you invite to shows because they tend to take over.

Some examples:
Eric Bloom took on the title “sound engineer” before switching it to “tour manager” for the band Soft White Underbelly. Before long their singer mysteriously dropped out of the band and Bloom stepped in on guitar and lead vocals, changing the band’s name to Blue Öyster Cult in the process. 40+ years later he still runs the show.

Harald Oimoen took photos of D.R.I. He worked that into a gig selling merchandise for them before taking on the title “bass tech”. The D.R.I. bassist became “tired” and Harald took over on bass duties to finish out a tour. This has lasted for the past 15+ years.

Tim “Ripper” Owens sung for a Judas Priest tribute band called British Steel. Rob Halford left Judas Priest due to “internal tensions within the band” (yeah right, like a band is really going to have any internal tensions), and Ripper stepped into Halford’s role.

Frank Bello was Anthrax’s roadie in the early days, but for the past 30 years he has served as the band’s bassist and acrobat.

Then there is the little guy in today’s photos… I highly suspect he is attempting a similar coup.
