3D In Your Face fan. Now coffee doesn't seem to be as Rock N Roll as Jack Daniels, but in all honesty it is. I can now function in society instead of always working on last nights hang over. I have made a list of goals for myself and for the band and work on these goals everyday that I can (I also may be addicted to working on band stuff, pick your battles). I also find that I can move forward in my life in a positive direction. Now I'm not saying that drugs and alcohol are bad, but for me they limited my creativity. As an artist why on earth would you want to limit your creativity. I look back now and realize that I was waiting for something great to happen to me. Well good things aren't going to just fall into your lap. You have to go get what you want. To quote Cool Runnings again "Go ahead. Get your palace."
A few few years back when Playboy first joined the band we played a few shows with his other band DI-FI. Now these guys were seasoned rock veterans but they had never been out with 3D In Your Face before. Challenge excepted. Before Jason was our tech I used to fill the guitar tech case full of beers so that I could drink on the side of the stage without having to buy beer at the bar. The owners of the clubs would always come over to chat and I would have to hide a bunch of empties where ever I could so as not to get in trouble. One fateful weekend DI-FI and 3D In Your Face were playing in Norfolk at The Depot and I took it upon myself to show these new guys how we partied. We did the show, I may have fallen of the stage that night, and we drove back to the hotel to stay the night. DI-FI checked into their rooms and started watching the video tape recording of their set. I just couldn't have this. We were a rock band on tour. So I decided it would be real funny to knock on their doors at 3 AM. I knew they wouldn't open the doors so I just dropped my pants and bent over and started yelling in the hotel hallway. "Why wont you open the door?" "Don't you like us?" I thought we were friends?" "I have a very important document for Mr. Jeremy Deans." They look through the peep hole and were mortified but I thought it was the funniest thing ever. Luckily we didn't get kicked out, that would come later. I look back at this now and think, why would I have done this. I was a maniac but for all the wrong reasons. Don't get me wrong I would still drop my pants and run through a hotel lobby, that's just plain funny. But I wasn't focused on where I was at as a musician. I put on such a lousy show. All I was concerned with was how many beers I could fit in my tech case. I am so thankful to be in 3D In Your Face and be surrounded by people that cheer me on. I want that palace and I there is nothing that will stand in my way. .
The Make-A-Wish Foundation for our show at The 21st Saloon. On Friday Jan. 25th at 9:30 pm we will be taking the stage to help raise money for this amazing organization We have made so many friends over the last year and I am excited to be able to put this to good use. Also we will be joined by some very special guest from out of town this Friday. Hair I Go Again is a documentary being shot about a band named TRYXX that broke up more than 20 years ago. They are putting the band back together and ultimately shooting to get the opening spot for one of their heavy metal heroes. The documentary crew will be making a stop in Omaha to the 21st Saloon to shoot some video and do an interview with us for their film. So spread the word and get your asses down to the 21st Saloon this Friday night. Where your Sunday's best because you never know if you will be in a movie.
