I think Tora Tora's singer is now a music business professor at a university in Nashville, and Damon Johnson played with Alice Cooper and has a new band, Black Star Riders.

    Yes I’ve actually reached out to both of those camps. No response, but I’ll try again. I saw Brother Cane Open for VH on the Balance tour, and loved Tora Tora!

    He always seemed like the type to talk to fans and make those kinds of appearances. Did you actually manage to reach him, or reach someone who manages him?
    I can’t remember (I’ve messaged a ton of people), but never got a response. My experience has been message 10 Musicians, 5 never answer, 5 say “yes”, and 2 actually come through. Lol

    Thanks. I was just wondering.
    Great that you enjoy doing the podcasts, even though there is a limited audience, as you and Arty mentioned.

    As long as you're having fun? Keep going!

    You can say that again! It's weird how someone like a Billy Sheehan will actually show up and treat you like a professional (haven't met him myself, just saying), and open mic night people with absolutely nothing going on will blow you off or stand you up. You have to wonder if that's why he's Billy Sheehan and those other people are nobodies and never will be.

    I tried to get Diamond Dave himself once. I listened to Jay Mohr's interview and thought he did a horrible job, but he mentioned who booked Dave's interviews, and it was the same girl who edited his YouTube videos. So I wrote her with a pitch about how doing an interview with a knowledgeable unknown like me would be a great PR move and would look extremely "down to earth" and create great buzz among fans. Fifteen minutes of his time was all I asked. I was surprised to get a very friendly reply that she was forwarding me to Dave's assistant.

    I was surprised when hours went by without a rejection showing up in my inbox. It took 24 hours for his assistant to write, "With all due respect, Dave is going to have to decline." I like to think Dave got to read my email and appreciated a bit of his own influence in my corny sales pitch.

    Often times the victory is in the effort itself!

    John Douglas, Alex's drum tech and the guy who has built his custom kits the last 20 yrs. Of course, me and maybe noise next door would be the only posters interested, but hey you asked!

    My interview with Mitch Malloy. He talks a little about being in 5150 the first time. Later on I got him to open up a little more but it was off the record! Really nice guy!

    It's all good. I get initally butt-hurt offended for about 5 minutes and then I'm thinking about dinner.

    Had a great conversation with Greg Renoff (ffoner) about “Van Halen Rising “ and his upcoming book on Ted Templeman.
