MySelfishMe Rears It’s Ugly Head

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

One of the cool things about having your own blog is to be able to promote yourself like someone else is doing it.  In effect creating a perseption like We, Us, I are more signifigant than we are.  Now my problem is, I know what people say when they find out that said person is attempting such shady promotion. So I always find it better to come clean and say hey….  Ain’t nobody else singing our praises yet!!!  FYI i’m pretty sure The Jackson 5 started the exact same way.

Anyway, the band MySelfishMe that is in no way affiliated with the creator of this blog has posted a quick preview pre production snippet of some of their stuff.  A tune named “Fred” and an instrumental “Jihad Overture” So go love it and wait anxiously for more.

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Happy Effing New Year. I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season. If not, I hope you can make it better with some cheap booze or craiglist hooker. Can you still get a hooker on CL? I think you have to look under lawn mowers or something now.

Well I took the remainder of 2012 off from my blogs and youtube channels. And I hope to fire back with a roar. Or at least a whimper or whine or something. So check out this web teaser for Jason Newsted’s new solo disc titled “Metal” which is due out January 8th on Chophouse Records.

Peavey AT-200 Auto Tune Electric Guitar!! Pretty Snazzy!

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

So most people when they think AutoTune get this terrible look on their face and think of everything from Cher to almost all of the current pop music of today. Autotune has become a 4 letter word if you will to musicians. And rightly so, today a 18-year-old girl with so so vocal ability can sound killer with just a little auto tune. Now I have always been from the camp that auto tune and pitch correct are different things. Granted it’s the same technology but if I have a singer in here and he has a killer take but slides a bit flat and it doesn’t sound good, i’m all for correcting the pitch if it betters the song and doesn’t take a way from the delivery of the vocalist. But now it’s cool to see companies are branching out with this same tech.

Peavey introduced this year the AT-200 which is a guitar with Anteres auto tune built-in. What’s cool about this guitar is it allows the most screwed up tunings to be in tune and do the tunings you want. It understands bends, and allows for any kind of custom tunings. This is pretty slick for the weekend warriors playing in the local cover bands that don’t want to screw with multiple guitars or multiple tunings just to get through the night. And at the street price of $499 that could be pretty enticing for someone in that arena. I’m going to see if I can get my grubby mitts on one so we can get a good run of Gearzombiee videos out of it!! Because I honestly want to see if I can make it screw up!! Below is a YouTube link to the guitar and also a link to Peavey as well as Musicians Friend.

Hughes & Kettner Triamp MK II Demo

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Hughes & Kettner Triamp MK II Demo.

Initially I could have cared less what the thing actually sounded like because it is seriously the coolest looking head on the planet!! But I never really gave it a fair shake because I picked up a 6505+ about the same time and was using that live. I found that for heavier playing this head did much better with a drive pedal in the front. In this case a TS-9 as well as an ISP Decimator. Without it, the head breaks up well at higher gain but the sound tends to squish rather than tighten up. For some that may be the sound you’re looking for, I however prefer the high and tight sound. Higher gain but super fast response no lag or squish which adding the Ibanez TS-9 does.

If blues or mid gain sounds are your thing, this would be a killer head. Very warm and appealing sound and a tone of character. This really is a great head for whatever application if you take the time to figure it out.

This time they caught up with Tom Commerford the bass player from Rage who gave them a solid “Maybe” on a new album and also his new passion in body mods.

Phil Anselmo Talks Pantera Reunion With Zakk Wylde

Monday, October 1st, 2012

I’m 38, that’s pretty much old to todays kids trying to rock. And let me talk about todays musicians for a minute. Why the skinny chick emo pants and swoopy hair. How cool are you having a 26″ waist and a 30″ wallet chain and no real chops on your instrument?? I feel like an old man saying that music today is lame but come on, I grew up with Pantera and Ozzy. Music today is dumbed down, wickedly overcompressed, the volume is pushed to stupid dynamic murdering levels (I personally don’t understand that one) blaa blaa blaa.

Anyway, In an article on the Village Voice, Phil Anselmo discusses a Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde on guitar. Before you get too excited he also mentioned that Vinnie Paul still won’t talk to him. But below is a clip from the Village Voice article that can be found HERE

There have been rumors floating around of a Pantera “reunion” with Zakk Wylde. Is that real, and would that include you?

Well, it would better damn well fuckin’ include me, or it wouldn’t be Pantera. I talked to Zakk about two weeks ago, and he’s very open for it. He’s got an open mind about it. But, truth be told, Vince [Abbott] has got a grudge against me that is really unfounded. And, honestly, I’ve always had a wide-open door when it comes to Vince.

If it takes me standin’ there and lettin’ that little guy punch me in the fuckin’ face repeatedly, over and over and over, til his hands were tired of hittin’ my rock-hard fuckin’ head, as long as we could sit down and talk afterwards, I’m all for it, man.

Would there be any issue with someone else playing Dimebag’s guitar parts?

Well, now, I didn’t say that the Pantera thing is a realistic thing. I don’t think that’s the important thing. I think what the important thing is, what Zakk and I discussed, is just Vince actually dropping his guard and realizing there is no treachery afoot.
