Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com So, this is West Arkeen’s project, West being a close friend with the Guns N Roses guys (he co-wrote a few GNR tracks, for example “It’s So Easy.” He also co-wrote Use Your Illusion I‘s “Bad Obsession,” co-written with Izzy).

Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com Been on an L.A. Guns kick the last week or so, listening on repeat to 1989’s Cocked & Loaded along with their self-titled debut (1988) and the follow-up Hollywood Vampires (1991) on CD in my car. L.A. Guns always kinda got second billing after Guns N Roses, though […]

Logged on to Twitter this afternoon to see a post from Dave Ogilvie saying that Bill “Kill” Kennedy had passed away today. Bill was one of the best engineers in the business, and a great producer too. Best known for working with Megadeth, he worked with loads of acts, from Nine Inch Nails [he did […]
Love this routine. Listening to him while starting to work on lyrics for some nasty new songs, Stanhope fits right in with the mindset I need to work tonight.
As I mentioned the other day, I’m excited about Coma Music Magazine’s upcoming covers compilation – industrial versions of hair metal songs [disc 1] and New Wave [disc 2]. I wrote the other days about possible choices to cover and submit for the hair metal portion, now I’ve managed to narrow down to just a […]
