It took me awhile to even figure out exactly what I’d said that pissed off all the Kiss trolls and as far as I can tell they’re mad because I called Ace and Peter alcoholic junkies, like that’s not common knowledge…. The most hilarious part is [the trolls] also, in their posts go on and on and ON about how I look! Apparently I’m a fat, stupid, Side Show Bob looking freak that none of them have ever heard of who has no right to talk shit about Ace and Peter. Ace and Peter, two grown men who made a fortune wearing Kabuki make up as a result of being even uglier than I am. You know why they wore make up? Because they needed it!

There’s a Soundgarden documentary in the works, from the team behind Super Duper Alice Cooper. Says co-director Reginald Harkema:

“We’re going to concentrate on [the ’90s] era mostly. It’ll probably be like 70 to 75 percent mid-’80s to the breakup, and then catch up on the reunion and the present day. We’d like to shoot some big special concert, and maybe use that as a structural spine. We’re going to shoot all the interviews so they’re more on-camera, so you can kind of get the emotion in the faces. There’s a lot of stuff that they went through, and a lot of stuff that they [shrug off], that I think we can dig deep underneath, and get back to how they felt emotionally at the time.”

This Saturday (4/12/2014), Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, Argonaut, and Old Iron will be in Tacoma!

This is the the first Brothers of the Sonic Cloth show since last fall. Word on the street is, their record is done and will be out later this year. And I heard they already have plans to start working on new recordings. BOTSC and Old Iron are also playing again on Sunday in Olympia.
