ROKHEDZ was there for SkinLab's Fillmore Debut!

I'd like to thank SkinLab for giving me the honor of sharing a glorious evening with them at the Fillmore in San Francisco!  SkinLab received the call the night before Judas Priest would play the historic venue! As fate would have it I was thinking of Skinlab all day! (8.21.02) It was kind of strange how I was "Compelled" to call Jeff (SkinLab's Manager) Jeff was gracious enough to hook me up with photo passes to capture the "once in a lifetime" moment. This was the first time SkinLab played the Fillmore, and hopefully not the last. It was also the first time SkinLab opened up for Judas Priest. SkinLab rocked hard and showed us why they were chosen to warm things up! Judas Priest assaulted us ol school kids! It was just like the good old days, 

Ripper took us back as K.K., Glen, Ian and Scott drove us there. Thanks guys! You are Metal Gods! A special thank you goes out to the Staff and Management of the Fillmore!

ROKHEDZ creates Imagery for S1FT!

I'd like to thank S1FT for giving me the opportunity to hang with the guys in the band and capture some images for them. It was a gray yet pleasant day in San Francisco. We had a lot of fun wandering around scaring the locals. Like a pack of hungry wolves we scouted out locations to shoot from. We kicked ass and enjoyed gettin the job done. Look for the promo pics in Zero Magazine and on the S1FT web site! Thanks Guys! Hope do it again soon! To see the pic they chose for a bio-pic visit the S1FT web site! (click here)

ROKHEDZ Formatting for TV!

Or are you just wacked out and want to see and hear some Metal Mayhem on your TV? We're starting to build a show that will KNOCK you OUT! It's gonna be filled with Heavy doses of Mind bending tones from some of the bands you've seen here on ROKHEDZ. We'll also discuss the technologies used to make the music. What amp should I buy? What brand of guitar should I buy? What effects can I use behind my vocals? What kind of drum kit should I get? And how many? These are just some of the questions we'll answer on ROKHEDZ! ROKHEDZ will be a 30 min show devoted to Metal and how to forge the sounds of Mayhem! Check your local listing for time and day....we're gonna be coming for YOU!
