THE BERMONDSEY JOYRIDERS
Gary Lammin Steve Godoy and Marty Stacey
Two of my blog clients are the Godoy twins Steve and Art. These guys are absolutely bionic and talented in so many ways. They are musicians Steve drums and Art guitar (boy are they ever), Pro skateboarders and tattoo artists. Steve lives in Santa Monica and Art (Funhouse Tattooing) is in Vancouver Canada. I usually chat with Art. But it turned out that his brother Steve was playing with The Bermondsey Joyriders at the Corktown Tavern in Detroit.

Deniz Tek and Steve's twin brother Art really wanted me to go down and meet Steve so Kimmer and the Hatter took off to Detroit again! All three of these guys are my blogger clients. Believe it or not I am still up! Must have been that music and coney dog!

We had to sit through a band before my guys went on and their drummer was pretty good and I said so to Steve. He laughed and told me he was going to make him look like a 6 year old and I'll be damned if he didn't do JUST THAT. Man did Steve beat the tar out of that kit!
After the show we took the boys in the band to the Holiday Inn and after they checked in we took them on a landmark tour of Detroit. We ate at Lafayette Coney Island, saw the big new buildings, saw the old train station but best of all...
I had such a great time! Haven't had that much fun since the 80's! Can't wait to meet Art and see the brothers play music together! Hanging with Steve made me want to go get a tattoo of the Radio Birdman symbol! But a tiny one...
Here is a little silly video to end the fun night with the band and Madhatter!
Thanks guys for the show and the CD and tee shirt! Oh I almost forgot! Look what I got for my collection... YAY!
Thanks Steve you were so charming!
