Stanley T. Madhatter!
Finally the Dead City Prophets show at Paychecks on April 10 arrives. We had a tough week with every kind of obstacle you can imagine. Broken hearts and lost friendships are painful but as Ethel Merman said (among others) "The Show Must go on"! Go on it did. As the Zen cats used to say "the marksman fundamentally aims at himself so we'll leave it at that.
Motor City Rahs Rahs, Stanley Ron having fun!
We came out to finally see the Dead City Prophets play with Mark singing lead. Also to celebrate Ron Cooke's birthday! He was having a great time despite his foot injury.
I had filmed them as a trio with Rob King on drums last fall (here is that video) but not in their new line up with Steve Williams on drums. He is really great! Couldn't get a decent shot of Steve behind all the band and equipment. Sorry Steve!
JB Sweet and Ron Cooke (Steve behind JB)JB is really hot young lead guitarist and he has been tutored by some of the best guitarists in Michigan like Mike Katon who I have know since High School. JB and Ron really play tight together.
The Ruiners were fabulous too! Nina was also the birthday girl and she made the entire night so much fun for all of us! She sings really well too!!!
SPECIAL THANKS TO RON COOKE, MARK CHILDRESS RICK RUINER TRUDIE AND STANLEY T.
