Check another item off in my Bucket List! Yes, whew...It is true, folks...I am now an officially recorded Rock Freaking Star!!! Bring on the motherluvvin' groupies (only ladies please)!!! Okay, okay...catch your breath...I know that you are all very excited reading this and are probably needing a moment to gather yourselves and some of you may have even fainted from the sheer magnitude of this awesomeness. But it is understandable.

It is also very true, by CROM!!! Yes! The week of June 8th thru the 13th we recorded the official BB WOLF & THE 3 LPS soundtrack back in Milwaukee at my bro-in-law's studio! And I can honestly say it is one of the top three coolest experiences I have ever participated in. The other two I only share with those closest to me...sorry. But anyway, leading up to the actual recording I was very nervous we'd be able to pull this whole thing off. I had three vintage BB WOLF & THE HOWLERS songs we had to put together. These are the never-before-heard "Lost Recordings" of BB's before his untimely death in 1920. Remastering them took many, many hours in the studio and then, on top of that monumental task, we had 12 other musicians (my self included. I played washboard on one track and sang on another! YES!) to coordinate, get set up, record and then mix and engineer their songs. All in 5 days time! I honestly hoped we'd get 2 maybe 3 clean songs out of the deal and we got 7!!! Yes, seven! And I was amazed, delighted, cried with joy, high on adrenaline the whole time. All the songs came together beautifully (I could be crass and say something about myself here but I shall refrain) and Pauly my b-i-l worked some real magic as our engineer.

All kidding aside I have to say that hearing a song that I wrote come to fruition by some of the most talented people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing literally brought me to tears. It was a very moving experience and I shall never forget it.

And it makes me want to do it again!

So the BB Wolf book FINALLY hits the stores next week! We're having a book release party at Comicopolis in downtown Santa Cruz on the 10th from 4pm to 8pm, and the cd will also be making it's official debut there as well! The books and cds and shot glasses and coasters will all be made available immediately thereafter on this here site. I hope that some of you reading this will be able to make the party as we will be having food (dead pig of course), drinks, prizes, music and me and JD signing our books and cds and the nibbly bodyparts of all the new groupies I am sure to now have as I am a FRIGGIN' ROCK STAR!!!



BB Wolf Update!

Hey all!

Thrilled to report that we JUST got the first batch of copies of the new book, BB WOLF AND THE 3 L.P.S sent to us the other day and they look SUH-WEET!!! They are not in stores yet but I am told that they will be very soon...which also means that they will be available on this here site VERY SOON!

I really have to comment on just how pleased I am with the overall quality of this book. Not only a beautiful hard cover but also with a nice inset centered picture of the photo of BB that's "glossed" for effect! The binding is also superb and the quality of the interior paper and printing made me wanna cry...tears of JOY not pain! I read the book 1,000 times as I was working on the illustrations but to finally have it in book form...completely different and completely fulfilling experience. I, personally, couldn't be more proud of myself and JD (especially since it's his debut book!) for the fine book we've produced. And, of course we couldn't have done it without the extra help put in by Troy Geddes (cover designer), my buddy CJ Bettin who put in a helluva lotta work on the lettering, and the folks over at Top Shelf for making sure the book turned out so nice!

And all for a mere $12.95 cover price! And I'm not being glib here...I was honestly SHOCKED that a hard cover book of this quality could be priced so reasonably. Shocked and delighted as this will make it that much more accessible to the fans. $12.95!

I will also be posting BB Wolf original pages very, very soon. I realize you haven't had a chance to see them yet but it's probably my finest work to date. Every page was fully painted with varying tones of india ink. I've been holding back on selling any pages until we were closer to the release of the book. So look for that soon as well.

A'ight, that's about it for now. Stella's last day of school tomorrow and then I start girding my loins for all the big summer cons!
