Zakk Wylde Starts New Music Gear Company, Wylde Audio

Zakk Wylde Starts New Music Gear Company, Wylde Audio
New products within any sub category are a good thing. Competition breeds creativity and pushes boundaries that hopefully excel everything as a whole. It's no different in nature and is the catalyst for evolution as we know it on planet earth. If only the soccer moms would realize that not every kid should get a trophy, except if they are the best team and did it honorably. Congrats to Zakk Wylde for pushing forward to the next level and starting his own company. Now I am curious as to whom is actually producing the gear.

Husky Burnette Spring Tour Dates On The Discount Food Revival Tour

Husky Burnette has just announced his batch of upcoming tour dates on whats being dubbed the "Discount Food Revival Tour". Does this mean that you have to bring a canned food to each venue or that he is touring soup kitchens? Not the case, but the truth is that you need to stash your coins and get out to these shows. The home cooked remedy of the dirty blues stewed up by ol' Husky is about to boil over. Get some!

Are Music Sales Really Dead? CD Sales Are Still Huge and Digital Streaming Points To The Future

Vinyl records might be the next wave in the minds of diehard music fans, but as a label, I can tell you that we still sell more cd's overall. Even for one of our biggest selling albums, we still have not sold out of the original run of vinyl that was pressed, purchase here. Vinyl is ultimately the better medium relating to album art, sound, presentation and overall vibe, but is only for the true audiophile collectors. Hopefully these buying audiences will grow in volume as more of the bands within our music group, gain a larger foot hold and appreciate the superior packaging.

Aaron Rodgers Is One Of The Best Sound Engineers Anywhere To Be Found

Aaron Rodgers Is One Of The Best Sound Engineers Anywhere To Be Found
A few years back we were able to put out an amazing album, that is still being discovered by many far and wide. This album is filled with adventure, motorcycles, good times and all penned by one of the most standup folks I know, none other than Billy Don Burns. Another part of the tale that most folks rarely hear about is one of the players and engineers, that is a quiet man behind the scenes. This impresario is none other than Aaron Rodgers. His guitar work is above and beyond, along with his mastery behind the knobs of the recording console. If you really want to get to work and have a great recording that will stand the test of time and reach the upper echelons of recognition, here is all the proof that you need. Congrats to both of yall for being hombres and true professionals.

What Is More Valuable, Two Starbucks Drinks Or A New Album?

What Is More Valuable, Two Starbucks Drinks Or A New Album?,  Ask Noel Gallagher
"People are more than willing to sit in a coffee shop and spend a tenner on two coffees and talk about the weather to their friends, and that coffee will last 45 minutes. Yet they will physically get angry at you for asking you to buy an album for a tenner which will last a lifetime and might even tell you something about yourself and might even change your life."  -- Noel Gallagher

Custom Leather Camera Straps From Rusty Knuckles

Custom Leather Camera Straps From Rusty Knuckles
Every time a piece of leather is cut, new ideas come together. The resilience of the material, lends itself to a myriad of uses and ways it can be stamped, cut, stitched or lashed together. For a good while we have been plotting on some Camera Straps, as a few customers have been asking on them, along with other key items that will slowly emerge this year from us. In the back of our minds, we always try to think through what new products to offer, and ones that will also directly link back to the bands on the label. Great photos and great bands, go hand in hand. Now we can also support the photographers far and wide with the same quality leather found on our guitar straps, just reconfigured to work with most DSLR cameras. Go out and make life happen!
