One more year....Well i gave this a lot of thought and to be honest we have come way too far to just pack it in and be satisfied with a 20 second Idol video.
In case this makes zero sense make sure to click over on the WTF section and catch up on the past year.
Would Hulk Hogan give up after taking a flying elbow from Macho Man? Would George Lucas stop after making three Star Wars movies? What if Carson Daly gave up after MTV's Total Request Live was canned? We would have no Last Call with Carson Daly, nor would there be three more Star Wars films that no one seems to remember. on top of that the Hulkster would probably not be taking his vitamins and saying his prayers.
Despite the time this website takes, it's all just love and care. I love what this project has done, raised tons of money for those in need, got thousands of Idol fans across the world together and got us excited at the prospect of seeing Billy in concert in Seattle.
So this is it! All or nothing. Time to step up and get the word out to Idol about how much we want to see him in concert!
So here we are with a new year. Welcome 2012. I guess there was a lot of debate as wether I was going to continue this project or not.... So much had been completed and achieved. I mean we got BILLY IDOL's attention. If year one was getting idol's attention, then year two is convincing him Seattle on 10-22-2012 is a great idea!
So here we are, time to get back to videos! I have a new laptop and new editing software! So there will be no lack of videos! Footage of idol's message to the Billy Idol Aid 3 crowd followed by my band NITE WAVE'S version of "Rebel Yell" ....ENJOY!
What a way to end 2011. This picture is really worth a 1,000 words. I cant say how cool and exciting it is to see how far this project has reached all across the world. We ain't giving up to we get IDOL!
Billy Idol Aid 3 marked a dream come true for me. No not getting a video shout out from Billy Idol, but having my own 80's cover band headline the Showbox Market. Every city has that historical, mystical, magical venue. Seattle's happens to be this Showbox venue. Heck even Idol played there a decade ago. To be playing on the same stage as some Legendary Bands just blew my mind. So here is some footage of my band NITE WAVE from Billy Idol Aid 3... Enjoy!
