GROWING UP GREEN!! Wake up! Wake up! More D-LOW scrapbook treasures!

This week, Dana would have been 44 years old...gone longer than he was here. . On our trip through Igor’s scrapbook of DLOW treasures, I came across this ancient poster and photo.

For one of my besties, Debbie Abono, I made a tour with Sacred Reich and added Debbie’s new act, Forbidden. When the show got to Denver, our agent asked if a new band could jump on the bill. I took the chance and added Faith No More. The crowd didn’t treat them kindly though, so Billie Gould ended the set with a bass thump that seemed endless!! We were like whoa! What a master!! It was slick!

We marveled that Faith No More was about to be on the Metallica tour and were traveling in a van! So boss! We all know what happened after that tour...

GROWING UP GREEN!! Wake up! Wake up! More D-LOW scrapbook treasures!

As the pages turn, more posters and photos to share reveal themselves. This photo of Max and Co. was taken in a favela in Brazil. You can’t safely roam about in these shanty neighborhoods. Just a quick dose with security and out.

These posters represent a tour I made in support of the Chaos AD record. It was an explosive tour, detonated by good times and Metal!

GROWING UP GREEN!! Wake up! Wake up!! Let's go back in time to Nailbomb!

Recently, I found a scrapbook I made for my son, Igor, in 2001. I had stuffed it full of photos, laminates and fliers of Dana's collection of memorabilia. When I browsed through it, I was shocked at what a treasure trove Dana had! I am gonna make the next few blogs from this scrapbook. Share the photos and old school posters with our Tribe!

These rare promo photos of Max and Alex Newport were taken by Kevin Estrada in 1994. He really captured the essence of Max and Alex and their Nailbomb persona! Kevon took the guys to a club called The Sun Club. It was located in Tempe, Arizona and had been lit on fire by a sneaky arsonist! It certainly made a cool location! These photos are extremely rare and the whole set was in Dana's collection.

Enjoy and share!!

GROWING UP GREEN!!! Wake up! Wake up!! I Wanna Be Sedated!!

In 1994, I was fortunate to land a Ramones' Brazilian Tour for Sepultura. Zyon was only a year and half old, but Max and I took him everywhere we went, and this was no exception! I am very happy we got this photo of Z with them...and I am sure he wishes he could remember chilling with them at the pool!!

We played several shows with them, but the most memorable was the show in Curitiba, at the bottom of a quarry! I wont ever forget it because of the scariest elevator ride in the world we all took to get to the bottom! Creaky and tiny, grating along the wall, and stopping at the bottom of a mined out quarry!! A giant hole with walls!! The Pedreira Leminsk holds 25,000 people, believe it or not!! It is surrounded by a wall of rock that is 30 meters high! It was first opened for concerts in 1990. Paul McCartney played there in 1993 and our show was Nov. 12, 1994.

I was going through a memorabilia album I had made Igor, from Dana's collection of bits and pieces when I come across a signed Ramones promo photo!!!! Super cool!! In fact, I am going to take this month and maybe the next to share some of the posters, photos and fliers from that album! Dana would be more than happy to share them with you!!

Class dismissed...Let's go watch Rock and Roll High School!!
