After taking a huge financial hit last week via “Words For Your Enjoyment 2.0″ in which yours truly opened his big mouth and offered up a ham (yes, a ham) to the person whose idea I ended up using, I have decided that a well-needed no-pork product hiatus was what we all needed.
And it just happened to coincide with a brand-new edition of Mental Floss Magazine.
The new March/April edition of the magazine, on stands now, features a 10-pager by yours truly called Scatterbrained: Rock n’ Roll. It’s ten pages filled with really humorous and interesting tidbits on the world’s craziest drummers, video games and rock stars joining forces, the British Invasion, groupies, sell-outs and a bunch on the business of rock n’ roll. It was a blast to put together, and inspired a previous post about how rock n’ roll these days is nothing compared to the majesty of what used to be.
If you pick it up, you’ll see — there are great stories and secrets in rock n’ roll’s history, that today’s artists just don’t seem to offer up.
In other news, my piece in the March issue of WIRED is now available for your perusal online. I’d love to know what you guys think about it. Wired or Tired? Your call.
