1983 Live Show Footage

3:01am

Whadda day today! Australia interview, Joe Gage, now this!

Thomas De Pascale video taped my live show, back in 1983 at "9 LANGSDOWN" Club (next to Club Spit) in Boston. He contacted me today to say hi & let me know that he still has the footage. I don't have any pictures, footage or record of my live shows. Apparently this is the only existing record/footage. He's going to transfer it from 3/4 inch video to DVD so I can have a look at it. If it's in good shape, hopefully we can get it out for all to see! As things develop, I'll update you..

Joe Gage

2:41am

As some of you may know, I started my music career doing soundtracks for adult films. The most known was Heatstroke, by Joe Gage. It made it as a track of the same title, on my first album.

It's been over 25 years since I've spoken to him.
We emailed each other today and he asked if I would be interested in working with him again for a film he's doing for Titan Media. I'll keep ya posted on the outcome !

Be Bop Rock / Australia Interview

2:34am

Tues I'm doing a phone interview for Australia National Radio. Eric Langston is doing a show on the history of Hip Hop. I'm glad he contacted me, we had a great international phone chat the other day, can't wait for the interview ! Hopefully I'll get a copy of the audio interview to post for you to hear...

Eric had a RARE copy of Hip Hop Be Bop with a rap added to it. It was released a few months after Hip Hop Be Bop and only pressed a few hundred copies. It was called Be Bop Rock. Here's a hidden link for you to hear it. Just copy/paste this link into your browser !
