If you live in Detroit then you must know all about DRUID PERFUME!!! After THE PIRANHAS broke up some of the guys decided to add WADE on sax and start a new prog-freak-aktion band. I just finished editing a new dvd for the band and made the cover art too.

Man it was sad last month when RON ASHETON from the STOOGES died but somehow I'm even sadder that LUX INTERIOR from THE CRAMPS died the other day!!! When I was a kid (1983) I never even heard of THE STOOGES---the records were hard to find and they didn't have their comeback yet---but boy did I love THE CRAMPS!!! They helped create a PSYCHOBILLY scene in Detroit when ELVIS HITLER, SNAKEOUT and THE GORIES were all influenced by them. I first saw THE CRAMPS on the NIGHT FLIGHT cable tv show in the early 80's??? It was on USA NETWORK or something??? Anyways they played URGH A MUSIC WAR and THE CRAMPS were awesome!!! Then I finally got to see them live in person in 1986---it was great!!! R.I.P. LUX INTERIOR and I hope the best for his widow and CRAMPS guitarist POISON IVY!!! And then I realized that LUX had the same birthday (October 21) as both me and my beautiful wife!!! No wonder I loved him so much!!!

Our pal Jim Shaw is being treated for cancer and has no health insurance!!! So there is a benefit show on Saturday February 7, 2009 at the MAGIC STICK and CPOP GALLERY in Detroit. I made a painting just for this event---it's called FUZZ---it will be auctioned off at CPOP---I hope it makes a lot of money for Jim!!!
