Motorhead Rules

Have been touring with Motorhead on drums for the last 2 weeks. It has been the most amazing tour I have ever done. Lemmy text me about a week before the beginning of their tour and ask if I could fill in. I was truely honored and overwhelmed at the same time. I was in the middle of moving which as we all know is the worst. But how could I say no. This gig is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I called Lemmy back and said yes and asked when we would rehearse. He said we could do a soundcheck in Washington DC at the 930 club. I felt some anxiety about it but was still very up for the challenge. Mikkey Dee is an amazing drummer with a lot of chops and a double bass drum master. So big shoes to fill in that department. I have had some experience with double bass, but it has never been at the forefront of my playing. Once again a challenge. Motorhead songs are agressive and require power, chops and especially stamina. Being off the road for awhile I had to make sure my energy level was in top form. Being a little older now its not as much about drinking 2 shots backed by 2 beers before hitting the stage. Its more like make sure I'm rested and healthy and ready to rock period. Also not to let any Motorhead fans down who are the mainstay of Motorhead and the most important thing to Lemmy and Phil. I did my homework by watching Videos and learning all the songs with keeping in mind the integrity of the songs. Listening to Mikkeys versions as well as Philthy Phil Taylor who was a much different drummer than Mikkey. And to respect the songs as well as put some of my own flair on them. 8 gigs in I have to say the blisters are healed and the band is sounding great now. Had great shows along the way and met a lot of cool people. I very much appreciate all the support from the Motorhead fans and the band and crew of Motorhead. RockNRoll is alive and well in the USA
Rock On!!!


Fillin in for Mikkey

Hey Friends, Have been out on the road for 6 shows with the mighty Motorhead filling in for the great Mikkey Dee. It is a real honor to be onstage with these guys. Mikkey is some big shoes to fill. Got a text from Lemmy about a week prior to them leaving on tour. Met up with the boys in Atlantic City and watched Mikkey do his thing as well as Boston. Took some notes from the live show and a cool Wacken, Germany DVD to learn the show. Had one rehearsal the day before at 930 Club and jumped in the following night. It was a bit of a challenge I must say. Learning 18 songs , wanting it to be as good as possible so as not to let any of the fans down. 6 gigs in have to say startin to feel great now and want to thank everyone who came out and supported Motorhead in Mikkeys absense. It has been an amazing tour so far hanging with Lemmy, Phil and the entire Motorhead crew. These guys are the real deal and can teach us all a thing or two about Rock n Fuckin Roll. I hope to see you out at the next few shows with Motorhead.
Long Live Lemmy,Phil and Mikkey.... Motorhead!!!!!

Clive is the man

Of all the record people i have ever had the pleasure of working with, I just have to say Clive Davis is the most amazing sweetest guy ever. Ran into him at dinner the other night and wanted to post this.
For those of you that dont know about him he is responsible for Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith Aerosmith, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, Velvet Revolver the list goes on and on Google him
Everything thing great in music in one way or another probably has had some connection to Clive
God Bless Clive,
Matt
