Train Wreck

Back in October of 1990, I entered a contest offered on a Milwaukee radio station called, "Win Your Own Hour On Our Airwaves." The contest was simple, really; Write them a letter & tell them why they should pick me. So, I wrote the letter and I WON, and the rest, like they say is history! Ten days later I would have my first radio gig. Since then I have worked in radio part-time (around my full-time jobs) in Beaver Dam, WI, Appleton, WI, Tuscon, AZ, and for the past 11 years, right here in Rochester, MN. I enjoy going to concerts and supporting live music, My absolute favorite band live is ZZ - TOP, who I've seen LIVE 29 times, uncle Ted Nugent 25 times, and many, many more artists/bands multiple times as well. Some of my other 'favs' are Stone Temple Pilots & Black Sabbath. And yes, I have met both Scott Weiland & Ozzy. Add Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins & Pink Floyd, along with Neil Young & Foo Fighters, to new acts like Royal Blood. Basically, I like anything that ROCKS with a hard guitar edge. I have been to over 400+ concerts so far, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. If you wish, just call me #theConcertGuy. I enjoy my gas grill, growing heirloom Hungarian peppers on my deck, playing acoustic guitar & harmonica, along with my full time job working outdoors at a local, well known garden center on 2nd St. in Rochester. Working here at Z-Rock is a true passion, and it is still as thrilling and fun as it was on my first day in radio. Oh yeah, I am a proud papa, grand dad, and five-year Navy aviation veteran, too! LONG LIVE THE MUSIC...........LONG LIVE ROCK! \m/\m/

One Year Ago – Remembering Scott Weiland

One year ago (Dec 3rd) we lost one of the most dynamic & enigmatic front-men of the 90's 'grunge' era. He was inspirational on stage, a train wreck off-stage, but admired & loved by fellow artists and fans alike. Always a target for the media.
