BIG NEWS!!! GOONIES REUNION IS A REALITY!!!!
HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!! BE KIND TO THE EARTH TODAY…..and everyday!
Well it has been another busy week for us, with the show at The Key club, and then the show at The Whisky, and then we went to Coachella to see Sir Paul McCartney thats what I call 8 days a week. So first off a bit more on the Green carpet event…….
I would like to say thank you to all of the amazingly positive reviews that we have received, it seems the thunder storm of positive energy just keeps rolling in. We have posted a few of these on our news page. The most exciting one was from the number one Pink Floyd fan site in the world Brain Damage. They have been very supportive of the TM album, so much so, that they sent a journalist out to cover the Green Carpet event. Their comments are so flattering that I got the chills just reading them. They even went as far as to compare the Technology Analogy album and live show to the likes of PF’s Division Bell and Momentary Lapse of Reason albums. That is an overwhelming compliment from the very heart of the PF fan base. Thank you to Brain Damage and all of their staff and readers. Your acknowledgement and recognition proves to us that we are definitely on the right musical path. The article can be found at www.brain-damage.co.uk .
In further news about the event you will notice in our photo section some pics from the evening have started making their way to the site …many more to come. we will be posting a slew of exclusive pics right here on our site. You can also find many pics by searching around on our myspace page at www.myspace.com/technologyanalogy. Some pics are posted there as well as on some of the band members own private pages. Check out Rob Heskins page for a ton of great pics. And as I predicted some “bootleg footage has ended up on youtube for those who can’t wait to get a glimpse of the pro DVD that we are working on. Also Michael who is one of the student filmmakers at the Brooks Institute called me today and told me he is working away on editing the 6 camera shoot. He has assured me I will be able to get a glimpse within the next couple of weeks. I am currently planning on putting a great DVD package together which I will seek distribution for, and hopefully figure out a way to sell it with a portion of the proceeds going to Global Green USA. I will keep you posted on that.
As far as The Whisky show is concerned, thank you to all who participated, all who showed up, and all involved with putting the event together. It was definitely the most intimate show TM has ever done as we didn’t go on until 12:30 AM and played until 1:30AM which is very late for a Thursday night. So needless to say it was a much smaller crowd than previous events. However the message of the night was equally as powerful with excellent performances and presentations from all involved. I would like to thank my wife Susie for a job well done as the eveningsco-host. I would also like to thank Amber Lake for dedicating her time. I do believe they raised a good deal of money for the Animals who are stuck in Labs and for Last Chance for Animals investigative research into the inhumane treatment of these animals. I was proud to be asked to be a part of the event and TM was happy to rock the place. We will be posting some pics from that event on our home page as well.
In regards to all of your comments about wanting to see TM perform in different places around the world such as England, Germany, Australia, and across the US and elsewhere, please trust that we are doing everything we can to make that dream a reality. We would love nothing more than to bring the show all over the world, we just need to talk to the right promoters who can put it all together so if you are such a promoter or know those who can help please contact the bands management at firstname.lastname@example.org as we are now fielding offers for a world tour. Oh yeah, we would love to play the Glastonbury festival by the way, and we are working on it.
A quick word about Coachella (we would love to play there next year as well) all I can say is that Paul rocked that place. He was AMAZING!! For a man to be an innovator of music for as long as he has to still put the intensity into a performance as he did was truly inspiring to watch. He is Truly today’s King of Rock and Roll. What a performance!! He played for almost 3 hours, ending his perfect set at almost 1AM and just think he is only 66 years old, as a vegetarian, he looked and sounded so great, I wouldn’t be surprised if he has another 20 years of performances left in him. That is what inspires me the most, the idea of never letting age get the best of you and remaining youthfully energetic well into your years. I can only hope and dream to be standing in front of a sold out crowd rocking it at 66.
Now on to the VERY EXCITING NEWS of the day! The Goonies cast together with Director Richard Donner and Executive Producer and Story writer Steven Spielberg have reunited for a very special photo shoot as an exclusive for the 20th anniversary of England’s Premier Film Magazine EMPIRE! The Birthday issue which is being guest edited by Mr. Spielberg himself will hit stands in the UK this Thursday. I believe they are also launching a US version of the magazine as part of this special celebration. Along witha group photo of the cast , and Producers, there are exclusive one on one photos and interviews with each member of the cast. In addition there was also a lot of video shot that day. We even did a group interview on camera exclusively for Empire, where we all reminisced about the amazing times we shared together making the film, a few unheard Goonie secrets, and reflected on our collective love for the film and hopes for its future. This was a very special day for all of us. I will go more into detail about the events of the day in my next blog, but for now I would like to thank EMPIRE for giving me the right to announce this exclusively at CF.net and want to inform you that to see it all for yourselves please go to www.empireonline.com. Don’t miss this one, who knows if it will ever happen again. Hopefully it is just the start of more good Goonie things to come. Either way I would like to thank Steven Spielberg for orchestrating this whole thing, as I know how special it is for all of us. It was great to catch up with Steven, and Dick, and the cast, and I’m sure your gonna love it.
Well thats it for now, so until next time……………
PEACE LOVE HAPPINESS TRUTH
