House of Guardian!
Coming to a drive-in near you!
But ‘tis true that Guardian is back in the saddle!
Yeah…you’ve heard that one before…right?
In fact, many of you have written me with valid questions such as:
Q: What is the deal with all the false starts on rumored Guardian activity? Are you guys really that lame?
A: First off, yes…we are that lame. We are a bunch of old guys now with 18 kids between us. We have false-started more times than a drunken sprinter. But House of Guardian will change all that…and the world will soon be a better place! Ha!
Q: What the heck is House Of Guardian?
A: House of Guardian is a web-based video show that will feature live Guardian performances, interviews and other types of tomfoolery. We figured if we can’t get Guardian out of the house to see the fans…we’ll bring the fans in to see Guardian in the house! Look for it soon at www.houseofguardian.com. For those who are twitter-inclined, you can follow the action at: www.twitter.com/houseofguardian.
Q: So, which poor sap volunteered his house to be trampled underfoot by all you clowns?
A: Jamey Perrenot…the newest member of Guardian. He plays guitar and has great hair. (…and even though he has played with LeAnn Rimes and Taylor Swift…Dude can rock!)
Q: Is Tony still in the band?
A: Of course! We just wanna be more like Aerosmith so we added another guitar player!
OK—on a serious note…Tony has been quite busy as a mixer/record producer these days and has not had time for many of the live show offers that still come our way. Jamey has become our touring guitarist…so when we finally came up with the idea for H.O.G….we decided to go for the twin guitar attack. Jamie Rowe plays guitar as well so look for a cover of “Flirtin’ With Disaster” by Molly Hatchett from us here soon. Yes…Guardian is now a five-piece band.
Q: Is this for real?
A: Oh…mosdef! (except for the Molly Hatchett cover!) We shot the pilot episode on 2/21. Now we have mountains of videotape and gigabytes of audio takes to go through. It has just dawned on us how much work we have created for ourselves…but we had a blast…so this will be fun!
Q: David Bach is always whining about how bad the music business is...and how musicians should get real jobs etc.--Isn’t this a contradiction of sorts?
A: The rules don’t apply to Guardian. We defy the boundaries of time and space. And for the record...David Bach is paying his penance with some savage blood blisters!
…You heard it here first!
