Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

Goodbye to Big Fancy – Wayland Tour Log 3/6/14

The show was a lot of fun last night. We had a good set but I was so excited to see Zach Myers, Zack Mack, and Chris Allen play. They killed it. At the end of their set we all went up on stage with them and jammed "Take it Easy" by The Eagles and "The Weight" by a The Band. Those guys are such amazing musicians , it's a true honor to play with them.

Wikipedia Is NEVER Wrong – It Doesn’t Matter What the Truth Is!

Hi, my name is Johnnie, and I'm a disbeliever.

(Hi, Johnnie)

I'm not a skeptic, I've seen some crazy s***, so I know there's a lot of stuff out there we can't explain.

I am a disbeliever.  For example, why do we trust sites like Wikipedia and Snopes?  Who's behind it?  Where did the information come from?  Why should we believe anything written on there?

An Asteroid is On Its Way Toward Earth Today – See It Coming at 4pm!

We have less than an hour before an asteroid, NEA DX110, comes close to earth.  How close, you ask?  Closer than the moon, so in space terms, that's like a near miss or something!

The asteroid is between 25 and 30 meters in size, and will pass 10,000 kilometers closer to us than the moon is, but that's still over 350,000 kilometers away.

Heat Wave! – Wayland Tour Log 3/4/14

Last night really escalated quickly. I would love to have watched through the eyes of an outsider as the shenanigans ensued between us and our pals in Bobaflex. When we get together it's like high school kids who's parents have gone on vacation. We can't wait to break every rule we can think of and have the best time doing so!! Haha! We love those guys, and we love their music.

Six String Guitars are for Wimps – This Guy Kicks Your Ass With Fourteen [Video]

Guitars have been heading farther and farther into the extended range for quite a long time now, since Steve Vai popularized the whole 7-string guitar with his Ibanez guitars.  Korn used them in a different way, and tons of bands since have jumped onto the 7, 8, and 9 extended range guitars.  Check out Animals as Leaders...crazy stuff.

Guns N’ Roses ‘Appetite for Democracy’ DVD is Finally Coming Out!

In true GNR fashion, the 3D concert film from Guns N Roses' first Las Vegas residency from 2012 is scheduled for release!  There were teases for the release all last year, and then, suddenly everything went silent.  There were rumors that it actually had to do with the company putting it together, and not Axl.

Just rumors.

The First Really Scary Movie of 2014 Could Be “Haunt” – Check Out the Movie Trailer[Video]

I love me some scary movies! If given a choice of things to see, my first pick will almost always be the scariest movie showing. A lot of times I'm disappointed with what I call the "Hollywood Ending" that most movies give. They like to wrap it all up with some unbelievable schlock that almost ruins the rest of the movie.

Ice, Fog and the Great Plains – Wayland Tour Log 3/2/14

Freezing!!! Our bus isn't insulated at all and there are many holes in it. We don't notice when it's sitting still with the heat cranked, but when we're going 70mph across the Kansas in 2 degree weather, it tends to be all we can think about. I can't get warm. I'm in my bunk, in my sleeping bag, under 2 blankets, and my feet are so cold they might fall off. Because the storm came through the area, we decided not to make the drive to KC last night. It was super foggy and slippery.

Coming Down the Mountain! – Wayland Tour Log 3/1/14

Yesterday was a crazy Friday. We loaded into the club at our usual 5 p.m.

Once we loaded in and sound-checked, Mitch and I started walking to meet our friend Ryan for dinner. It was a 35-minute walk to the Thai restaurant. We laughed the whole way there and talked about out plans for the next few months. Ryan ended up getting stuck at work and we had dinner -- just the two of us.

One Road Up a Mountain! – Wayland Tour Log 2/28/14

Wow! Back in the saddle again! We all spent the three "days off" working from morning to night.

Our days were filled with running errands, getting gear fixed, and booking shows,and planning tour routing. I don't think I set my phone down hardly at all during the break. My plan was to spend time with my guitar but there just wasn't enough hours in the day.
