Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday-Another Old Band

I have only been in a couple bands in my life. There was one time where I would say that my guitar did the talking. I may be no Dimebag Darrell, but I can play a tune here and there. I was in a full cover band named 'The Drunk I Love You's.' We were pretty cool.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday-Crispy Hexagons?

Time for another Throwback Thursday! This picture comes for A LONG time ago, where I was at my friends place after a band practice in my old punk rock band. Usually when I went to a friends house, I raid their fridge (for a good laugh). This time I raided the cupboards and found this gem.

Had to go pick up some tickets to give away here at WGRD (stay tuned for those soon) and I stumbled past a reminder at the Van Andel Arena of an awesome show that I saw! This was the second time that I saw this band, and I remember being really excited to see them a second time in one year!

Free Beer & Hot Wings: Our Co-Worker’s ‘Penis Ears’

The other day, Eric Zane noticed something about our co-worker, Metalhead Ned, here at the home station of "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show," 97.9 WGRD.

Ned had gauges in his ears back in the day, which is when you pierce your ears and then slowly increase the hole size. After a while, your ears have massive holes in them.

Free Beer & Hot Wings Show Chats with Metalhead Ned About His ‘Penis Ears’ [Audio]

Have you ever gauged your ears before? Are they gauged now? Many people can live normal lives with their earrings, but my ears took a turn for the worse when I gauged them. I started to grow a keloid scar...and man, do they suck. Eric Zane has noticed them over the past year and they just needed to know, so I joined them on air!

Metalhead Ned’s Horrible Interview ‘Fail’ With Korn’s Jonathan Davis [Audio]

The 'Art of Interviewing' is a creative thing. Not everyone can interview perfectly, and what you here in a radio interview is normally never live. Getting a perfect interview is rare, and I hoped that would happen with my interview with Korn's Jonathan Davis. Well...not so much...I lost my cool in a matter of seconds.

I like animals, quite a bit. They can give you companionship when you need it, and are always full of life and energy. I used to have a Chameleon named Gene...he was awesome. I was able to snap a picture of one of my highly energetic cats I have living with me...he is very excited.
