Who is Mase??? That's a very complex question with very simple answers. I was born in Greensboro, NC, but spent my "formative years" misplaced in a little nowhere town in Georgia called Perry. After graduating from high school (in a class of 42 people) I went to college at Ga. Southern in the other armpit of Georgia...Statesboro.
My first radio experience was on our campus station, WVGS (10,000 watts). My roomate/future bandmate and I had a show together where we could do (and did) pretty much anything we wanted. Anything from playing 3 hours of nothing but Johnny Cash, The Minutemen and KISS.Our facilty advisor said our show was "sophomoric", which we thought was great since we were freshmen.
After deciding to move to Atlanta, go to Ga. State Univ., and start a band, I got out of radio...thinking "it would be way cooler to play in a band than to just play bands on the radio". I spent 12 years in Midtown Atlanta, playing drums in a few "regional" bands, sharing the stage with bands like The Ramones, The Offspring and The Foo Fighters. After releasing 3 albums with my own bands, playing on a handful of albums for others, and being involved in a lawsuit against a certain major record label, I lost the dream and decided to get out of Atlanta and move to the ocean with my best friend and the smartest person I know...My wife Joy...so here I am.

We are only a few days away from the release of "Sonic Highways", the new album from Foo Fighters and we've heard 3 songs so far...until now. Here are 2 more. The first was recorded in Austin and features Gary Clark Jr. The second was writen and recorded in L.A...well, kind of. This version was actually recorded for a BBC radio show. The album version will feature Joe Walsh from The Eagles.
That's What's UP!!!
Night 3 of the Foo Fighter residency was as good as the previous 2 nights. This time they played with a guy you might not know...Tony Joe White. He's a Nashville singer/songwriter who's first hit was this 1969 song, "Poke Salad Annie". I remember Elvis doing it on a live album, but I'd never heard Tony do it...especially with Foo. Check it out if you missed it last night. Also...check out what Dave says after the song about Tony.
Also, don't forget Rick Neilson from Cheap Trick will be joining the Foo's tonight and they will more than likely be doing their new single which we will get at some point today.
Last night Foo Fighters continued their residancy on the Letterman show, this time with Ann & Nancy Wilson from Heart joining them. Did they do "Baracuda"? No...did they do "Magic Man"? Oh no...they did a lesser known song "Kick It Out". From the looks of things Dave was pleased.
Ryan Adams has always been known for being a little moody and REALLY doesn't like to be called Bryan Adams. There was a story years ago that he actually had someone kicked out of a show for yelling out "play "Run To You". I remember when he played at House Of Blues he called out some people for talking during an acoustic song. Well, it seems that Ryan has mellowed out some and the other night he actually covered "Run To You". Check it out.
