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.

Looks like Kim Deal has decided to leave the Pixies. Granted they "broke-up" for 11 years and haven't played live since 2011, but there has always been talk of a new album. No word from Pixies camp if she will be replaced or if they will just call it a day. Either way it kind of sux. Find out more details here at Pitchfork.com In the meantime..enjoy Ms. Deal's work in the video below.
This guy got some good news last nights. 22 years after their last show, Minniapolis's finest (other than PRINCE) The Replacements will be playing 3 shows. They are going to head line all 3 Riot Fest shows (Chicago, Denver & Toronto) in Sept. I know, I know, it won't be the same thing as when I saw them many years ago. But even if it is just Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson, it was still be all kinds of awesome. Check them out playing live on the very short lived International Rock Awards from '89.
If you have 50 minutes to spare, I think you should watch the Ramones run through 25 songs.
Kings Of Leon have a new album coming out in Sept. I could go into all the details...OR...I could let Jimmy Fallon do it for me.
We always known that Queens of the Stone Age are all kinds of awesome. Here's just another example of why. Earlier this week on the BBC Joshe and the boys covered Robin Thicke's "Blured Lines". Check it out here.
Thom Yorke, Flea and the rest of Atoms For Peace are about to head out on a world tour. You can't tour if you don't rehearse. Check out this footage of the band (mostly Thom) working on "Rabbit In Your Headlights" a song Thom did with the EDM band UNKLE back in 1998. The closest date we have is in Fairfax, VA on Sept. 30
