"Review of "Shiloh""

11/22/2007: Hauntingly beautiful melody and a great spirit in this song. The arrangement is not the best, but I first listened to this song a few days ago and I can still remember most of it. A pretty-nearly-perfect song! Edgy * Feedback - Meer Music - Fame Games Reviews


"Review of "Jesus Won't Pay Your Phone Bill""

1/21/2008: Very reminiscent of 70s bands like CCR or Three Dog Night in places. I really like this and it doesn´t need much to work in today´s climate. Excellent vocal sound. High promise. Rupert - Meer Music - Fame Games Reviews


"Review of "Jesus Won't Pay Your Phone Bill""

1/21/2008: We´re back to the Age of Aquarius - but totally for the 21st Century. The most unlikely lyrical hook is actually made hookey with good melody and harmony. Here´s something that makes me smile and chuckle. I like it. I think this would get radio requests. Cowbell - Meer Music - Fame Games Reviews


"Review of"

THE VERDICT:
A great 70´s-style song performed in a manner perfectly suitable for the 00´s. This is definitely a superb track and ... it could rock the airwaves anywhere! - meermusic.com


"March and April Short Takes"

Honorable mention. - Minor 7th

Bio

For a while I had a drummer who had his own landscaping company. And, of course, he had a dump-truck. So we built a stage for the back of the dump-truck, where we could secure the drum set, and he would be locked into his seat with straps over him. The rest of the band played in the flat bed, and we would have, what we called, guerilla marketing concerts. The best was one year when we were let into the WHFS festival in WDC. We drove right into the band area, and as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers ended the concert, and all of the people were leaving, we started playing to the thousands of people as they went to their cars. This also happened to coincide with the beginning of the Washington Area Music Association's festival week, so we pulled up to the kick-off party outside of the Hard-Rock Cafe in downtown DC, and played there until the cops shut us down. Going to jail for some of us was well worth the front page of the weekend section in the Washington Post.

The new album, which is my "Nebraska", is called "Rock N'Roll is Killing Me", which is what we used to say to each other all of the time on the road. Now that I am solo, and it's my first acoustic album, it felt right to honor all of my past comrades and bandmates who have hung up their instruments with this title.

My nickname came to be when before my first show with my first band, I got sick, and wasn't sure if I would make the show. The guitar player said to the bass player, "What are we going to do if Eddie's not better by the show?", to which the bass player replied, "We'll call the band Dead Eddie and play all instrumentals!"
Needless to say, I made the show, and have had the name ever since.

I have worked with Eli Janney, of Girls VS Boys, and Larry "Uncle Punchy" Packer, Clutch's producer. And I have played shows with Shudder to Think, Marginal Man, Thudd, Mother May I, Godsmack, Nashville Pussy, Verbena, Polyplush Cats, and to be honest, too many to remember.
