Tom & Eric blog posts

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Tom recently posted a trailer for the film “Midway” on his blog.  I was happy to see this, because it’s a subject that I have strong opinions and feelings about.

Eric Stefani also posted an interesting entry to his blog regarding the design of the self-titled album cover:

“The “Pitcairn Motel ” in Anaheim

It was twenty years ago today . . .

I used a Motel in Anaheim to get the right lettering for my bands logo. It’s got two themes of letter to give a cartoon flavor. Gwen the singer of the band want the logo set in flames. I thought it made it more Heavy Metal but I tried to make the flames “flat” and “stylize” to work with the logo from the album.
I was very disappointed that after spending so much time on it to find out after handing the artwork over to the person in charge of the art that they carelessly retraced my artwork in the computer. It came out wobbly and was not accurate to my hand inked artwork.
It still makes me sad that this was the best they could come up with.
This logo I created for the band was made in 199o for the album released on March 17, 1992.”


gear sale, etc.

Hello!  I’m a little late on this, so you probably already know everything, but I’m going to post it anyway! :p  lol

No Doubt is clearing out the band warehouse, and has put up some misc. gear, tour props, etc. for auction on eBay!!  From the official:

“To make room for new stuff, No Doubt’s touring crew recently went through the band’s warehouse and cleared out a bunch of gear, equipment and props the band no longer need. These items are being listed on eBay here by seller dvamp2u (the only legitimate seller of this gear). A number of items such as amplifiers, keyboards, rack/outboard gear, guitar effects, pedal boards, staging, props, back drops and road cases will be listed over the next few weeks. Check the eBay page regularly for new listings. Unless specified, we cannot identify which (if any) tour these items are from, nor can we accommodate any requests to get items autographed or authenticated (please do not ask).  More information can be found in the descriptions of each item.

Everything will be sold at no reserve. We cannot accommodate any requests to have items autographed and no certificate of authenticity will be included.”
Can someone please buy me the orange road case?!!  :)
Adrian played drums with Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger of The Doors at the OC Fair in Costa Mesa, CA on the 5th!  In this YouTube video, you can see him on stage starting at around the 5:15 mark:
