The Batjerk "dies" on the Exorcist steps...
Hullo, Metal Minute devoted!
Today your happy host turns the big 4-0 and it's surreal in a fashion but I'm examining what I've done right to this point and what I might not've, as people usually do on a landmark birthday. What I can say in relation to this site is what I always say; The Metal Minute exists to serve you and the industry and your allegiance is a gift unto itself.
As today is crazy busy, I celebrated over the weekend with a road trip into Virginia and a sit-down with Ratt's Bobby Blotzer, one of the most rewarding interviews I've done. The show afterwards was insane and Ratt was in fine gear. Yours truly was flashed by a pair of drunken ladies like it was the eighties and before I could say "what the hell happened?" the show turned up a notch onstage and the crowd with it. If that stunt with the girls had happened before I got married I might've appreciated it more.
Then a haunt into Georgetown in Washington, DC for a stop at the nefarious stairwell used in The Exorcist. Nothing has changed at that location since 1973, except the graffiti. Quite an experience.
And with that, the Batjerk is throwing his Catwoman and Robin into the Jerkmobile and asking y'all to stay tuned to this Batjerk channel...
