From the eighties to present day, Dale is making music from his heart full of riff, melody and words inspired his life's many tales.
Today we had the rare and ultra cool opportunity to speak with the notorious artist Mark Riddick. There is no one like the great Riddick in heavy metal artwork. From his early days illustrating cassette covers and flyers all the way back to 1991, having his artwork featured on televisions programs, art exhibitions all over the planet, his books and more, his work is instantly recognized and revered by metal fans in the entire underground. I've known Mark for many years and have the honor of his artistic work for GSDD and recently for my doom band Cemetery Crows.

This week we had a special, very rare interview with one of the greatest musicians to ever rock the mic: Toronto born and NYC bred, by way of the Florida, the great singer and author Alex Mitchell. Alex has fronted the pioneer swamp rock band Circus of Power since 1988, had a few kick ass bands like Plastic Gator Machine and others and also written a few books. I have always thought Alex was a world class frontman, blues singer and more. I always loved this band and it's been a gift to be in contact with Alex. Circus of Power has a big audience and their music is still being cranked up loud by many. Living in California and getting ready to launch a new wave of the band’s music, I did this interview with Alex where we talk about his life, new film project, writing and music. - G
