By Metal Dave Looking for some candy-ass rock star interview? Then run from the room screaming! Looking instead for some unscripted, brutally honest, always hilarious and fully intelligent (if not a wee bit profane) insight from rock’s most enduring and uncompromising warhorse? Then stir up some Jack and Coke, have a seat and enjoy my […]

By Metal Dave Santa hasn’t been caught cranking King Diamond’s “No Presents for Christmas,” but I’m still convinced Old Saint Nick has a naughty weakness for heavy metal. How else do you explain Ronnie James Dio’s early years as an Elf? Doh! Lame holiday humor aside, 2Fast2Die is happy to share the very best heavy […]

This 1990 photo features, from left to right, drummer Mark Geary, guitarist Danny Aaron, singer Jason McMaster, guitarist Scott Dalhover and bassist Mike Watson.

GREAT BALLS OF FIRE!: Danny B. Harvey, Lemmy and Slim Jim Phantom revisit some golden oldies rock on their HeadCat album, “Walk the Walk … Talk the Talk.” By Metal Dave Glessner It’s admittedly hard to hear beneath the crush of deafening distortion, but there’s a lot of Little Richard in the roar of Lemmy […]

  ABOVE: Birthday Crew 2011, L-R: Frankie Nowhere, Johnny Venom, Abel Idle, Metal Dave, Natchet Taylor. By Metal Dave Glessner Back in the day, my birthday parties were the stuff of legend. Think “Animal House” meets Megadeth and you’ll start to envision the wreckage. Most of these black-tie affairs took place in San Antonio or just outside […]

A dress code of tattered denim and soiled black leather will be strictly enforced. Cleavage, tattoos and stilettos are optional (but highly encouraged and always appreciated). Billed as a […]

  So my editor at the San Antonio Express-News noticed the recent 2Fast2Die post about Nashville Pussy and decided to forward my 1998 interview with frontman Blaine Cartwright and his guitar-player wife, Ruyter Suys (pictured above, courtesy of the band’s website). Hard to believe it’s been 13 years. You’ll notice the story is preceded below by my […]

ABOVE: Ten Boots Stompin: Dangerous Toys in 1989 with Watson far right. It seems a lifetime of rock’n’roll has turned Mike Watson into a stark, raving – miniature tree enthusiast! Say wha? It’s true, but more on that later.   More pressing is welcome news that Watson and his hard-rocking Dangerous Toys are reuniting Dec. 4 to […]

 I first met Natchet Taylor nearly 10 years ago at my favorite Austin dive bar, Headhunters, where his self-named, three-piece punk-n-roll band used to encore with Danzig and Rancid covers. Just as the Natchet Taylor band was gaining momentum on the strength of an electric live show and a hard-earned 2005 debut album called “Barely Legal,” […]
