Disappointment Of The Year
Special Thanks:

Before I say anything else, I would just like to say the music world suffered a tragic loss this year with the passing of Kevin DuBrow. At this time, I would just like to extend my deepest sympathy to all of Kevin’s family and friends. Rest in Peace… you will be missed.

Yes, it’s that time of year again and time for me to spew forth yet another essay to all of those of whom I am extremely grateful to and who have helped and supported not only my work, but everyone else here at ROCKEYEZ as well.

So, as always, lets start with all the artists and musicians I have had the pleasure of meeting, interviewing or hanging out with over the past year. This includes (but is not exclusive to) John Macaluso, Ted Poley, Vic Rivera, Ray West, Bill Farley, and Jim Santos… all of you whom I consider not only just brilliant musicians and artists, but very dear friends as well, Doug Odell, Kevin Chalfant, Ian Chris, Michael Eden, Jimi Jamison, all the guys in GOODBYE THRILL, Brandin Lea and all the guys in FLICKERSTICK, Dave Meniketti, Eric Ragno, AMERICAN ANGEL, Chigger and all the guys in HOSTEL INC., Randy Jackson, UNTIL DESTINY, Joe Manno and all the guys from TWITCH, ATOM STRANGE, Bill Leverty, Joe Lynn Turner, Eric Martin, Kelly Keagy, Jim Peterik, Jack Blades, Rudy Sarzo, NELSON, Mark Slaughter, Joe Slattery, Glenn Pierson, Jamie Rowe and all the guys in CRUNCH, John Waite, Tim Hogan and finally Jimmy Leahey.

Next I would like to thank all the PR people, managers, management companies and record labels I have had the pleasure of working with over the past year. This includes… but again is not exclusive to: Crissy Baronak, Carol Kaye and everyone at KAYOS PRODUCTIONS, Tim Hogan, everyone at WOLFSON PUBLIC RELATIONS, Lisa Walker at TO THE MAX, Chip Ruggieri and everyone at CHIPSTER P.R., John Kivel, Oliver at ARTISTWORXX, Josh & everyone at 10th STREET ENTERTAINMENT, Andy Craven and everyone at LION MUSIC, Dave Maida, everyone at ARIEL P.R., all the folks over at PERRIS RECORDS, SPV RECORDS, Z-RECORDS, SANCTUARY RECORDS, Jason Elzy at RHINO RECORDS, and Ari Nisman at DEGY ENTERTAINMENT.

And lastly, I would like to once again thank Brian & Stephanie Rademacher for all their hard work and dedication in keeping this whole thing together. A very special thank you to Andrew McNeice at MELODICROCK.COM for all his help, support and for taking care of all of us at his anniversary show in Indiana. Mark Balogh again for his years of friendship. My dear friends Al Wenzel , The Sibrel Family, Dave & Terri Dillon as well as their children Steven , Kelly , Megan and Skylar for all their love and support over the years. All my family ( Margaret Glassic , Marion Glassic , her boyfriend James and her children Jackie & Joe , my brother-in-law David , his wife Rachael and their family, Victor & Deborah Garces , Abelardo & Clara Garces , Laura and her children Thomas & Alex )… I love you all very much. And finally, Fabiola and Segundo Fernandez whom I now affectionately and proudly call Mom & Dad … thank you for all your support, help, kindness and love. And, of course, my beautiful wife and partner Judith who I can never thank enough for all that you do and all that you are... I love you very, very much.
