Alright I have to tell someone about this!! Alright so last night im chilling a pretty decent rock club in houston right and we are chilling with some friends in a band right. They recorded at this studio and Bobby Blotzer ( of RATT ) was the one who owned it they had met him and all that jazz. We are sitting there and up comes Bobby , says Hey to our friends and goes " Hey , you guys are from Capital Volume huh?" Im like HOLY CRAP this guy knows MY band we start talking about rock music today and all ,get into a long convo we hear some stoies bout seeing Nikki Sixx , Slash and everyone just hanging out on the strip. He said that he likes our band and that the name is really really catchy. Anyways he asked you know what we were doin out , did we know the band playing or you know... I was like well we came here to watch the bands and try to get a gig here , he says you got one dont worry. Calls over the manager says " This band is a new and upcoming hard ****in rock band ,no bull shit , balls out , young and fresh give them a slot on the busiest night of the week , you will NOT be dissapointed" , manager gives us his home number and bobby gives us his cell and we called earlier to set dates up and all. Im sorry but as a 15 year old rock guitarist , I find this to be BAD ASS!

^ Yea im thinking about trying that , we all have the old ass crappy VHS cams though. What we might do is record it , but use like audition to replace audio with a studio version of the song lol like a crappy music video. We'll see hopefully we can get some mp3's up by next month , and record a demo and try to get a local label interested.

Props, that's lucky as hell.


Not to kill the buzz, but no record company in their right mind would give a fifteen year old a record deal, so don't shoot too high.


But play a kickass show! Because there's no reason not to.
