"I'm honored to be a part of music making history with my brothers and I know that people will be more than happy when they hear what comes from us!"
A.N.M. is currently talking to labels in search of a home for what will become one of the highly anticipated releases of 2010. The band plans to spend the winter writing and recording and hopes to release a CD in late spring or early summer.
A few hours ago, Dr Madd vibe sent out this tweet : "My exwife talked me into a fishbone reunion. I think i'm ready for this." Past members Kendall, Dirty Walt and Chris have in the last year joined Fishbone on stage at different occasions. The prospect of an OG reunion is the dream of many familyhood members. Something in store for 2010 and the 25th anniversary of the first EP? As far as I'm concerned, whatever, but please put out new music fast !
Witness Angelo's creativity at work while he puts the last finishing touches to his Last Supper canvasses. To celebrate his 30 years in the music industry, Angelo worked on sharing with the familyhood another facet of his unstoppable creativity. 100 original canvasses depicting Angelo's own version of Da Vinci's Last Supper are customized with drawings and poetry by Angelo.
