Guest Occupation: DR. RICHARD GROSSMAN Ph.D. - Exploring Ayahuasca, Acupuncture and Healing
Guest Biography:

Richard Grossman is a acupuncturist and an Oriental medical doctor, who works extensively with a variety of healing modalities which include herbal medicine, sound healing and ayahuasca.

Early on in his education, he had the assignment to decide what he wanted to be when he grew up. Without thinking, his answer was that he wanted to study the effects of plants and medicines on the mind – this, without even knowing that such a thing existed.

His spiritual search also started early. He was a voracious reader, focusing on Asian and South Asian philosophies and shamanism.

By the age of 15, he had concluded that the only reason to be alive was to help others out of their suffering. It was the beginning of his calling to the path of the healer.

Richard’s spiritual journey took him next to India. There, on the banks of the Ganges, he studied meditation and the deep connection between body, mind, and spirit.

Shortly after beginning his medical practice, his lifelong interest in healing and spirit merged again, joined, this time, by the power and profound beauty of entheogens with sound and music, and went on to study extensively with indigenous healers in Ecuador and Peru.

He now leads ayahuasca ceremonies in many parts of the world, and continues to offer his gifts and wisdom in the service of helping others.

Steve Chirico
Guest Occupation: Mayor of Naperville, Illinois
Guest Biography:

Steve Chirico was first elected to the office of mayor in 2015 as Naperville’s first new mayor in two decades. As a seasoned business leader, Mayor Chirico understands how a well-balanced community, a strong business climate and a solid economic development plan impacts the vitality of a world-class community like Naperville.

Throughout the first four years of his administration, Mayor Chirico, alongside the Naperville City Council, focused on implementing a long-range financial plan for the City. These efforts resulted in the lowest municipal tax rate Naperville has seen in 50 years, a return to structurally balanced budgeting, $33 million added to citywide cash reserves, and an anticipated 24.5% reduction in general corporate debt by the end of 2019. Now in his second term, Mayor Chirico’s administration continues to focus on public safety improvements, encourage development in the community, and address the need for housing options that cater to millennials and senior citizens.

Mayor Chirico has lived in Naperville for more than half a century and has observed the ongoing changes in this City firsthand. After graduating from Naperville Central High School, he attended Northern Illinois University and started a small tile shop to help pay his way through school. That shop has since grown to become Great Western Flooring, which still has its administrative offices, warehouse and a showroom in Naperville, in addition to two other showrooms in Oswego and St. Charles.

Mayor Chirico and his wife, Julie, have seven children all born and raised in Naperville. Mayor Chirico has been active in the community and region for many years. This includes his term as a City Council member from 2011-2015, his work with 360 Youth and Family Services, Naperville Responds for Our Veterans, the Downtown Naperville Alliance (DNA), City of Naperville Advisory Cultural Commission, the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce Legislative Steering Committee, and the DuPage Mayors & Managers Conference, which he serves as president of for the 2019 fiscal year. Most recently, Mayor Chirico was named by Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker to serve on the nine-member Illinois Firefighters Pension Investment Fund (IFPIF) Transition Board.

Widely regarded as the best place to raise a family, work, and retire, Naperville has received several awards throughout Mayor Chirico’s tenure, including being ranked in the top 25 best neighborhoods for small business, the best city to raise a family in America, and the safest city in America.

Mayor Chirico’s tireless dedication to Naperville, coupled with his passion for the City and devotion to serving its residents and businesses, continue to make Naperville the premiere location to live, work, and explore in the Chicago metropolitan region.

Mayor Chirico's current term expires in 2023.

Guest Biography:

Marc Fisher, a senior editor of The Washington Post, reports and writes on a wide range of topics. He has been the enterprise editor, local columnist and Berlin bureau chief, among other positions, over

30 years at the paper. Fisher wrote several Post articles that won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 2016 and the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2014.

SPECIAL GUEST

ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS with RAY SHASHO

 

Guitar-shredding virtuoso George Lynch has reteamed with former Dokken bandmate Jeff Pilson for a set of new studio recordings that turn pop music classics into powerful metal anthems! The two have previously made metal magic together as a duo on the 2003 album Wicked Underground, which was recently reissued on vinyl, as well as with other projects such as T&N and The End Machine. But this new batch of recordings, entitled appropriately enough Heavy Hitters, stands apart not only for its outstanding roster of players and vocalists including head Bulletboy Marq Torien, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore, Kansas native Wil Martin (Earshot) and drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake/Ozzy) but for the jaw-dropping song selection. If you’ve ever wondered what an amped-up, full-throttle version of Carole King’s “I Feel The Earth Move” or Prince’s “Kiss” or Oasis’ “Champagne Supernova” or Madonna’s “Music,” then this is the album for you!

As a special treat, the band has released the first single from the album – a powerful rendition of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” – featuring Martin on vocals, offering just a small taste of what’s in store.

When George Lynch joined Dokken in the early 1980’s, success came very quickly. As history proves, much of the band’s album sales and credibility is the result of George Lynch’s guitar abilities and songwriting. With Dokken, Lynch recorded five albums from 1983 to 1988, all of which did remarkably well in the United States, Europe and Asia. This worldwide success made George Lynch one of the most influential rock guitarists in modern music, even earning the band a Grammy nomination in 1989 for Best Rock Instrumental. 1989 was also the year the George parted ways with Dokken and began the new decade with a different approach…enter the Lynch Mob.

By the early 1990s George had become a marquee guitar hero throughout the world.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-banishment-debut-album--3#/

The Banishment is a three-piece passion project and collaboration between guitarist GEORGE LYNCH, programmer & multi-instrumentalist JOE HAZE

& LA based artist DEVIX. 

Original recording sessions began in 2015 when Haze & Lynch set out to challenge themselves and charter new territories after living through two separate and already prolific careers.  

Stepping out from behind the curtain Joe Haze has co-written and produced this new single with his first functioning band in over 10 years.  Meanwhile, Lynch has been met with opposition pushing his creativity into darker, more subliminal and chaotic territories since the 90s, finally together they’ve found a solid work-flow and composed dozens of plausible album cuts.

After 5+ years of failed attempts auditioning various vocalists with names to street corner crooners The Banishment was close to being shelved or released as an instrumental project.  

Enter "DEVIX AKA" (Devix Szell).  Grinding teeth against metal in the Los Angeles underground with bands like THE NARCOSIS DESIGN & SYMBOLISM (feat. original members of CHRISTIAN DEATH & SAMHAIN), Devix has been contributing to the self-proclaimed #DREAMPUNK genre.

Through a series of chance meetings and name droppings at the 2019 Cold Waves Music Festival, Devix was introduced to Joe Haze, vetted and finally introduced to guitar legend George Lynch.  

Upon hearing the words “DREAM PUNK”. The project was creatively green lit by Lynch and the three have been collectively working around the unpredictable Covid 19 Lockdown restrictions.

Now with lyrics by Devix and full collaboration with Lynch & Haze... LOST HORIZON is the first of many traxxx to come.  With your help, THE BANISHMENT will complete what is sure to be a memorable and important connection to the planet's survival mechanisms and leave a mark in each artists' respective catalogs.

LEGENDARY ROCK BAND

F I R E F A L L

RELEASES NEW CD

ENTITLED

 C O M E T

FIRST NEW ALBUM IN MORE THAN TWO DECADES 

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH LONGTIME BAND MEMBER

D A V I D 

M U S E 

Very few legendary rock groups boasting a string of seminal 1970s hits contain three original members in their ranks more than four decades later. Even fewer have a brand-new album out that vividly captures the sound and power of their best-known classics. Firefall has both. That’s reason for serious celebration from their legion of loyal fans.

“Firefall hasn’t made a new record for a long, long time, since the ‘90s,” says Jock Bartley, the band’s founding lead guitarist and vocalist. “With three of us original guys in the band—myself, Mark Andes on bass, and David Muse on saxophone, flute, and keyboards—we’ve been touring, and it just felt to me as leader of the band, ‘It’s time. We need to start looking at material, writing material, to put a new album out.’” 

Comet, out December 11 on Sunset Blvd. Records, is that long-awaited release. Their lineup completed by drummer Sandy Ficca and singer/guitarist Gary Jones, Firefall set out to make an album on the same lofty artistic par as their ‘70s classics for Atlantic Records, when they set the pop singles charts ablaze with “You Are The Woman,” “Just Remember I Love You,” and “Strange Way.” They succeeded magnificently. 

The band had to overcome a few obstacles along the way. “The problem was that the five members of the band live in five different states,” says Jock, who produced the disc along with the band and a handful of collaborators. “When we’d fly somewhere to a gig, at soundcheck or something, we might look at a new song or talk about recording or whatever. But to get all of us in the same town at the same time to record was really a challenge for me. We’d have a gig in Colorado, and everybody would come out and we’d stay out for a couple of days and record a couple of songs. Same thing when we’d go into Nashville—we’d go stay at Gary’s house and go in the studio and record a song or two.” 

Conquering those logistical roadblocks was worth all the effort. The rocking opener “Way Back When,” one of four tracks on the set that Bartley wrote or co-wrote, pays tribute to the classic musical era that inspired Firefall. “The first verse and first chorus is set in 1965. The second verse and chorus is ‘67, and the third verse and chorus is 1969,” says Bartley. “The first verse is kind of the Beatles and the Stones sand the Byrds. The second verse is Aretha Franklin and the Young Rascals and the groups that had music out then. I sing the song, but the person singing the lyrics is looking back and remembering how the ‘60s were so vibrant and had such great music. We thought it would never end.”

Firefall cut its 1976 Atlantic debut album at Criteria Studios in Miami. It included “You Are The Woman.” “Rick was thinking in his head, ‘I need to write a really happy, positive pop song that’ll be in the Top Ten!’ And he wrote ‘You Are The Woman,’” says Jock. “Some of us in the band didn’t really like it, because it was really different. It wasn’t like ‘Mexico’ or ‘Livin’ Ain’t Livin’’ or ‘Cinderella’ or any of that strummy, fast, ballsy stuff that Firefall was becoming. But boy, most everybody, including the producer and then Atlantic Records, they heard that song, and they went, ‘That’s what we want!’” “You Are The Woman” crashed the Top Ten. 1977’s “Just Remember I Love You” and “Strange Way” the next year cemented their stardom. 

“Boulder, Colorado became this hotbed for music, and Firefall was kind of the shining light out of that,” says Jock. “A lot of people have called Firefall ‘the Colorado Sound.’” Now Comet is poised to rocket into the cosmos, the latest chapter in Firefall’s amazing saga.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

 

Tesla bassist Brian Wheat lifts the lid on living the rock ’n’ roll life while struggling with anxiety, depression, and other issues seldom discussed by musicians in his new book, ‘Son of a Milkman: My Crazy Life with Tesla,’ which was released on December 15, 2020 via Post Hill Press and co-penned by Chris Epting).

Far from your typical rock star, as bassist for the multi-platinum band, Tesla, Brian has enjoyed the spoils of success and lived the sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll lifestyle to the hilt. But it came at a cost, one that took years to repair.

In this deeply honest and utterly revealing memoir, Wheat sheds light on the many challenges he faces, including bulimia, weight issues, and the crippling anxiety and depression caused by his conditions. Just like the songs his legendary band made; this is no-nonsense, blue-collar storytelling at its best.

While revealing the vulnerable human behind the bass guitar, this autobiography also offers tremendous stories of life on the road, and collaborations and encounters with legendary figures like his pals in Def Leppard, David Lee Roth, Alice Cooper, and Paul McCartney.

Brian is best known as the bass guitarist of the platinum-selling band, Tesla, which he cofounded in 1982. Tesla became one of the biggest bands of the late 1980s–1990s. Brian owns a recording studio by the name of J Street Recorders in Sacramento, California. Papa Roach, Tesla, Pat Travers, Deftones, Kodiak Jack, Flashfires, and many others have recorded there.

Chris Epting is an award-winning journalist and the author of many books, including ‘Adrenalized’ (co-written with Def Leppard’s Phil Collen) and ‘Change of Seasons’ (co-written with John Oates).

Featuring a foreword by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and an afterword by renowned rock photographer Ross Halfin, ‘Son of a Milkman’ will entertain, surprise, and inspire longtime fans of this enduring band.
