Lava Room Recording Studio
One of the coolest studios in Cleveland, featuring Pro Tools suites and a live room so good, 92.3 Xtreme Radio uses it for their Xtreme Sessionz with national acts. And John works there, which gives it the weirdness factor.

Joe Brunetti Band
Friends of ours. Great band! Check them out at a club near you!
Raven has "shared" the stage with members of NY Dolls, Guns 'n Roses, Cinderella, Warrent, The Doors, Stone Temple Pilots to name a few. Although Raven's direct approach and attitude have gained him a "love him/hate him" reputation, he would have it no other way.

We got an email from Annette Popson of AMPromotions: "I'd like to actually see the band Ground Zero from Cleveland get some well-deserved press. Not that I'm "promoting" them really, but they're just what we call "THE LAST 'METAL' BAND IN CLEVELAND!" ... you know? REAL Metal? Not "Nu" metal, not "RAP" metal ... just all and all METAL. Their a great band though." Definitely typical Cleveland Weirdness... keep on rocking in the free world.. um, sorry, wrong, um... never mind.
