unexpected. And some even have
compelling. Today's installment
is an excerpt from Chapter
Seven of my 2012 book, C'MON!
Talking non-stop at about a million miles an hour, Stan is quite a character. Rattling off insider rock and roll stories at a rapid-fire pace, Stan rides a fine line between captivating and annoying. However, I for one, immediately liked the guy. And I think that he liked my band too. In fact, he came to the studio each day we were there that week. We had been recording an EP that was to include a White Zombie-like remake of the 1978 Village People disco hit, “Macho Man.” Stan thought that it was an inventive and hilarious concept and offered to produce the track. However, after noticing some of the rather tongue-in-cheek impromptu vocals, he backed away from the project because, as he put it, we had “gone overboard” with what he referred to as “fag-bashing.”

Although Dead Serios was not fortunate to move forward with Stan in any long-term professional capacity, I appreciated his guidance, encouragement, spirited commentary and uniquely personal (and private) stories.
