5/26: ROCKLAHOMA IS HERE, MEMORIAL WEEKEND RECAP, ANGEL REUNION PODCAST
Leaving in a few hours for Tulsa to host Rocklahoma year 10! It’s pretty special to have been a part of something since it’s inception as I have been with this festival. My first trip there hosting it was back in 2007 when it debuted. I had never been to OK before and had no idea what to expect. It’s so very different from the NYC area I have lived in my whole life, but I truly love the change of pace. The first three years of this festival it was geared toward all 80’s. But by 2009 attendance dwindled greatly and in 2010 it relaunched to what it is today, a mix of many genres of rock and metal. In many ways Rocklahoma, along with Rock On The Range, was one of the first American rock festivals done on a consistent basis. Now of course there are many. I’ve hosted this event every year it’s happened except 2010 (due to Dio’s funeral at that time) and it’s always fun and always an adventure. The fans are super supportive of what I do as well and it’s always a blast to see everyone. See you out there in Pryor OK this weekend if going. If not I’ll try and send some tweets and maybe Periscope as well.
