|The Atomic Punk|
As for The Atomic Punks, they have been jamming old school Van Halen hits since 1994 from the "Diamond Dave" era with songs such as "You Really Got Me" and "Bottoms Up" just to name a few. Members include: Brian Geller (Vocals) Lance Turner (Lead Guitarist) Joe Lester (Bass) and drummer, Scott Patterson had folks dancing in the streets to feverish beats to all the Van Halen classics. This had been a spectacular moment, so far with pure rock-n-roll energy.
My dear friend and associate producer for Sounds of the Underground, Eddie Bak was my ride to the show. It seem as if all the cool kids came to this party, and I mean everyone I know was there that night. John Dobbs (Paradoxx) Danny Romaine (One Way Street) and Mike Gaynor (High Alert) were the all at the show enjoying the good life. Mike and I dipped out of the crowd to smoke-up, but that was not a good idea with all these bratty kids running around being nosy. So, we went back to the front of the stage and I wanted to take some pictures for this article. "Can you hold my beer Mike?" I asked politely. Gaynor nodded with agreement and in less than a minute, that bum ran off with my half full cup of cold beer. At first, I wanted to chain whip Gaynor for being a beer thief. However, Mike was cool smoking up with me, and who can blame him with those long-ass lines waiting for cold suds.

I did not see Eddie until the second half of The Atomic Punk set as they played "Hot For Teacher." and we needed to get more beer. The beer lines where bogus as well as being ridiculous and waiting a half hour to get a drink around here was Un-American in my eyes. Ah. The memories of "Little Dreamer" is all I can recall for our third round of drinks. Oh, I almost forgot about that Guy Fieri wanna be running around starving for attention. I remember this fool from the last TNT Chicago show I finished last month and I am beginning to think that this dude lives under a rock around here. What a fucking joke! "He's a poser," said Dee Milenkovic as we both pointed and laughed his stupid hair and him wearing those doltish sunglasses at night time.
