Quiet Riot Alienate Fans and Friends in and Attempt to Cover Wrong Doings to Now Fired Singer Mark Huff

Quiet Riot Alienate Fans and Friends in and Attempt to Cover Wrong Doings to Now Fired Singer Mark Huff

Jan 13, 2012

After my article yesterday on Mark Huff, the now former Quiet Riot singer, fired as he sat in his hospital room having his head shaved for brain surgery; there was a mass pouring of emotions across the internet from fans and friends of Mark Huff. People asking for their money back for tickets they had purchased, and saying they only wanted to go to see Mark, among the many other outcries of anger over his wrong doing. Quiet Riot eventually released a half cocked statement, saying they sent Mark a certified letter and making insinuations that Mark may be lying about being in the hospital. From QR Facebook page: “With regards to Mark Huff: My policy has always been not to air out the dirty laundry in public. That policy remains the same even in light of those who chose to make accusations. The fact is that Mr. Huff’s medical condition had nothing to do with the decision that was made though it is unfortunate that it comes at such a time. His wife assured me that Mark would be home this week, and as legal protocol dictated, a certified letter was sent informing Mark of the decision that was made and why it was made. This was days ago. The content of that letter is a private matter unless Mr. Huff decides to make the reason for his dismissal made public which I believe would be counterproductive for him. I will not go tit for tat with this issue. If certain person wish to villainies me, that is their prerogative.” This statement from the band sent out a rash of angry protests from friends and fans alike, I myself as the writer of the original article that soared the web, ended up in a conversation on MY Facebook page with a certain drummers girlfriend, whom insisted that a certified letter had been sent by them to Mark Huff, and that Mark was lying, which only lit my fuse because I KNOW for a fact that Mark is not lying. After said “girlfriend”, invaded my Facebook, myself and fans started noticing they were deleting any post on their page with the truth and only...

Atlanta Musician Steven Marchi Missing for 15 Days!

Atlanta Musician Steven Marchi Missing for 15 Days!

Aug 29, 2011

Written by Duffie Dixon of 11 Alive Friends of a missing local musician are asking for the public’s help in locating him. 43-year-old Steven Marchi was last seen the night of August 12, 2011. His roomate Jeffrey Powell said Marchi left the apartment in in his green Dodge pickup that has a camper top and an Illinois license plate. Powell assumed he’d see Marchi in a few hours, but he and others have not seen or heard from Marchi since. “I didn’t think too much of it at first. I mean he’s a grown man and I thought he may have just been staying with a friend, but then I realized he left without his phone or his guitar,” said Powell. Other friends confirm Marchi is an avid musician and goes everywhere with his guitar and sheet music. Kelley Hagen said that’s what has her convinced something bad has happened to Marchi. “Anyone who knows him knows he is not without his guitar for more than a few hours. He’s also not someone who would leave a roomate without paying the rent or explaining if he was headed out of town,” said Hagen. In fact, Powell said Marchi is always prompt with his weekly rent. Powell is also convinced Marchi planned to be around for the coming week based on what he found in the refrigerator. Marchi, a strict vegan, had just purchased and cut up various produce and put it in containers for a week’s worth of meals. “There’s no way he would buy all of that, take all that time preparing it if he was headed out of town,” said Powell. Marchi has performed at a number of venues around Atlanta including Smith’s Old Bar, Eddie’s Attic and the Red Light Cafe. He was saving up money to pay for the release of a CD. Between gigs Marchi worked as a masseur, so friends worry he may have gone to a client’s house and something bad happened to him. “I just know he would have contacted one of us, any of us, by now,” said Hagen. Police have assigned a case number in the search for Steven Marchi. Friends say the only...

The Love-Gov. Very Funny

Jun 3, 2011

OK I just watched a brief synopsis of the Schwarzenegger/Shriver/what’s-her-name fiasco. So let me get this straight. A man of means sees a woman with large breasts and creates a love child with her. How refreshing. How original. How new-millenium. Please. So Arnold Schwarzenegger is a man. What a shock. I had a great conversation with two bright women  in the nail salon today, of all places. They had asked me about my FOOD FOR THOUGHT column in the Gwinnett Daily Post, and I answered them honestly. Why the column? Because women need a place to talk. Men, you know it’s true, so stop rolling your eyes. You should thank me. Look how much time and anguish I can potentially spare you if you play your cards right.   OK back to Arnold. I don’t know whether you buy into the “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” mentality, but I have to admit, I tend to agree with it. Let me translate that title for you. Men are motivated by completely different factors than are women.  A freakishly large bra size can potentially mean love at first sight to a man. To a woman, it means cosmetic surgery or a shallow gene pool, possibly both.  Venus and Mars, honey.   All right so let’s look at what we have in front of us. We have an illegitimate 13-year-old-boy  who is already more privileged than most children across the globe could ever imagine. We have a kept woman, thanks to her chest measurements.  Spare me your justifications.  How much conversation could there have possibly  been? If any, I don’t want the details.   I just saw on “E” that the mistress is so obsessed with “being” Maria Shriver that she wore her clothes.  Is that right? I’m trying to imagine how  many scientists and seamstresses that would have required.   Oh well.  Another day, another tough lesson learned. Women, you can be as bright and capable as anyone else on the planet. My advice to you is to line up a really good cosmetic surgeon if you really want to make your mark on the political world.  Men, well, try to be discreet....

Somewhere between the Far Side and the right side of every issue, sits A.F. Branco at his desk, crafting Comically Incorrect. After years of listening to the squeaky wheel of the left (or the worst wheel of the cart, as Benjamin Franklin put it) advance the cause of radicalism, he decided that he would use the power of his bully palette to advance the conservative movement. The art and humor of the political cartoon has, since the dawn of the Republic, been a way to sway those who might not otherwise be persuaded.

Joseph “Red Dog” Campbell Passes. The Road Most Certainly Goes on Forever.

Feb 21, 2011

My cell phone started going off tonight with multiple calls from Macon, and as I stired from a nap, I turned on my computer to find an email from a friend telling me that Red Dog passed at home with family and loved ones around him in peace at 7 PM tonight. Joseph will be well missed by many, but he is no longer in pain suffering from cancer and is with Duane Allman again. Red Dog was a roadie for The Allman Brothers Band for over thirty years.

Team Bold Spicy is so happy to welcome Nationally Recognized Dr. Jennifer Hartstein, the psychological contributor for CBS’ The Early Show, a national morning news program.   Harry Smith and his morning- anchor crew frequently rely on ‘Dr. Jen’ to help make sense of all of the current stories through her Psychological Brilliance.  Here is an example from her Blog, complete with the corresponding video appearance and ‘Dr. Jen’s’ unbelievable resume below. Dr. Jen, you are Bold and Spicy!  See you on CBS’ The Early Show on Christmas Morning! Stormy Weather Heidi Jones, a NYC-based meteorologist, admitted to fabricating a story regarding an alleged rape at the hands of a Latino man in Central Park this week, and is now facing misdemeanor charges and possibly a year in jail for creating a false report.  I was on The Early Show with Jack Ford talking with Harry Smith about the story and why a woman, who seemingly had a lot going for her would end up in this situation. According to reports, Ms. Jones reported that she was having some relationship troubles and acted in this manner to elicit sympathy and support.  Seems like a lot to go through to gain sympathy, no?  Many people are saying so.  Clearly, Ms. Jones is experiencing a great deal of difficulty in her life and lacks the ability to cope effectively with whatever problems she is having.  There are many hypotheses we could make regarding this, and only Ms. Jones knows the truth about why she acted in the  manner that she did.  Her emotions clearly got the better of her, impacting her judgment and creating more difficulty than she could have ever imagined. One of the reasons cited for questioning Ms. Jones is the length of time she took to report the incident.  Many victims do not report assaults right away.  A client of mine waited 10 months before telling anyone that she was raped.  The delay in reporting does not indicate that the incident did not happen.  Many victims have difficulty acknowledging what occurred due to fear, disbelief, frustration, anger, worry that they won’t be believed, and many other reasons.  An individual’s story cannot be discounted just because...
