Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, motorcycles, downhill skiing, fly fishing (poorly), dogs, and sushi. That’s about it. I get yelled at at least once a month to remove something from Twitter by my boss and I’m a huge soccer fan, even trying out for an MLS team one time. I’ve never seen The Godfather.

1st thing, what kind of dude gets invited to a rock stars birthday and then takes video and puts it on Youtube. Total douche move. If he knew Jerry Cantrell so well he wouldn’t get a picture with him. Ugg. This dude is throwing gang signs while singing to his phone. It’s so cringeworthy I can hardly watch. He also keeps checking out girls’ butts when they aren’t looking. What a creepo.
Yet, he’s hanging at Jerry Cantrell’s house and I’m not so maybe I’m just jealous. I think this dude is a real estate agent and claimed to be a 1 time manager for Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) so maybe he sold Jerry his home. He tells more of his story here.
I actually met Jerry once, he did a record siging at a local record store on the East Coast when his solo album “Degradation Trip” came out in 2002. He was quiet, shook my hand & smelled like beer. It was midnight. I was kind of dissapointed then thought, “Who the f am I? This guy probably did heroin with Kurt Cobain and I’m going to judge him for having a beer at midnight? I got over it.
2nd thing is all the cameos including Eddie Van Halen’s guitar that was personally given to Jerry. (see around 38:00 in this video for the story) I spotted Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Kato Kaelon, Mark Boone Junior (Sons of Anarchy), Jim Jefferies (comedian), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses bassist), Glen Danzig, Rob Trujillo (Metallica bassist), Sean Kinney (Alice in Chains drummer), Lzzy Hale (Halestorm, I think it’s her but not 100% sure), Robbie Krieger (The Doors guitarist), and Gilby Clark (Guns N’ Roses guitarist).
