Word From The Murderdolls HQ

Greetings Ghouls and Germs!
Starting Sept 23rd, I'm going to be doing a series of DJ dates and guitar clinics in the UK. The club nights are put together by the folks at Kerrang! magazine, the Guitar clinics by Hughes and Kettner. At the Club Kerrang! nights expect special guests, giveaways and tons of debauchery. If there is any less decadence than there was at the Kerrang! Awards aftershow party I will be thoroughly disappointed with the Kerrang! readers and our Ghoulscouts!! Kerrang! is giving you a night to go fucking nuts so take advantage of it. I certainly will!
'Do Your Own Damn Clinic, Clinic' is brought to you by the ghouls at Hughes and Kettner. Here is the deal: Normally a guitar clinic is some amazing shredder guy doing scales you can't even pronounce, let alone play. I'm here to show you that it doesn't have to be that difficult. How? Well, you're going to do the clinic with me, thats how! I'll go over a few of the things that I have learnt, the gear I use and how to play 'White Wedding'. Then I'm going to invite anyone up to play 'White Wedding' with me. “Dont worry, they can't fuck it up any more than we do,” laughed Joey when I told him about the idea. We also plan on giving a ton of stuff away at the clinics too. We have always been a very DIY band and always interacted with our fans on a personal level, so yeah, you get a chance to play a Murderdolls song with a Murderdoll! You don't know how much I'm looking forward to seeing all the Ghoulscouts from all the various UK troops. If these things go well we may add some more in November, in and outside of the UK. Oh yeah...and on behalf of the whole band, a massive “Thanks!” to everyone who voted for us in the Kerrang! Awards. You rule!!
