29 Years of DJing

September 21, 2013

then_now

Then and Now… repping Prince since I first started deejaying in 1984.

Throughout my life, through the good and the bad – music has always been there for me. For this I am grateful. I was always shy around girls and I couldn’t dance – but when you start to dj some things change in your life. Well, not everything because I’m still shy around beautiful women and I still can’t dance – but I can play music like a mutha f*cka! DJing was a hobby that became a profession for me and this is not a career for the weak minded. There are no sick days, no paid vacation time, no steady paycheck every two weeks, no retirement plan. You hustle, or you don’t work. I would like to thank everyone that has helped me or inspired me over the years. I even want to thank the haters, because you made me stronger. I’ve seen peers drop out of djing for various reasons over the years, people that I admired and always wished would return to the field. But I understand why they left, it’s a grind and like the other three elements of hip-hop (rapping, graffiti, breaking) you’re always paying dues. Doesn’t matter if you’ve been doing it 10, 15, 20+ years… you always have to pay dues and it’s not easy. Are there things I wish I had done differently over the years – absolutely. Would I have still been a DJ – no doubt about it. I am me, and I am a DJ.

Thank you Red Devil Lounge and the city of San Francisco. Lots of people came out for the Prince and MJ party on 9/14, including a few purple lifers. To the woman who thought it was gonna be a karaoke sing off… I have no idea how you came to that assumption. But that could be a fun night at a karaoke bar. Hmmmm. To the woman who made a song request for We Are Family after the night had ended. One, the party was over and two – Sister Sledge has nothing to do w Prince or Michael Jackson. Good song, wrong party. Best moment of the night: Bobby picks up some cash on the dance floor and hands it to the woman dancing next to it, she pulls out her blouse to check the money in her bra. Photos from the party are here.

Signed Album

So check this out. About 8 or 9 years ago I bought a used copy of the Elegantly Wasted cd by INXS for $10.99 at a music store. I noticed today that it wasn’t in my iTunes so I pulled it out to load up. I noticed there’s writing all over the booklet. Could these be autographs from band members? Looks like it.

House of Pain

House of Pain 1992 – yes, that’s a Bomb t-shirt that Everlast is wearing. You can also spot Chuck D from PE wearing a Bomb t-shirt on one of their 12″ singles and an album. Maybe I’ll do another run of shirts someday.
