What's up my friends!!

Just got back from The Cochella festival.
Had an amazing time.
I rented a huge RV
Motorhome and parked directly behind the stage.
It was crazy hot in the desert, so luckily
I had airconditioning.
Had plenty of drinks and food for all my friends that came by.
I was so busy being a host I didn't get to see enough music.
Did see a new band Wolfmother, The Ya Ya Ya's and The Eagles of Death Metal.
But missed Tool and Depeche Mode
Which I'm kind of bummed about.
I heard Tool were insane.
Great time overall though.
Gettin back to work with the band on Monday to go through some songs.
Can't wait to get started.
Take care everyone!!

Love,
Matt

Oh my God,

Just got back from Magic Mountain.
Private party
Only 2500 at the park.
It was crazy, I was like a kid running from ride to ride.
My favorite was Scream and X treme
But made Goliath and Viper as well as Batman and more.
There was really no lines because a lot of Hollywood party people were there and into hanging at the Bar.
Not me, it was the best.
Also this Saturday
I will be hosting Camp Freddy Radio with special guest Slash
From 6pm To 8pm
Pacific time.
You can tune in at indie1031.com for internet feed.

Enjoy,

Hello Everyone,

Just getting back from Boston. Took three winners of the Zildjian contest that we started last year when I was on tour.
I took them on a tour of the factory.
Zildjian makes my cymbals and I have been an endorser for 18 yrs now.
After the tour I helped them pick out
8 free cymbals to take home. Each drummer was different in styles and needed there own
Sound.
So it took time.
I arrived at 830am
Which is pretty early
For me.
It was more like 530am L.A. Time
I finally left at around 400pm
So it was a long day
But I think everyone was very happy.
Had dinner on the water with The Zildjian family.
Had Lobster and Boston Clam Chowder
Amazing!!
Anyway home for a minute.
In the studio with VR
All next week.
Pro-production!!!!!

Keep U up to date,

Matt

Going to work in my studio for another couple of weeks.

Then back in the studio to complete the album.
Hope some of you have been listening to Camp Freddy radio.
I have been doing it the last month or so.

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to say sorry for not being on The Sorum Forum in awhile.
Went out on the road for a few shows.
We have been working on writing the Album most of the summer and needed to get out.
It was fun, short but enough to inspire us to get the live feel again.
We had been working in my studio but are now
In a live rehearsal space.
Coming up with some great jams.
I am sorry we didn't play any new material on the 5 dates that we did play.
The Band wants the new stuff to be the best it can be before we let it out.
Anyway plan on writing all of Sept and part of October then in the studio.
That is the plan, so if it takes a little longer trust me it will be worth the wait.
This album is going to Rock.
Thank you all for your patience!!!!

Matt

Did some rock climbing, hiking , waterskiing, rented a sailboat, Went to a Ben Harper concert and all around had a great time. Back to work this week. Want to get this album done and get back on tour to rock for all you beautiful people.
