MVP twice ice but for how he transcended the game with the way cared himself around teammates media and most importantly fans. That's one of the many reasons he was named. Walter Payton Man of the year on on the field and in the community he was a champion. He was also a true competitor and held himself to the highest standard in everything he did. We know he'll carry that same spirit with with him into the future. I got the same statement sent to me from the NFL network Assignment desk you missed one line at the end. Can I read it.

"I mean when it took off and then we're charting with like Van Halen and we're charting with yes and we're charging with you know all these these bands. Yeah you know and Jimmy Page Robert Plant. We're charting with them. We're just like oh my gosh. We had a number one song Japan. We had a number ten song Japan. The twenty three minute song was a number ten song Hit in Japan at one time. WHO's in a plane as the Japanese market is so different? And I've got got stories about that too. I've got stories about every continent and how embracing the fans are even to this day and I know I'm jumping ahead but I mean the prog rock community on a global sense. Yeah is unbelievable. They're very intellectual. They're very deep. The prog rock fans there write you letters of before the Internet they physically wrote US letters to our Po box. And you'd get piles and piles of letters that are just page after page after page and I've got them all. It's just amazing and they'd send you pictures and they'd send you coffee mugs and They send All kinds of stuff memorabilia memorabilia from their hometown and they wanNA share stuff with you. Because you know you're sharing your young man that was really mind blowing. You know the fan community and then you know that was slightly before the Internet and then the second album came out. The Internet was the second came out in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight so the Internet was kicking by. Then yeah you it was just coming on but there but there was a lot of uncertainty as far as what the role that the Internet was playing When believes Zik? I mean if you're talking ninety eight that's right. What about the time that Napster started coming was on and we were on Napster and people overtaken our music? Of course you feel. At the time I felt like people were still in our music. F- yeah because the again it. There was no download at the time there was napster but there was no ninety nine cents apple download or anything we're selling got caught up with the demand of the and even in Korea. They even printed the album so I mean they're still selling albums cassettes and CDs of the music at this time We wanted wanted the CDs But they printed cassettes. And you know CDs and some albums But you know again Metallica came to the rescue. Yeah with Lars going against Napster and You know from that point on. Change the rules and the rules kept changing Gina stuff. So you know. We were disappointed. That people were still especially when we found every single one of our songs at that time we hadn't done three albums or the tribute tributes at that time but the first two records we found all our stuff on napster. You know maybe down and that's just because everything was on find pretty much anything announced her it was it. It was just a symptom of the fact that the music industry was slow to recognize that it needed to do something about offering its music. Online people fill the gap for better for worse it created where we are. Now how do you feel about where we are now. As far as screaming being so dominant people are not buying culture as much as it is a subscription culture so now around music like how does that embraced it and absolutely love it Yeah it's so accessible and you can just make stuff right now and put it out there I I I love it look I. It's it's okay that the record company took all our money. I forgive. Forgive them you know I I got something out of it man. I got this worldwide community. Yeah I got all these people that still to this day this week email. Tell me a comment and and collaborate has stuff you know so I've embraced it and Is Really Awesome. I I love where it is. I mean to to be able to stream four K.. Video Saudi our house ten eighty p out of your house With super good twenty. Four bit audio. Oh At thirty frames a second or sixty frames a second or the film looked twenty. Four frames a second. Yeah in real time. Are you kidding me. It's a dream name. That is a really crazy that the level of democratization around creativity on online is is unbelievable. And something that I've really on a personal level enjoyed from about the early two thousands late ninety nineties actually just the ability for anyone to be able to go online and be creative. Be Music with the music tools that we have the video. I mean everything has moved things that used to require so much money and a team of people all are now accessible to anyone so unbelievable and you know you can create an album create a movie and you really don't need a whole lot to do it now. We've got our phones. We can't even do that. Yeah and and I do. Yeah right other house. You know Albums videos great. So you know again embracing using technology yeah embracing technology and loving and going with I was a little slow. I held onto my cassette for a long time. You know when that technology sorry. Sorry coming along so I didn't jump right onto CD's. But once I did I was like oh CDs are awesome right. You know. So everything takes awhile dice comfort- comfortable with it. Yeah in truly understand it. POST-CAIRO SO Cairo. I guess talk about how Cairo kind of winds down. Because because I think the singer something happened with a singer like what happened there down before something happened with the singer in two thousand as an one we were. We were Going to do four albums but we just couldn't get our money from their accurate label so here it is the third third album and every time you do an album right when you start to make money. They roll that money into the next album. Save say you're making money but it's time to no other album we're GONNA at advance you some more money and we're gonNA roll the money over into the next album. And then once that Alma start selling and we catch up again then we'll pay you. We're like okay. We'll do another album. The advanced us the money. We're in our own studio. We're having a blast. We're making a new album believing what they're gonNA say. We're GONNA make money someday so by the time the third album comes out and it it's again really popular popular in its worldwide. You can find it anywhere okay. there's no money you know there's like you know and it's everywhere and we're seeing sound on scans of selling thousands if not hundreds of thousands of albums you know and We're in all the magazines or charting. Gene we're getting dozens of comments dozens of emails and dozens of letters. And we're doing magazine interviews and and our stuff is charting and all that kind of stuff and there's still not enough still not enough. There's just no money you know so it makes it really hard to survive. Which is why I always had filmmaking going so we we hardin attorney a really good attorney by the name of Glen Miskel who was known at the time pursuing record labels that didn't pay musicians in fact he Ainsley Dunbar was the first Drummer journey and and he was replaced by Steve Smith and journey. Didn't according to what I heard I didn't pay Ainsley all his royalties. So Glenn Miskel went after journey and and won the case and you know got Ainsley as money and all that we thought. Yeah that's the guy we want so he Got Well first of all we discovered how hidden the money was and how many distributors were. He was like this needs to be a class action suit. Let's get all the band together. And so he started calling bands and then the the paper trail all started you know with all the distributors any realize what a mess it was is like. Oh my gosh. And by that time he'd run up a twenty thousand dollar bill with us and then he comes to us you he says well there's too many distributors it. It's too hard to find your money. They're really crafty on what they did. you only twenty thousand. I'm I'm just going to. We're going to call it even. I can't. I can't find your money for you. It's it's too distributed it's too hidden They're very very crafty on on what they're doing and so he said I'm just going to. We're just GONNA call it even But what I will do is I can write you a contract contract to get out of your fourth option and I'll get a hold the record label and see if they're willing to bet so we said yeah. Let's do that because if you can't get our money for us we're not gonNA. Why would we do another album? Yes yea totally the same story that every band tells on. Vh One he is the same story so you know. We're kind of aware of it because it's because it's how the industry operates sandwich and we didn't get pissed off. We're just like hair. Music is out there. You know we brought in specially in the I embrace. I'm happy that I got a record. Oh you kidding me. There's a lifelong dream so I'm really only happy. The music out there so he did he got us out of our fourth option And about that time was when I created virtual live. Show which we're GONNA get into a minute. Let's yeah let's get right into that. You know moving forward as we are writing new material because we're definitely going to put out another Cairo stuff. Are Singer got really Sega. A sick with pancreatic cancer in twenty twelve and bless his heart. He passed away So oh he has been a really hard hard moment. Roman extremely hard everything I mean at one time the record label called me at three in the morning and said do you realize you have the best progressive rock singer in the world right now because we're in all these magazines when we got all this airplane going on every continent and you know and people are really responding in such a positive five five star way You know the regular you know when you're there pat. You're their pets and their call you at three in the morning and they'll take you to dinner and everything's cool. Yeah and so you know. Brentwood sued unbelievably talented unbelievably. A good keyboard player Drummer Guitar Player You know he had a music degree and just unbelievably talented. I perfect pitch. You could give him a song idea he just walk up to the piano and start playing it in the perfect. He starts singing and He had such a great vocal range which is very apparent on all the Cairo. Absolutely he's gone quite the range unbelievable range and unbelievably good pitch and tone own. You know So bless his heart Brent was a great guy but you know so that kind of ended it. I mean for us. There wouldn't really be another Cairo without breath however the fans. I just want us to the fans every week. I get a letter or a comment on Youtube video. Winds are going to be another Cairo. Some people don't know the British passed away and the ones that. Do you still want us to go forward so what I did to move for was I created something called virtual live show so that I could perform the music of Cairo Arrow. Live and I was. I remixed all three Cairo albums and I took the drums out. I remixed them so they sound live because you you were the the writer of of of of much of this museum near on all three albums last year. So you've got the masters do that. I was Mark Roberson I. We're producer so I was a co producer with him but I was the main engineer on all of the Cairo albums and I missed all of them and I recorded everybody And that's A. That's a huge task. But that's what I did you know because I'm I'm the one that's into technology. In fact I did all the Mark Robertson's nitty work. When he came to the studio I would hook all this stuff up? I'd make all keyboards work this matrix and all that stuff you know Kinda like Voodoo but I had all the computers. I add everything so you know again. In you know. Being at twit technology company I was always into technology so I was the one that was doing all the technology for the band. So I was the engineer On all the records and even the tribute albums and all that So so what exactly is the virtual live show like this is an and I ask because I know because I you showed it to me. You gave me actually..

"Very complex though this. is you drumming right here. You're on your on your setup. Toronto GonNa talk about Your virtual live students setup but I mean the music of Cairo that I that I've checked out dove into is just so incredibly complex so when I when I listened and watched I was like literally blown away by your your craftsmanship your ability to play a drums at just as amazingly as as you do in these videos Just the complexity of the the melodic material and all this was basically basically written in the start by you and then translated over to the members of your band ultimately exactly. Yeah so I came up with a bunch of songs and actually I composed at all on Midi keyboards. I really got into Midi. Yeah I I completely understood it and how it worked and I embraced it and I had midi the sequencers Midi drum machines and all kinds of Midi keyboards. I just started writing I. I was always a drummer in a band. Okay and One year I just got tired being the drummer because nobody considered the Writer as true. Yeah although I will say from my own experience in bands. It was always hard to find a drummer. So drummers were were definitely definitely needed but then because I don't know if it's literally because the drums are usually in the back of the stage behind every everybody else in the front but then the drums are kind of like they're there but the drummer doesn't get as much of the attention there the clock supposed to just be quiet near the clock. Look I I'm into melody and stuff that came from my early childhood. My parents always had music playing in the House and the melodies always in my head and always wanted to compose an I could pick up guitars and just naturally play and then I'd sit down in front of piano so I could figure out notes and you had an ear for music. Yeah I took my tax return one year and I bought a sequencer or drum machine and keyboard not just from that point and I just started is within the first two weeks. I had a couple of songs. I had those on a four track cassette recorder because again no doubt multi-track foss just text multi-track cassette recorder task. Out so I don't know I remember them as well but I don't know if one was an upgrade or down. Yeah they were trying to figure out technology to help us out but it was neat that you could take this like consumer cassette player and put four tracks on it and I mean as long always you knew how to balance from one track to another all the material on three tracks move it onto one. I mean if you're really creative with it could do some really interesting much more than four track material. And that's what I had to do. I mean you know the the Beatles today in the sixty s absolutely buddy said this as technology grows you know and all that but yeah. That's what I did and so I just start writing a bunch inches songs and then I I had a student from past and and I set my keyboards up and I had my drums air and I'd ride home and then about four o'clock in the afternoon I'd go the studio set it off and I'd start playing to the south and I worked out all these songs where I do all the rhythm all the lead parts all the digital base the keyboard bass and I and when I do it I'd always lay down a click track because I played click track progressive. Rock has a Lotta time changes tons. Yeah and It's like a minefield. Sometimes listening to it you know and You never really know which direction is going to go. It's it's like it's symphonic. Kind of reminds me of like classical music piece but much much heavier much harder With an edge. And you just don't. I don't really know where it's GonNa go where those times signatures are going to go. Which gives me immense respect for anyone who's capable of of following along with that doing all the mental math gymnastics? This required wired to keep me prog. Rock is drummers dream. Yeah play around and I was in a lot of bands where guitar players hated me. I played around too much playing straight wrestle. Rock have fun too so once I figured out how to do it I never looked back. Yeah and and I just kept doing it and kept writing songs and so forth and Trying to find band members they could play it and Cairo actually was formed by me and I had had all the songs all that and I was doing some always doing videos. That's how I made money so I was doing some videos for a record company. I did some instructional videos. I did instructional actual video with Dean Castro Novo. Who is the drummer of journey? Okay and it's called high performance drumming and that was through shrapnel records Mike Varney shrapnel records and it was distributed through a d. c.. I in New York and you know was did really good and then I did another one for a guitar player by the name of Tony macalpine. Again through shrapnel records records and shopping records is huge. Mike Varney found all the best guitar player in the world. So you know really great in that anyway And at this point are they they're recognizing Like the people that you're working with their recognizing the level the ability that you have on the drums as well right like they did. They did absolutely because you know. Hey I'm working with a reccomend. Doing some videos him musician to you. Got To take the stuff. Yeah and so he did you know and he thought it was good and so I just kept doing it and he says Hey i Mike Varney said hey I know a guy who's just getting tour keyboardist is classically. Trained I need to introduce them to you. That'd be really cool. So that's how Cairo formed. I Mike Varney dinner to mark Robertson. Who is a classic trained a piano player player since player and the whole thing and went to the conservatory as a nine foot? Grocery and COMP- Piano Hammond C. Three Hamid. Be Three Leslie Spending Thinning Speaker sole thing mini Moog synthesizers. I mean the guy is the real deal. His idol was Keith. Emerson of Emerson they can Palmer. Who is one of my favorite prog bands of all time You know just amazing. So when Mike Varney introduced me to mark Robinson brought him over to the studio I had all my keyboard setup. I started showing him songs. He's like. Wow a drummer can write songs. And so for the first month I was just showing my songs in front of my keyboard keyboards and he was like playing along with it or playing along with finally one day. Says you know Brockman once you get behind the drums. I I think I got it and then when I got behind the drums I saw what the guy could really do. And he's like left hand over here right hand over here. He's turned himself into to people and he's just going crazy. I'm just going. Oh my God this is the real deal today so then I could just give him anything I wrote. He would go home. Take my compositions and just tournament a little masterpieces. And then we'd work on the parts and he'll say I really like this part but I think this should better as a As a bridge instead of course our vice versa. And then we'd work work it out and Real easy to work with and I really appreciated that. He gave me the time in patients. Beams how that he went to the conservatory. You know I I trained. I taught myself Keyboards and guitar. And all that I did take drum lessons starting in fourth grade drama. And all that so I can read all the rudimentary snare. Stuff you know was was that you're kind of injured like official introduction Introduction as a child to music or like where did that kind of well the introduction was my dad Always had music playing in the house and he loved her Albert in the Tijuana brass. Okay and so you had that plane all the time and He turned me onto the albums and I would listen to it and they had so much melody and my parents were very young when they had me so they you know. They had parties parties and friends over south so the music's always playing even when I'm sleep in the music planet was just instilled in my brain and You know so. That's really where it began and that was the third fourth grade. My Dad was a air force fighter pilot so He played guitar and he always had an eight Miller. Miller eight millimeter movie camera era. And so that's what inspired me for music and film was my dad always had music going anti had a camera going all the ground and then what blew. My mind is sixth. Grade is he handed me a stack of ventures records and the ventures are all. They're called Surf Rock. Yep but it's all guitar stuff and they took Theme Songs like Hawaii Five O and they do their version of it or the song wipe out they do their version of it. And you know they're very very popular and once I heard guitar in in Sixth Grade I went. Oh my gosh. I still wanted to be a drummer but I wanted to play with guitar players. you know So do you WANNA brass was gone and guitars were in absolutely and I mean as ventures like being the kind of view of the idol to learn from. That's that's a pretty great starting with their so. They were so creative. Yeah in their time and so in such an enjoyable band to listen to. I've always really liked the ventures. What about what about technology like from a young age like You you have demonstrated over the years you're affinity and your ability to understand technology and working with Midi isn't the most complicated thing in the world but it is especially when you're first exposed to it it becomes easier the more you work with it but in the beginning it's kind of like what the heck is going on here so you had to have some sort of exposure or desire to to work with technology. Where did that come from? Yeah well it came from when I saw a friend of mine's son had a computer in the living room playing a game and I said what's that was commodore sixty four That's that's my That's that's the top list. Yeah and I was like wow. It's engineer house now. You know I saw that and I thought This is really cool. So I started seeking out again. There was no internet so you had to get some magazines you know now and go to a store and then this really cool invention came out. It was called the AMIGA computer. Oh you got in on the AMIGA got in on the. They always WanNa win those but I never was able to. That was the beginning of technology and I had to wait and wait and wait till technology was invented and I went all its. It's invented for me. This is why I had to wait so long because once I got that Amiga computer and realize what you could do with it All kinds of video and audio stuff I was Gonna say. Yeah the AMIGA. If if I remember correctly it was really a a really good early system to be compatible with things like Midi and driving the sequencer box. A four thousand ninety six color capability and their colors. I know and then there's all kinds of never need any more than four thousand dollars. That's what they thought and of course course it was all a bit now. Everything's eight bit and You know you wait for frame to render. You'd go to lunch. Yeah you know. Come back in the frame one frame almost done on rendering judgemental. I can't wait. I guess we leave this going overnight. We might have seconds worth of video. The AMIGA one thousand came with a mega half of Ram. Okay and when I got another half a megabyte had two megabytes is like wow. This is amazing and then when I got seven megabytes I just thought it was all I need. You know because because I mean the Apollo landed on the Moon with five twelve k seven megabytes..

"See you're still dealing with those taste. But the machines and the invention was really the technology was really cool. I mean it was amazing. It was neat cut and the the thing is to then you could start sending these digital tapes out to people so you know pre Internet but now you could send tapes out because you know you couldn't send two inch tapes around. You know I mean no it Eh. Yeah really hard. I mean really easy to put a Fedex box and send US somebody they could record their tracks. Clone it because it's digital so you just make a clone doubt send that back to a studio and they'd mix it and we did that a lot on various projects but now this is super random. Totally out of nowhere. But I remember back in the day. When CDs started started coming on the scene the the rumor was that if you took a green sharpy to the edge of the CD it would improve the fidelity of the CD which is totally ridiculous? I heard that one. Okay good good good. Then you pass the test I did and I fell for it. I remember by first. I batch of CDs like probably twelve or thirteen CDs but I I got a CD player. They all had green around the edges. I had heard that. That's what you do. Compact this to approve proved sound there. You go what what did I know other than what my friends were telling me. So I should say the band that you that that we're going to talk about and we'll get to it in a bit That you really spearheaded is a band called Cairo. Yes and folks in the progressive rock genre fans of The Progressive Rock are going to be familiar with this style. Music.

"Twentieth for December Twenty Seventh Twenty nineteen. Jeff Brockman. Its it's time for triangulation Jason Howell sitting in the hot seat today and I have to tell you like we. We talk a lot on the show with people who are movers. Shakers in the technologies fear. Today's guest is close to home. Yes in technology but possibly even more or in in something that I'm passionate about. That's music Guest today is Jeff Brockman sitting right next to me. Someone who I also happen to work with. It's awesome to have the ability to do this. Jeff is for for folks who aren't aware or maybe our jeff works behind the scenes. He's one of the engineers here started about six months ago. Ish right around there may twenty-eighth okay And came to the studio radio with a large pedigree in the music industry which I think I was aware of was definitely aware of over the past months but I can tell a conversation that you and I had very recently. I hadn't been truly aware of the depth to which you were ingrained in the music industry in the nineties and beyond and when I started checking out your music and checking out everything that you were involved with I was like holy cow. This guy is like ridiculously obviously talented at amazing on top of being just a really nice warm being presence to be around You're just really talented your drummer and we're GonNa talk all about all about your music experience. Also how that kind of intertwines with technology because as you know as everyone knows awesome technology network it's technology podcast triangulation But I think your perspective is unique because like we I could safely say that everybody has an association with music from very passive listener perspective. You've worked in that industry. You know how the machine as it were. Yes it's changed over the years it has so I'm really curious to kind of get your take on that. Because you've you've kind of you're there mid nineties and beyond so you were truly there in the era of CD. Yeah analyze an analog two inch tape yes exactly analog in the recording studios and watching it transition to where it is now. Everything's digital talking right before the show started. How music is just? It's I mean it's so much more of a commodity now like you can and it's everywhere and it's too easy. Almost instantaneous. Yeah like Google find my song. What like how do you feel about that? Like I know for for myself. I loved back in the day walking into a record store or music store and not knowing what I was gonNA walk out with and then when I did you you know I only had enough money to buy one CD or one tape or whatever and like that was my precious. I listened to that on repeat forever and ever and ever what my same same thing. Yeah I would Go to warehouse records tower records. And I'd go through there and I'd see these nice big album covers and I'd see something interesting I never heard of if like for example. UFO The ban. Before I go wow that sounds cool. UFO YOU and according to my car and it's just awesome amazing and yeah. That's how I used to discover music. Music store going through the files are seeing the posters on the wall there was no internet. You know And then also FM radio. So if I'm radio you no you always discover stuff on that and search it out but yeah the transition changed. The transition from analogue to digital was a process because it went to digital digital tape. I so you're still using tape. You know so when it started transitioning We were using digital tape that you know and transition to that and they had had this magic thing called the Estedat And that recorded each estedat machine would record a tracks of digital audio and you could link up to sixteen ecksteen machines together for one hundred twenty eight tracks of digital audio and then you had a thing called the B. R. C. Big Remote Control and that would synchronize all sixteen aid ads. And you'd you'd have one hundred twenty eight tracks and going into your mixing board and mixing so at it worked flawlessly every single time right. I see you're still dealing with those taste. But the machines and the invention was really the technology was really cool. I mean it.

"So, and that the Phoenix and you can see some of the effects right there. There's the AMIGA. One thousand those are affects. That were just done in the little jittery. Yeah, and any other colorizing and I mean yeah so many videos of this. I would say of these genres and this era looked like like this is. This is very much part of the time. Even, if it was video like everything was moving towards video video was not as sharp or as Pristine as film film always had this kind of like premium kind of feel to it. Because we're so conditioned around film being something you'd see in a movie theater. Whatever so video came along. It had this kind of sharp edge to it, but everybody was doing. It was the lower cost option, and it was just more accessible, and it had its own aesthetic, and you were like firmly in on that aesthetics. Ripe on MTV at the at the time I was very aware of the film look because I shot and film prior to video, and has a very unique distinct looks so video with shocking, so it was really great to use the effects because it looked more filming. Yeah, when you're using the effects, and then and there's the AMIGA effects right? That's perfect right there and and those. So they're they are running through. The thing and people wanted that. Requested. Future man and they wanted the real thick haze and smoke, and they wanted those facts and yeah, that is the future of wow, you've got it. Can you make me a video? I'm like you bet so I just oh, made all these videos for people, and they dammed up on MTV and it's awesome ironically enough. MTV had a couple of contests. I entered the MTV contests. one of the contest was the MTV basement tapes I entered it with the band I. Had at the time called the Jeff. Brockman project and it got in there, but. In their letter that they sent Baptist, we fared well so that was it. Thank you for entering the contest. You fared well. We got it on the letterhead, and we got it on the show and the whole that. was on the show, yeah! We thought you were neat, but yeah, quite on an episode, but you didn't go. Anywhere came down voters in south and again there was no iphones. He could tell all your phones to vote for you right? We went to one high school. Has Everybody voted for us? Yeah? But It was an international show. You know so high school then cut it. So how many bands were you doing at this time? Because the Jeff Project? Like how like what were the band's leading up to Cairo? My First Jan was when I was twelve years old, and I was the purple flame. And I was living in Japan We, we moved to Japan. My Dad was in the military then he flew for World Airways, so we lived over in Japan for years. My first band at age twelve was the purple flame and Everybody in Japan was a musician because we all lived on an air force base, and you know the kids need something to do so. They had hobbies centers than they. You know we played music. Yeah, yeah, so that band was purple flame back to the states going to high school purple flame flamed out slam down away flame. But I meant the. Awesome, Guitar Player, and we formed a band that was called. NITRO and there is a famous band called Nitro, but we were the original and the first nitro. Okay, and we played all over the bay area, and all the famous area clouds. mobu gardens keystone. The Stone San Francisco, opening opening for bands or Read or other bands a lot of other bands. We didn't open for any famous bands at that time, a bunch of punk bands and things like that, but the same guitar player and I formed another band after Nitro called tourists and tourist again played all around the bay area, but we did open for Metallica, San, Francisco stone, and that was really an awesome show. Like what era what? METALLICA wasn't headlining, so they were that we were the opening act. They were the Middle Act and a band called Raven. The headline all right and it's really cool because you can go to the METALLICA archive and you can see the ticket for that show on their website. So it's really cool, so it's probably like like early. Kill them all. For that maybe yeah, maybe even before that might have been A. Night for them because I think the next morning is the morning, they kick a certain guitar player out of the band. Yeah? Because I think we played the last show with Aguilar player, but I don't want to write history road south and I don't want to. Misrepresent what may have happened? State Yeah. Just saying okay I'll say it if you want Okay anyways, we'll see we'll. The history will will stand the test of time on that one, but that's that's an interesting nugget. The other knowing then sure that I had with MTV was MTV had another contest, and this one was open to producers and directors. Because I mentioned there was two contests, so I entered some. I shot for some of these bands like you saw, and I had two of them in the top ten and I won an all expense paid trip to the MTV video awards in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine in Los, Angeles California Universal Studios and you turned it down. No one's getting. That was when Paula Abdul. was Big Ben in won an award there and axl rose, was there was with his whole entourage. Crab! Twenty people falling them, do anything he wants you know and I was just saw. Wow, how did I get here? This is amazing. I can't believe it that is, so it was unbelievable, and I have the program. It's in mint condition in plastic and I did go online last night and I went on Ebay. And I said these things were saying money and somebody's actually song one for one hundred seventy nine dollars so. I'm going to. Seventy nine dollars. That was really cool and one of the videos that was in there slightly before Joe. Such Ronnie became really big out. He was playing guitar one of these videos on the track with a the guy that hired him to do it at the time. The video for so that was pretty cool anyway. That was my second experience with MTV. So and I actually got in there, so yeah, no kidding. Not many people have have the opportunity to do that. That's an amazing life experience to be able to between music and film. Like where do you're like at your heart at your core like it really sounds like your life, and we're GONNA. Talk about Kyron axe, but it really sounds like your life dances in both. In both on both sides I'm really glad you asked me that question because people have asked me that many times, and my answer is, and this is my standard answered I look at both of them as the same thing, I never separated film and sound I put them together and I look at his today. I'm doing film tomorrow. I'm going to the sound for it today. I'm doing the sound tomorrow I'm going to do the film for like one feeds the other until I just looked at. As this is what I do, film and sound in on so I never separated the two, and that was the magic of what I've been able to do this whole time. Now, it's really hard to make money in the music business extremely hard because you know when you get a record deal in south. There's a everybody's seen the movie yesterday. Recently I loved it..
"brockman" Discussed on Triangulation
"Yeah, so I came up with a bunch of songs, and actually I Composed at all on Midi keyboards, I really got into Midi. Yeah, I I, completely understood it, and how it worked and I embraced it and I had midi sequencer. Machines and all kinds of Midi. I just started writing. I I was always a drummer in a band. Okay and one year just got tired of being the drummer, because nobody considered the drummer writer as true. Yeah, although I will say from my own experience in bands. It was always hard to find a drummer, so drummers were were definitely needed, but then because I, don't know if it's literally because the drums are usually in the back of the stage behind every everybody else in the front, but then the drums are kind of like they're there, but the drummer doesn't get as much attention. They're the clock hours. Just be quiet near the clock. Look I'm into melody and stuff, and that came from early childhood. My parents always had music playing in the House and the melodies always in my head, and always wanted to compose an I could pick up guitars and just naturally play, and then I'd sit down in front of pianos I could figure out notes and. You had an ear for music. I took my tax return one year I bought a sequencer or drum machine and keyboard, not just from that point I just started is and within the first two weeks I had a couple of songs I had those on a four track cassette recorder because again, no doubt. multi-track Foss Tech multi-track Cassette recorder. Mine was task down. So I don't know techs. I remember them as well, but I don't know if one was an upgrade or downgrade. Yeah. They were trying to figure out technology to help us out, but it was neat that you could take this like consumer cassette player and put four tracks on it and I mean as long as you knew how to balance from one track to another. Take all material on three tracks. Move it onto one I mean if you're really creative with it could do some really interesting much more than four track material, and that's what I had to do i. mean you know the the Beatles to six? Yeah, absolutely buddy, that as technology grows, you know all that, but yeah, that's what I did, and so I just start writing. Writing a bunch of songs and then I I had a studio from past, and and I set my keyboards up. And I had my drums air and I'd ride home, and then about four o'clock in the afternoon I'd go to the studio. Set it up, and I'd start playing to the south and I worked out all these songs where I do all the rhythm, all the lead parts all the digital base, the keyboard, Bass, and I, and when I would do it, I'd always lay down a click track because I played. Click track progressive. Rock has a Lotta time changes tons. Yeah, and it's like a minefield. Listening to it, you know and you never really know which direction is going to go, it's it's like it's symphonic. Kind of reminds me of like classical music piece. But much much heavier much harder with an edge, and you just don't really know where it's GonNa go where those times signatures are going to go, which gives me immense respect for anyone who's capable of of following along with that doing all the mental math gymnastics. This required to keep me prog rock is drummers. Dream Yeah. Play around and I was in a lot of bands where. Guitar players hated me. I played around too much. Playing Straight! Wrestle rock have fun too so once. I figured out how to do it I. Never looked back. Yeah, and I just kept doing it and kept writing songs, and and so forth and trying to find Bama A it. Yeah, and Cairo actually was formed by me. I had all the songs all that and I was doing some. Always doing videos. That's how I made money. So I was doing some videos for a record company I did some instructional videos I did instructional video with Dean? Castro Novo who is drummer of journey. Okay, and it's called high-performance drumming, and that was through no records Mike, Varney shrapnel records, and it was distributed through D., C., I. In New, York and you know. Was Did really good, and then I had another one for a guitar player by the name of Tony macalpine again through shrapnel records and shopping records is huge. Mike Varney found all the best guitar players in the world. So you know really great in that anyway At this point. They're recognizing Like the people that you're working with their recognizing the level, the ability that you have on the drums as well right like was he did. They did absolutely because you know. Hey, I'm working with a record. reccomend doing some videotape musician to you got to take the stuff. Yeah, and so he did you know and he thought it was good and so I just kept doing it, and he says hey. I Mike Varney said Hey, I know a guy is just getting tour. Keyboardist is classically trained I need to introduce them to you. That'd be really cool. So that's how Cairo formed. I. Mike Varney dinner to mark Robertson who is a classic, trained, a piano player and synth player and the whole thing. He went to the conservatory as a nine foot, grocery and piano. Hammond C three Hammarby three, Leslie, Spinning, Speakers, the whole thing mini, Moog synthesizers. The guy is the real deal. His idol is Keith Emerson. Okay Yep I've ever they can palmer who is one of my favorite prog? Bands of all time you know just amazing. So when Mike Varney introduced me to mark Roberson brought him over to the studio I had all my keyboard setup I started showing songs. He's like wow. A drummer can write songs so for the first month. I was just showing my songs in front of my keyboard. Keyboards and he was like playing along with it. He's playing along with finally one day says you know Brockman once you get behind the drums, I think I got it, and then when I got behind the drums I saw what the guy could really do. Like left hand over here right hand over here. He's turned himself into to people and just going crazy. I'm just going. Oh my God. This is the real deal. So, then I could just give him anything. I wrote he would go home. Take my compositions and just tournament little masterpieces, and then we'd work on the parts, and he'll say I really like this part, but I think this is better as a as a bridge. Instead of course, our vice versa, and then we'd work it out and really easy to work with, and I really appreciated that he gave me the time and patience beams. How that he went to the conservatory? You know I trained I taught myself. keyboards and guitar, and all that I did take drum lessons starting in fourth grade. Drama, and all that so I can read all the rudimentary snare stuff you know. Was was that you're kind of injured like official introduction introduction as a child to music or like? Where did that kind of a well? The introduction was my dad. always had music playing in the house. Yeah, and he loved her Albert in the Tijuana, brass okay and And,.
Chiefs' Tyreek Hill reportedly day-to-day after hamstring injury, could return in Week 13 vs. Raiders
"Big Win for the chiefs last night. no doubt about got it and they needed it at have it out of habit. It's in division. It is a road win technically indecision for Kansas City and So check doc box and they needed it but win because guess what. Raiders are out on their heels. Raiders have the same number of losses raiders. Now with the chiefs on their are by week head to New Jersey to take on the jets who have suddenly piece together a couple of wins in a row and this. This will not be easy for Oakland. Oakland and I'm sure gruden will be knocking on wood. If you with me about how difficult you know this Guy Jamal. Adams is and this guy. Darnall just threw four touchdowns but it's a win against a three win team on the road away from tying the chiefs and having a game in in Kansas City with the chiefs coming back from their bye week in week Baker's dozen with the AFC West Online. And I think that's all kinds of delicious. But for the time being the chiefs chiefs did their part to set that up as a possibility the reverse would have been far more difficult for them to handle going into a bye week and sure enough. I was concerned about that turf. There were large chunks of it coming up. tyreek Hill hurt his hamstring. We're assuming zooming he'll be fine after a week off the bye and Mahomes if you told me Christopher Brockman never actually let's flip flip the script if I told you if I told you the dafter Patrick mahomes defending. Mvp of your national the football league that his kneecap was on the side of his right leg. I told you the very next day. Not only would he only missed two games but the chiefs would definitely have him out on the field in Mexico where the game had to be cancelled due to concerns over turf that he would be out there. We would be seeing chunks of turf coming up and he would be the leading rusher of the Kansas City chiefs. What if I told you that fact no chance as what happened sure enough? That's more more more more impressive. Things too is that the chiefs the chiefs only got one hundred. Eighty two passing yards out of mahomes. It was the second least productive night and that statistical category for his entire career the only time in which he has thrown for less in a game was the game I just referred to where the KNEECAP was on the side of his leg and he got knocked out of it. Just after seventy six yards passing. But he had fifty-nine rush yards in the game. CAREER-BEST I'm telling you chiefs fans. You need to find a running game. I don't know maybe it's that other kid Williams who came in for Damian Williams. Maybe IT'S DARYL I duNno. We'll Shawn McCoy. Had some nice runs. You did have to rushing touchdowns not from homes. Last night. I get it to us the bigger phrase I get get it but What what what I need to see from his chiefs team moving forward with old man winter paying a visit more often than not this team it looks like for this team to make the Super Bowl? Not only will they have to win based on things all right now now. Not only will they have to win a wild card weekend home game but they are gonNA have to go into Baltimore or into new New England after winning that home game and beat the Patriots and or Ravens in their houses in a mid January on a presumably very cold mid January day. They are going to have to run the ball. They cannot let Baltimore or and New England pin near years back and go chase mahomes and there will be a dress rehearsal for that actually for the Kansas City chiefs coming up in week fourteen when they visit New England after playing that game against the raiders. There'll be that Dress rehearsal. We'll see how they can fair in that one but they need to find a running game name and right now they don't have somebody that can just carry it fifteen to twenty times a game and give the chiefs the the proper amount of breathing room and the proper amount of play action viability right now. I'm not seeing it. I haven't haven't seen it with consistency and that concerns me about this team's super bowl hopes

Those allegations pertain to actress Lucia Evans who claims Weinstein sexually assaulted her. Now, Evans's attorney said very emphatically that this says nothing about Weinstein's innocence. But that it does highlight a feud between the DA's office and the NYPD Kerry Goldberg said because of this the DA's office botched the case, but that Evans will go forward and proved that Weinstein did sexually assault her perhaps in a civil case. Now, the DA's office says it will go full speed ahead as well and proceed with the other charges in the case. In fact, some documents are going to be made public today that hasn't been seen before these relate to some emails between one of the victims, not Evans, but another of the victims, and and Weinstein and Weinstein's attorney Ben Brockman had been looking to make this evidence public because.
