How This CRO Builds Start-ups with Both Enterprise and High Velocity Sales Teams
"Mark thanks for joining us today. As a way of getting started gives a little. Bit of background on yourself eight brian. Thanks for having me on the program background. I love talking about myself. So you might have to cut me off here I am currently the chief revenue officer very silicon valley like term for a a data company called h. g. data. I live in the san francisco bay area. And i come down to beautiful santa barbara For a couple of days a week which is where we're located and as far as being in sales. What's what's you specialty in. Well there there. Two things that i that i spent with their two type of companies that i've spent most of my career with here for the last decade more turnaround situations where i've been brought into tech companies. That have stalled. Started to flail little bit and on the guy that Gets out the shock. shock pads and tries to rejuvenate an entity. And those are those are fun when when you can do them well and then i've also recently gotten a bit addicted to pre revenue tech startups. These are two or three guys sitting in a basement with a whiteboard. They often don't even have product built yet. They've got an idea they want to disrupt the market. And i'm brought in as the go to market guy like let's figure out what we can monetize how to do it. And then let's get after it get some revenue in the door go gets around funding and then hopefully get it to to be erected or see. Let's let's start with the turnaround. Because that's kind of what i've been dragged into for the last five years. What's your approach on the turnaround. So you going into a place there. Stalled at I don't know what your space made. Five ten million dollars. The investors are anxious. They can't raise another round. What's your approach. Well i think there's there's two frames that i typically look at in one one. I usually do pre engagement to to determine if i'm going to get get involved. Which is what's the external market conditions. you know. I have been lucky enough to work in spaces that are growing so that is just tech in general but more specifically the last couple of years has been serum extended. I did do a stint in healthcare it. That was tacked. But i probably miss read. What's happening with healthcare from the outside. That looks very appealing but internally not so much so the first is the external environment is this arena where entrenched players are have gotten a little bit lazy and buying cycles are such that that new entrance can break in in make a difference so that's the external environment and based on what i've said i've generally focused on environments where i think that they are right once in turtle is often find that that it's just business one one stuff and i have been around long enough you know. I got out of college in ninety one. Next week is my forty th birthday and so i've i've seen business cycles and i been in the bay area over over twenty years so i certainly have seen hype curbs in bubbles and bus and i think that has allowed me to go in and call. I don't know if i if i gave you the longer. Version that if you if you'd have to bleep it. Pc see i've seen when folks are deluding themselves when companies are deluding themselves on either their product market fit or their go to market strategy or the original vision their differentiation of strategy disagreements between senior staff or investors board and staff and usually between those those bullets i just listed. There's two or three major disconnects that when you're living and breathing a startup you just lose perspective and by being the new guy on the block. I can actually call out those things relatively quickly. I'm also an east coast guy so even been california now since ninety three. I tend to be very frank and direct And i think that that candidness allows people to to call out the elephant in the room. That people have been avoiding for some time. I don't know if
How the pandemic is impacting Bay Area small businesses
"This episode is part of our series exploring covid nineteen impact on nonprofits and small businesses in the san francisco bay area back in april of twenty twenty when we decided to create this ongoing series on covid nineteen impact i or nonprofits and then on small businesses in the san francisco bay area. We like you had no idea how long the pandemic would go on. And what the health and economic impact would be in our community going into twenty twenty one. The pandemic is now killing more people shutting down more nonprofits and small businesses on with wiping out the livelihoods of families neighborhoods and communities. We will continue to shine a spotlight on the nonprofits and small businesses that make up the fabric of our community along with the founders and staff who are struggling to deal with the impact of the covid nineteen pandemic on their operations services is an ability until we can all get to the other side of the pandemic along the way we will also share with you all the amazing solutions that are nonprofits. Small businesses foundations and government leaders are working on to help us all get to the other side of the pandemic and come together to rebuild our communities with more economic social and environmental equality. What is very clear is that business owners are challenged right now in a way they never have been you know open close and indoors outdoors. You know p p what is it. What do i do with it. Who do i give it to so many challenges right now and our goal is to really help is many of these small businesses weather this storm so to speak as best we can and for that reason i like to encourage businesses to reach out to us especially work with a business advisor. This is the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office julie. Cows over these ten plus months we have been sharing the voices of small businesses and covert nineteen s- devastating impact on their survival with the latest round of federal funds now being deployed we wondered host julie to help guide our listeners through the funding opportunities available to both nonprofits in small businesses. I'm joined remotely via zoom by julie. Cows the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office. Thank you for being here. Julie thank you for the invitation. The sba is one of those government departments that for a lot of people. See it as a black box where it's going to require all these forms all this information i don't have so i think it would really be helpful if you could provide a background on the sba here in san francisco. That's the district to manage and how you work with small businesses and really now nonprofits. Absolutely i do think. There's a lot of preconceived notions about who. Spa is what they do and who we help. But we are a federal agency where an independent agency and our mission is to help. Businesses start and grow and continue to prosper. And we do that. Offering a variety of programs and services can kinda break those into four buckets as an easy way to talk about it. A so there's the access to capital bucket. Which may be where most known for but we actually have programs that go from microfinancing loans of fifty thousand dollars or less all the way on up through venture capital and then our bread and butter program kind of is our loan guarantee program which is loans through commercial lenders up to five million but we also have government contracting assistance so we help with federal certifications. We actually work behind the scenes with other agencies trying to get them to utilize small businesses as their contractors so we do a lot to help small businesses kind of break into federal contracting and be successful the third bucket we have is business advising free business counseling and low no cost training and honestly. I think this is probably the most invaluable service. Sba offers so through our network of grants resource providers. You may have heard small business development center score women business centres anna veteran business outreach center we provide free business advising and especially in this challenging times right now. This is an invaluable resource for businesses. You will never be charged for the advising services and you can talk about any issue that you have that's pressing or if you wanna strategize with somebody look at them as a visor to help you think about your future and how you weather the rest of this cova pandemic and then the fourth bucket which is kind of been a theme for the last year is our disaster assistance program. We typically will go in on declared disasters in provide financial support loans support to cover uninsured losses and to help with economic injury for small businesses and nonprofits that has now become kind of the focal point of the assistance. The covid recovery assistance for small businesses in nonprofits so as a district office. We're here to kind of administer. Some of these programs do some oversight but really warrant at grassroots level of sba engage with the community engage with our small businesses. And make sure that they are tapped into the resources that can benefit their business
What COVID-19 lockdowns show about a future with electric vehicles
"Many people expect the future of transportation to be electric and that drivers will charge their cars with solar and wind power. Recently scientists got a window into that future and saw what it could mean for the climate and people's health. Ronald cohen is a professor of chemistry at the university of california. Berkeley for years. His team has been using low cost sensors to monitor and map carbon emissions and air pollution in the bay area when the covid nineteen pandemic hit. He saw unique opportunity shelter in place. Orders effectively stimulated a future with fewer gas powered cars. We had a brief moment two or three weeks in every city that shutdown where passenger vehicles drop to almost half of their normal driving miles. Coen's team found that during the first six weeks of the shelter in place order in the san francisco bay area carbon dioxide emissions fell by about thirty percent other air pollution improved to and that was almost entirely due to a decrease in passenger vehicles. So he says the data demonstrates the benefits of moving away from gas powered cars. We can reduce co two emissions and reduce health impacts at the same

How the San Francisco Comunity Music Center is thriving in the pandemic
"Of our counters died from complications due to hiv and aids. I'm the remaining survivor. There are many who supported a stirring that time but having navigated losing dancers choreographers audience members weekly similar to what we're seeing now and yet the differences so many people were unaware and didn't care you can tell. The pain still sits with me the trauma and i think that we are in that now. We will be in that period of time. I would say decades of time where we will be sitting with. What wasn't done. What was left unsaid. What was not attempted for the safety of people over profit. This is the co founder and executive director of dancers group wayne hazard. The dancer group was born in the middle of the aids crisis and has over the decades into a service organization providing wrap around fiscal sponsorship programs and services to incubate and support artists and the dance community as well as their historical roots at presenting unique grassroots base. Dance to the san francisco bay area. I'm joined remotely via zoom by wayne hazard the executive director of dancers group. Thanks for being here win. Thanks george it's my pleasure on martin luther king junior day twenty twenty one yes quite a solemn day and quite a powerful day so segue to our first question. Which is i think. The audience probably doesn't know dance group which is an interesting can of service group model. So if you could give us a little background on the dancers group and some of the really unique the of eighteen programs while it's my favorite topic obviously vance's group has been around since nineteen eighty two and we were founded in san francisco's mission district. We really started out. As a collective of choreographers of dance makers looking to have support space and camaraderie and ways to be in relationship to one. Another and really. That hasn't changed thirty nine years later. I like to call us now. Hybrid organization. Because i think it kind of clicks with people one and two. It's kind of what we do in terms of providing direct services to dance makers dancers those interested in dance and we also present dance at timmy's and i say that in that way because we do commissioning of work but we also have large programs of the your leg bay area dance week where pretty The pandemic we had twenty two thousand people in the spring. Take free dance. Classes all over the bay area from hip hop to who led to back to tap to beginning movement classes. Were children to adults. Dance for people with parkinson's you name it. We probably haven't morale-booster over the years so the services we do really are about you know supporting people where they are classes. Discounts performance information discounts on those and. Then we provide direct services to dance makers through our fiscal sponsorship program. We have over one hundred and twenty five dance companies dance projects that fundraise under us so each year close to one point. Five million raised less than we redistribute through expenses back to those entities where over generally pandemic times of three hundred thousand people attend those company and artists activities classes and performances though this last going on ten months with covid nineteen and so much of obviously performing arts and dance especially is a personal experience. How has the dance group dealt with the covid nineteen and economic meltdown. And then how do you feel like. It's impacted all of the dozens of dance. Performance groups that you incubate and work with big question. I'll start by saying that. Dancers groups founders along with myself win through the aids pandemic in the early eighties. All the way into the nineties and still continuing today as a worldwide pandemic beget really not seeing that way. Because of i think broadly and it's changed a bit but seeing as a gay male disease. Two of our founders died from complications hiv and aids. I'm the remaining survivor. There are many who supported a stirring that time but having navigated losing dancers choreographers audience members weekly similar to what we're seeing now and yet the differences so many people were unaware and didn't care you can tell. The pain still sits with me the trauma and i think that we are in that now. We will be in that period of time. I would say decades of time where we will be sitting with what was done what was left unsaid. What was not attempted for the safety of people over prophet so specifically to your question. I think one of the first things we did as an organization is aboard said. Are you okay and we. We talked a lot. We said to staff your job is there. We like many organizations applied for support both private foundations and others to help us navigate this time. We are very fortunate in the bay area to have major foundations. Like the hewlett some rain ins and haase's and fly checkers Really step forward and then we just looked at getting information out early on also. Many organizations were creating cove relief funds and the area had going. i and i was approached by a donor. Saying here's a large took money. Let's get this out to dancers. And i said well what if we join forces with theatre bay area would if we not created just one more fun but just was able to get more money to one fund and so the funder liked that the donor like that theatre bay area. Love that inter music. Sf joined as well and so there's a performing arts workers relief fund on theatre bay area dot org site it's also on dancers
Unpacking The Surge In Violence Against Asian Americans
"Seeing a surge and anti Asian attacks against the elderly. A 91 year old man was violently shoved to the ground in Oakland's Chinatown in 84 year Old Man was killed in San Francisco last month. And this uptick in anti Asian violence is not just local wrestled. Young is a professor of Asian American studies at San Francisco State University and co founder of Stop A P I Hate, which is tracking these incidents. And professor have the number and kinds of these incidents against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders change since the pandemic began. Yeah, in the beginning at the start of the pandemic, when people had higher fears when shelter in place started. And when President Trump began to insist on using the term China virus, we saw clear surge of racism. We saw how hate speech like using the term China virus led to hate violence. And I think that has invited a climate where people can target Asian Americans and attack them. It's really horrifying the crimes against our elderly population. You know, my mom's 94. I grew up with my grandmother. So for the Asian American community, see our elders. An attack like this is particularly Horrific and touches close to home. There have been previous waves of hate crimes against Asian Americans over in our country's history, obviously and during periods of economic distress going back Two the murder of instant shin in Michigan in 1982. Does this seem different to you? We've seen surges and racism against Asian American during times of epidemic. During times of war like Japanese American incarceration, Yes or 9, 11 and in times of economic downturn. It's different now, because we're have all three conditions. We have the pandemic. We have the worst recession since the Great Depression. And we have the U. S. China Cold War. What kinds of incidents are you seeing? Um, Obviously we've seen these brutal physical attacks against the elderly Recently. What other kinds of incidents are you seeing? Yes. Oh, about 8% of our incidents are physical thoughts were getting pushed and showed having rocks and bottles thrown at us another of large percentage. We're getting coughed and spat upon 8% of our cases. So my own wife was Running insulin disc, locked her away on a trail and coughed in her face That's happened so often again. We began to track it and because because people think we're a health hazard, so they want to get back at us by coughing at us, it's sort of unique to the pandemic. Most cases, though, our verbal harassment 70% are we're getting yelled at again. We have racial slurs slung at us, but the other, not this micro aggressions. They're pretty traumatizing. They're really troubling these cases of hate. And how satisfied are you with the response by law enforcement in the community, especially here locally with these recent incidents. Think law enforcement and local jurisdictions have been responsive. They recognized the problem. I think it's because Asian American community has advocated and stood up so strongly. President Biden issuing a memo announcing the anti Asian here. I think that's a victory for the Asian American community breath. These concerns his attention. You know, Friday's Lunar New Year do you have, you know heightened safety concerns around This, uh, this upcoming holiday? Yeah, we do. Asian American only are often going out shopping may have more money and then could be more vulnerable. So we're calling in at least in the San Francisco Bay area is for local residents to go out and patronize Chinatown because of the pandemic, Things had been shut down. And so the elderly when they do go out or more isolated if we could have more residents going out shopping, strolling not acting as vigilantes or patrols, but just being present. Also calling for more funding for community ambassadors, not necessarily more policing. But more hiring of local residents who know the neighborhood come from the community that speech of the merchants and the residents. No, even serving the UN house. People in our neighborhood. Okay.
South African variant of COVID-19 identified in California
"Cases of the South African Corona virus variant in the San Francisco Bay Area. Governor Gavin Newsom announced the findings today during a trip to Fresno to town the state's efforts to vaccinate people More than five million vaccine doses have been administered in the state. The South African variant is one of several that's been identified in California. The presence of the new virus variants marked a dim note in an otherwise upbeat news conference by the governor today. Justina Honest and reports California's first two cases of the South African Corona virus mutation were detected in Alameda and Santa Clara counties. Governor Gavin Newsom made the announcement during a trip to mark the state's five million vaccination in Fresno. We have 159 identifiable cases of the UK variant in the state. We have 1203 identifiable west Coast variance in the state there two types of West Coast variants. I said yesterday that we had not identified any Brazilian variants, and that's true Yesterday. I also said we hadn't identified any South African variance that's no longer true. As of a few hours ago, we have the first reported cases of South African variants. Two cases have been reported to Stanford, Newsome says. In total, the state has identified less than 1500 cases of variant covert 19 strains. South African variant was first identified in the nation late last month. In South Carolina. Scientists and health officials feared the new variants could be more contagious, less responsive to treatments like vaccines and more likely to re infect people who already had the virus. Experts say One of the mutations may become a dominant Corona virus strain in the coming months, and if it's resistant to treatment, another surge could be looming. But until then, Newsome says Corona virus infection rates, hospitalizations and cases continue to decline in California 34% decline in

"Bill. Graham for anybody who doesn't know bill. Graham is great promoter of the bay area one of the legendary rock promoter and he started putting on these shows which were basically gifts to the bay area called day on the green where there will be an amazing bill with actually different kinds of bands on it And they would always be in like like Oakland Stadium earls Oakland Berkeley Calcium. Yeah Yeah so they would big show summer shows and of course infused bill. Graham could be the biggest accident so I mean there was huge headliners. You know it would be the biggest acts of day with a bunch of smaller bands but it was always amazing thing so people would go to the show you turn up at the at the at the arena at the arena. The stadium at you know Eleven o'clock in the morning and you'd see amazing stuff from like noon onward all the Bay Area Musicians Attendance Car Kamat as a youngster attended. These shows and meant the big deal. I think that's when I gotta look at. Ufo was at one of those shows and everybody talks about them. So it's a big deal when in nineteen hundred. Five metallic is asked to be on the bill of this show now the headliner. That day was Scorpions. And then there's a few other bands below. That rat was one of the bands that day. But METALLICA was I think second or third on the bill early it was still daylight when they were playing but it was a huge acknowledgement that this band was up and coming and that they meant something and of course two of the players in the band. Kirk and cliff a from the bay area so they literally looking out at the sea of people but seeing friends there and they had of course been people in the audience if they on the ground so for them. It was a huge moment for them personally but also for thrash metal. Brian Lou puts it very well in the film. He said. The fact that Metallica was playing Dan the Green. It was like all of us are playing down the green we all. They can make crush a lot lately and I want to add this. Luckily for history. There'd be no record of it. Were not for MTV news. It's not even the regular. Division news had their camera one camera there and typically news is allowed to she three songs of anybody set and then you have to shut down your cameras. Same thing with photographers day. Let them shoot songs and make clear out the pit and then then they're they're not allowed to be there anymore so thankfully for history. That camera on that day was located on Cliff Burton side of the stage and when cliff played this. I mean anything but particularly when he was playing the intro for whom the bell tolls. The camera was right there on him. And it's probably believed the best record you know in filmed version that we have of cliff. Burton playing anything but of course that song. And it's you know it's all over the Internet it's everywhere and it's a legendary piece of footage and really if anything demonstrates cliffs unique ability. It's that moment in time so thankfully that day. That camera was located there. Yeah I personally think that that's their worldwide. Coming out party is Them on the green that will always be remembered as that moment Where you know they they they start the crossover outside of small into into you know let's face it world domination. Exactly I mean who knows where it would go from. There was still only on their second album. Master puppets had not yet come out an and it's amazing but I mean if you look the first two albums kill ride the lightning just each one. That progression forward relentlessly and powerfully. So just an amazing metallica. Just amazing stuff going on there. I love the story. I it may be my favorite story in the movie of them at the show and of course burn that Taryn the dressing room up and then getting called on the carpet. The next story a lot of people had heard a little about. But you know we. We told it really nicely. I mean getting Hadfield to tell them himself than Tony Isabella. Who is a she worked for bill? Graham presents many years booking them and was a real booster of the thrash metal bands not she managed to exit. Throw also not just not. Just of METALLICA. Talking about somebody who really contributed again. I really want to made an effort to get the female perspective in here and show. How important all these ladies were to. The scene Antonio's Abella. You know just like w Bono. The story is is a bit of legend at this point where Metallica played Dan the green following. That did what they normally would do. Which was kind of you know. Get pretty drunk and cut loose and and they happen to wreck the trailer that the backstage trial that they were in a Bill Graham being being the guy he was. I mean he was known for be booking. Great stuff that is hardcore dude. I mean it's five the Holocaust dot out of out of Europe and stuff so he was no pushover. This was a tough man who could like who stood for no no nonsense in his backstage. He viewed it as his home. The backstage was his home. That's that's how he he was and he treated the band's very well by the way he he was known for for taking care of them and he wouldn't tolerate any of this without Bill Graham. We wouldn't have the backstage experience that you get with an artist before Graham. It was. It was dirty nasty. Barely able to find a seat without cockroaches on it or something like that and built turned it into as you said perfectly a home right and he did that. Now he came up during that during the Janice Joplin Jefferson Airplane Eric. But he was still that way in the eighties and and he didn't amazing. Thanks so they tear up the place and you know bill. Bill demanded respect Disrespect this man and he had a lot of cloud. I mean he booked the shows of the bay area so I mean if you went against him did so at your own peril you find yourself not getting booked so I mean you really had respect what he did. But if you're expected to me like you're fine. Yeah so anyway. The famous story is he called. He wanted somebody for the turn out to be James Hadfield. He he had them. You didn't just ask them to get on the phone but he wants to somebody to come down and make a formal apology in person for destroy that that back room and understand what they did and you know it's it's a funny moment. I mean James. As we all know has has been through his trials and tribulations and come through sobriety and and I think at that point he was not there yet. You still many years away from that but I think he respected this stern father figure that that Bill Graham was I mean he didn't go in there and curse him out. James Danes went in there and apologized and kind of admitted to be in kind of an idiot about it and and and I think what you ended was two guys with mutual respect for each other because according to Tony Afterward. You know they'll respect James. It always asks that's for him you know. How's he doing? And and you know James of course returned in Nineteen ninety-one. They play emigrated gimmicks that time they were the headliners so it's really amazing progression there. Yeah now film kind ends with it's almost like to Indians and I think it's a good place a for for the film to come to a close Because it's about the scene and that scene does kind of begin to fade away around the same time that we lose cliff Burton in In one thousand nine hundred was January nineteen eighty six so just a few months after that a couple of September eighty six. That's actually what yes. Oh sorry sorry. I'm sorry I my notes. It's it's raybird cliff's father who just recently passed just yes. He passed away in January this year. That's correct this wonderful man wonderful. Yeah who does make an appearance in the film as well of course? Yeah Yeah. Yeah so but your film does end with the death of of Cliff Burton which is kind of you know the beginning of the fading of the scene itself even though some of these guys continue to you know like we've said several times go on for world domination right. I here's what I knew before. I ever shot any film I sat. I laid the story out with Brian. And Harold Pretty much realized I had a super-rich tale of of of you know this musical movement and Cultural Movement really and that between the starting of exodus in around one thousand nine hundred eighty and I knew I wanted to tell that story about everybody looking for records and everything so I had to have time for that to the death of cliff. Burton in nineteen eighty six. I already had a movie. I just had a movie had ninety minutes of stuff. And so I like I did want to overstay my welcome and I just thought That release it. I didn't want to really say that the scene ended but certainly a moment in the scene. It's absolutely a milestone is. The death of cliff was was such a powerful moment. Felt by so many one of the people said they were all so young they had lost anybody yet and so it was really quite powerful and I thought that's that's much story as I can tell I would encourage anybody to pick up the torch and make a film about a testament or Death Angel. The great stories and should be told. I just didn't have room in my thing to tell it but those those are great stories at almost. Were were starting as cliff. Lewis was having overlap a little bit but you know Kinda cliff was was at the end of his life and those stories. We're just really beginning. There were on so I think it's it's amazing kind of time to like. Bring it up to and yes. We were very fortunate to have the participation of of close father Ray who passed away the old age of much older age of ninety four. He was this year and but you know what was beautiful about it was. He carried the torch for his son for so long. And just you know I feel like he could have just kind of you know guy closed shop. You know just just retired away and not really talked to anybody about it instead. He chose to kind of open up his world and give everybody. I never do cliff. Burton never saw play. But I feel like I knew a bit of him because I was able to talk to Ray and he gave that gift to so many people he was totally open. You go to a fence. Who Go to metallica shows. But it also go to like record store events and all kinds of stuff and and also things for music events where where they would have cl- space or something and he would always be there so people could kind of have a feeling of of being in touch with cliff. That takes a lot of strength. Humility and Ray was beautiful man for doing that. Yeah it was really great. So of course. Yes he beautifully in our movie in very touch by. Yes yeah but the real ending is that this this music persists. It's still out there and you know you spend the you know the end of it with the metal allegiance which is Kinda you know bay area supergroup..

"Google. Join your band but I'm not about moving to la needed. He was adamant about it and and they moved up to the bay area to be with him so at that point it's Lars James Dave McCain. All moving up to the bay area. Yeah so yeah. I forgot about mistaken point. Yeah that's one piece of it. That really made it like there there. But I think what's more telling? Actually is that there are in the bay area for a few months and then comes the whatever you. WanNa say the firing of David saying I didn't get into that movie. I was not into doing behind the music. We all know that story at least interesting part about it and so well. I'll say is that he needed to go his own way. Anyway I mean oh it's great to fucking great bands instead of one good. It's all good I. I'm sure at the time it sucks. I've been fired from a before. I know what it's like you know. So but yeah yeah look they. They made no light 'til leather I think that's the tape that really sends them into the ability to tour and and you know yeah they go on tour and Dave has has admitted his drinking was over the top in. It just didn't work out for that and you know in New York You know here's what I think is so interesting about. It is that which again speaks volumes about the bay area right in in if you go back into the middle of nineteen eighty two when metallica has recorded the the life to leather demo ripe there whatever their this ellie ban not even a year later really they. They see Cliff Burton. They recruit close Burton. They moved to the bay area really within a few months. They let go Dave Mistake. They hire not anybody. But the Kirk Hammett from from exodus and within a really just a short time. They're now percent a bay area band. And I think that tells you as much as you need to know about the kind of musicianship of what's going on in the bay area in terms of this. You know it's amazing. They heard in cliff musician. That was even to this day unparalleled in many ways. I mean he's unique style and in car camera. I mean Jesus as judges of talent you gotta give it to Lars James. Right I mean they they they they pull Kirk Hammett and amazing. Still they should they should be managing. Nfl teams right exactly. They're that good that good talent. No WITHOUT DOUBT WITHOUT DOUBT. So they do. They can come into the famous Metallica mansion there in El Cerrito that also makes an appearance in your in your film and And they begin to to grow and and the scene grows along with them because they don't they don't forget about where they come from as they are quickly climbing the ladder. That's exactly right. They I mean they very quickly started getting you know being built in they move. They went to Europe and spent a lot of time there because fans in Europe got what they were doing a tour there and that's really where they get a lot of their chops in terms of really moving up but before that happened. I wanted to say because you were talking about the different ways of thrash. I think that's kind of what we're getting into the second wave. Yeah Yeah. Is that METALLICA. When they were playing in the bay area and then onward exodus who stayed in the bay area and know of course slayer coming to town. These bands role having an influence on. What's going on because the people attending those shows are are quite literally? I mean we have robb. Flynn from from violence and machine head saying he goes to see these shows and then goes on the whole drive home and he's like he's like a younger kid he's like. I can do that. And Alex Skolnick who is also attend saw early shows in clubs with you know cliff. Burton Metallica is learning guitar and with within you know couple of years I mean. He joins testament which was legacy. And you have these waves starting because you know the amazing thing is. They're not like the idea was like somebody saw this and was like I can do that. I can actually do that. It reminds me of another kind of seen that happened. Which was that was in effect that the ramones had on on on people yes. There's a lot of bands that if they ramone. Cb's or Bano has talked about seeing the ramones when they came through Ireland. They were like the Johnny appleseed I mean everywhere. They went behind them bands formed in their wake. They went to England very famously. Seventy six bands formed. And I feel like Metallica and Exodus and slayer in. A number of the band's really had that effect they they they inspired people. Yeah similar to the Velvet Underground First album which You know famously. Brian know The quote You know maybe only thirty thousand people ever bought that album but every rival made a band. Yeah so it's because it is. It's unique it's different. It's pushing the envelope in one way or another and That attracts that's off. That's authentic and that's really what attracts artists and You know and so we get this second way which you mentioned testament I think death Angel Violence Forbidden Astor part of that and so who I want to talk about with. That is Debbie Bono. Which was one of those characters that you just don't expect and you know at the time you're like you know really. Somebody's MOMS into this and here here. You have it again. This is what I found so unusual and fascinating about the scene. It's what made me WanNa make the film. This film was Brian. Lou and Harold made the book but I was friendlier with Brian Lou and he gave me the book and I was riveted by the book and one of the things that was so interesting. I say who is obviously older woman? Who's around the scene? She's unique in that she stands out in any photo. It's very clear from the photos that you know. Everybody loves her. You know I got the feeling she must be. Somebody's mom but I mean it's just you know she's there and she's all over the place and she's being held by Lars and carcass. Much as by the guys who possessed so I come to find out this woman. Debbie Bono. Her she her daughter was interested in the scene and Was was dating a Larry. Lalonde at one point and and who's in possessed and she got interested in the scene now at that point. She's the woman in her mid fifties. Everybody else is like twenty you know. And and she just was described to me as like the den mother. She took care of them and she. I think Alex Skolnick describes it very well that she a lot of older people saw the the youth says like they. They demonize them especially in the eighties. It was like you know whatever they're up to it's bad and if it's bad it means like you know in league with the devil or at least just bad you know just being at being crazy and out of control and in instead she just viewed as like a bunch of kids and teed rather if they're gonNA party after a club come back to her house at least it's safe and be there now. That's a pretty big step for somebody. She started in managing one of the most out there bands which is possessed right on. Yeah Right Right. And these are really like like a hardcore thrash bands and and she just took them under her wing and just went. And it's really an amazing thing so I had to kind of get her into this and bring that that kind of energy and and again I love stuff. That's you know kind of not the thing you'd expect but it's it's right there in the story. Same thing with wes. Robinson is bringing in these people who supported the scene but they're not usual storyline. You'd expect and I think that's again one of the most interesting things about the fell. It is it is so I wanna I wanNA talk about two. I think critical Shows in being a day on the dirt Which in some ways was a again? A bit of a crossover I don't think any of the bay area punk bands but I know suicidal tendencies was was a part of the no. I take that back. I think I think there were some of those bay area punk bands on the bill as well today on the dirt St- which was actually called Eastern Front. Right there in the dirt was the the The name ever gave it and that's kind of as a nod towards bill. Graham would have these things called Dan the green which is the second part of Mike. Which is we'll get later. Yeah and so what they did. Was they west? Decided he wanted to organize these kind of these outdoor shows over multiple days. You are correct in that he would try have like a pump day that the punk bands would play on and then had more of a Thrash Day. But even there you see. There's a mix and so this day that had a slayer exodus and possess playing also saw suicidal playing. So it just really goes to show. What really is the line and does it really matter at all because the photographs attest to everybody hanging out and being a fast friends and so it just didn't you know it's just think it shows that music music and energies energy? If it's good stuff everybody will enjoy so here. You had these bands playing on this very important day which kind brought together different people in different styles but every you know the council everybody got along was there was a fighting was it was. It was like more like failed. Play together so it kind of expose people to different types of music and I think that's that's a great idea. I mean that's kind of what what what should be. I think most festivals nowadays are kind of set that way or if not multiple stages with the different types of explain to those different stages or you. Have you know if you remember the old Cost US festival. You had one way day and you had a classic rock day in day sort of thing so that's probably where we're where this all comes from and it's around the same same time and you know that but you mentioned slayer and I want to dive into that a little bit more because they did come up and play that show And they're in La Ban and they did come up with some of the La accoutrements. Were there and quickly realized that all that's important it's it's what the bay area was which is just about the music well at that point. I mean things were starting to move now moving and there had been you know. Look somebody they really drew a line. The thrash metal guys a lot of in the form of Paul Bay loss to.

"Time that I met somebody who was from Oregon, and he came down here to Dublin California where I live in the San Francisco Bay area, and he he started going door to door here in my own city and to me that was a shock. I've never done door to door evangelism on my city or much in my life at all. And and just in a short time of we can half. I I started to see people get saved starting to be disciples, and and and the beginnings of church and several instances and just happening so quickly and so powerfully. And so that kinda peaked my curiosity, and I started thinking, you know, what can we do as a church and is making these cycles. And is there a better way? And if there is why wouldn't we do what seems to be most effective with the time that God's given us and the energy that we have so. Yeah. So that got me really thinking about our role as a church. And I I think the church to answer your question. I mean, the church really needs to be about making disciples because that's what Jesus has called us to do. And I think I'm grateful for all the expressions of church. I pastor a church that we have Sunday worship. And we have a pro meetings and bible study, men's and women's groups and things like that. But we began to kinda change things here at the church to make it more conducive to making these cycles like idol worship we started. You know, having time for question and answer afterwards. We had time for training where I wouldn't preach as much which is not easy for pastors. And, you know, just preach, maybe fifteen minutes, and then rest of the time just spend training people modeling things like how to share the gospel with the gospel sharing tool, and then actually setting up tables all over the sanctuary and having people grow break up into pairs and practicing we started empowering people to learn to evangelize and learn how to make disciples, and so I just started thinking about church differently, and what discipleship meant and how we can equip disciple makers and get them rooted in God's word and into flow the Holy Spirit. And and so, yeah, I think all expressions of of church are important in what God is doing. And but yeah, I think we really need to have every every member of the body of Christ passionate about fulfilling Jesus's great commission. Yeah..
