Metal legend Ronnie James Dio dead…

May 18th, 2010 1 comment

Not long ago I did a cover song of Black Sabbath, remember? NIB

So it felt like posting about Ronnie James Dio, the singer who replaced Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath and who died at age 67… what happened? life! It doesn’t matter actually how, does it? well, it was not a murder and not a suicide…

Anyway, I just wanted to say good bye to a great voice! RIP

Tom Weston, a box full of surprises!

April 21st, 2010 36 comments

Remember the interesting animated video (N.I.B.) I recently released? Well, Its director, Tom Weston is a multi-skilled character and I didn’t even know!

I was at home last week, when someone rang the door and drop a package before I could see who it was… The messenger wasn’t important in that case, but what the box contained was! Two books autographed by the writer: Tom Weston! I was  gladly surprised, because I didn’t know he was also a writer (I must admit that Nordic King was the one in direct contact with Tom). So I did some research and I found out that this man is a talented and hardworking man.

Here is his BIO (for more info you can go to his site):

“Originally from England, Tom now resides in Boston, Massachusetts.

Before turning his hand to fiction, Tom had a successful career as the CEO of a
consulting company, conference speaker and writer of industry articles and business books.
But determining that the business world lacked a sense of humor, Tom decided to hand in his jacket and tie and instead turned to the world of literature.

His novel, First Night, set in Boston during the New Year’s Eve festival, introduced the unlikely heroines, Alex and Jackie, and the ghost of a 17th century Puritan named Sarah Pemberton. First Night won an Honorable Mention in the Middle-Grade/Young Adult category, in the Writers Digest 17th Annual International Self-Published Book Awards.

The sequel to First Night, called the Elf of Luxembourg, was publshed in January, 2010. As with First Night, The Elf of Luxembourg is also a supernatural mystery, with a blend of humor and history that has become Tom’s trademark.

Tom is currently working on Book 3 of the Alex and Jackie Adventures, and is researching the background material for the story, which will be set in Ireland.

Tom has also written the screenplay, Fission, based on the true story of scientist, Lisa Meitner, and the race for the atomic bomb, and which was named a finalist at the London Independent Film Festival”

My N.I.B cover brought up attention and some controversy, of course!

As you know I put up my new song in my Facebook fan page but only for some days, just to test how would it work and what my fans feel about me covering big artist that is far from my own style, like Black Sabbath.

It provoke some controversy among a small group of people, probably big fans (to the guts!) of Black Sabbath who without even giving me or my N.I.B. version a chance, they just complaint about me going into sacred ground… C’mon! Be open minded will never hurt and then if u still don’t like my music (it’s all about a matter of taste) let the aggression aside and leave in peace, right? :)

Anyway, they were a small group as I said. The rest of you had a great response and gave me good feedback, a lot of support and encouraged me to continue in the same path and that’s what makes me happy, MAKE YOU happy! 😀

What’s next? well, there are a lot of plans, remixes, videos, gigs, etc, so keep ears, eyes and mind open.
