#NOTME - Mad About Men


Many of my music business colleagues are saying #METOO. I don’t know how I missed that boat. But now that I think about it, maybe I didn’t. It made me think a few things about myself. Was I not hot enough in the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s to be a victim of inappropriate behavior in … Continued

Why Is This Allowed? - Mad About Men

Why Is This Allowed?

I am going to get hell for this, I understand, but why is this allowed? Many of us are allergic to animals. Why do airlines allow dogs in the cabin? A few of you have said, “Well, it’s not as bad as a crying baby.” But to me, a barking dog is most definitely worse … Continued

Surprise! - Mad About Men


I can’t find the official source of this, but there is a popular theory floating around the internets lately: You have just three major loves in your lifetime. This is not the “three love theory,” by anthropologist Helen Fisher, which is a whole other theoretical ball of wax (her three loves are passion, lust, and … Continued

Sex With Me… - Mad About Men

Sex With Me…

My friend and Mad About Men Radio Show partner, Kirk McEwen and I talked openly on his podcast. We discussed things we can’t talk about on our terrestrial radio show. And yikes! He asked me some VERY personal questions, and because I am so comfortable with him, I gave the #nofilter version. Fast forward to 46:46.

Mad About Men 98

Have you ever listened to the Mad About Men radio show? It airs on 98 Rock in Baltimore. Assuming you don’t live in Baltimore, I am aware you’ll never remember to stream it live on Wednesdays at 5:30pm (I can barely remember myself). Instead, you can listen to it on SoundCloud or Facebook. One of … Continued

Risky Reading - Mad About Men

Risky Reading

When I tell people I wrote a book, they automatically assume it’s a tell-all about my career in the music business. “Do you talk about your time working with KISS?” “Are there any Bon Jovi stories?” “I bet [insert name of annoying ex-boss here] is featured!” “Am I in it?” No, you’re not fucking in … Continued

Oops, I Wrote A Book - Mad About Men

Oops, I Wrote A Book

OK, so…this happened: I wrote a book, MAD ABOUT MEN. To quote myself, “It’s scary to allow others to read your personal confessions. People judge, they can’t help it. So by spilling all these stories out, I am exposing parts of myself that are maybe not so lovely.” And with that, now please now have … Continued
