ROCKIN's first year began at Billetproof
September 16, 2006. I remember that day well . . . when Brent Rector, ROCKIN's book designer, showed me the very first copy which had been airlifted from China to his Sacramento, CA studio so he could check to see that all was well.
This was at Billetproof, in Antioch, CA, where the rat rods ruled. It was also the day I met James Hetfield from Metallica and put ROCKIN' in his hands as well.
So, as we exit ROCKIN's first calendar year and begin the next, here are a few moments from that day
~ the book itself, atop the pinstriped rear lid of Brent's '59 Cadillac
~ the first promo flyer, slipped onto the windshield of a fantastic Greyhound bus
~ the flyer on the bench seat of a participant's car, ready to point the way
It's been a gas. Ever onward!
