The Cost

Hey everybody…So I know Jim has let the cat out of the bag that he’s going to be Mr. Photographer guy in his spare time, and Robby’s joining the business side of the music industry by managing Addison Road, and of course there’s Bart and his love for the good ol’ southern baptist hymnal.

Well for me, I’ve started trying to help out some newer indie bands. When we got started 14 years ago, we were lucky enough to have Jim in the band. For those of you who don’t know, Jim had a recording background when we started MM, so we got free studio time…if you can call daycare centers and abandoned houses studios, (yes our 1st few records were on a VERY tight budget.) Well not every band gets to start out with a Jim in their corner, so I’ve started trying to help other bands who are where we were in the beginning. Helping them record their songs so hopefully they can make the whole world sing. That being said, here’s a band I recently produced a few songs for. They’re from our own Greenville, TX. and they’re called The Cost.

Nellis Air Force Base

At Nellis Air Force Base we had the honor of playing for our troops and the sheer joy of getting to climb around on old retired tanks!!! We all instantly turned into 12 year olds…it was awesome!!!! We also got to meet some of the Helo Rescue squad…these guys fly behind enemy lines not only to rescue our boys, but any one on our side fighting global terrorism. Not only was it an honor to spend a few minutes with them , but it was a breath of fresh air to hear from the horses mouth and not the media.

These guys miss home, but know that this is a war worth fighting, and want to finish the job they started. Not sure what side of it all everyone lands on, but it’s great to hear that our boys aren’t backing down and are still willing to put themselves in harms way for not only our freedom, but also for the freedom of everyone!
