Randy air guitaring to the 20min YOB song he played during his @sxmliquidmetal #TheCrucible special surrounding his book #DarkDays at the signing event yesterday at #BookSoup on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood CA! Him & #CoreyTaylor united their literary powers and signed over 500 books for over 3 hours! There was no music being played so naturally I pulled out my iPhone & played Randy's @siriusxm special and besides hearing his own voice (which he hated btw) we got chance to see him react to his song picks, and when YOB's epic song came on THIS was @drandallblythe's expression! We @melissammangin & @rockmywalls were honored to be in their presence, and they treated the fans with so much love and respect it was beautiful to see! We actually made (well I didn't Melissa did!) award winning guacamole & brought his fav @corinascocina #Salsa for Randy & Book Soup staff to enjoy before event! Anything we can do to make Randy's California experience better we did! And THANX to many of you that came up to me & said some cool things re SXM, appreciate it more than you know!!!
Mr. Corey muthafukkin Taylor serenading a sold out #HouseOfBlues Hollywood last night during his last stop on his "You're Making Me Hate You" solo tour in support of his 3rd book release! He jammed out acoustic covers from The Eagles, Green Day, Pink Floyd, Prince, Steel Panther, Van Halen but my two favs were "Lightning Crashes" Live & "Love Song" by The Cure! Oh and the new version of "Spit It Out" rules, he made us hop on one foot during breakdown! Hahaha we all looked ridiculous!?! ThanX to my sexy date @melissammangin & my brother @rockmywalls for the awesome hang at the Cali rock show!!! Corey's show marks one of the last at this particular HOB, this one on the Sunset Strip is closing at the end of this month! I'll for sure see you at the LAST show here on the 29th of this month featuring one of my life's favs @anthrax!!! Fukyeah Corey, you impressed the shit out of us again last night, CONGRATS on all the success with the books, tours, bands & fam! See ya Tuesday & Wednesday at the @altpress Music Awards in Cleveland! #Slipknot #StoneSour #CoreyTaylor

Los Mangins moving TODAY to Costa Mesa CA but not w/out leaving a permanent scar of appreciation for everyone who touched our lives over the last 15 years. The last 24 hours has been extremely tough & emo, but we know a new exciting chapter awaits us on the West. In the words of my lord @ozzyosbourne "We Love You All!!!" @melissammangin #MyaMaria #AvaMarisol #RockyDimebag @melanie_325 📷
THE LAST METAL JAM- NJ Man Cave w @sxmliquidmetal's Scotty blasting drums & my @deanguitars 1980 Cadillac sounding insanely sick through @artie777's #Marshall half cab! Scotty has played the drums inside this room since the beginning & more times than anybody else in the 8 yrs it's been open for operational shredding! @wellzdrumz @kyngpepe are the only other drummers that have also jammed a shit ton of times in my little slice of studio heaven. I'm going to miss this room and I can't even tell ya how many times we played at extreme volumes at all hours of the day/night, and the kids wouldn't even wake up. @melissammangin sometimes would get so pissed off that she would text/call me from upstairs telling me to STOP!?!?! Hahaha! 🔊😜🔊 --- Thanks to all my friends who visited & jammed the Man Cave over the years! I'm looking forward to my new California Man Cave... Let the next chapter in jamming begin!!!
