Josh Freese’s Wacky Packs

 

Once again, journeyman
drummer for Devo, NIN, Weezer, Guns N’ Roses, Vandals, et al, offers more wacky
prize packs to promote
My New Friends EP.

By Blurt Staff

 

Lots of artists offer prize packages to fans that help
finance their projects – just check out Kickstarter.com. And while virtually
all of the artists have fun creating prize tiers, and offer personal interactive
experiences, only one guy pulls out all the stops: Josh Freese.

 

Rock ‘n’ roll’s everydrummer, Freese plays with all the cool
kids, especially the ones that helped him finance his Since 1972 album. Some of the wild perks he offered included
writing original songs about fans, playing in their bands, taking them to for
chicken and waffles at Roscoe’s with Twiggy Ramirez from Marilyn Manson, and escorting
them to Tijuana to “show [them] how it’s done.” And he’s doin’ it again to
promote My New Friends, an EP
containing some of those commissioned songs.

 

So check out Freese’s freaky list and see what madness money
can buy – you might find yourself a nice trip to Build-A-Bear with Freese and
Mr. Johnny Knoxville. Imagine the awesome jackassery that will ensue…
