Adrenaline Mob is hitting their hometown (well, part of the band is from NJ). Don’t miss them as they support their latest album. They’ll be joined by The Wild.
Though the news has been circulating since Friday when the terrible accident took place, its taken me a couple of days to formulate thoughts and accept this one and I must admit that its pretty hard to do. It hits close to my creative heart but it is true – bassist David Z. (Zablidowsky) was killed in a horrific crash early Friday afternoon while the bands RV was roadside repairing a flat while on an Adrenaline Mob tour. The news and need to properly memorialize David finds me quoting the late great Chris Cornell from a Temple Of Dog track where he sang “I never wanted to write these words down for you…..” and as someone who has not only appreciated the talents of Dave Z since beginning his own media adventure I was proud to also consider him a friend.

Adrenaline Mob is back in the NY Groove. Support will come from The Wild.
On Friday, March 20th the sad news was announced about longtime Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero passing away. He was currently on tour with Adrenaline Mob who he had joined not too long ago and recorded their “Men Of Honor” album. The band was currently rocking their fans with the newest album “Dearly Departed” when A.J. left us. On Saturday night, Adrenaline Mob would perform again and do so in honor of their fallen band mate. PiercingMetal’s good friend Nicole Geib was in attendance and shared several photos that she took from the barricade and a quick summary for our readers. I would have loved to be on point myself but had already scheduled coverage of the Enslaved show at Gramercy Theatre. Check it out below.
“Adrenaline Mob played a beautiful tribute show to AJ Pero last night at Starland Ballroom, and Mike Portnoy reunited with them to honor AJ. It was part of the Drowning Pool tour, but those guys really helped to honor AJ by wearing their Adrenaline Mob shirts while playing AND by letting Adrenaline Mob play last and headline the show. AJ was a truly wonderful, genuine, and kind man, and this show was really a beautiful tribute to him. AJ’s son even joined the guys on stage briefly, and received condolences from them. For the finale, Jay Jay French came on stage, grabbed his guitar, and they closed the show with Twisted Sister’s You Can’t Stop Rock & Roll. RIP AJ. Your memory will live on forever even though you could not.”
