First it was Todd. Then Mad Dog and Chad. Now Eric. Each time one of us gets married, the rest of the band apparently thinks it’s ok to shoot guns (Eric’s), light things on fire (Mad Dog’s) and fall through glass windows (Todd’s). The great news was that we were able to get the original […]
There was a time when I could count on Chad for some fundamental, yet crucially important aspects of JTT business. Yelling at anyone/everyone who worked at Desmond’s Yelling at me for the entire car ride home after a gig Yelling at Eric about his driving Yelling at Todd for his crazy social calendar Now he’s […]
Check out Mad Dog on the set of the latest Olive Garden shoot. The man loves himself some pasta and bread sticks. Does Queen Latifah do the voice over for those commercials? I always thought it sounded like her. Seems like an odd pairing. Someone look that up.
We took a little road trip to Chicago last month to celebrate the nuptials of our dear, dear friend Mad Dog to his longtime love Claire, aka “The Most Patient Woman on the Planet.” We drank beers out of mason jars. We lit these mini hot-air balloons on fire and watched them float away to […]
When Mad Dog decided to retire from public life back in 2008, there was a brief period where the TIP was left heartbroken, drummer-less and “bandmate who refuses to poop on roadtrips” -less. Luckily we were soon able to lure Fightmaster into the fold and the rest as you know is history. But during that […]
Former TIP percussionist Mad Dog got enaged over the weekend, albeit to no one’s real surprise. I was about as shocked to hear this news as I was when I heard Clay Aiken was gay. You gotta give the guy credit for hanging in there as long as he has. It’s just more proof that […]
Well, the first member of the original Just the Tip lineup has gotten married, which must make Mad Dog feel plain terrible. We laughed, we boozed, and we did some other things too. The TIP sat in for a 3-song cameo at the reception, which I’m told went fairly well. At the after party, I […]
You get a flashback to the 1988 classic Willow, without the miserable acting of Val Kilmer. You also get Todd trying to butt into the picture.
You may not remember this, but back in the mid-90’s former Just the Tip drummer Mad Dog was part of a Nickelodeon-assembled band that included “Budnick” from Salute Your Shorts. I think the guy in the middle may actually have been a young “Donkey Lips”, but that has yet to be confirmed. Mad Dog may […]
Since quitting Just the Tip, former drummer Mad Dog has apparently been attending open mic nights at the local VFW while dressed as the uni-bomber. Check out this Radiohead cover:
