Full Metal Jackie

Rock 'n' roll is in my blood! I began my radio career as a DJ at WSOU, Seton Hall’s legendary metal station. Even though I’m from the East Coast, I always wanted to find a warmer climate to call home. Fortunately for me, I wound up in Los Angeles where the beaches are beautiful and the sushi is delicious. I’ve worked alongside some huge rock stars like Dave Navarro and Henry Rollins, and I’ve interviewed a lot of my heroes. And now, I’ve landed the gig of my dreams, hosting 'Loudwire Nights' on radio stations across America!

So, the Revolver Golden Gods awards are done and it was a a fairly awesome evening (for me anyway.) By now you've heard about the winners, so I wanted to give you a run down of what happened on the black carpet before the show.

I got there early and got my camera and sound guys set up in order to be ready for the 5PM kickoff.
