Overdue news, New publicist, press, interviews MS and more

Life has been a little crazy the past 5 months or so, and i am long overdue for an update here.

Shortly after my  birthday I was diagnosed with MS. It was of course a hard pill to swallow at first. Leaving me with tons of questions, feelings and followed by a bout with depression. After speaking with a few friends in the industry that also have it , a new mind set settled in . Several folks said well, you can sit on this, and keep it to yourself or you can use the platform you have and help educate and raise awareness . Which is exactly what i did after finding out the  National MS Foundation had a walk here in Nashville in a couple weeks. I started a team, spread the word and myself and two friends did the Walk in the snow and raised just under $1300 in 2 weeks. Next year I will make a MUCH bigger impact. You can donate at anytime to my team here Not MS’n Around 

Not long after this my dear friend Debra Muller introduced me to an amazing woman in the UK , Natalie Loren Conway. Natalie is the head of TAG PUBLICITY EUROPE , and graciously took me on as a client . Over the course of the month Natalie has put together a press release about me, and shared it globally. Since it’s release she has received numerous requests for interviews which has resulted in almost 30 interviews already. Over the next few weeks they will start appearing on radio,blogs, television and more. She has also secured me a new endorsement with Heavy Leather NYC. We are currently working designing signature Chad Lee Photography leather camera strap . I will post more about that as it moves along, and when and where you can order one.

Below are several links to some of the interviews that have posted so far.

Dead Daisies Recording studio photos posted

Dead Daisies

Back in February of this year I had the   pleasure of spending a month in the recording studio with The Dead Daisies. documenting  the recording process of their new album Make Some Noise. If you are not already familiar with the band,   check them out for some great rock and roll  . The band is currently made up of John Corabi, Doug Aldrich, Brian Tichy, Marco Mendoza and David Lowy, a true all star line up. Bands that the members of The Daisies have been a part of include : Motley Crue, Union , Whitesnake, Dio , Billy Idol, Foreigener, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent and more !

Through the course of the recording,  daily video updates from the studio were done for social media promotion, as well as interviews and fan questions with the band members.

You can view those on the bands official YouTube channel here:   Recording studio videos .

Here is one of my favorites from the fan question as Tichy takes a question from Daisies superfan Doug Aldrich, and yes we filmed this in one take Brian Tichy answers a question from Doug Aldrich

Disturbed photo galleries updated with 30 shows from 2002 – 2016. 

Over the past 16 years I have been fortunate enough to watch a few guys from Chicago gain huge success. I am proud to call the guys friends and family. Having done over 100 shows from 2001 to current date. Images in the gallery include Mayhem fest , Ozzfest , Uproar Fest, Rock On the Range and others.  

 The band has released six studio albums, five of which have consecutively debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Only two other artists have achieved this Dave Mathews and Metallica. To this day the guys are all as humble as they were on their first Ozzfest tour in 2000.
