Earlier in our lives together I told you about Moxxie Maddron and The Instigator, a movie that sounded a bit like the plot of a ZZ Top video. Well, I’ve finally seen the movie and I can tell you that parts are actually more like a Whitesnake video which, for my money (not that I paid for it), is a better value.
Of further interest is the soundtrack by the band Lynam, who have cleverly (or not so cleverly) claimed to be the children of Stevie Nicks and Ronnie James Dio. Since my real name is Ronnie James Dio, I found this factoid compelling. Turns out it’s not true and the band is shocked anyone believed the joke.
Not that this is a story of James Frey or JT LeRoy proportions, but in my defense I offer that the best thing about a band that would allow itself to be photographed air-playing on the back of a flatbed (The Instigator has a Lynam video as a bonus scene!) is that fake backstory. “Of course the rock and roll foster children of Ronnie James Dio and Stevie Nicks would be reduced to this,” I thought. At least I can still believe that Avy Lee Roth is DLR’s daughter.
