Dylan Rieder - Love and Aloha, Brother...

LOVE AND MISS YOU, DYLAN...

FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS

DYLAN RIEDER

May 26, 1988 - October 12, 2016 

These photos below were from our brother, Kenny Brimer's Celebration Of Life Memorial on Oahu, Hawaii in 2010. Mark Oblow always shared his home island with Dylan and it became his second home.  At that time, Dylan came to pay his respects with Oblow for Kenny, who passed from his own battle with Leukemia.  Dylan is and always will be an island braddah... and both he and Kenny are already ripping, Together Together.

Tommy Guerrero's New Album, "Perpetual" Available October 30, 2015

Tommy Guerrero continues to expand his horizons while upholding his San Francisco Bay heritage. Starting from the Bones Brigade skate team in the 80’s, he has gone on to make movie appearances, design for Levi’s in Japan, Vans shoes worldwide, Sutro eyewear (among others), sign a skateboard contract with Converse, co-found Real Skateboards and 40’s Clothing and become art director for Krooked Skateboarding, along with maintaining a prolific recording schedule.

Tommy’s intent for Perpetual is “to strip the tunes down and create more of an atmosphere than being concerned with writing ‘songs’... The other idea [is] to abandon the damn computron and record everything on my Tascam 388 1/4" 8 track tape machine. The limitations with an old tape deck were welcomed with open arms - … I gotta say this is one of my faves and hope people will connect with what I [am] trying to convey. Music is all about an emotional response for me... I hope it resonates with you in a positive way.”

Tommy’s music has been heard in commercials for Mt Dew, DC Shoes, Sony Bravia, Pocari Sweat, Clif Bars, Freixenet, Miller Lite and more; in HBO’s Bored To Death, Bones Brigade, Sprout, Red Bull’s Creators of Tomorrow, All Things Must Pass, Todd Oldham’s Hand Made Modern, etc

THIS ALBUM IS A CONTINUATION OF THE JAPAN VERSION “PERPETUUM”.
[ART BY CHRIS JOHANSON]

I HAVE A SHORT RECORD RELEASE TOUR PLANNED SOUTH IN EARLY NOV.
