Good news for those waiting on the Soundgarden book Photofantasm – Nudedragons to King Animal. We are also dedicating the book to one of Soundgarden’s most loyal fans and Knights in memory of Tiffany Patterson Gross. Many of us knew her well, her courageous battle with Cancer, in addition to how generous Chris and Vicky Cornell, their family, and team were to Tiffany. We will work with the Foundation we are donating the proceeds to and figure out what portion will be dedicated to a cancer cause in her name. The details of this are being worked on and will be announced when the book comes out this year. The book has always opened with Tiffany’s photos in the first Nudedragon chapter but we are including a special moment’s section as well. The book has been delayed for several reasons, this being one of them plus we are doing a redesign of the layout. For us personally we had a great deal of grief last year due to loss and we want to be in the right frame of mind to complete the book. The plan is the latter part of 2014. Thank you for your enthusiasm and patience.

SEATTLE, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Alternative Country Rock band Guns of Nevada is excited to perform at Live Nation and ACM Promoter, Brian O’Connell’s, inaugural Watershed Music Festival.

WATERSHED MUSIC FESTIVAL Press Release
SEATTLE, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Guns of Nevada, a Seattle based band with musical influences ranging from Social Distortion to The Rolling Stones, has launched their latest album “SONGS IN THE KEY OF WHISKEY.” The first single off the album, “My Bible and My Gun,” can be heard here.
With two albums under their belt, Guns of Nevada consists of four veterans of the Seattle music scene: Earle Thunders, lead vocalist and guitar; Ted Walker, bass and vocals; John Holme, drums and vocals; and Scott Riley, guitar. Their first release was mastered by legendary Seattle producer and icon, Jack Endino, who is well known for his work with Mudhoney, Soundgarden and Nirvana. Also to their credit, Guns of Nevada music has been featured in three independent films and on the CMT reality show, “The Chopper Challenge.”
Spoondog Entertainment Group recently signed Guns of Nevada and is now representing them as management. According to Thunders, “We are thrilled to be partnering with the team at Spoondog Entertainment Group. With the release of our new album, ‘SONGS IN THE KEY OF WHISKEY,’ our upcoming debut arena show and opening for national acts this year, we couldn’t be happier. We’re looking forward to new songs and bigger and better shows.”
Experiencing Guns of Nevada live is where you’ll see them shine, whether playing to standing room only crowds in the heart of the club scene or energizing crowds in rural settings. “Although Guns of Nevada is classic rock and roll fun, we think they have a distinct sound — a unique blend of Cowpunk, Americana, and Roots Rock. Their flavor of music is inspired by timeless bands like The Clash, Social Distortion, the Ramones and even AC/DC,” says manager, Jaye English, of Spoondog Entertainment Group.
2012 will be a pivotal year for Guns of Nevada. In addition to their new album, they are gearing up to hit the road for numerous performances throughout the year including opening for Great White March 31st at the Backstage Bar in Tacoma, WA, playing at the Comcast Events Center May 12th in Everett, WA, and headlining at The Hard Rock Cafe May 18th in Seattle.
