Brook Lee Catastrophe At The House Of Blues

The Brook Lee Catastrophe landed a gig at the House of Blues Sunset Strip on March 1, 2008. Security was strict and no recording or photos were allowed, but someone bootlegged this video of Brook's new song "Hey Joe". For this song The Catastrophe "frisbeed" out tambourines to the crowd. Even Ryan caught one.

Rock Racing - Here To Stay

Rock Racing professional cycling team is sponsored by Michael Ball, designer and CEO of Rock & Republic, home of $250 denim jeans.
With controversy and style, the team sports a variety of cycling kits.
Cadillac, the support vehicle of Rock Racing.

The 2008 Rock Racing roster includes two former world champions, two Olympic gold medalists, four Tour de France stage winners and eight current and former national champions. All directed by Michael Ball to "win-or-get-fired". Speaking of controversy, check out rider David Clinger. I think he got fired?

So the other day I'm riding home on PCH and came upon this rider. Member of Rock Racing? He was awfully fast. I also saw the Team's 35 ft. rig traveling west on 7th street.

I thought, in honor of Sheldon Brown, I'd do a ride in his kit.
