  1. Yep, I've seen it being spelled like that on old ads like 5-6 times. That's the most common misspelling. Sometimes it is even Greydays, without a space.
  2. Thanks to Ива Тошкова, I've got those pics and attached them to this post. The article has info on 3 show dates, but all of them are already in the guide. At least, we now know there likely weren't any shows in between those three. The pic with the Geckos' ad has no info to figure out the exact date, but that's the first time I hear about this venue/bar, so at least that's a clue to do more research. The pic with the Whisky A Go Go marquee is the most interesting one. The band was opening for Friik and Furbucket that night. Friik is the band John Dolmayan of SOAD used to play with and SOAD actually has a demo with the same name. Another friendly Phoenix band that almost entirely consisted of Sean Dowdell's relatives called Necessary Enemy played before Grey Daze. It is not clear why Grey Daze then listed again on the Marquee as Grey Days. Likely just a mistake.
  3. Awesome, thanks a lot for these! I was just looking for someone who has the book. Can you also, please, post some pictures of that magazine article that's also in the book, the photo of a venue marquee that says Grey Daze along with other bands, God's Afraid handwritten lyrics, etc? This thread is good for that.
  4. So knowing that according to several people Grey Daze split up shortly after their minitour to California that featured Coconut Teaszer and Whisky shows, I later found out the band played Coconut Teaszer in October, 1997 (it's in the guide) and this date doesn't really fit the narrative, so I've had to figure out if the band played there more than once. I know Sean is saying they played in LA/Hollywood multiple times in his book, but having nobody else ever saying anything like that, I needed someone else to fact check it. I've asked the band manager at the time Kerry Rose: "I think we went to LA twice, although my memory is a little fuzzy on the details. I remember us doing several showcases primarily for record label people, but can’t remember where or when. The Whiskey show was definitely a highlight show from our time there. I remember another really great show we did on the campus of UCLA too"
  5. Thanks a lot, StaticXero. We will add the show as 1996.01.28 Tempe, AZ, Club Rio I'm slowly getting back on track after some time of absence, so I will answer everything I was asked about here and in PM's soon. I know there's some stuff I still should release. Anyway, here's a new clipping for 1993.05.02 SDAHF Library Cafe date:
  6. This photo from Sean's collection was recently posted on Grey Daze's social media. It is the band performing in Rally Kap Sports Bar in 1994. It is confirmed by Jonathan Krause, the following ones were taken the same day in Rally Kap: 1) Obviously, it's not this show: http://lplive.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=11757 2) Obviously, it's not the show with Tripping With Grace, since the flyer for that show has a photo from this photoshoot. 3) Someone in the comments for that Facebook post recalled seeing the band opening for Pelvic Meatloaf in Rally Kap and asked if it was taken that night. So, either it is that show or there were more than 3 shows in this venue. ********************************** We should add the show from my previous message to the guide as 1997.xx.xx Tempe, AZ, Electric Ballroom
  7. Added some very minor info to the guide: http://lplive.net/shows/db/2000andearlier/20000722 The show was presented by 98Rock radio station. The price of admission was only 98 cents. http://lplive.net/shows/db/2000andearlier/20000729 The band Chronic Groove also played the show. The tickets were available for free at www.1059thex.com. Not sure if it means it was a 105.9 radio show.

    STP Album

    From AltWire's interview with Rob: "AW: You worked on and recorded several songs with Chester in 2015. Were any of those songs re-purposed for the new album with Jeff? Robert DeLeo: There were, but they were kind of ideas and they didn’t really get too far. Working on a new record with Chester was kind of a notion and it didn’t really go too far before he said he could no longer do STP. We got together and played some ideas and that was about it. So these ideas were sitting there for a couple of years"
  9. Prior to performing their first gig, Bucket Of Weenies rehearsed in a studio called Fortitude Studios (formerly Vintage Recorders) in Phoenix. There are a few photos of them hanging out in the studio (attached to this message). Should be added to the guide as: 2005.05.xx Phoenix, AZ, Fortitude Studios What's interesting is that the band was formed specifically to play that May 21st Club Tattoo show on that spot and they didn't even have a band name at the time. They weren't billed as Bucket Of Weenies on the gig's promo posters and flyers. The band was basically just Chester's backing band for his appearance at the event. It was promoted as "Linkin Park's Chester Bennington celebrating Club Tattoo's 10th anniversary". They liked playing together, so they stuck with each other and then spontaneously came up with the name during a radio interview.
  10. I posted the last full show yesterday, so the downloads are coming pretty soon: https://www.facebook.com/realgreydaze/posts/2086531031578601
  11. Posted the full video of that show on the band's YouTube/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/realgreydaze/posts/2081032122128492 One more show and I'll post all of the videos as downloads on LPLive. I'll also include mp3's.
  12. 10 more copies confirmed to exist by various friends of Sean. In fact, according to the band's manager, 200 cassettes were manufactured, but nearly a hundred of them were destroyed because of the Arizona heat, so there are dozens of cassettes out there somewhere. Does it help to lower that goddamn price?
  13. Not yet, but I'll release it soon. ************************************** Photos courtesy of Sean Dowdell and Malaika Juliet Stuart: Castles N' Coasters show (one of the pics was posted before in a higher quality, but this version has a wider view) Whisky A Go Go show: Unspecified house party (the band performed at it, according to Sean): ************************************** Since we now have so much Grey Daze shows that are confirmed by ads and flyers in the guide, I'd like to minimize usage of shows that don't have an exact date. There's no reason to have some of them listed anymore. The first post of this thread is good enough for some of the information. I'd also like to add a page for one of the recordings I released along with Grey Daze Story and make some other corrections. Here's the full list of changes I'd like to make: Change dates for Whisky A Go Go and Coconut Teaszer shows from xxxx.xx.xx to 1998.xx.xx. Remove 1992.xx.xx Silver Dollar show from "Sean Dowdell & His Friends? shows". Remove the show the band opened for Seven Mary Three. It's possible it was actually in Electric Ballroom, not Gibson's nightclub. I'll add it to the first post of this thread, until we'll find the exact place/date. Add 1994.xx.xx Phoenix, AZ, McDowell Studios under "Gray Daze shows". We have a recording of the band doing "Come On", "Smoke Mouth", "Painted" and "Wake Me" at their rehearsal space. We''ll never find out the exact date, but there's no reason not to have it in the guide, since we have a recording, know the exact place, year and lineup (Chester, Sean, Jonathan and Steve, confirmed by Chester on the recording).
