LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!!! - September 8, 2007
Busy, busy, busy!!! I have so much going on right now I can't see straight. It's all good though! The logistics of the video shoot of "DEATH ANGEL" are still being juggled about due to the weather. Mr. DeLa O has some great ideas for each scene he wants. From what he's let me in on, it should be a great vid. The locations are familiar to me and the concept as he has explained is totally clear in my mind. Now if this Texas weather and my own hectic life will permit, we'll get this sucker on tape!!!!
The play-list for my upcoming release continues to grow. I still have a few more tunes to write, record, mix, master, and upload to the main files, but all is falling into place nicely. This time around the songs are much heavier and I've really been stretching it with my horrid voice! I've done a bit of preliminary work on the graphics but nothing concrete yet. Malea Joy has given me an idea though.
A big warm hello goes out to all my great friends on all the social networks and every website I use these days!!! Without friends, life is empty.
FIST IN THE AIR FOR:
A.O.G.MEDIA, JESSE DELA O, TERRY DAUN, RALF (UNDER PRESSURE), ROY COSTON (LOVEBONE), GYPSY CARNS, KAMA LINDEN, RECONSIDERATE, RAY, BABY, LEAH, SLIKMETAL, LEIGHANNE, PATRICIA, Z, REVOLUTION UNLEASHED, KENNY THE GARDENER, LES LEWELLYN, UNSTEADY FREDDIE, AND ANY AND EVERY DJ PLAYING THE MUSIC OF MY FRIENDS AND I !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Victoria, Texas musician Jose’ Diaz has been doing his fret-board gymnastics since the age of 13. His brand of high-volume-guitar-fueled-hard-rock has dominated his music from the beginning. From a humble high school gym in the early eighties, to the bright lights of the Riverside Convention Center, the few times that he has stalked the stage have been memorable to those who witnessed him live and unrestrained. His tornado-like finger-ballets cover the entire guitar neck and then some. For Mr. Diaz it seems the end of the fret-board is no barrier. His playing is the true essence of being “loud and proud”.
Jose’ is currently recording tracks for his next full length release due out hopefully late on 2007. His juggling act of recording himself, mastering and performing on other artists works, coming up with new material, updating web pages, and a day job, is just the tip of his feverish mental iceberg. His music is available almost everywhere in the digital domain. And he adds new stores to his distribution belt as often as he can.
With five releases under his belt, each filled with blazing guitar work and thought provoking lyrics, he forges ahead with new material and increasing endeavors. His collaborators are many as well as the lists of websites where his music can be found. His works have appeared on several releases of the Compilation Series put out by A.O.G.MEDIA, and his guitar slinging has graced works by such artist as Terry Daun, and Jesse DeLaO, (the head of A.O.G.MEDIA). Some of the songs for A.O.G are even contractual “exclusives” found only on the media companies' releases. There is an unreleased work done with New York head bangers LOVEBONE and some online collaborations on Indabamusic.com. In addition to his collaborative works, Jose’ has appeared onstage recently with Jesse DeLaO as a guest guitarist for a CD release party for COMPILATION #7 from A.O.G. This was his first return to the stage in almost twenty-five years. On other fronts his songs have been played by radio and internet stations world wide and a current promotional push is underway in Australia.
The band he formed in high school left its mark on Jose’ and is reflected in how easily he creates music both with and without others involved. His studio is a minefield of lyric sheets and guitars, headphones and microphones. The band LEGASYS may no longer exist but Jose’ does. The music is still being born and that’s what drives him, the music.
Keep your ears peeled back for the next powerful offering from this secret of the gulf coast. The guitars will be loud and the songs will be proud!
On this much anticipated 5th release, Jose' Diaz comes at us from s slightly different angle. He shows us a bit more of a sensitive side while still retaining his "wall of guitar tone". These 13 tracks come from deep within and reach out with a poignant yet graceful mix of emotional wisdom. The subject matter ranges from a tribute to the heroes of 9/11 and beyond to all out instrumental bombardments of the senses. This is one for your collection. Don't let it pass you by.

series released through Victoria, Texas based A.O.G.MEDIA. The 7th of the series is
available and an 8th is in the making. More info on the entire series can be found at
These compilations feature artist and bands from around the world and give the
entire world in turn the chance to hear unique music that simply cannot be found in
the mainstream today. However, many of the acts featured on A.O.G. MEDIAs
compilations are on the verge of “breaking out”. This is a concrete testament to
their talent. They are winning contest and getting the recognition they deserve. This
is due in large part to the hard work of Jesse DeLaO, the founder of A.O.G. MEDIA
and the creator/producer of the COMPILATIONS SERIES. His diligence, along
the artist hard work, are achieving great results world wide.
Any lover of music should seek out their own copy of any of the compilation
releases. Each and every release is a worthy addition to ones music collection.
The collaboration of Jose’ Diaz and Jesse DeLaO goes far back in time to the
early 1980s. Jesses’ band then, Bois D’ Arc, featured Jose’ on lead guitar. The music
they created together has gone around the world and back, and to this day the two
enjoy working together.
