Listen to Billy Joel’s classic tune “New York State of Mind” and it’s sure to evoke very different responses from fellow New Yorkers as to what constitutes theirs. Mine came a few nights ago in the form of two of my favorite entertainers: one of the greatest actors of our time and one of the pioneers of thrash metal.
The one and only Robert DeNiro, a New Yorker, shared a photo with fellow NYers Anthrax. I have to say I completely nerded out at the awesomeness of seeing two of my favorites sharing a pic together.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
