Memories of my childhood came flooding back in a rather unceremonious way recently when two of my onscreen heroes almost got into a real life tussle a few days ago.
Sam Jones, he of one of my all-time favorite movies “Flash Gordon” and Lou Ferrigno, he of one of my all-time favorite TV shows “The Incredible Hulk”, nearly mixed it up at this year’s Comic Con in London.
Part-Kudos/ Part-‘What Were You Thinking?!’ to the man who had the balls to step in before things got out of control between these two literal and figurative giants (both of whom stand well over 6 feet and tall are still packed with plenty of muscle).
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.
