Revolver Golden Gods Awards

For those of you that don’t know, I was nominated for Most Metal Athlete for Revolver’s Golden Gods awards at the Nokia Theater in LA. Sadly, I did not receive the award. However, it was a great honor to just be nominated and to be in the presence of so many rock legends. Walking the carpet with the likes of Alice Cooper, Geezer Butler, Vinnie Paul, Rob Zombie (I can’t even name them all), was a true pleasure. And it was great to see my fellow fighter, Josh Barnett in the house. Maybe one of these days an MMA athlete will take home the award! Also, finally got to meet Jamey Jasta from Hatebreed. Always loved his bands for training. A big shout out to him.

Many thanks to Revolver for the support and nomination and to all of you that voted for me!

Bannon for Deathwish, and combines the iconic visuals of Blood For Blood and Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy into one simple yet awesome apparel concept.

Pre-order now:
Deathwish Black version (T-Shirt and Hoodie):
Blood For Blood Red version:

To be from Boston is to have an affinity for Blood For Blood. Founded in the mid 90′s as a rough and tumble band, Blood For Blood violently shook Boston and ultimately the world, from its deep hardcore sleep. In their first formidable years Blood For Blood bonded together hardcore kids, punks, skinheads, bikers, and other social misfits through their gruff working class songs. Establishing an underdog legacy that is now over fifteen years deep and still going strong.

Blood For Blood songwriter and visionary Rob Lind recently stated “…I am presently hoarding the biggest glut of material in my life. And I can’t wait to get to work on it.” If that’s any indication, a new chapter of outlaw anthems are looming on the horizon.

Blood For Blood are scheduled to play dates in the U.S. and Europe throughout 2011. Blood For Blood 2011 consists of the longtime core of Buddha, guitarist Rob Lind, and bassist Ian McFarland, along with drummer Neal Dike. Special guests Billy Graziadei (Biohazard) and Craig Silverman (Only Living Witness) will lend their guitars to live shows in Lind’s absence from the stage due to personal reasons.

DAN “The Outlaw” HARDY

Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy is a world renowned Mixed Martial Artist from Nottingham, England.

Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy is not just a fighter, but also a avid fan of the Punk and Hardcore scene, and even boasts a Blood For Blood tattoo. Marching to the beat of his own drum, Hardy became a professional fighter in 2004, establishing himself in Japan and England. Carrying a brash attitude and hardcore spirit, Hardy became the final Welterweight and Light-Welterweight champion for the respected Cage Warriors promotion. In 2008, he made his debut for the UFC, taking a decision win against the Japanese star Akihiro Gono. Although Hardy was considered an underdog in most fights, he went on a tear within the UFC, racking up five high profile wins in a row. This earned Hardy a title shot against Welterweight Champion and “pound for pound” king, George St. Pierre. Hardy went the distance with the champion, giving him the fight of his life for five stellar rounds.

Since then, Hardy has continued to fight for the UFC as a fan favorite and warrior for common people everywhere.

And sometimes it’s about giving…

I just wanted to thank everyone that was able to join me for my after party at El Corazon. We were able to raise about $2000.00 for the West Memphis 3 Legal Defense Fund. Without help from the people that donated, this case would not be able to continue to be open for a fair trial. I am so happy that I have such great fans willing to give their money to such a noble cause.

Today I was reminded that sometimes it’s about giving. We received an email from Lorri Davis, Damien Echol’s wife:

“Dear Dan:
I’ve been informed of the wonderful things you’ve been doing to help the Defense Fund - and to spread the word about this injustice. I can’t thank you enough for taking time out of your busy schedule, and for being so very generous. The funds you raised will go toward preparation for the hearing in December. We have much work to do, and not much funding to do it, so your support couldn’t have come at a better time.

Thanks again for everything, and good luck out there! Most sincerely, Lorri Davis & Damien Echols”

Thank you Lorri and Damien for being an inspiration and a reminder that in bleak times there is always a light to guide us home. I am truly humbled by your dedication and perseverance.

The West Memphis 3 still needs our help. To donate, please go to the WM3 website
