StreetWarrior "Shot" Heard Loud And Clear...
[South Brunswick Band Helps Boy]:
" When you are from the streets , you never forget , and when ever you do manage to step off the streets , you always remember to go back and take care of the ones you left temporarily behind " ...
These are the words carved in stone by the NJ StreetWarrior , during a rare brief interview recently.
What makes the words of the StreetWarrior so special , is the fact that here is a little underdog
local New Jersey street band that sincerely "Pays-It-Back" to the streets, even though money is very tight for the band themselves.
So, big deal , we've all heard it before right...But this is a very special "From da Heart" story , and this is what Jerseyians find unique
in the StreetWarrior:
- Recently, StreetWarrior had heard about a 10 year old boy , who had sadly lost his loving Dad to a very rapid case of cancer here in NJ. The loss was like an overnight, a take you by surprise thing , that took the boy's father before anyone could even begin to accept this illness had struck...
The Grim-Reaper came , he struck , and then he conquered - the boy was crushed and the father he once knew and loved was now forever gone , only to live in his little ten year old heart forever on...
Meantime, on the other side of the NJ rainbow, StreetWarrior is busy cutting out a few little checks to some local NJ charities , and handing out "5 Holiday Turkeys" donated to needy Hungry families during this Thanksgiving and Christmas season. At the same time StreetWarrior is sweating over that new expensive Marshall Amp they really need , for like the past year or so.
At the end of the day, a local friend informs StreetWarrior about the little boy's loss and sad situation, and here is where I was so taken back by what StreetWarrior did next , that tears simply fell from my eyes when it happened...
StreetWarrior Stops dead in his tracks, stares at the array of guitars, drums, and other StreetWarrior instruments, walks up to an old ebony black "Les Paul", then picks it up and says:
"I can not save da world , for I can not even save myself at times,
But I can make someone's life a little better with the little things I have to give"..." Take this "Les Paul" that is my-ol-friend -of- minze", "and bring it to this little boy"... " It will help ease some of the pain , and channel some of his sorrow and sadness into music and help him relate to music when he thinks of his lost father in the future and as life goes on for him, let him learn and play da guitar and turn this tragedy into a new world and a new fresh start for himself"..."That any music he plays will soothe and comfort his broken heart"...
And with those StreetWarrior words,
the Les Paul was delivered to the little boy , and a brand new in-the-box- "Marshall" amp was thrown in as well , paid for out of the StreetWarrior's own pocket...
To this date, StreetWarrior has never met the little boy, nor never met the boy's father either.
- The boy does however, write to StreetWarrior from time to time, and the words "Thank You" are always included in the little boy's notes to the StreetWarrior.
And to date StreetWarrior is okay with the fact that they never got to purchase that new expensive Marshall Amp they've been needing for the band - but one thing StreetWarrior is sure of , that there is a little boy out there who has a new marshall amp , and a Les Paul guitar, and in the mist of tragedy and pain , StreetWarrior was able in it's own special way to bring smiles and some good into da streets of New Jersey.
As StreetWarrior loses his old friend the black ebony Les Paul guitar he's had since he was a kid himself , He smiles knowing that it is now in the hands of someone who really can use it and who needs it.
And the 5 donated turkeys to needy hungry NJ families , and the checks written to local charities , are simply just another StreetWarrior story in itself.
As StreetWarrior : Always "Pays-It-Back"...
and this was definately a "Shot" heard loud and clear , here in Jersey Land..."StreetWarrior Territory"...

Like a Ghost in the wind, we do not see the StreetWarrior,

StreetWarrior is definately and rightfully worthy of being
in the public's eye...and has earned a degree of respect

HighWays and ShoreWays of NJ....

Paris By Air Sells 100 CDs Online
Miami-based popsmiths Paris By Air has just sold its 100th CD online at MP3.com. While the achievement might have been seen as a failure by the band's former hitching post -- Sony's Columbia Records -- the band's self-promoted discs have the band buzzing.
"We made more money selling 100 CDs on MP3.com than we did selling 35,000 through a major label," says programmer and vocalist Willie Cleer.
Along with lead singer Teri Gil and keyboardist-songwriter Rick Munarriz, the band is getting ready to release its fifth online CD -- All Mixed Up -- and has plans to hit the recording studio next year to produce all-new tracks for its sixth MP3.com release.
Interview requests and contact information can be found at ParisByAir.com.
