Craig Locicero, guitarist & songwriter for the Bay Area thrash band FORBIDDEN and co-host of the Omega Wave Podcast, attended the Occupy Oakland demonstration on November 2nd and inaugurated a special video episode of the Omega Wave Podcast.  View the footage here.

“I’m here to ask questions,” states Locicero in his introduction.  “I don’t really have any answers… but I can tell you this much, in my opinion, and the one thing I know for fact: this is better than sitting on your ass and complaining about the world.”

People interviewed in this 43-minute segment include:

 

  • Rabbi Lerner from SpiritualProgressives.com
  • Haroon, an injured protestor
  • Rick, a carpenter & union worker
  • Mary, a retired schoolteacher who works with the Oakland Education Association
  • Musicians Allen & Barry, members of Contrast The Water from South Africa
  • Winston Burton from B.O.S.S.
  • Calvin, an Occupy Oakland attendee

 

Craig Locicero, Bill Shields, and Jeff Schenck of Metalluminati.com (co-collaborators & producers of the audio/video versions of the Omega Wave Podcast) are currently seeking another producer/talent booker to assist with the show.  If you are interested, please contact Bill Shields at Barbedwirebill@gmail.com.

 

FORBIDDEN recently announced the addition of new drummer Sasha Horn into their ranks.  The band’s Omega Wave album debuted at #27 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, #83 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums chart, and #92 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart the week following its October 2010 release.
