Jason McMaster gets his due: a star on the South Texas Music Walk Of Fame

Heavy metal screamer Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys, Broken Teeth) is set to make Texas history, as the first metal artist honored by the ‘South Texas Music Walk Of Fame’ in his hometown of Corpus Christi.

A vocalist, bassist, guitarist, and songwriter with two gold-certified records under his belt, McMaster is notorious for being one of the busiest musicians in rock and roll. His rock and roll resume dates back to 1982, when he fronted influential progressive metal band Watchtower, later moving on to make headlines with the southern sleaze rock act Dangerous Toys. In recent years, Jason has been channeling his talent into the Austin-based hard rock act Broken Teeth, having released five albums since the band’s formation in 1999; along with two albums from his NWOHB influenced band Ignitor, and various tribute bands. His impact on the Texas rock and metal scene was previously recognized in 1998, with an induction into the Texas Music Hall Of Fame.

The South Texas Music Walk of Fame honors six new Texas artists every year, in a ribbon-cutting ceremony that kickstarts the annual WaterStreet Market Music & Arts Festival in Corpus Christi, Texas. McMaster will officially be inducted in June 2011.

Jason is currently finishing up a tour of the midwest with Broken Teeth before embarking on Shiprocked, alongside other rock acts including Vince Neil, Cinderella, Tesla, and Sevendust. Shiprocked will set sail from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on November 11-14, 2010 onboard the MSC Poesia. This year’s cruise will feature two Bahamas port stops in both Nassau and the amazing private island of Coco Cay Bay.

Review and pics by Robert Williams

The NAMM show is an industry only conference for music retailers, one of the biggest music related conventions in the world, 2nd only to the Frankfurt Musikmesse, so I’m told. Music retailers come from all around the world to make connections and network with their peers, showcase their new products, and attend NAMM classes that teach industry secrets on how to improve business for music retailers.
