VENREZ Wants To Tell Us What Happens On Tour With Buckcherry & Hardcore Superstar!
This in reality, had nothing to do with me but I said it was ok to say it was me for myth building purposes. On the other hand, my respect for the one of us who it was has just skyrocketed! (Alex, your ED)
> So this weeks take is of us rolling into Manchester and deciding to splurge on rooms for all. Alex hits his bed and shortly after passing out, dreams of people & a party going on in his room. He then proceeds to jump out of bed, walk out into the hall way of the hotel, enter a maintenance room where he skillfully emptied his bladder on the floor. Then walks back to his room and knocks on the door only to discover the piss sleep walk!!! Standing there in nothing but his underwear, he has to take the elevator down to the lobby, full of people, to get another room key from the front desk, wearing nothing but his skivy’s!!!!! Rock N Roll lives!!!
Entry # 3 from Alex Kane
Nov 10, Cologne, Germany
The editor of this truly magnificent website has asked if I’d supply pictures to go along with the words but, honestly, this is one instance where he’d thank me for not.
So, last night, third song, swear to God, the one pair of stage pants I brought with split going commando. So, Im on stage in Cologne, with my literally see through Handle XOX guitar (google XOX Audio Tools, The Handle for the visual) with my dick just fully swinging and a bouncin’ (and to say you’re not at your most girthy when your sweating balls on stage is no understatement) all over Cologne, Germany. Now I see Dave, Stevie Decanay from Buckcherry’s guitar tech on the side of the stage. Stevie, whom I go waaaaaaaaay back to Chicago with, is not only an awesome awesome player, singer and performer, has also let Dave know, as we dont tour with a tech, to “Help Alex with anything he needs.” So, as Dave is as awesome Stevie is awesome, Im yelling “Dave! Dave! DAVE! My dick is out.” In the midst of the volume and whatevs, he thinks Im calling him a dick and comes on stage. So to try to explain my dilemma is a non started so I move the guitar outta the way (Im behind the amp line now) and show him my tiny, withered cock protruding from my black jeans for contrast. After the look of horror leaves his face, I see the wheels turning and he goes “hang a sec.” Like I had a choice. He comes back super fast with a roll of black gaffer and starts slapping it on my cock and balls (proud to say we needed three strips). But Im a sweaty fuck so, the gaffer comes off my trousers in no time and just stays attached to my fuckin’ dick, right. So the last 25 minutes of a 40 minute set, my dick is hanging out with an elephant trunk of black gaffer hanging off it. Literally everyone at the gig other than the dudes Im on stage with saw my dick. THEN, and yes there’s more, I need to pull the tape of my penis when I’m heading to merch, which I do and today while urinating, I notice the big black and blue bruise where it had adhered to Mr. Happy breaking blood vessels when I pulled it off. I ended up selling the pants for 50 Euros on the merch stand. Good times on tour…unless you’re me!!!

November 7th 2013
Lemme preface this “entry” by saying both of these men grabbed me and forced me to kiss them lest they share their true feelings publicly about Ven. I did it for the band and their iron clad grips on my shoulders are my proof. I’m still black and blue from Alice Cooper’s vice like hold. Plus, I ain’t the one smilin’. Alex Kane
Well highlights of this week were Alex keeping his gallery of kissing rock stars on going by adding the lead singer of Hardcore Superstar to his Alice Cooper trophy kiss wall of tour hi jinks . All the members of Hardcore have been uber cool and warm to us from day one! They rock hard on stage and are a pleasure to hang with. Stevie from Buckcherry has been awesome to me. He walked right up to me right after I came off stage of the first show in Hamburg and shook my hand and told me great show!!!! I haven’t met any other of their band members yet. Cracked my left front tooth at dinner before the second gig in Vosselaar, Belgium, but found a dentist the next day to patch it up nicely for $250.00 Euros. I always wonder what stupid drama awaits me every tour. Seems it’s always some stupid shit. So this tour, cracked tooth out of the way early! Tonight we rock Cologne, Germany for gig #3 and the first of 3 in a row.

Entry #1 from Steven Berez & Alex Kane
Holy shit final rehearsal yesterday was beyond off the fuckin charts. Alex and Jason are just shredding it on guitar, Mike was driving the bass and Eddie was shear animal on drums. I can’t wait for the first show in Hamburg, Germany on the 5th. We hit such a groove by the last show of our tour with Slash this July in Las Vegas. And it was like fuck it’s over, really!!! My gut tells me we are gonna melt some faces and kiss alot a babies this entire run!!!! Just finished packing after hours of figuring out what to take, not take & all those trips to the scale to make sure my suitcase is under 52 lbs. Hey I dig the free drinks they give us on Lufthansa but can ya not hammer us humble rockers with over weight baggage charges!!! Hahaha!!!! Friends knocking at the door right now all wanting to share wine and make their well wish goodbyes, so I am sure I will be up all night and hopefully sleep all the way to Germany on the long ass flight tomorrow. Extra security at LAX due to a wack job killing a TSA agent and spraying the terminal with gunfire. So gettin there early and plenty of time for hang over bloody Mary’s if it’s a long ass wait to board. My German friends told me to burp loudly into the mic on stage, then immediately make this chug back a beer hand gesture to my forehead and shout out real loud the words SCHULTZ!!! They said all the fans would love it! I hope they weren’t fuckin with me!!! Well we plan to blow dry their hair & burn all the paint off the walls with our in your face rock n roll regardless. Hide the women & children VENREZ is coming!
