News :: Zilla takes a bite out of “The Big Apple!

Earlier this year Ronzilla landed in New York on February 9th...the same day in which The Beatles made their legendary American debut from New York when performing on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. Zilla not only had the opportunity to take a taste of New York but a very Monster size bite of everything it had to serve up. Zilla couldn’t make the visit complete without stopping by to see one of New York’s more famous residents...Lady Liberty! After seeing her in all her glory Ron made a stop at Ellis Island where his grandfather had arrived almost a hundred years ago when coming to America from Italy. “It was surreal! I’ve seen The Statue of Liberty before but Ellis wasn’t open at that time and the ferries didn’t even take you near it. It was very moving to stand there on the boat arriving at Ellis and seeing and hearing the same thing Pappa did so long ago. When I arrived back at port I had only 15 minutes to get clear across town to a meeting I had at McFarlane Toys (Todd Mcfarlane’s company...creators of Spawn and world renowned toy manufacturer). For those of you who’ve been to New York, would you believe it if I told you I made it on time? Well, I did and it was only thanks to one of NYC’s finest cabbies! This ended up being a very cool day...Bruce Dickensen from Iron Maiden fame was at McFarlane and Zilla was extremely excited to finally meet the legendary John Zazula (Johnny Z as the industry knows him)...President of Megaforce Records and Crazed Management. “This is the man responsible for discovering, managing, signing, and producing Metallica. He’s basically the sole reason that their the global entity they are today and here we stood talking about Monsterus, the new album...and he’s excited...very cool!” Zilla would then head back to his hotel in Times Square only to arrive outside MTV midday just as TRL was going live ‘on the air’. While making his way out on the town that night Zilla was approached by a girl who worked for David Letterman who invited him to a taping of “The Late Show”. “Timing was everything!”, Zilla said, “Everything you’d want to have happen and more happened on this cool thing right after another! It was however hard sitting their in ‘The Ed Sullivan Theater’ during Letterman without thinking of everything that has happened there...The Beatles legendary February 9, 1964 performance that changed music forever...Elvis’ infamous performance filmed from the waist up...Jim Morrison’s and the Doors’ one and only performance with Ed...and the list goes on and on.” Zilla’s evening would wrap up as he made his way down a few blocks from his hotel to yet another rock-n-roll landmark...Radio City Music Hall. This is the place Stryper blew the roof off of on November 14, 1988 while on their ‘In God We Trust’ Tour...just a little trivia tidbit for anyone whose as crazy about them as Zilla.
