Been locked up tight working on CD number 5, and I'm getting ready to release a video for a new song dedicated to all my friends called "Wrecking Crew". The video will feature pictures of friends I've made from all over the world, and I'd like all of you (that want to get your 15 seconds of fame) to be a part of it with me! Here's the skinny from my website:
Dear Fellow Metalheads and members of the Wrecking Crew:
I want you to be a part of my video for the song “Wrecking Crew”! Recording has started on the next Johnny Lokke
cd, and to kick it off I have a new song dedicated to all of you, and want you to be a part of it. If you are interested in joining me, I ask that you send me a hi-quality digital picture of yourself holding a WHITE SIGN on which you have WRITTEN IN BLACK MARKER:
Your City, State, Country (or any of the three...example: London, England)
I ask that in your picture you make sure you are close enough to make your sign easily read. If you have a landmark, stand in front of it! Use your imagination.
If you know others that might be interested in participating, please SHARE THIS INVITATION with friends or family wherever they may be across the world.
Once you’ve taken your picture, EMAIL IT TO email@example.com
by 03/25/07. We are hoping to premiere the video April 1 on YouTube and Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/johnnylokke
) as well as johnnylokke.com, so the deadline will be strictly enforced. I will try and use all the entries I get, but if I can’t I will use them in the order they were sent in, so be sure and act fast!
I am truly excited about this project and look forward to having you in my video! Keep it LOUD!
P.S. - Please read all the legal speak below before sending in your picture(s).
