Cazzy the Alien (BIO)
Cazzy is an alien guitarist… one of two surviving aliens from the now infamous UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Cazzy started his interest in music playing drums and doing percussion. After that he moved onto DJ’ing Vinyl. This was in the 1970’s into the 80’s before many of today’s DJ’z were even born!. In Cazzy wordz…”I waz watching thiz documentary on DJ Frankie Bones DJing in NYC…and I realized….Yeah…I remember DJ’ing in the 70’s in New York….and also seeing Madonna at The Fun House..asking the DJ’z to play her stuff…and also remember getting some of the first few rap records….”Sugar Hill Gang” “Kurtis Blow” in brown paper bag….lol…Anyway, I don’t DJ anymore…I guess you could say I went from DJ’ing to being a dancer…(The best I got dancing was second place with a prize of $250 and a bottle of champagne. Some Arthur Murray Dance Studio peepz came up to me and asked if I wanted to teach in their studios…I told them…”No Thank you!”) So, Then I went into being a rock and roll singer in a rock band….then I started playing guitar…and came around full circle…playing guitar with DJ’z…..and boy! Am I dizzy!”)
After having been a DJ for almost 15 years, Cazzy started singing. He went on to sing in two different rock bandz, “Noyz-R-Us” a Jimi Hendrix cover band, and then “Messiah” and alternative Rock band. Cazzy then moved onto playing guitar. Cazzy toured playing guitar with the late deaf drummer, Shawn Dale Barnett, who played and lived briefly with Alice in Chains’ lead singer, Layne Staley. Cazzy is known for selling Jimi Hendrix’s guitar strap from the 1969 Woodstock Festival at Sotheby’s Rock and Roll memorabilia auction house in New York city. Cazzy had one of his songs included in the Horror film, “The Night Owl”, which is part of an indie Horror DVD 4-pack called, “Wicked Intentions” available at Sam Goody,Renco,Best Buy, and Amazon.com. Cazzy went to Orlando, Florida briefly to play music and network. Accidentally, (or maybe not) Cazzy ended up opening one night for Billy Joel’s long time drummer, Liberty Devitto and his band “The Funk Club”. (“One of the koolezzt, mozt un-ego-tiztical “ztarz” I’ve ever met! Hellaziouz drummer too!”)
Although he loved the many talented musicians he met in Orlando,Florida, one day he actually came home to find his girlfriend of 10 years dead on the toilet bowl from a heroin overdose…her eyes still wide open.(She started with pain pills…she was in much pain) The reason why Cazzy calls his guitar…”The Haunted Alien Bluez Axe”??…”because my ex-girlfriend painted the alien murals on it with nail polish…a week before I found her dead”… (Hence, the reason why some people say Cazzy is insane.) He is not insane. Just wary of some humans now. Some people have emailed Cazzy asking whether or not that is his late girlfriends’ voice one hears on the track, “Zoomin’ with a Dead Girl”…the answer is yes. Now when Cazzy first wrote the song, “Go Away”, he played it for his late girlfriend on acoustic, since he had written it for her…these were the words she would tell him everyday…she was in constant pain. (She was run over by a guy in a pick-up truck as she was crossing the street going to a Christmas Play). Upon hearing the song on acoustic guitar, she broke down in tears. She never lived to hear the finished studio version.
After that traumatic morning in Orlando, Cazzy headed back to New York to try and clear his head. While in New York, Cazzy did have another “memorable” jam session at Budd Lake, N.J. one evening…where also…(Unplanned) he ended up jammin guitar with none other than Kenn Moutenot, drummer extraordinaire with Buddy Miles and currently touring with Deodato, and playing bass? None other than Charlie Torres, Rick Derringer’s long-time touring bassist. It was only a two song set…(doing Jimi’s “Red House” and “Wild Thing”), however…quite a kool moment!
Cazzy haz gone through many things trying to pursue his muzic and love for muzic.Trying to perform as “The Alien” he has been jumped after a gig, he’s been put on the roster absolutely last when everyone had left, he had a can a beer thrown athis head, (Which after it stopped fizzing, he drank). He also had his guitar chord cutone time five minutes before a show. Thankfully, he was lent another guitar chord by one of the members of the Rock Group, “Sea Monster” of New York.
Cazzy also had the dubious honor of being a “wheel man”, bodyguard, and close friend of the REAL Sonny from the movie “A Bronx Tale”. He used to keep quiet about that…but being that Sonny has since passed away…he doesn’t care anymore who knows. (Ed Note: You can see a video of Cazzy’z last visit in the hospital to see Sonny on his You Tube page. Http://www.youtube.com/cazzyalien )Eventually, Cazzy started playing guitar with DJ’z. (Everything comez full circle doesn’t it?) He played guitar with DJ’s doing Psy-Trance,Chill, Drum ‘n Bass, Happy Hardcore, Dubstep, House, Fidget, you name it. Cazzy haz performed with many DJ’s such as:PsYncus Founder, Composer, Producer Christopher Peter Vanderessen-New York,Deyo-Rapper/Producer-New York, DJ Cub-Orlando, DJ Cyber-Texas, DJ Aeon Miller-Orlando, Rapper/McFreak Rodriguez-Orlando, DJ Nye (Matt Black)-Atlanta, DJ Reddman-Atlanta, DJ Logic… DJ Logic played in the group “Yohimbe Brothers” with Vernon Reid of Living Colour.(Cult of Personality?) Actually, it was during one of DJ Logic’s gig’s at an “after-hours” club on Hunter Mountain,N.Y., after Mountain Jam, that Mike Gordon of “Phish” came up and told Cazzy he was “wailin”.
Cazzy has recently moved…From New York to Dallas, Texas to Orlando, Florida,(To clear out the skeletons in the closet) then….Cazzy moved to the mountains of North Georgia, then to Tennesee and then to Oklahoma.
