Thought we would share this great shot of The Misfits founder Jerry Only as we makes his way to the stage in full battle regalia. This shot is great as it details the back of his stage wear which you don’t always geta good look at during a live Misfits show.
If you are payinf attantion, you will see that the classic Misfits lineup of Jerry Only, Glenn Danzig and Doyle Von Frakenstein are booked for some major music festivals. The first is as soon as this October as they headline Aftershock 2021 in Sacemention California’s Discovery Park. This is a 3 day festival with Metallica closing the bill, bookeding The Misfits who preform on Saturday October 9th. As with anything that the Misfits do these days, this festival is 100% Sell Out.

Here’s a quick update of Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz® Production and Shipping.
The 1st wave of production actually wrapped at the end of March and began making it’s way to our USA warehouse. Sadly, it has been sitting on the container ship off the San Francisco Bay now for over a month waiting for a slot at the port to off load. Each day, we hope for a notice that we are cleared to doc at the port of Oakland, but we continue to wait. This is the frustrating part of our business, and especially so in the Covid-World as it’s the one thing we have no control over. All we can do is promise if to keep you updated the second it is released to go through US Customs and begin the short trip to our US warehouse.
The 2nd production wave of Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition Statues is also complete, but we got some unhappy news earlier this week about International ports. There has been a new Covid outbreak and work slow down there, so these Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz are now waiting there for our turn to load onto our Container ship to come to the US. This is why the title of this blog entry is “One step forward, two steps back.”
We know that all are exciting to get these new Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz and we will do everything we can to expedite the shipping process once we get the initial inventory checked in to our US warehouse. Make sure you are signed up for email alerts to get all the news.

As always…thanks for supporting KnuckleBonz and all the great music artists we work with.
Over the past 18 years of bringing the Rock Iconz® and 3D Vinyl® Series, we have only created a few ladies of rock. In 2017 and 2019 respectively, we released Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statues for Janice Joplin and Debbie Harry of Blondie. The teams are having meetings here at the KnuckleBonz Studios over the next couple of weeks to review new projects and the end of 2021 and next year. Ann and Nancy of Heart came up in the conversation after seeing some recent concert footage and going back to some live Heart band performances from 1977. They are amazing now and then…The Heart Live set from Cal Jam 2 is amazing if you have not seen it. Check it our below. We think it’s time to create some new lady rockers for our series for sure.
Sound off for the Ladies of Rock you would like to see KnuckleBonz create for you music Superfans around the world. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your wants and desires for your Rock Iconz…
If you have been paying attention, you might have caught glimpses of this since we announced our QUEEN Rock Iconz® Limited Edition Statues for Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon some weeks ago. The beloved metal behemoth that graces the cover of QUEEN’s News of the World album sparked by Rogers’s love of Sci-Fi and the cover of Astounding Science Fiction’s story by Tom Godwin, “A Gulf Between” is coming to our 3D Vinyl Series® this Fall.
We decided that this particular design would be better served by a full statute figure, rather than the 12X12 format we have used for other 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statues like Ozzy Osbourne’s Diary of a Madman or Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power. Excited to share that the statue is well into production for a very limited run in 2021. #staytuned here and via our email list for launch specifics.
As far back as 1975, Pink Floyd began a live tradition of their completely uniquely take on the “Mirror Ball”. The circular projection screen was in place, and to add to the live light show effects, the flower themed mirror ball was introduced. This is so Pink Floyd. It took on several forms all the way to the amazing live spectacle in 1994 for the Pink Floyd stadium tour in 1994 in support of the album “Division Bell.” The Floyd line up was David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason. The Floyd acrimony with Roger Waters was at it’s zenith.
Check out these live shots of this legendary “On Tour” live stage props. These still still shots are from the 1975 Wish You Were Hear, 1977 Animals and 1994 tours.
This live video of from 1994 Division Bell Tour. The Huge mirror ball morphed into a flower bloom during the performance of Comfortably Numb. Enjoy…”Wish You Were There”
Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz® Ltd. Edition Statue from KnuckleBonz® 1st Wave of Production is complete and on way to KnuckleBonz USA Warehouse.
This 1st wave of the 3000 unit Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statue production went well with only minor Covid disruptions. This our 3rd production of Randy Rhoads working directly with the Rhoads Family and Randy Rhoads Truest. The shot here in the Blog is from the very first days of performing live with Ozzy Osbourne 1981. The design has Randy in his red leather stage outfit w/ white shoes and almost still can see him looking at back for ques from Tommy Aldridge at Day on the Green at the Oakland Coliseum. Most of the Blizzard of Oz was played during these live sets. There were of course s smatteri9ng of Black Sabbath era songs to close the set.
Pre-Orders are super crazy on this one so it looks like we might have to go right on “back-order” after the 1st production wave hits our warehouse and goes out the the Randy Rhoads Superfans that have already pre-ordered.
On this day in 1959 Jerry Only was born in Lodi, NJ. He remains the “only” Misfits member to appear on all Misfits recordings and in live performances.
Jerry Only also has the distinction of being one of the few musical artists to step inside the WCW Wresting Ring to compete. Others like Alice Cooper appeared outside the ring as managers or accomplishes, but Jerry battled Dr. Death in the Steele cage back in 1999…can’t believe it’s been that long.
The Misfits continue to stun audiences and set records for sell-out performances. Here’s hoping the Post-Covid world will be treated to a new Misfits World Tour. We will be there!
Many KnuckleBonz® collectors have asked for a heads up any time one of our limited editions is about to Sell Out…be careful what you asked for. Posting here to let you know we are down to the last few units of the our GHOST Cardinal Copia Limited Edition Rock Iconz® Statue Variant designs. These were announced via our Email list last Friday. These are not only super rare because the are such a low production run, only 333 per design, but also because in our 18 year history we have done so few variants of any kind. These will be gone be end of day. You can add Paha Nihil and the Nameless Ghoul Guitar Players Rock Iconz to this “endangered list.”
New Cardinal Copia variant appears in his White Tux and Fedora versus the Black Tux in the original Rock Iconz design. The Cardinal Copia Cassock robes variant his black raiment versus the original SOLD OUT Red Cassock Ltd. Edition.
We think Tobias Forge and the GHOST Clergy may be opting for a 2022 re-emergence with Papa Emeritus IV in the same fashion that many large tours like QUEEN, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate have done. Over the last couple of weeks, all have pushed out touring due to continued Covid restrictions on live events worldwide. Sooo, what we have now in the KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz Series now is probably what you will get in 2021.
If you are paying attention, you will see we have silently launched variant designs for our original GHOST Cardinal Copia Rock Iconz® Statues. Cardinal Copia “White Tux” and Cardinal Copia “Black Cassock” are now shipping. We launched these via our opt in e-mailing list last Friday and the super limited edition of 333 per design is almost gone. Posting here for the faithful that follow GHOST and KnuckleBonz for 1st crack at the rare variant designs.
In 18 years, we have only done a very small number of variant designs. Jimi Hendrix is probably the most well known. We did a gray scale, color and bronze coated casting of our 1st Hendrix statue.
GHOST fans have been lobbying for more Cardinal Copia since the 1st Rock Iconz designs went so fast. We were happy to oblige, Ghost fans are amazing. Cardinal Copia “White Tux” variant, has the good Cardinal with his White Fedora and his black and silver cane with the serpent head handle. The base is taken from the original SOLD OUT Red Cassock design. The Cardinal Copia “Black Cassock” limited edition has the Cardinal on top the the “Rats” base design in stunning red.
