“HEY HO…SOLD OUT!” .Always a bitter sweet day when on of the Rock Iconz ® comes to the end of the production and is SOLD OUT. Johnny Ramone’s Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statue is gone as of today…never to return. As you know if you have followed KnuckleBonz over the past 18 years, we have never re-released a Rock Iconz, 3D Vinyl® or On Tour® Ltd. Edition Collectible once it is gone.
This production was difficult with multiple sculptors working to get things just right on the Punk Rock Titan Johnny Ramone. We worked directly with Linda Ramone, Johnny’s widow on many revisions. We got to talk about Johnny, the state of music in general and a lot about baseball. Johnny was a huge baseball and NY Yankees fan. We are not, so that was a source of some good natured shit-giving. We learned that Johnny Ramone and George Thorogood, both huge baseball guys, had a beef that lasted for a few years over their baseball fandom. All ended up ok. All were all really happy with the final production.
A number of Rock Iconz will have similar fates this week. 3 other Rock Iconz are now gone and have moved to the SOLD OUT KNuckleBonz Hall of Fame. #staytuned here for updates on that.

29 Years since the Pantera “Vulgar Display of Power” Release – 3D Vinyl Sale Today ONLY !
Hard to believe it’s been 29 years since Pantera dropped “Vulgar Display of Power” on us. We remember the heavy metal scene struggling with it’s identity at that time, with some of the heavier bands embracing the grunge or “alternative” brands. The Cowboys from Hell where having none of that and were flying the metal and power groove flags high. From the opening riff on “Mouth of War” to the heavy flow of the final track “Hollow”, this record was an instant classic. A perfect record, that has happened only a few times in hard rock/heavy metal history. The amazing musicianship of Phillip Anslemo, Rex Brown, Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul Abbott was on full display. But, the meaning of these songs went further than many metal tracks. It hard to imagine how relevant some lyrical lines would still be today “Be Yourself, By Yourself, Stay Away from Me!” Can the world today be summed up any better?
The KnuckleBonz® 3D Vinyl® Limited Edition Statue for Pantera Vulgar Display of Power is available now and on SALE today only to mark the 29th anniversary of the release.

Rock Iconz Bon Scott – “Riff Raff” in Peace. On this day, 1980 rock music lost one of the most powerful front men of all time. Bon Scott of AC/DC would have been 74.
BON SCOTT, the charismatic frontman of the legendary hard rock band AC/DC®, was born Ronald Belford Scott in Kirriemuir, Scotland on July 9, 1946. The Scott family moved to Australia when Bon was 6 years old. He showed interest in music in those early days, performing in his Dad’s pipe band. After quitting high school, he formed a local group called The Spektors in 1964 where he played drums and did occasional vocal work. This was the first hint at what was to come. In 1974, Bon joined AC/DC as lead singer and thus began a rise to hard rock superstardom. Bon’s combination of bluesy vocal riffs and gritty song writing was amazing. His power on the live stage was even more lethal. AC/DC would morph from domestic rock heroes in Australia, to global fame. The band’s fan base, ever loyal, grew with each album release right through Bon’s last recording, “Highway to Hell.” This was a breakthrough for AC/DC reaching number 17 on the Billboard charts in the USA and multi-platinum sales. Sadly, we lost Bon Scott shortly after on February 19th, 1980. However, he will never be forgotten and remains one of rock music’s greatest Rock Iconz®. Let There Be Rock !

Nice to see a metal band moving through this really f#cked up time without missing stride. The new video boats great production value, with cool live shots of the band and storytelling. Conjured feelings of what felt like long ago when seeing new music in the video format was how it was done…””music” TV actually ran music videos.

Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” – Simple Designs Can Be the Most Complex
When we began the initial discussions for our 3D Vinyl® Limited Edition State Series in 2017, the initial focus what to create something in statue and collectible form for Superfans™ that for what ever reason, did not dig the statue category. There was a ton of creative motivation obviously, but that was the touchstone moment.
Once we decided to move forward with a new KnuckleBonz collectible series, the real fun began; what albums should we initially create in 3D? We all blurted out our obvious favorites. Some were perfect for the 3D Vinyl format and could be expressed easily in statue form. Others, although amazing albums, with equally great cover art would prove elusive. One album that we all defaulted to and wanted to consider, was Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.” The gold standard for concept albums, and the 8th studio release for Pink Floyd. The power of artist Storm Thorgerson’s pyramid with the prism light beam? Sounds great right? We are now 4 years into the 3D Vinyl Collector Series and we still have not pulled the trigger on any Dark Side of the Moon designs for 3D Vinyl. However, we are sneaking up on it and might submit something to Pink Floyd for consideration soon…Staytuned.
