Ex-MANOWAR Guitarist To 'Close Down' Legendary New York City Venues

September 3, 2006

Former MANOWAR guitarist Ross The Boss will help "close down" two legendary New York City venues this fall. For two special shows fans will get to see an almost-all-THE DICTATORS reunion (and/or MANITOBA'S WILD KINGDOM) with living legends:

Handsome Dick Manitoba (THE DICTATORS, MANITOBA'S WILD KINGDOM)
Ross The Boss (THE DICTATORS, MANOWAR, MANITOBA'S WILD KINGDOM, THUNDERBOSS)
JP Thunderbolt Patterson (THE DICTATORS, MANITOBA'S WILD KINGDOM, THUNDERBOSS)
Dean Rispler (MURPHY'S LAW, THUNDERBOSS)

The dates are as follows:

Sep. 17 - New York City, NY @ The Continental
Oct. 06 - New York City, NY @ CBGB

Commented Ross The Boss: "I'm going to be doing those shows at The Continental and CBGB — two great small intimate venues that have always been been artist-friendly!!!! I am personally quite upset that they are closing!!! Live music and bands must have places to be seen and grow!!! This is very upsetting!!!

"But anyway, I'm looking forward to playing with part of THE DICTATORS. I wish it was the whole band but I'll take it!! Also, I would like to invite everyone to the THUNDERBOSS record release party Sept. 12 at Billy Mark's.

"Rock and roll made a man out of me took a while for the whole world to see!! It's like a magic spell, can't you tell????"
