Text and Photos by Efren Martinez

On November 19th we headed back to The Fillmore to witness the talented Gary Newman. Gary is no stranger to those in the professional music industry. His music has effected such Artists as Nine Inch Nails, Janet Jackson and the list goes on and on. His other influence has been proclaimed by artists ranging from Kanye West and Prince to Foo Fighters. Hip-hop producers continually sample his pioneering electronic experiments flattered to be hailed as the originator of “industrial” music by many.

Gary Webb was born in, 1958 and released his first record in 1978 as part of the outfit Tubeway Army. Initially unsuccessful, the band scored a huge hit in 1979 with the single “Are Friends Electric” and “Cars.” Numan achieved his peak of mainstream popularity in the late 1970s and early 1980s with their second album Replicas. Both LP’s reached number one in the UK. For my wife and I, we really enjoyed the special moment he had with his teenage daughter on stage performing the song “My Name Is Ruin” who you can see featured in his official video.

About the Author:

I answered the call back in 1983; mixing Music and Entertainment with an eccentric European style has always come easy for me. In the early 80's I was the Disc Jockey for most of the high school dances in Modesto. In the late 80's I found myself in Hollywood working as a dancer and sound engineer for various professional recording industries. In 1990 my wife of 25 years and I started (The Quake Mobile DJ ®) which was seeded from San Francisco's 1985, The Quake, radio station that only lasted a short while on the air. 26 years later The Quake Mobile DJ is bigger & better than ever in the Entertainment industry. Real-Estate, photojournalism, event promoter, saving animals, travel and fitness are a few other of my interests. I also enjoy motivational speaking to children and to those who are struggling with addiction. In my life, I have always been a very direct person and once I see a goal I won't quit till I've achieved it. But out of all of the above I feel in my heart that the best inspiration in my life is my wife and my love for the faith that I practice. Phil 4:20
