Taking time between recording sessions (guesting on Lana Loveland's new album), and penning his memoirs,our Man-About-Town has somehow found the time to do some guest appearances - most recently on January 30 at the White Trash, where he joined the Cheeks for a rousing rendition of the Stooges "No Fun," dedicated to the memory of the late, great Ron Asheton, and later that night Sky Saxon, for a fuzzed-out jam session.
Most recently Rudi joined Finnish chartbusters 69 Eyes at their Columbia Halle gig on February 11, delivering a raucous rendition of the Cramps' "Goo Goo Muck," in homage to the recently departed Lux Interior.
And finally, Rudi and Lana will guest with French rockers (and Fuzztones Illegitimate Spawn 2 featured artists) the Norvins at the Bassy on February 13th!
