Former SKID ROW Drummer To Answer Questions About 'Waking Up Dead' Movie

Former SKID ROW/SAIGON KICK drummer Phil Varone will be showing a condensed version of his movie "Waking Up Dead", followed by a lecture about his story documented in the film, on Thursday, September 6 at 8:00 p.m. at the ACME Theater (135 No. La Brea Ave.) in Los Angeles, California. After the lecture Phil will open the floor to questions. This is a free event that is open to the public.

"Waking Up Dead" is a film about the seedy underworld of '80s metal as seen through the eyes of Phil Varone. The movie received its long-awaited North American DVD release on June 26 via MVD Visual. According to Varone, the DVD will be issued in the U.K. on October 29.

Directed by Emmy Award-winning journalist Fabio Jafet and filmed over a four-year period, "Waking Up Dead" was previously described by Varone as "a great lesson on life for anyone who watches it. . . I traded everything … my family, friends and finances … all for my addictions and the world of sex, drugs and rock and roll."

A preview of "Waking Up Dead" may be seen on the film's web site,
