Buzznet Report: Tom DeLonge, Max Bemis & More...


Last night, I covered a "Sessions" event at Guitar Center in Hollywood. It was a panel moderated by my old and good friend Jason Pettigrew (Alternative Press) that featured Tom DeLonge (Angels & Airwaves), Joe Escalante (the Vandals), Brett Gurewitz (Epitaph Records), Kevin Lyman (Vans Warped Tour / Rockstar Taste Of Chaos / Rockstar Mayhem), Max Beemis (Say Anything) and Phillip Sneed (Story Of The Year) discussing the state of the music business, touring and more.

You can check out my report RIGHT HERE.
