AP: Two Minute Warning

As you're crushed against the barricade in the sweltering heat, your favorite rock stars are gearing up to hit the stage. Now you can take an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at exactly what they're doing in the final moments before they play right here at altpress.com -- (which I had the pleasure of producing). This week we've got Falling In Reverse warming up where you can see Ronnie singing in the back of a loading truck, members signing autographs and getting their guitars in tune and so much more. Note my sweet cameo (whoops!) at :22. CLICK HERE
