Drummers Diary:


October 2007

Greg “Mazarin” Marchak 1961-2007

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay for a while and touch our hearts so deeply that we are never the same”

Greg was our soundman, road manager, producer, friend and brother. He was simply the best engineer we ever worked with and developed the classic Maz sound from the road and into the studio. Greg was with us through over 1500 shows in the 1980’s. While we were writing and recording Greg would tell us if something was good or it sucked. He was a great blues guitarist, producer and had been living in Florida the past decade producing records, doing live sound and traveling the world with Jon Oliva and the guys from Savatage.

I had the blessed fortune of working with him twice in the past year. Once in Orlando where he did live sound for a room of 600 audio experts (who never heard anything sound that good) and then reunited with Mazarin for an incredible night of music at The Memory in Montauk in August. A photo tribute (below) to Greg with music recorded with & by him in Montauk a week before he passed.

He loved life, his family, his friends, and his lovers, his music, his politics, traveling and Mr. B his beloved kitty cat. There will never be another.

An amazing spring-summer ‘06. Great gigs and mucho smiles:

March in Las Vegas with The Drunk Unkles ,The Cutting Room shows, The NYC Schools Fest with Zest & 30th Anniversary shows with the Original MAZARIN The Legendary Gary U.S. Bonds and so many of our friends (can’t wait to see the DVD). CODA & Coppersmiths Mayhem with the Hell or High Water Band and the best series of shows ever with The OK Club at The Memory Motel in Montauk. Had a ball sitting in with No Mersey at Sessions NYC, Thanks El.

Nothing could top last week and feeling the energy from five feet, sharing the smiles of one of the guys who wrote (my) book, Levon Helm. Thanks Leon & Geri for the hook-up! If you haven’t been to the shows at Levon’s studio check it out.

BIG shout to my man Joey Joe D, Rooster, Mortay, GMS Drums and especially Steve from EVANS. Steve is THE master of drum tuning in addition to being a kick-ass drummer himself! Couldn’t have done the summer shows without ya!
