BIO: Who is Mark After Dark? Mark After Dark -"The Man Who Hates Everything, Except the Real Thing!”,has been a rock and roll and music enthusiast since his earliest childhood. From sneaking into AC/DC and Charlie Daniels concerts when he was a pre-teen, waking up with Ted Brown on WNEW AM, or walking to school with great DJ’s like Dave Herman on WPLJ FM, or Scott Muni on WNEW FM rocking his Walkman, Mark’s has truly been a life of music. Leaving home early to pursue life on the road with various bands, his time as a musician gave him the opportunity to tour all over the country and meet and perform with many who have since gone on to rise through the ranks of the music industry. Today, Mark’s enthusiasm for the art is expressed through his journalistic endeavors. He writes for “The New York Waste”, a local New York City newspaper with national distribution. Always controversial, he has received thousands of emails from readers who both love and hate his bold, opinionated, and passionate articles. These articles consist of reviews of current releases, shows in and outside of New York City, and interviews with many of Rock’s true legends. Mark After Dark made some of his finest discoveries in little-known clubs and reviewed them before any one else knew who these bands were: Nashville Pussy, Queen V, The Donnas, and many more. Mark’s passion for music and his ability to forge alliances with the heroes of Rock and Roll have won him interviews and friendships around the music world. His controversial and brash style has earned him the honor of comparison to classic Creem Magazine’s Lester Bangs. In 1996 the first incarnation of the Mark After Dark show was born on two of New Yorks’ better known cable channels. Running late-night on Fridays, it has become a part of the New York rock scene, gathering many loyal fans. It was rated to be one of the top cable shows in 1999 by Timeout magazine Mark has been a devoted music fan for over 30 years.

An Unlikely Pairing Neil Young and the late Rick James had a one-time collaboration which has since been largely forgotten. In the mid-'60s, Young was the guitarist of a Toronto R&B band called The Mynah Birds. They were the first mostly white act which landed a record deal with Motown Records
