Velvet Revolver Guitarist and The Simpsons Creative Director Create a New Cartoon
Velvet Revolver guitarist Dave Kushner and The Simpsons Creative Director Dave Warren have recently collaborated on a new cartoon show entitled PusherJones. Warren claims that the show will be partly based on ” amazing, crazy stories about growing up in Hollywood, working at Tower Records and eventually touring the world with Velvet Revolver.” Warren further notes that PusherJones is their idea of “South Park on the Sunset Strip”.
PusherJones will be backed by real life musicians, such as Franky Perez of Scars on Broadway, Joey Castillo of Queens of the Stone Age, Scott Shriner of Weezer, and of course, Dave Kushner and Dave Warren themselves on lead and rhythm guitars, respectively.
PusherJones currently only has a TV Pilot under its belt, along with a music video that’s still in development, but interested parties can listen to PusherJones’ “Count Me Out” exclusively in full on Rolling Stone’s website: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/velvet-revolvers-dave-kusher-forms-new-cartoon-band-pusherjones-20120417
