ThatEricAlper.com I am not used to routine, which is how I like it. As a weasel, a flack, an officer to the press, a director, a dictator, I think I can be forgiven, by 10:00am, if I have felt I had too much to dream last night. My Twitter

I am not used to routine, which is how I like it. As a weasel, a flack, an officer to the press, a director, a dictator, a Coke and Chips for breakfast, and dinner for lunch kind of guy, I think I can be forgiven, by 10:00am, if I have felt I had too much to dream last night. I am one of the lucky ones for sure – getting to do during the days (and nights and weekends) what I love to do: Be around passionate music lovers, fans, music industry folks (yeah, we’re still here!) talking about the newest album, the old record recently found in the basement or bargain bin, tragedy-tainted tales, and memories of old C-30, C-60, C-90s in our pockets. So, onto this bio… If I can borrow from Dylan, “I found myself writing this story, this long piece of vomit, about 20 pages long.” He was talking about Like A Rolling Stone, mind you. Battling against the over-exposed and the under-talented, I have handled the PR for Bob Geldof, Ringo Starr, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Barry Manilow, Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings, Sasha and Digweed, Sinead O'Connor, Little Big Town, Emerson Drive, The Black Angels, Jason Blaine, Natalie MacMaster, DJ Khaled, Dr. John, Rita MacNeil, Dwight Yoakam, Billy Blanks, Fred Eaglesmith, Harry Shearer, Dan Zanes, Opeth, Cradle Of Filth, 10,000 Maniacs, Jeff Dunham, Ron White, Buried Inside, A-Trak, Judy Collins, Supersuckers, Joan Baez, Slash, Swollen Members, Andy Kim, Carl Cox, Pete Seeger, Peggy Seeger, Soweto Gospel Choir, Joan Armatrading, Amy Ray, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Snoop Dogg, Loverboy, Robert Munsch, Jeff Martin, J. Dilla, The Wiggles, Bill Wyman, Sly and Robbie, Frank Black, Turbonegro, Steve Earle, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mick Fleetwood, The Prodigy, Madlib, Elise Estrada, Deborah Cox, Point Blank, In Flames, Daniel O'Donnell, Ray J, Steve Miller, The Smashing Pumpkins, Mastodon, Kim Mitchell, Jim Jones, Charlatans UK and many more. I'll let others talk about me now, while keeping my opinionated mouth shut.
