About McClain aka DJ DieHard
Funkify your life I am passionate about music, writing/interviewing, life and people. I’m a big supporter/fan of live music. There are three albums that should be given out with birth certificates: Robert Randolph and the Family Band “Live at the Wetlands” DJ Shadow “Endtroducing…” Tristan Prettyman “Twentythree”
“Press On!”- Robert Randolph “I haven’t slept for ten days because that would be too long.”-Mitch Hedberg (RIP). “I’ve seen a gun five times in my life..three of them have been at Waffle House.” -Jim Gaffigan “Times are not good here. The city is crumbling into ashes. It has been buried under a lava flood of taxes and frauds and maladministrations so that it has become only a study for archaeologists. Its condition is so bad that when I write about it, as I intend to do soon, nobody will believe I am telling the truth. But it is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes, than to own the whole state of Ohio.” Lafcadio Hearn (From nolafugees.com talking about New Orleans post-Katrina) “Everything I do gonna be funky from now on”- Lee Dorsey “Yes and no”-Gregory Davis “Kinda sorta”-Gregory Davis “New Orleans is not like anywhere else. It’s like a little foreign country within a country. Oh God, everything just gets under your skin and into your bones. There’s a rhythm in the air in New Orleans, even the kids walking down the street are musical.”-Dave Malone (The Radiators) “Sean Duffy wants to note that John McCain does not equal John McClane, let alone McClain Johnson.”-Sean’s staus “.45 caliber pistol is a must have on any date in or around the NO.” -New Orleans Murder Blog “One time I paid someone $5 to carry me home. I could think, I just couldn’t walk” -Frank Mays “Oh Lord of Wonderwoman, protect this music from thieving hands as befall us in days before.

Home of the hits. And if you’re from out of town…welcome to the third world.” Houseman (Galactic) “I LIKE VENDING MACHINES BECAUSE SNACKS ARE ALWAYS BETTER WHEN THEY FALL”-MITCH HEDBERG (RIP) “There’s something so amazing about music; it can transform the dullest of environments into beautiful places.
