Andrew W.K. and Jack Black are certified Rock Fathers, so when news rolled in that J.B. was appearing on the debut episode of Andrew's new webseries MEET ME AT THE RECK, I had to post it.

Back in 2003, while still working for the Musicland Group's late Sam Goody division, my wife and I had the opportunity to catch a very early sneak-preview of the film, SCHOOL OF ROCK. Even with missing pieces and placeholders where other bits would go, we both loved seeing Jack Black take on the role of Dewey Finn - a rocker impersonating a substitute teacher, and subsequently teaching kids how to throw down in front of a live audience. Now, 11 years later, a live-action television series based on SCHOOL OF ROCK has been ordered straight-to-series, with 13 episodes being produced by Paramount Television for airing on Nickelodeon.
It's been over a decade since TENACIOUS D first rocked speakers with their phenomenal debut album, and in that time the duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass have witnessed their comedic musical offspring take a career path much like the bands they've been known to parody. The epic first album followed by a sophomore slump, the backlash, years of inactivity, and finally the inevitable rise from the ashes. It would be pretty funny if this was actually all by design. Ha Ha - the joke's on you, rock critics and music industry!
