Now this is a tough one. I have these four friends from New York City - Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael and Donatello - that I met for the first time back in the late 80s. We've had some good times, some great adventures, and yes, we shared more pizza than we probably should have. Problem is, they sorta went away for a little bit, making a retreat back into the shadows only to emerge every few years for another big adventure, often facing off against the same metal-faced samurai over-and-over-again. You see, they're ninjas... and they're turtles. Now they've got another adventure, and they need our help. They're trying to get into the NATIONAL TOY HALL OF FAME.
One of the most prominent pieces of equipment here in my office at Rock Father HQ is my PEAVEY Supreme 160 Half Stack. I bought it new back in '94-ish, and this amp carries some true "road wear" (it traveled with me for years) and some crazy stories. We've had many adventures, my Peavey and I (even my first "practice amp" was a Peavey) - and as The Rock Father, it's the first electric guitar amp that my little ones have rocked out with first hand. Now comes news that Peavey has partnered with Nickelodeon to bring some rock to the kids... with the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.
This Thanksgiving, a group of turtles that are highly skilled in the martial arts will be making their way down 34th St. in New York City. Nickelodeon announced today that the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES will take to the streets with a new float in the 86th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. "Designed by the artists of Macy’s Parade Studio, the new float, unfolding with breathtaking ninja precision, will feature a spectacular dark cityscape including roof tops, fire escapes, window ledges and a zip line down telephone wires." Check out the concept artwork below, right here on The Rock Father...
