Track four on Gringo Rock! asks the question “what would King Diamond do, if he and Method Man were in the same room?”. A poignant query I know. This song is another funny one about a long haired heavy metal guy that wears a khaki suit like the 90’s rappers and listens to Geto Boyz and Old Ice Cube while asking the age old question “what would Tom Araya say, if I asked to join Slayer as their new DJ?”
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
