We have some horrific news to report tonight. Earlier today, Adrenaline Mob was involved in a fatal bus crash while headed to a show in St. Petersburg that took the life of bassist David “Dave Z” Zablidowsky, and injured six more individuals. Continue reading
I gotta admit, I liked Adrenaline Mob’s second disk Men of Honor. It was great for doing cardio. So, I had a good feeling going into We The People (both Century Media). It didn’t disappoint. We The People is the same hard-driving, pristine, Heavy Metal album Adrenaline Mob’s predecessor was. Adding David Zablidowsky on bass and Jordan Cannata on drums, We The People exhibits a healthy rhythm section that has us all breathing a sigh of relief. I honestly didn’t think it would “work” without AJ Pero, but bless! I’m happy this album is as strong as it is. Continue reading

Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French said the band will “honor” their late drummer A.J. Pero by fulfilling its touring obligations this year with the help of “a professional drummer who is a friend.” Pero died on March 20, 2015 at the age of 55 while on tour with Adrenaline Mob.
Writing on his blog at Preview.inc.com, he said:
“I realize that our collective history is so long, so deep, so intertwined that A.J.’s death has shaken us to the core. It made me realize the fundamental connection that we as a band and as a company share as friends with a nearly 40-year history.”
He continued: “This company employs a lot of people and has created a business model that is the envy of many of our fellow bands.
“We will honor A.J. during our shows this year. A professional drummer who is a friend will be filling in shortly. This will allow us to fulfill our touring obligations and, most importantly, give us some space to make some very hard decisions about our future.”
Jay Jay added:
“We are surely not the same kids who had a dream 40 years ago to become ‘rock stars.’
“We carry the scars to prove it.
“We are adults who run a business, and businesses must go on, even through a curtain of tears.”
Twisted Sister and Adrenaline Mob drummer AJ Pero was found unresponsive on Adrenaline Mob’s bus this past Friday, March 20, 2015. It is reportedly due to a heart attack, his longtime agent said he had been complaining of a sore arm and took a few days off to rest. This incident took place in Poughkeepsie, NY, where they were supposed to perform later that evening.
Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French joined Adrenaline Mob on stage at a tribute show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ this past Saturday, March 21, 2015 doing “You Can’t Stop Rock N Roll.” View footage below.
Adrenaline Mob issued a statement on their Facebook page in regards to this:
My friend, my brother, my band mate passed away today. My heart is broken. RIP A.J. Pero.

I have to say, the passing of AJ PERO just doesn’t seem real. It will be at his wake in NY on Wednesday. #EndOfAnEra
