      I said for ages that, although it was not hard to figure out his identity (since many people had already "outed" him), I would keep my word to him and not do so myself. I honored that, and never - not once - broke my word.

      I'm not going to refer to him as anything else besides "Mixerman" in public for as long as he continues to actively use that as his moniker. However, since he has outed himself, and you could find that with a simple Google search, I'll provide the link for you and let you read what he has to say on the matter for yourself.

        I like how he addresses the issue of who the band is.

          Yeah, I had a few chuckles while reading his disclaimers.

            Even in the excerpts of what I read online, I was thinking that it sounded alot like fiction--for two reasons. One, something that crazy is unheard of. I've heard crazy studio stories, and that one just seemed exceptionally embellished. Two, as he addresses the fact of potential lawsuits, any band that he was writing about--even in an alias and with names changed--seemed like it could never be properly protected without it eventually ending in a lawsuit.....pending that it was true, of course. The best scenario that I could see was that it was a compilation of alot of different sessions that went wrong.

            If something's fiction, cool. I'm fine with that, but be upfront about it. If it's not, it's misleading and selling a product that's untrue, I think. Mixerman is the James Frey of the rock world.

                  I always wanted Mixerman to be you, though, you know, that's gone now. Ah, well, I can pretend.

                  So it was The Ataris, then? Huh.

                    I can neither confirm or deny the identity of Bitchslap, or even if they were a "real" band or purely fictional.

                      PS It always cracked me up when people thought I was MM. I always thought that was funny - I mean really - is my writing style anything like that? I suppose it's within the realm of possibility that I could create an alter-ego and a persona, but I've always been pretty much WYSIWYG - as anyone who has met me in "real life" will usually attest.

                        Word.

                        As to the other bit, no, I never suspected you were MM - frankly, there's something a little bit underhanded about it, as hilarious as it is to read, a little unprofessional and you've never struck me as the kind of guy that would write something like that, even as a fabrication. You're up front, and that was, well, not. My opinion, of course, and it's still funny.

                            I just finished reading mixerman on monday. Read it in three days. Such an entertaining read.

                            I'll definitely be picking this up.
