ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE ARTISTS AND ATHLETES-This Album was written and recorded by Ampage lead Singer/Bassist and IronmanTriathlete Mark Mason and Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen as well as the best rock group in triathlon ''Ironband'' To help raise money and awareness for the Blazeman Foundation in finding a cure for A.L.S. The other musicians include Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones and Dramarama guitarist Mark Inglert , Duran Duran singer John Taylor, Dramarama singer John Easdale along with singer Pamela Mason and special thanks to Simon Gowen.
THE PROFESSIONAL IRONMAN ATHLETES- The other singers on the Iron Blazeman song are professional Ironman athletes and Triathletes . They include- Chrissie Wellington, Leanda Cave, Mirinda Carfrae, Andy Potts, Bryan Rhodes, Scott Tinley, Mike Reilly, Matty Reed, Wingnut, Fiona Docherty, Jasmine Oeinck, Mary Miller, Amanda Hahnn, Holly Bennett and The Blazeman Warriors!

Mark Mason-Founding force of the band AMPAGE, Mason is also a prolific songwriter with many credits ranging from television, to major movies, such as: "I'm Dangerous Tonight" in 1990, "Bikini Summer II" in 1992, in which Jeff Conaway also starred and directed along with on screen performances by Mark Mason and Ampage. Mark's songwriting talent was featured also in the in the 1994 NBC Movie of the Week Robin Cook's "Mortal Fear". In 1999, Mark Mason along with Rick Allen, (world renown drummer for Def Leppard), wrote and recorded the theme song for the Disney Movie "Brink".

To add to Mark's impressive list of professional credits, he is also recognized for his work collaborating with other musical greats as Tommy Shaw of the legendary rock band Styx, and with songwriter Wes Arkin of Guns & Roses fame, to name just a few Mark's many credits throughout his illustrious long term professional career as a songwriter and musical performer. The remarkable versatility, total pro creative adaptability and high quality of Mark's style of songwriting and vocal and bass musicianship, has earned Mark wide recognition amongst many of the music and movie industry's elite as being a "musician's musician".

When Mark isn't on stage you will probably find him swimming, biking, and running. He trains between 2 - 4 hours a day in between band rehearsals, recording and concert dates. Mark has competed in Triathlons and Ironmans all over the world.

Scott Kinner- Bass, drums (not always at the same time), vocals, piccolo,
Kinner is the multi-instrumentalist of the group; in the absence of a full time drummer or bassist he generally flips a coin before each show to determine whether he will play bass or drums and then we either pick up a session musician to fill in on the other instrument or bring along the other part along in the iPod. You might recognize his face (when he's not wearing spandex and an aero helmet) since he spent much of his mis-guided youth as the percussive-powerhouse behind the legendary "P.M.S. Blues Band" out of Kansas City, KS.

Logging hundreds of gigs throughout the Kansas City area, Kinner has seen every neon Hamm's beer sign in the city. "We tried to get them to secure chicken wire in front of the stage" recalls Kinner of one of their livelier gigs, "but the bar owners called us babies and told us to suck it up." By the way, he still drums for the "PMS Blues Band". Like any prima donna musician, he thinks he needs to be in multiple bands to express his true artistic ability. (What Ever!)
It was experiences such as those that helped Kinner to evolve into a talented drummer, leveraging his unique ability to simultaneously keep a beat and duck behind his ride cymbal when tomatoes or bottles start flying. It wasn't until joining forces with Shultz and Roberts last year that Kinner branched out into stringed instruments after being told, "We can't have a lead singer hide behind a drum kit. You have to learn to play the bass!" And learn he did; Kinner can now knock out each of the four notes required to accompany Roberts and Shultz's searing guitar riffs and is coming on strong as a force to reckon with in the triathlon world.

David Shultz- Guitar, vocals, keyboards, cowbell, Japanese koto, auto-tune
Shultz's illustrious music career started at the age of 13 with acclaimed, Rockville, Maryland basement band, "Turning Point". Following a bitter breakup Shultz moved on to "Ded Eddy", the one-song opening act for notorious Echo Hill Summer Camp bad boys, "Flight Crew". Following his move to the midwest in the mid-80s, Shultz joined underground alt-rockers, "Triple Owners of the World", touring KFCs around the globe before heading to college and joining Roberts in cover band whose name, unfortunately, we can't remember since our freshman year of college was a tad blurry.
Shultz is the band's founder, having written the lyrics to their their first song, "Pass the Chamois Butt'r", in their entirety during the hot, miserable run leg while completing his first half Ironman race. Following the race he recorded the instrumentals and vocals by himself before realizing that he couldn't survive as a one-man band, eventually enlisting the help of musicians more talented than himself when he brought in Kinner and Roberts to take the imaginary Ironband into the realm of semi-reality.
These days Shultz's notable triathlon achievements involve managing to cross the finish at races without a forced, post-race stay in the emergency room, and his main musical achievements are writing such children's hits as "I'm not the one who tooted" with his small children who are, in their own right, on their way to musical and triathlon genius. Long-term goals include upping his Ironman finish record to more than 50% and headlining the finish line concert at Kona.

Mike Roberts- Guitar, vocals, pan flute, thumb cymbals
If you don't recognize this triathlon/guitar prodigy, picture him with large sunglasses and bigger hair. Yes, that's him - famous lead-guitarist of Denver-based "Three Legged Dog", the Meister Brau-powered power-chord rockers that thrilled fans from Mile High Stadium to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the mid-80s.
After an on-again-off-again rotation of gigs at sorority parties and house parties during their years together at KU during which nary more than three chords were played, Roberts and Shultz reunited to launch the infamous sold-out annual acoustic performances in Shultz's basement during an annual holiday party before eventually plugging back into amplifiers and bringing on the rhythm section of Kinner and Ogden. Roberts' long-term Ironman goal is to catch Ogden on the run leg, continue to take an hour off his Ironman PR each time he races despite a lack of training, and to finally learn the Pentatonic Scale on his guitar.
