Heavy metal bassist, Rob “Blasko” Nicholson is perhaps best known for his performances on Rob Zombie’s solo albums, and is currently part of Ozzy Osbourne’s band. Nicholson is also noted for his contribution as bassist to metal band Cryptic Slaughter within underground metal circles. Blasko joins the LLA show to talk the parallels between being an entrepreneur in the music industry, compared to the fitness industry, overcoming demons, the benefits of bringing something of value to the table (even if it’s a good laugh), when seeking business partnerships, as well as the following:

 

  • The guys discuss the issue of “Nuisance Networking” in the fitness and music industry, and how you can avoid it
  • How “paying dues” is becoming a lost art
  • Why execution trumps ideas on any given day
  • What part of Mike’s book “Live Life Aggressively” left Blasko totally mind-blown 
  • What can aspiring musicians and fitness professionals learn from music artist Adele
  • Blasko discusses how performing with Ozzy Osbourne is not the epitome of his success & why this time is based on an educated accident
  • Blasko shares how artists like Ozzy, Danzig, and Rob Zombie have had such longevity in an industry cursed with so much tragedy
  • How does Blasko view modern technology‘s effect on the music industry
  • What you can learn from musicians in terms of utilizing multiple streams of income
  • To niche down or to not niche down…which is the best way to go
  • Blasko shares the benefits of “going analog” to be more successful
