Happy New Year / Update


Dear Friends, Fans, and NSA Monitors:

Happy New Year!

I'd like to thank you all so much for your kind support of Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine.

Many of you have been asking me why we haven't been touring for the last 6 months, why we don't have any shows scheduled for 2014, when I'm having my eye surgery, and why I have been drunk-dialing your wife at 11:59PM every night.

Well, it's a long story, but basically, in July, I was hospitalized for this random staph infection on the back of my neck, and I almost DIED! Like DEAD DIED! I also had hernia surgery last year, plus I sprained my psoas (if you know what I mean), and all of that prevented me from getting the cornea operation I still need.

So, I've had to cancel our live concert tours until I get all my cricks fixed. I'll tell the whole gruesome story in my forthcoming book "Atlas Lounged," but until then, I appreciate your patience, your enthusiasm, and your wife.

My eye surgery is finally rescheduled for May 2014. I'm still writing my book, but with only one working eye, it's going slow, so it probably won't be released until November 2014. Sorry again for the delays, but the book is realllllly going to be worth the wait, it's a lot of fun. If you haven't pre-ordered "Atlas Lounged" yet, please visit .

In the meantime, thanks again for your loyalty and generous support. I hope to be back in front of the microphone soon; I'll keep you posted on my progress. Please follow me on FaceBook and Twitter and Instagram @RichardCheese, and maybe I'll even show you a photo of my psoas. Or, ask your wife -- she's got the negatives.

Stay Swanky,


P.S. Ow!

      Glad to hear you got the operation rescheduled!

      As I said on Twitter, the cd was a giant hit with my family on Christmas :)
