Duane Pitre & Rob Dyrdek.



It's hard to believe where Rob Dyrdek is now compared to where he started out 18 years ago. He's gone from a Dinosaur Jr loving skate rat in Ohio to the star of one of the top shows on MTV. (Who knew then that MTV would get rid of the videos?) Dyrdek deserves a lot of credit for sticking with Alien Workshop and still being a skate rat. I was stoked on Alien Workshop from the beginning since they are based in Ohio and I live in New York. When they started, it was mindblowing to see a company that wasn't in California that had Neil Blender riding for them.

keep in mind I was the Dinosaur Jr. lover...Dyrdek never had a strong association with them aside from being on AW...hip hop was at his core from early on...therefor his path makes more sense. Just to clarify :) ha

Yes, you are right. I realized that after reading the old interviews while lookin for stuff to scan. He liked Green Day, Beastie Boys and Cypress Hill.

Thanks for checking this site out.
