Rudy Coby - Around the World on Four Legs

Postby Scott Wells » February 8th, 2018, 10:42 am

A few years ago I was surprised when I heard a couple guys talking on a podcast that they didn't know much about Rudy Coby or who he is/was. I guess I can understand that because he has been at the extremes; either high profile with his own network TV specials and working at the Crazy Horse in Paris, France, and extended runs of his live stage show to low profile and keeping quiet for 14 years. He then returned in 2009 and quickly went back to the top. So I guess I understand why those guys may not have known about Rudy during those "quiet" years.

But now that Rudy is back, I had a chance to sit down for a long chat as he talked about his inspirations, creating and producing live shows, performing at the Magic Castle, his long friendship with Jeff McBride, Chris Kenner and Marilyn Manson, and much more.

You can watch one of his full-length TV "Lab Man" specials, see some never-before-seen photos, read the blog, listen to the podcast online, and download the MP3 file at: ... -rudy-coby
