The End of an Era…

Gary Clarke moves on to other endeavors!


Gary Clarke was Rockulus Maximus! He not only brought this show to life but maintained it as it grew. Little did he know that his local radio station would be the pinnacle of a significant shift in his career. My old man would travel far and wide for these rockulus shows. After Gary left he went off to help start his own company click here.

As Gary stated, “The word “transitional” seems highly appropriate, and in many ways, I have unintentionally opened Pandora’s box.” His departing comment hauntingly echoed as his career move took him elsewhere leaving Rockulus Maximus a thing of the past.

Gary left footprints of Rockulus Maximus in many places that we can often refer to. One, in particular, is the articles that are archived with MetalTalk as well as Screamer Magazine.

For those of you wondering where Gary is now, he is now freelancing as a Journalist, Radio Presenter, and Voice-Over Artist.

A Glimpse Into Gary – departing interview with his radio station

Who would you say has been the biggest inspiration to you?
(Gary) Oh gosh. There isn’t one sole person that has been an inspiration. Ginger from the rock band “The Wildhearts” has been for various reasons and so have Blackie Lawless from “WASP” for various reasons.

If you were a superhero, what power would you like to have?
(Gary) To read people’s minds. That would be most interesting.

What is your favorite thing about working in radio?
(Gary) Probably the fact that I might make someone smile, or share some new music with the listener. In fact, it’s been great to meet new people and to make new acquaintances.

If you could define music, how would you? And what is music to you?
(Gary) Oh…music is so important to me. It is the air that I breathe and the fuel in my car!

If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island and was given the choice of only one music group to listen to for the rest of your life, what group would it be?
(Gary) Ugh! This is not a question. This is torture! One of the best things about the concept of music is that it’s diverse and can fit any mood, so one band or artist just wouldn’t cut the mustard. I guess I would learn to adore the songs the birds would sing if indeed there were birds on that island!

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not, living or dead, real or fictional, who would it be?
(Gary) Santa Claus

What is the last book you read? And did you like the ending?
(Gary) I have an ever-increasing pile of books to read, but thus far I have not finished any of them. The one that I did finish was “I Am Ozzy,” the autobiography of Ozzy Ozbourne.

What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
(Gary) Ha ha…you are really nosey aren’t you? You would discover some cartons of skimmed milk, fruity yogurts, an odd jar of jam or marmalade and bottled water.


…and as Gary would say at the end of the Rockulus Maximus show…
“Keep on Rockin!”
