I just spoke with Dennis Madalone about an hour ago! What a gentleman! You never know what to expect when you call someone, especially just out of the blue. His answering service was extremely efficient and kind and Dennis called me back about 20 minutes later!
We have a nice conversation about the music video and his Star Trek work. We spoke about a couple of features from him here on SEBRT and he was most enthusiastic about it.
Expect to hear from him in the form of a comment here, and more very soon!

Thank you to Brenden of Falcon Twin for letting me know who the artist is!
Dennis Madalone, is a Hollywood stunt coordinator, that has worked believe it or not on Star Trek! Not only has he produced a song that has found it’s way into my playlist, but he has worked on Star Trek, which gives anyone a boost in my book!
I have plans to contact Mr. Madalone via the phone number on his website today and talk to him about his song, something is telling me to do it, and who am I to argue with the “something in the back of my head” ?
If we are really lucky Dennis might find the time to come and comment here on the blog after I speak to him, that would certainly be very cool if he did.
Having watched the video another 10 or more times since I wrote this article, I know why it was the most downloaded video on VH1’s charts, it really is excellent.
I was just digging through my HDD doing some spring cleaning when I came across this video and I went and found it on YouTube.
I know this is a little corny, but I truly wanted to share this as something serious. I think the story is important, and real. I am usually the last person to go who-hah over wild patriotic stuff and I was irritated when the news service covered 9/11 911 times but this is certainly worth watching.
America – We Stand As One seems very 80’s band, I don’t know who this guy is but I think the delivery, editing, music, is really good and it says what needs to be said. You can tell he really does care, unless he is a really good actor.
If you set aside the corniness for a 3 minutes and accept the message, I bet the song stays in your head for a few hours… it has been in mine.. enjoy!
