be well, be safe, be ABOVE

May 25, 2022

The fear of knowing oneself can elicit a fear like nothing else.  Afraid to let our guard down, uncomfortable in our skin. We self-medicate  and self-protect with a devastating toll. The Colossus that is Dan Neet embodies this narrative and is empowered by his exploding head.  

This week the guys are joined by the 5-1-8s own Dan Neet and his angel and partner Lisa McLane. Dan’s addiction struggles are deep and layered, like the heaviness of his band the Clay People, Dan has carried the weight of addiction for much of his life. Multiple stints in rehab were not enough to break the cycle of trauma that Dan was trying to numb. 

‘Living in the past is depression and living in the future is anxiety’, says Neet. Both those paths have been embossed by the Dr. Martens that Neet wears as part of his armor. The armor of a Palegod, Demon Hero. 

Lisa McLane, his partner in all things, is Dan’s personal hype track. Lisa has stood by his side and knew Dan was her person. Lisa is Dan’s angel in black, when heavens fall. Lisa, herself is a goddess-warrior. A single mom of three and survivor of a very emotionally abusive relationship, prior to reconnecting with Dan. Lisa says, ‘I saved him, but he saved me.’ Call them the industrial-metal strength John and Yoko.
