RIP Claudio Zampolli
RIP Claudio Zampolli

Claudio Zampolli was a genius mechanic. Especially Italian high-performance engines. He got me my 512 Boxer (the “I Can’t Drive 55” car), my first new Ferrari, and many more after that. He's the mechanic in the "I Can't Drive 55" video. He's the guy that gave Eddie Van Halen my phone number where Eddie called me from his shop - two days later I was in Van Halen. He was the whole band's mechanic and took care of all of our cars. He also made his own car the ultra exotic Cizeta.

Sammy and Bro, 1970
Sammy and Bro, 1970

David Lauser a.k.a. Bro and I in 1970. We might have been calling ourselves The Big Bang, Manhole, or Skinny. Bro and I used to set up by ourselves, guitar and drums, in Riverside Fairmount Park.

They had a little amphitheater and we just went and did it without asking for permission. Nothing. There might be 7-10 people who would stop and listen. We didn't give a fuck, we just jammed. Loaded the truck back up at the end of the day.

After filming our pay-per-view fri & Saturday 7-8 on Catalina Island, we headed way down south where the big blue agave grow for a week long trip down in Baja Mexico. This is what happens when I pull into the airport for my birthday. A cake, and a shot of Santo tequila wow! #happybirthdaytome #thecircle #cabo
