Great time at Harrah's in Tahoe. We flew in with the Circle and my man Santo Blanco in 1st class. Once we were in Tahoe we made a stop at a local food bank to donate money to the area - very happy to be giving back to these communities!
At the venue we got settled for soundcheck and met a couple fans in the service elevator coming down for the show. These two maids were thrilled!

The Chicago Cubs joined us before the concert, I guess these guys were in town playing the Oakland A's and they came by the show since they are big Sammy fans. I don't know any of their names, but I guess it's the main guys.
VOA, wow 32 years. I can't believe how belligerent I was at this time about Russia pulling out of the 1984 Olympics -- that's what the statement was all about, the voice of America! I actually watched the video for VOA a few days ago and laughed my ass off. First off, Sammy acting (ha ha) strike one. Then, the amount of money that was spent was incredible.... no one could get away with that today! The video cost nearly $400,000 and came out of my share of the royalties like every other artist in those days, ouch!!!
Just filmed Rock 'n' roll road trip with John Mellencamp. One of my favorite interviews in my life. John is the real deal. It was really great, him and I hit it off even better than I expected.
I've always been a fan, I knew him and I could connect on some soulful level and we did. We played a song which is an old blues folksong called "Delia". No rehearsal or anything so it was raw, rough, and ready, but very cool song.
"The Red Rocker Bar and Grill in West Memphis has been open for a one year now!
We were on the way to the Rogers, Arkansas show so we stopped by for a quick jam of "Rock Candy" with a really cool blues band from Memphis.
"A huge thanks to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital for making the world a better place for children.
We are so happy Acoustic-4-A-Cure has been a continued success and allowed us to contribute so much to this amazing organization. I want to thank Melissa Etheridge, Tommy Lee, Joe Satriani, Pat Monahan, John Mayer, and my partner James Hetfield and all the other musicians and especially the fans that helped make this happen again this year.
I spent the weekend with Toby Keith in Oklahoma for the new season of Sammy's Rock & Roll Road Trip - had a blast with the interview, playing some songs, driving around in a '73 Oldsmobile cutlass convertible. One of my favorite episodes, can't wait!
ps: Warriors game was happening and check out my hat! #DubNation #Warriors #BayAreaUnite
