Strat Weekend #3

Strat Weekend #3

It doesn’t get much better than that to close out our 1st residency run! All the years playing with Mikey, Mona, Vic and Bro came out like a wave of synchronicity. No setlist needed as we rode the jam from "Turn up The Music, to AC/DC’s "Problem Child" (a highlight of the night for me and one I haven't played in at least 20 years) to Montrose "Make it Last"" (the second song I ever wrote in my life!) and “Be Still” a new song we performed live for the first time (minus Jason) but yes—new album coming soon!

First Weekend of the Strat Residency

The first weekend of the Vegas/Strat residency was as much fun as I've had anywhere in the world on stage. Cabo, Catalina, Vegas all on the same level of pure rockin spontaneous fun. Setlist Saturday night might've been my favorite of all time!

I can't believe how many redheads saw both shows! Which do you think was the best night!! Wabos got some work to do next weekend!!!

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.

Filming a little Sammy's Beach Bar Rum promo, while sneaking in a little smooch with Kari while she had her mask off #WeLiveTogether #VicInTheHouse #OneSip

Spent the day singing and playing acoustically, filming with the great mixologist Jeff Burkhart (the Barfly) mixing up some new concoctions for the website, etc. Man these are great drinks and the right music to go with them. Lord knows I do miss playing live concerts! But it sure felt good to play & sing with Vic & Kari.
