VOA turns 32 today!

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!!!

Met up with John Mellencamp for Rock & Roll Road Trip
More images are available below.

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.

Unbelievable what happened last night! Every artist brought it big time and the eclectic lineup that looked like it could be oil and water ended up being the friendliest lineup we've had so far. We all ended up going out to dinner afterwords and celebrating till the wee wee hours.

Filming Jay Leno's Garage
More images are available below.

I did Jay Leno's garage all day today with the "I Can't Drive 55" 1984 512 Boxer that was used in the video. What a blast!! We had police escorts to block off the road so we could do some fun driving. I can't wait to see this episode. Most fun I've had driving in a long time wooo hoo!!! Now I'm ready for Acoustic 4 A Cure. 

You guys can't imagine what a thrill it was to see Jay Leno driving my BB 512 Ferrari as a passenger!! One of the highlights of my driving experiences! The guy is a bad ass driver.

Watch the instagram video here!
