Went to Adam's Halloween party last night. His guitar player and bass player dressed up like Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. Adam was John Bonham and played drums. They all got up and did a Led Zeppelin set with Linda Perry singing lead...I came out for "Black Dog" - it was awesome!! About a 1,000 people or more in an old bar ballroom with a low ceiling, just like it was for early Zep.
Santo was flowing the VIP area. Music didn't start until midnight so it was a late night with some amazing costumes! Happy Halloween!
After four of the greatest nights in Cabo Wabo history (!!!), Jason and I flew out of Cabo Saturday afternoon Into LA to meet up with the Foo Fighters charity event. Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, KISS's Paul Stanley, Perry Farrell, Stewart Copeland, Lisa Loeb and some others joined the Foos for a crazy intimate (& at full volume, may I add) setting of a couple hundred donors for Dave Groll's annual fundraiser for improvements at the local schools.
Personal message to the fans. Thank you all so much! See you all next year for my 70th!
This is a fresh garden recipe I wrote for Daryl Hall's upcoming cookbook he's writing (probably out sometime next year).
This is how you grate fresh tomatoes (see photos below). I just picked these from my garden this morning before they get overripe. I made tomato sauce which can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks or even frozen (just not as good).

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!

Read the story through the photo captions and see the final product in the video below.
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.
