Hi Redheads, Saturday I'm flying down to Vegas for the follow-up to our Norcal Sammy's Beach Bar Rum Bash - this time in Vegas! But that's not all - the folks over at AXS Live (used to be HDNet) are going to join me when the plane lands and broadcast LIVE as I make my way from the hotel to the airport and down to Club Vinyl @ The Hard Rock for the rum bash - come check it out -- I'll mix you all a drink live on TV!
Just back from Tahoe and a great benefit for Larry Ruvo's "Keep Memory Alive" program for fighting Alzheimer's - had a blast cooking with Emeril and his crew and jamming with the Atlantic City Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill house band Lefty Lucy. Also in the house were other supporters Robin Wiliams, Ray Romano and others.
Hey Redheads! Just got back from Hawaii, totally exited about rum bash coming up in Vegas. Birthday bash ticket registration is gonna be happening soon too.
More info is posted in News!
Also, check out the cool painting of me by Maui artist Nathalie Boutin! She has a studio here on Maui (808-250-6753), and you can also check out her stuff on studioartmaui.com.
I'm in Maui with Mark at the Sammy's Beach Bar Rum distillery! Some fans are stopping by the factory to stir up some mash themselves and sign a barrel and 6 months later it will be in the stores - I just love making Redheads part of the process - this rum is hand made, baby!
Last week in Vegas was a whirlwind! First off, the 'Foot had an amazing show at the Hard Rock but since we had a night off between shows all sorts of fun went down. After the show I got a chance to visit the Frank Gehry building with Larry Ruvo who funded the Center for Brain Health project that is gonna cure Alzheimers (Larry rocks!).
He will be missed. Here's a photo of us in his RV at Barrett-Jackson the year I sold my Shelby. We were talkin' Cabo and cars.
It's always a thrill to be back in St. Louis, especially at the beautiful Fox Theatre! The tour is going great and we're excited to be on the road to play for everyone. Oh Yeah!
Denny and Bill are sounding absolutely fantastic and we can't wait to play these songs from the first Montrose album tonight for the celebration of Ronnie and the music. Here's a few photos from yesterday's rehearsal that we wanted to share.

I can't believe last night - you Redheads are some of the most fun people on the planet! Thank you so much, Kari & I had one of the best times ever!
And to everyone who I met who made the trek from out of state -- wow, I was really knocked out! Let's do it again!
ps: how about that Ape? We'll definitely be seeing more of them in the future!
Here's my first batch of Sammy's Sea Salt from the beach in front of my house in Cabo! I'm making this exclusively for the margaritas at the Cabo Wabo down here! Damn it's some salty salt -- a little goes a long way but it's flaky enough to disappear on the tongue. Unfortunately there ain't enough to go around, but it's fun to make -- just using a cookie sheet and 1/2" of sea water at a time!
