On Saturday, I went to the Metallica show. This was backstage before the show with Lars and James, then I went to the Red Hot Chili Pepper pre-Super Bowl private party and hung out with my good buddy, Chad.
Sammy is everywhere! hee he he!
I just want to say that I'm so proud about the success of The Circle DVD. I just love playing with this band and it makes me so happy that the fans are embracing this latest musical adventure. WE ARE #2 on the music video charts - its outta sight!!!
It was a three day event Bill Clinton, George Bush Junior, Mark Cuban all spoke and I performed the The final night which was last night. I believe they were 5000 employees from around the world that were treated by Starkey hearing aids to this event. The Circle crushed it.
This is the same company I put hearing aids and kids ears in Cabo last year I came home tonight so I can make the solar city protest event against electric companies.
Adam and I were hanging out last night in Cabo and ended up on stage at the Wabo playing some AC/DC and Guns and Roses - it was killer, and he's a good drummer for real!
During the solo on Sweet Child O Mine, Kari and I did some dancing while Adam was playing drums. That guitar solo is too long so I needed a dance partner- ha ha!
I starting to love these kind of events where I get to talk directly to the fans and let them know who I really am as a person when I don't have to entertain them which I love to do but at this stage in my life I want the long time fans to know the other side of me.
In the sketch fest event was a perfect opportunity I enjoyed it even though my back was out. Ouch!!!! I guess I had too much fun in Cabo. Ha Ha
Toby Keith & wife Trish hosted a surprise birthday party for Kari tonight in Cabo -- this was the beginning of the night, you don't want to see the pics from the end haha trust me.
Happy Birthday Kari! Thank you Toby & Trish!
P.S. Jorge killed it with the food as always!
We didn't make it to Cabo in time for New Year's this year got stuck in Maui - ha ha! Stayed for a fundraiser with Alice Cooper, his bass player Chuck Garric, Michael McDonald, Pat Simmons (Doobie Brothers), Hawaii's Willie K, Bob Rock and Dave Murray (Iron Maiden)!!! Quite the little jam for a few hundred special folks.
The cantinas were also all rocking! I can't believe the pictures from Vegas look like Woodstock revisited.
Hung out with Kris Kristofferson, Mick Fleetwood, Willie Nelson, and Shep Gordon at his house last night. We had ourselves a little barbecue with some rum, weed, and wine. What a party it was- haha!
Mick and I were blown away by Kris and Willie sitting there talking all night about their tour of plans for next year. Mick and I were sitting there feeling like a couple lazy bums, I want to be just like them when I grow up ha ha!!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all you Redheads
Life is good thanks to you!
