South America

what a great trip this was... it didn't start out great, when i got a call the week before that Dave Langguth (drums) broke his ankle & couldn't make the tour. I called Dennis & he changed some gig's around & was able to do it. so off to Paraguay we went... now I've played Paraguay before, the fans were great & the production team was 1st rate. now on these tours we always play with rental gear & my band has pretty simple requests when it comes to backline, but in the states they never have what we need & always have an excuse why they can't provide it. so what a surprise that Paraguay had the best gear of the whole tour. brand new Marshalls, classic SVT's & a killer kit. next up was Argentina for 3 shows & a house party for a radio listener winner. I knew it would be special when i got off the plane & there was a welcoming party of girls. the El Teatro show kicked ass, I met the local Hell's Angel's chapter pres. & my doppelganger. but the 2nd show, we went on @ 2:30am @ Peteco's & that pissed me off. after the Rosario show we had to drive a couple hours back to Buenos Aires to catch our flight to Brazil. where i met the American ambassador & did a meet n greet with the boys & girls club in Sao Paulo. the show was another packed house & good thing, cuz' last time it was 1/2 filled. we stayed up all night again to catch our flight to Chile, so we were a lil' beat when we arrived. the promoters took pity on us, since we've been up for 2 days straight & let us cancel the press conference. the show in Santiago was crazy... i hadn't played there since 1994 when i opened for Aerosmith, so i was surprised when the show sold out. of course we only had a couple hours sleep again to catch our flight to Bolivia... i know this sounds like a broken record, but i didn't book the flights, my agent did & they should know u play @ 1am in S. America, so don't book flights @ 7am ! anyway Bolivia was killer, except i could barely breathe cuz' of the altitude. the mayor gave me a certificate & the key to the city as a token of their appreciation. (that we rocked the house) so i'm sure we'll be back soon. S. America has the best music fans in the world & are very passionate about good music. can't wait for the next tour !

Slab City Riot

myself, Riki, Allen, Kevin & Dean left for Temecula friday afternoon. we went to the pre party, but it was over by the time we got there, so we hit a bar & had some margarita's. we met up with Caleb, Paul & Stu saturday morning for the ride to Slab City. we thought we'd catch up with the wuss ride, but Riki had some malfuntions with his pack job. so we took the 79 south through Barrago Springs & rode through the desert to Niland. the weather was perfect & the scenery was awesome. we got to the Slab City Riot around 5pm. we set up camp over by Dan & his wife Tiffany. I guess we didn't realize it at the time, but we set up in some sexy lady's front yard by the name of Honey Pot. she was quite special & couldn't resist showing us her "honey pot" all nite & the next morning. Stu got her # & promised her more than he can deliver, but that's what being a bad ass biker is all about. our horse Kevin won the Coctagon & a cool $500 for his welts & scrapes. that's a pic of Mcgoo passing out the weapons for the main event. once again another great time on my knuckle & can't wait for the EDR next year.

Sturgis 2010

We left LA on Friday with 8 people, then we picked up my brother Dean & Todd where the 210 & 15 meet. EJ had some problems with his softail, but after tightening up his coil & some new spark plugs & wires, he was back on the road. We made it to St. George, UT that night. We picked up Kevin on the 2nd day, so that made 11. We stayed in Park City, Ut after riding about 350 miles. The next day while riding in Wyoming, we got pulled over for speeding, not signaling, etc... I had a lil' disagreement with the officer... I was leading & we were doing a good 75, maybe 80 most of the time, but nothing reckless. Thank God Grant took over negotiations cuz' they let us all off with a warning. We made it to Casper, WY on the 3rd day & had a great steak dinner. My goal was to make it to Sturgis monday for the Legends Ride in Deadwood & we made it with not a minute to spare. The ride left the minute we got there. It was a great 50 mile ride through the Black Hills & ended at the Buffalo Chip. But we took a slight detour cuz' I knew Matt Sorum & the Darling Stilleto's were playing @ Rock n' Rev. That was a blast & I must say, Hell Yeah & 3 Days Grace kicked some ass as well as the DS. We stay at this awesome lodge in Spearfish run by Eva, they really make us feel welcome while we are there. After a couple days of riding in Sturgis, Motley Crue @ the Chip, Mt. Rushmore & the Crazy Horse monument, it was time to start the ride home. Now I had a gig in Albq, NM saturday the 14th, so the plan was to ride from Sturgis to Denver, then on to Albq. Do the gig & then home to LA. EJ, Eric, Paul & Stu shipped their bikes home, so it was me, Riki, Grant, JD, Dean, Todd & Kevin for the epic ride home. Well JD's bike had an cam bearing failure, so he had to fly home from Cheyenne. So Kevin left for San Francisco from Cheyenne also. Dean & Todd split off in Denver, so it was myself, Riki & Grant left to do the long loop home. As far as I'm concerned, beside the Black Hills, New Mexico has some of the prettiest scenery we rode through. We try to stay off the interstates & ride the secondary roads & that was a wise decision this time. The gig in Albq. was great, I hung out with some old friends & caught most of the other bands on the bill. The next day we thought we'd ride to Flagstaff & spend the nite, but we got there @ noon & we gained an hour, so we had lunch & got back on our bikes. When we passed through Needles & it was 120 deg. We rode 750 miles that sunday, Albq, NM to LA, CA. Wow, was my ass sore & I now have a mack daddy farmers tan. I'm glad to be home, but i really love these long trips with a good group of guys. Next year maybe i'll do it on my Knuckle, we'll see...
