Ya know, it just keeps gettin’ better. I started out Weds. morning rehearsing for the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp Jam at Guitar Center In Hollywood. I had a great time, as I got to be reunited with some old friends and some of the best muso’s around. Kip Winger, Bruce Kulick, Vinny Appice, Phil Soussan, Robert Sarzo, Rudy Sarzo, Mark Hudson, Billy Sheehan, Alan Krigger , Teddy Andreadis and many more-It was a lot of fun. I sang that night with some of the boys and we had a blast.
Thursday night we played the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA, to a packed house, had a great time as always, and it was so nice to see so many familiar faces.

Friday we were at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano. The house again was stuffed and the reception both nights was overwhelming. I can’t thank all of you who have supported me through all I’ve been through and are so pleased to see me back doing what I love. I think of you all as family and I appreciate your being there. After both shows we did our "meet and greet", (free as always) and the reaction to the new band is more than I could have hoped for, they really are something.
Saturday night My manager Valerie, My wife Heather and myself went to the final party for the R-N-R Fantasy camp. We all had a great time hanging with old freinds and making new ones, and by the way, the Playboy Mansion looks as cool as I remember. I even decided, at the last moment, to get on stage with the "counselors" and do a little "Jumpin Jack Flash" – I guess when I see a stage, I feel I must be on it!
I want to thank David Fishoff for having us down and for putting on such a unique and cool event. What a super nice guy, I look forward to more Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp in the future.
Off until Saturday night at the Brixton in Redondo Beach-this will be a great show! Hope to see some of you there.
