Hello again rockers, "Mista Bone" here to fill you in on the goings on over the weekend. It all started off with a sold out show at the fabulous Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset strip in Hollywood.

It was the last few shows of the "America Rocks" Tour and it was fuckin outstanding. Great White’s original drummer, and my old best friend,  Gary Holland flew in with his really cool son Brynner, and Gary sat in during "On Your Knees" .  It was great…just like old times, didn’t miss a beat, I had almost forgotten what a great drummer he is. A few days before the show we took the boat out, the three of us and got to spend some time catching up, of course we had already been in touch and they had even flown out to a prior show.  What an honor and a blast to play with my old friend again, time stopped for just a bit,and some tears welled up and life was especially good. Can’t wait to have them out to the boat again and visit. Gary has become a fine man and father with a wonderful and charming son.

As if it could’nt get better, our former bassist ( known and loved by all) Tony Montana came up at sat in on my namesake tune "Mista Bone" and it felt like 1989. He looked, played and sang great!  It was so wonderful to share the stage with him again, he’s a true "Rockstar" and a really nice guy. I miss him and look forward to doing some stuff together in the future.

My band and I had a wonderful time and the staff and management are a class act, can’t wait to do another show at the iconic Whiskey and I thank evereyone there, we had a blast. We filmed the show to be released for a free download soon. When the night was over we hopped on our tour bus and headed to Sacramento. Another fantastic show with a packed house filled with crazy Northern Californians. We were all looking forward to a great show, even though my boys in  Faster Pussycat were noticably abscent and the Bullet Boys were stuck in traffic.  When they finally arrived we were just getting ready to go on, so I suggested they go on after us and we would shorten our set to give them enough time.  Well, something happened between my buddy Marq T. and the promoter and when we finished they were gone. What the … ? But everyone who was there had a blast and we can’t wait to see you all again.

After that,  back on the bus and down to Fresno, another great show and great people. I’ve always enjoyed playing there. I love our fans and am constantly reminded how blessed I am, especially on a beautiful sunny southern California day like this, sitting here on my boat.

I wish you all peace, love, joy and health and hope to see you soon.

 Keep rockin’  till then.

Captain Jack "Mista Bone" Russell
