#PrayforVegas

#PrayforVegas

Yesterday, I was glued to the TV and Social Media waiting to hear from all of my friends in Vegas. It is my second home and devastated to see what happened to so many innocent young concert goers. Music is my life and could have easily been at that show. I have a place across the street at the MGM. My heart aches for all of the people and families involved. I have several friends with terrible stories of people who did not survive and it is heartbreaking. Love Las Vegas and pray for everyone involved. This picture was taken… Continue Reading

Reflect, Respect And #RIPChrisCornell: From A Friend and Fan Who Bleeds Rock N’ Roll

Reflect, Respect And #RIPChrisCornell

I wrote this Facebook post after learning of Chris Cornell’s untimely passing this week. It received a lot of feedback and comments so I thought I should share it here as well. Read it. Do it. Reflect. Respect. “Do I miss LA and working in the music business? I am asked this ALL the time. That city and the business has taken so much from me and so many I have known and loved along the way. In just the past few years, Glenn Frey, Scott Weiland and now Chris Cornell have all passed and I am proud to say… Continue Reading

Fashion: No Mo Boho

Fashion: No Mo' Boho

Attention Fashion Designers: I am over the “Coachella – inspired” BoHo BS look! 1. Coachella did begin as a concert or a place to hear GOOD music? Correct? Not as a fashion statement. 2. Boho is a no go on most. Word to most – you look like a couch. 3. I left my heart in SF a while ago but pretty sure it wasn’t the 60s. Please! I am so over this look and it is completely contradictory to my ROCKER music taste too btw. So, bring back glamour! I am not sure I would wear my derby day… Continue Reading

George Michael And Prince Tribute On The Grammy Awards®

Prince and George Michael Grammys

I just received a press release about the Grammy Awards and thought I would pass along the information entitled: “TRIBUTES SET FOR MUSIC ICONS GEORGE MICHAEL AND PRINCE ON THE 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS® “. As Metallica sings, this is “Sad But True” with so many music legends lost this past year. This tribute sounds like something not to miss honoring some of my favorite musical icons and it will truly be unforgettable. I am listening to Prince and George Michael as I write this blog post. Legends lost but I am so happy I saw both of these performers… Continue Reading

16 Guydlines To Overcoming Being A Workaholic

Aura picture

I have been working on being on not being a workaholic. How am I doing, you ask? Well, I have been making time for myself! The first part of this process started by getting my ass back in the gym. I can’t tell you how good I feel now that I have been moving around and active for the past month. In all fairness to me, I placed myself in my own prison a.k.a. a walking boot from an injury sustained while playing kickball. Yes, kickball. I’m a total ringer too but one bad step while running through the bag,… Continue Reading

Ovation’s On The Record With Mick Rock 8/2/15: Kings Of Leon, Flaming Lips, Patti LaBelle, & Josh Groban

Mick Rock is a British photographer, better known as “Man Who Shot the Seventies” because he has captured music royalty spanning the past few decades in all its glory. He refers to himself as the “One and only son of Mrs. Rock” and I love his snarky commentary as you can see in this clip from the new show on Ovation called On the Record with Mick Rock. The premier is this Sunday, August 2nd at 8PM EST and I will be tuning in for sure and tweeting along with the #MickRock. I love watching all shows that chronicle music… Continue Reading
