WENT BACK TO THE CROSSROADS

You know you sang that song in your head…don’t deny it!

Returned to Crossroads last night, first show there in two years, and it was definitely a great time! My trio definitely kicked some serious ass, but props must be given to John Kiernan for playing alone to his backing tracks (and schooling me on how to power-stance on stage…I really am old!) And of course, it’s always a treat hearing Rob Balducci lay down his blues/funk/rock hybrid with his trio, and they were awesome too!!

Q&A A-OK!

Yesterday I drove up to Peekskill, NY to do the live Q&A on Metal Maiden Vicki’s show for Metal Euphoria. I must say, the scenery was gorgeous, the hills were winding and cool, and I got to make a pit stop in Cortland, which was the original stomping grounds of Ronnie James Dio.

Sigh… Read more
