Just back from a week with Motley Crue in Oklahoma. As usual the fans were amazing. Ever since I started coming to OK in 2007 for the first Rocklahoma I’m blown away how passionate they are for hard rock music. Motley’s set was a warm up for the Vegas residency. If you follow on Twitter I sent many photos and the set list out. The set was the same every night. A mix of deep track and hits with the opener “Red Hot”! The stage show was stripped down a bit by Crue standards. This was more about getting the music down. Now the band has rehearsal in Vegas to get the show down, which Nikki told me will be heavy on fire the entire time. It’s a tight 80 minute set and I look forward to now seeing it with the new production in Vegas next month (I will be signing my new book in Vinyl right next to the Joint in The Hard Rock Casino just before Motley plays 10/4). Had a chance to spend time with all the guys who seemed to be in great spirits. Hung mostly with Nikki for a couple days and it was great to talk music and catch up some (YES I have invited him on TMS many times! Up to him when he wants to do it!). Huge thanks to the band and their crew for being super cool with me being on these shows. Was a great time and the fans were truly amazing at all 3 gigs. Also thanks to the promoters for bringing me out and making me part of this.
Was also great to see the new STP who opened the show in OKC. Amazed how much Chester looks and moves like Weiland on stage. Spent time talking with the guys who seem very happy about this great bands future with him on board.
My new book is out 1 WEEK FROM TODAY! You can pre order now on Amazon and get it next Tuesday anywhere you buy books physical or digital! Signings kick off one week from tonight at The Hard Rock inside the merch store in Times Square NYC at 6:30. All confirmed signings listed on the home page. So psyched for you to all see VOL 2! Just an FYI there is NO admission of any kind needed at any signing. Just come down! I hope to add more as my schedule permits but please if you can buy the book in it’s first week or release or pre order it now. That would be a big help in my first week chart position. I’m happy to sign books anytime anywhere I come to a city, but no idea outside of the confirmed signings posted now where and when more will be added. So buy it now and you can always bring it to a signing and happy to sign it. Hope to see you all at the upcoming signing events and appreciate your support buying the book anywhere you buy books. Also the 1st book will also be for sale at all signings. The new book will NOT be available direct from me via this site for a couple months. So please order /buy now or come to the signings. Thank you!
