4/10: MORE FROM VEGAS, GENERATION AXE, FASTER PUSSYCAT, MORE.
Huge thanks to all the great fans that attended my signing/meet & greet yesterday here in Vegas at Delano. This was done super last minute so I was worried about the turnout but you guys did not let me down! I had a line for 2 hours of people taking a photo, getting something signed, or just saying h. Just awesome! I also sold out of all of my books. Remember if you’d like a signed personalized copy of either of my books you can always order them directly from me here on this site. Just check the info under the Books tab. I’ll write what you want and send it out. I want to thank Paul Davis at MGM and all at Delano and Mandalay Bay for having me. Thanks also to Aiden Ashley for running my merch, Tammy Houston, and Jim Florentine for stopping by. Also met a ton of fans from S America and Mexico and I appreciate all the kind words and support. Lots of good wishes for TMS and as soon as we have news I will let you guys all know.
Didn’t end up going to the second night of GnR. So much going on out here. Tesla played who I love and I missed that! I went and checked out Generation Axe which features Tosin Abasi, Nuno Bettencourt, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai. If you are a guitar player this tour is a dream. There are a lot of notes! Nuno even joked they made a deal to get paid by the note. As someone who doesn’t play but appreciates great players I still enjoyed this show very much. But I’d be lying if I said it was for everyone. It is a barrage of amazing playing for 2 1/2 hours. So if that’s your thing check it out for sure. What does make this cool is the jamming among the different guys and seeing their styles blend. Each guy crosses over with who comes out next and that makes for some cool moments for sure.
Also swung by Vamp’d late last night and caught some of my buds Faster Pussycat. They kicked off their tour here last night and are likely coming to a club near you soon. Fun night of rock sleeze and it was great seeing them as always. Good to see a strong turnout as well considering GnR was playing the same time.
Also went and said hi to Vince Neil Friday at his place here in Circus Circus. VN has been in the news some with this Nic Cage deal, but I just dropped in and said hi and met some boxing legends he had hanging out at his place for an event.
One more night here in Vegas then I fly to LA tomorrow. Have some work there Tuesday and Wednesday (details TBA soon) and then home next Thursday. Since I am traveling my SiriusXM show will be recorded. I know people are just nuts for GnR news and I will share what I can in my podcast this Thursday. More soon.
