River of Deceit Tribute/Cover

Layne Staley and I share the same birthday, August 22nd. He was born 4 years after me in 1967. When he passed in 2002 it was a shock and a heartbreak. Recently with all of the suicides, I thought this would be a good time to redo this classic. RIP.

Euro Tour

I’m back in Vegas and it is HOT! But that’s not stopping me, I actually went out for a run this morning. I’m not going to let a little jet lag get to me. Too much going on and I’m on a roll.

I got back from an awesome tour with Kill Ritual in Europe. We rocked Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, and France. We met a lot of new friends and can’t wait to do it again. After the tour, I went and hung out with my friends from Souls of Rock for a couple of weeks in Switzerland. There were so many good times that it is hard to pinpoint what was best. If I had to pick a moment it would be seeing my favorite singer ever, Ian Gillian, and Deep Purple. I had to pinch myself several times as I’m watching them with the Swiss Alps in the background.

I’ll have more updates soon on what I’m up to but for the moment keep following me here, Facebook and on Instagram.

Also, keep listening to my music on my music players.

RIP Chris Cornell

I was woken at 1 am this morning to the devastating news that Chris Cornell was gone.
I still can’t believe it.
 
My heart goes out to Chris’ family who I’m sure are still in shock.
Send them as much love and good vibes as you can muster.
 
By far, Cornell was the most influential singer to me of the 90’s… and helped pave the road for me as a power vocalist. I remember living on Cape Cod, working at my friends gas station, pulling the night shift and listening to my Soundgarden, Louder than Love cassette over and over again…
Today I will be doing the same.
 
Sleep well old friend. Everything will be ok now.
