Steven Tyler and Bassett!
Had a blast of a backstage Aerosmith experience in my hometown of Atlantic City back in September! Shook hands and said hello to some of the legendary band members and had some great bonding moments with one of my personal musical hero's, Steven Tyler.
He is not only a legendary singer and musician but he has a huge heart of gold and he was so gracious and cool to us backstage, sharing stories, letting me thank him for his inspiration and sharing the rock and roll love!
He even trusted me with his iconic scarf draped mic to sing a chorus on 'Same Old Song and Dance'...He has changed my life numerous times before and he did it again this magical night!
Thank you for everything Steven, much love and light to you!
Introducing Tak on the Bass!
Met this cool kat Tak at a gig and immediately dug his mustache and his groovy bass playing. We joined forces and have been playing gigs and recording together and its been a lot of fun! Tak hails from Japan, but had lived in Dublin, Ireland for a while and considers himself Japanese-Irish. He's also a ramen-chef specialist on the side and a big foodie in general!
PS. Guinness beer is the way to his heart!
