‪"I will survive!" 🎼 These friends & I will be sharing our tales of music biz "survival" (w others tba). Vai & others will be on a panel about streaming. Should be a good time (& hopefully informative). More info: loudwireawards.com/thesummit ‬ #loudwiremusicawards

Boston, PA & NY (upstate too): we'll be comin' soon! #AST East Coast Unbound Fall 2017 Mini-tour

McCartney in Brooklyn! 3 hrs straight, never took a break, sounded as good as ever w more energy than some half (or even a third) his age. Killed it on bass, piano, acoustic & electric guitar (with some cool early-Clapton sounding solos). Band is ridiculously good too, multi-instrumentalists. Hearing these songs done this well in this voice is a rare treat (whenever someone says they don't "get" or don't "like" The Beatles. I try my best to be polite but can only think "What the f--k is wrong with you?" 😉) It doesn't get much better than this. Welcome to the hood #SirPaul

‬Fun night of jazz/rock/prog In D.C: Brand X supported by JGP, followed by joint meet & greet w both bands. True story: Brand X are a legendary British band from the 70s whose original drummer was a scraggly fellow named Phillip Collins. In the 80s, Collins, who's on most of their albums, shortened his hair and his name (to Phil) & found he was very good at writing/singing catchy pop tunes. Two original guys are left, guitarist John Goodsall and bassist Percy Jones, they sound as good as ever. The rest are later generation guys including my dude & sometime drummer @kennygrohowski who replaces Kenwood Dennard (alumni of Miles & Jaco). Future Brand X reunion tours are in the works. As a longtime fan (now thrilled to call them friends), I can say this band sounds fantastic - catch them if you can.

About to play the Birchmere, legendary DC Venue, in support of legendary instrumental band Brand X (w JGP, Getter, Holzman, Egan, Bryant). This gent is a fan (of my jazz & metal stuff) who came up for a selfie while I was shooting...turns out this pic works better w him in it.

My view a couple weeks back, Mex City. Thoughts to everyone there in aftermath of huge earthquake (and Puerto Rico too, now engulfed in Hurricane). Scary times

Great moment last night at MSG: @scorpions pay tribute to Lemmy with @motorheadmusic's "Overkill" done Scorps style (it WORKS) 👌

Shampoo commercial? Me & my Mega-Bros @davidellefsonbass & @kikoloureiro after they demolished MSG pre-Scorpions (great gig all around)

‪Upgraded to Logic Pro X. Also took home my "big gig rig" (Kemper Profiler). Recording tone sounding HUGE. Don't know what I'd do without online tutorials on this stuff (if you've done one...THANK YOU!)‬ @kemperamps

#TBT (early 90s-ish)

Little bit of #UltimateTexasJam last night - a Texas tune (Texas Flood), my tribute to SRV. All evening there were fun jams for a great cause & much needed $$ was raised for Texas relief. Forgot my hat (see earlier post) but not sure if would've stayed on. 😉 Hope to do more #Blues in the future (hat next time) 🎩 #guitaristsofinstagram
