Hank's Saloon, the classic rock dive at 46 3rd Avenue is sadly meeting the wrecking ball in a couple of weeks. To bid farewell, the Lonesome Prairie Dogs with LK on pedal steel will be giving it a final send off on Sunday, December 9, from 6 to 8 PM. Come early for that Coney Island cowboy Sean Kershaw, from 1 to 4 during the Honky Tonk brunch, and then a Honky Tonk jam from 4 to 6. Tonkin' be honking'!! 🤠 #hankssaloon #seankershawandthenewjackramblers #lonesomeprairiedogs #pedalsteel

Village Oldies, circa 1973: Bleecker Bob, Broadway Al, Laguardia Len, and Jason. "Anyone need any help or are you all helpless?" Rest in Peace, Bob, your heart of gold always shined through a gruff exterior, the brotherly love we shared for each other. I'm playing the Flamingos' "Golden Teardrops" for you. 💫

GLAM SLAM, HOT DAMN!!! Gonna get out the glitter and salute the most star-spangled era of pop-rock at the City Winery this Friday. Curated by Ed Rogers and Joe Hurley, great house band including Tony Shanahan and James Mastro, and those beyond-catchy songs. I'll be doing Sweet's "Teenage Rampage," one of me faves. 👩‍🎤

Me and Richard Lloyd sharing some brotherly love backstage at his show at Bowery Electric, just down the street from where we rocked many a time at CBGB ‘neath the Marquee Moon. 🌑

Ready for a yak-a-thon with rock historian Steve Blush at Coney Island Baby next week. I won't take the fifth, except on the rocks. The whole truth, nothing but the truth, so help me Jimi ✋ Let the interrogation begin!

Flashback a couple of weeks to the premiere of the Carmine Street Guitars documentary at the New York Film festival. Waited until I got a good portrait of my Bowerycaster made by Rick Kelly salvaged from a ceiling beam at 184 Bowery, a building from the mid nineteenth century. Left it unfinished, watch out for splinters!! From l. to r.: Dave Hill of the Sadies, Rick Kelly himself, artisan wood burner Cindy Hulej, director Ron Mann, LK, and Jim Jarmusch. #carminestreetguitars  #ronmann #jimjarmusch  #bonesofoldnewyork  #rickkellyguitars

Total treat @akwoodulookyhere #ssippihalloween

So great to jam out with Robyn Hitchcock on the encore at Bowery Ballroom. Played a couple of Beatle tunes and a rockin’ version of “I Wanna Destroy You” that brought me back to when I first saw him at the Mudd Club with the Soft Boys in the early 80s. Finished up the night riding shotgun in the dj booth with soul clapper Jonathan Toubin at Home Sweet Home!!! Yeah baybee...

Mighty Manfred, Palmyra Delran, and little ol' me, who can be heard bouncing off the Sirius XM satellite on Monday and Tuesday nights, 8 PM to midnight eastern, spinning the best in rock and roll and pop and soul and bopping' the blues! 📻📻📻 #undergroundgarage #mightymanfred #palmyradelran #boweryelectric #siriusxm
