Good cause :) Nice to see rockers giving back :)  Alot of kids get into to music a way to express and vent their emotions. Sometimes those kids will also choose to medicate those emotions for all the obvious reasons and the usual cliche's:  rock = booze, drugs etc., blah blah blah... A bit unfair but not always unfounded....anyway.... combine that recipe with young people who dont have the life expereince to handle adversity and there you have it:  a one way ticket down the hole...

its one thing to say "you'll be ok" . its totally another to be able to say "Ive been where you are"...   Thaks for having this program available for kids. 

Kudos for those that can stay sober when the accessibility is so easy. And double when you can give someting back in that setting. ;)   DSS

I posted this in Dave's section but thought I would add it here too, that Dave is definitely confirmed to be at the benefit concert. It will be great to see him again. Seems like it's been forever!

Great show last night. Great to have had a chance to talk to the guys again and finally get to meet Gilby Clarke!

Here's a few pictures from the show and my 2 videos. The sound is pretty bad. I think because I was right in front of a speaker, not that I"m complaining!



And my video of Mama Kin

Great photos and videos!   :)

Have to say, it was great to see Slash, Duff, Matt, and Dave on stage together.  As well as Slash, Duff, Matt, and Gilby.   Nothing like it in the world!
