So I went down to CRC on a Thursday to start tracking ( April 23rd I think, lol its all a blur ) and was cooking along when Dee came to the studio to do his Vocals. I was told by Damon first and then later by Dee himself he likes to track pretty with just the producer and engineer. So I went out to the Bellwhether for some drinks and then to Eataly to kill some time. When I returned Dee had finished up but they were now tracking keyboards with the incredible Frank Lucas, who btw had introduced me to Damon a few years earlier which led to me playing guitar with Damon at several packed shows at Double Door Chicago and doing a Guitars and Blues Influence for Discovery Channel Europe interview jam segment ( it also featured Rick Nielsen, Buddy Guy) so I was told I would have to come back.
The next day we were going to play " We're not going to take it" at HVAC in Wrigleyville so I drove down and met up with Chuck White ( killer drummer and good friend) who was going to drum and his wife Kris for some dinner prior. Damon would handle Bass duties for this show. We were going to play at 7 but it got delayed until 10. It would not be a Rock n Roll show without some drama lol. Chucks SUV got towed as he watched. Incredible. Apparently even though they tow you after certian times, the meters still keep taking your money, funny how that is. I then got a $100 parking ticket to ad insult to injury. Now we have to play a show with one of the most Legendary Rock Vocalists of all time lol ha ha classic, Chuck and I were like WTF lol what else could go wrong.
