Enjoying Sinatra music early today. Grew up with Sid Mark on “Sundays with Sinatra”. Found out – he’s still on! Coming up on 65 years. Click here for more.
My man, Cecil, made me a sign to help inspire my writing each and every day. It’s a Beautiful Day to Write a Book. Go check out his stuff via Instagram.
- Red – My Uncensored Life in Rock by Sammy Hagar is one of my favorite books. Probably because I never expected what I did when reading it. Yes – you get the inside stories of all the fun behind the scenes of a concert; the journey Sammy had becoming the Red Rocker; and, of course, the turmoil within Van Halen, while also the incredible connection that produced music magic. You get all that. BUT – it was Sammy’s businesses endeavors that transfixed me. After leaving Van Halen, he went all in with the tequila business and came out with Cabo Wabo. The other members of Van Halen were offered stakes in the company, but they passed. Whoops. The one that totally got me was him designing up a new mountain bike and calling it the Rock Hopper. I had one of those bikes and didn’t even know it was Sammy related. Very inspiring book to keep getting back at it and going for it.
- Reminds me of one of my upcoming books that I plan on reading this year: Total F*cking Godhead: The Biography of Chris Cornell by Corbin Reiff. Can’t wait!
Reminder: I’m doing the 5K run for the St. Jude Walk/Run in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 25th.
