cool photo by Tessa Angus! She also did the photos for my album and some throughout the website.
with J'Anna, my talented buddy in the RS band.
Rockin' With Rod. Making music with a rock n roll legend! Something I'm honored and proud to be doing.
With Joni Mitchell
Hanging with one of my heroes Joni Mitchell.
Playing a solo under Rod's watchful eye, he doesn't miss a thing!
Guitar legend and very gracious gentleman, Carlos Santana. (Notice Jimi Hendrix on his shirt!)
Jeff Beck! Got to meet my hero and in my opinion the finest guitar player on the planet (since Jimi left anyway.) I'm not sure what he's thinking here, something like "how the hell did Rod Stewart's guitar player infiltrate my dressing room?!"
Do you think I'm sexy? That's the song, not a question.
The mid-show acoustic set, with some great graphics by Mark Payne aka "Pope."
Ron Wasserman and I holding our ASCAP awards for Hot In Cleveland. He got an additional award for Spongebob Squarepants.
With my good pal Kevin Savigar in London. Producer/writer for Rod and former keyboard player. He and his wife Sue, came to our O2 shows there.
Carlos sits in on "I'd Rather Go Blind" and tears it up!
With Wendy Malick, Betty White, and Valerie Bertinelli on the set of Hot In Cleveland. (The other co-star Jane Leeves went missing just before the photo was taken…Jane leaves, get it?)
In NYC, taping the PBS show Soundstage with Idina Menzel.
On stage at the Glasgow 2014 Common Wealth games. 60,000 in the stadium and another billion watching around the world. My bass playing pal, Conrad took the photo…"hurry dude, we are about to start!" (from Wikipedia, "The estimated worldwide television audience was one billion, with 9 million in the UK."
J'Anna, Dave, Conrad, Chuck and me at the Jeff Beck show in Detroit. Some talented band mates and wonderful people too. I love you too, Chuck!
Another guitar hero of mine, the amazing and humble, Eric Johnson.
I'm leaving Las Vegas....
At a Buddhist Temple in Chiang Mai Thailand with Sarah.
Clowning at the Curacao North Sea festival, waiting for Bruno Mars to play. He and the band were GREAT!
On the set of Hot In Cleveland with Jennifer Love Hewitt. A few years before she was a guest on H.I.C, I co-wrote a few songs with her and played on her record. (I've since had the creepy small boy's face removed from my shoulder, it's healing nicely.)
Rod and Don boogie, while I concentrate. Conrad wonders about his Apple stock, (i mean while playing great bass, he's like that.)
Playing the United Center in Chicago, my original hometown.
Wrap party for The Soul Man, with Ron Wasserman and Cedric the Entertainer.
30,000 people at the Dublin show. Yes!
One of my '90s era LA bands, called Drill. We rocked, then I left but they kept going and re named themselves Static X. They had a long successful career until Wayne Static's untimely death in 2015. RIP Wayne.
Maggie May solo. ("Hey, can you guys please hold it down back there, I'm doing the Ronnie Wood solo!"
My brother goes to prom and I hold my first great guitar and constant companion, a Fender stratocaster!
My family on vacation. My sister Amy, her husband Rod, Sarah and me, brother Mark, father Chuck, mother Helen, and Susan my bro's wife.
