in the splendor of knowing that someday your offspring will indeed throw out the occasional bag of garbage, bring home a report card that's brings a smile to your face, perhaps shovel the path in the snow on that blizzardous day in January.
Salute! Now pass the mozzarella!

This is a response to an interesting blog entry of a valued fan and facebook friend.
Just thought I'd share.
First, I want to thank you for your support and inclusion of myself, my band mates from Journey, Tall Stories and Tyketto and my music in regards to your programing at your Pirate radio station. I can't say thanks enough.
Secondly, it's not everyday that someone goes to bat for another person in the manner in which you did for me in your recent Blog. It takes courage, conviction, passion and in plain english, and to quote an AC/DC song "Big B---s" to stand up for the under dog.
The public perception of celebrity, no matter big of small is often not what it appears. It is mostly what our media, the PR specialists and spin doctors care to manipulate it and wish it to be on behalf of their clients or their bottom line.
I must however, for the record say that although you may have portrayed me in an extremely favorable light, you may have given Axel the short end of the stick. One he may or may not be deserving of.
Please keep in mind he is a very big target and has been dodging bullets for quite some time. I can't help but think many of them were and are not warranted. I know this from my own experiences. We're all not perfect. We quasi or bona fide celebrities. Perhaps Rock and Rollers if any, should get a pass if only a slight one, when it comes to morality or character for that matter. After all, it was build on the back of Sex, Drugs and ... , well, rebellion, non conformity and certainly not particularly the Ten Commandments. You get the picture. Besides, at the end of the day, all we really want to do is just make music and have a little fun along the way.
So, finally, my point is merely whereas I will graciously accept your generous compliments, I cannot without coming to Mr. Roses defence. After all, he and his compadres, Guns and Roses did give us one of the genres finest moments with "Appetite for Destruction", which in my opinion, at the time, may have single handedly saved Rock and Roll as we know it. Crap, it doesn't get any "realer" than that my man.
So, again, my hats off to you Steve. Cut Axel some slack and thank you very much. Give my regards to the great state of Pennsylvania.
P.S. Please be aware, take care, and if possible take action against Breast Cancer.
Join me at "Journey to the Cure" and above all have yourself checked as well as the one(s) you love.

Hope you're all well and enjoying the beautiful day that it is. While all is well in OUR world here's a sad slice of reality that touches all too many of our lives and the people around us. Breast Cancer. Our Moms, our wives, sisters and daughters.
