YEAHHHH! Bring on the SPF and the Igloo coolers! Summer concert season has officially commenced! Got to host M3 Rock Festival in Maryland over the weekend with my rock radio show. Had a BLAST!
Can't even tell you my favorite part. Jackyl brought my cohost & I onstage during their set to do a shot of Jesse James Dupree's bourbon with them - AWESOME! Plus Steel Panther invited us to hang out in their dressing room for over an hour - we sat there and watched Twisted Sister's set with them, just hanging out, chatting - the Steel Panther guys are some of the nicest on earth! Not exaggerating. It was trippy to get to be with so many of my rock faves and hang out as friends. Bret Michaels, Jackyl, Loudness, Steel Panther, Danger Danger, Kix, WASP, Firehouse, Trixter, Tuff, Great White, Kings X, Steelheart = amazing.

LOOOOOOOOOOOVE this soundboard! And the sound guy was super cool. Let me poke around the controls and check out all the equipment. Music nerd HEAVEN!
....and as you can see PERFECT weather! This was the crowd just starting to form morning of the second day. If you ever get a chance to visit Merriweather Post Pavillion in Maryland - GO! Great venue, great scenery.
Next up: DAVE MATTHEWS BAND at Montage this month! See you there rock fans!!! I won't wear a Ratt t-shirt to that one. I promise.
