Been waiting for an authentic opportunity to pay my respects to #ChuckBerry this week, just found this amazing surprise in Ardmore Oklahoma on main street - As a kid in the 90s growing up in Australia I found out about Chuck thru "The Blues Collection" subscription mag from my local corner store newsagent up in North Balgowlah in Sydney!
Still in elementary (primary school) it was so cool cause it came with a cassette attached to the magazine, they would feature the most known work from the artist and cover an indepth bio and timeline of the career -I'll never forget the excitement and electricity i felt when I first heard him, I knew it was special instantly and def gravitated a lot to him naturally - just had that extra bounce and attitude that was really something else- so alive, with faster rockin tempos that were just so jumpin and popping- god bless ya Chuck I wasn't the only life you changed that's for damn sure - Rest In Peace dear brother 🏻fellow s

Got to take over Rock Radio in Oklahoma 92.7TheX tonite for a very random surprise visit off the cuff!! Short on air chat plus a show plug and spinning tunes
I was asked what do you want to play on the radio right now tonite!? As I'm dragged into the station before playing a gig tonite with @frankyperezandthetruth over @twofrogsgrill -I said play some live JIMI HENDRIX right now!!!!! Closest we got to that in their database was "Voodoo Chile" from Electric Ladyland and all the "Hits" we're also avail (always a buzz tho regardless) - but then we also put on the iconic @janesaddiction anthem "Jane Says" and a new Franky Perez & Christian Brady track off their Ep we're playing live at the moment "Dirty Finger"
An incredibly cool part of this surprise visit was the fact they had @scottweiland & the wildabouts "White Lightning" in there too so I absolutely had to shout out to Scott and get his vibes resonating!!! I had to indulge in that track for Scott, Jeremy & Tommy plus
That song was one of my favorite songs to play live with the Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts it's so heavy sludge blues and bitchin.
It was def a cool way to start the music vibes for the evening pre show!! got fired up to some killer iconic classic, alt and new bitchin badass rock from today- God bless rock n roll 🏻🏻 I live and breathe music - Ive played guitar and been a musician for a living as a touring musician, writer, teacher, artist & metaphysician for 20 years, most of my life I've spent on music traveling the world living my dreams - it's not over yet either!!!!! It's only just begun, peace to you & Jah bless you!!! Stay inspired 🏻

The setting sun yesterday in the OC as we're buying cheap bed sheets, pillow cases, bath towels, hand towels and a brand new bath matt from ROSS (even shopping can be beautiful sometimes!) found an amazing deal on a brand new bed made in USA down there in Anaheim off the Facebook market place (musician friendly yet decent) and im now living in a house in Silverlake in a nice neighbourhood "I have risen from the dust" I'm now transforming #PheonixRising as i start maturing into adulthood - life is good, yeah I'm looking forward to touring always but I'm also looking forward to more surfing, hiking, having bbq's with friends and having guests in my house over to hang 🤔 imagine that !! #California 🏻
