It was hot, really hot last Friday when I jumped in the car and fought Friday traffic on the 15 Freeway. If you don’t live in Los Angeles you cannot imagine how many people pile in their cars to drive the 15 on their way to Las Vegas.
But who am I to complain? I was headed to the Glen Hellen Pavillion; just off the 15 freeway for an afternoon in the sun at Michael and Sammy’s pre-tour rehearsal. This would be the last fine tune before they head out for an entire summer of concerts. They had invited some close friends and family to watch the run-through of songs and last changes.
Sammy, who I had not seen since the Barrett-Jackson auction; when we sold his Shelby was in great spirits. It was either he was ready for a summer tour or he had already hit the Cabo Wabo tequila bar? Michael was trying out each of his bass guitars and tuning his bonspeed designed Ford GT bass he will be using this summer.

These car guys will be away from their cars all summer, so support them by attending as many shows as possible! If you are up front where Michael can hear you, give a shout out for bonspeed, Michael will surely give you the big thumbs up!
