NAMM! NAMM! NAMM! Hot Damn! — Day 1 (Pics)

NAMM was an incredible success!

I got tons of opportunities to talk about my upcoming books and potential screenplays and I have serious interest and participation!

So, enough talk…

Let’s get on with the pictures!

Image

We’ll just open with a darn good picture of Cliff Williams, AC/DC and me!

But let’s back track a little!

Here’s me — too excited and getting ready!

ImageImageImageImage

The show started

Image

on Thursday, but I happen to get there on Wednesday so that I could get all checked in and ready for the next day’s events.

Image

In front of the big stage where the Legends concert will be Friday night.

I just couldn’t wait!Over 35 artists from legendary bands like The Motels, Three Dog Night, Blue Oyster Cult, Iron Maiden, Asia, Yes, Bad Company, BB King, Quiet Riot and more!

Did you know that this is the NAMM’s 7th annual living legends concert? I just hope it doesn’t rain!

Let it be known, that the (non-convention) hotel events start on Wednesday and serious partying begins immediately!

And, of course…

Image

The shoes!

Everyone including artists, execs, videographers, photographers, manufacturers… Literally everybody that makes the music industry come together are here under this one roof!

Wow!

I can’t wait for tomorrow’s pics!! ;-)

So, we’ll just say… There’s nothing to be any mountain biking for me today!

XOXO

This is just a test. Only a test. Do not be alarmed. ;-) 4

Oops!!

This is just a test. Only a test. Do not be alarmed. ;-) 3

This is just a test. Only a test. Do not be alarmed. ;-)

DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING!!

DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING!

I can’t tell what a week it has been.

It was incredible.

But, not in a good way.

I just got out of the hospital for a severe gastrointestinal bacteria infection.

Not the flu.

I repeat BACTERIAL.

Like little bugs, one gets in and they multiply at such a rapid rate, and your body is trying to expel it– too scary.

It was so severe, and unrelenting, that literally there was a moment when I thought it was gonna be like the Muppets man, Jim Henson. He had a gastrointestinal infection, and if he would have just gone into the hospital for antibiotics he would never died.

So, as my natural exfiltration of both ends is me was going on for hours and hours and hours, it seemed like the only thing to do was to go to the ER.

I have never been so sick in my entire life.

And, as I lied on the hospital bed, I was so grateful for technology and antibiotics. I thought to myself–

What do people do before antibiotics?

PEOPLE DIED!

That sucks, man.

Seriously sucks.

I was advised by the doctors, however, that this was something that I must’ve picked up in a PUBLIC AREA.

Meaning…

Holding onto a grocery cart…

Touching a bathroom door…

Pressing an elevator button… You name it.

YIKES!

I always thought that if I didn’t use all of antibacterial soaps, and just used regular soap, that it would build my immunity system to fight off just regular types of bacteria.

However… This was not a regular type of bacteria.

It’s called or fecal oral rabid transmission.

Let me repeat that… (If you can stomach it, literally!)

It’s called FECAL ORAL RABID TRANSMISSION.

Yuck.

SUPER YUCK!

So as I was laying in the hospital bed, after they admitted me from ER, I was rethinking my life and how I might change some of my day-to-day processes.

That is totally F-ed!

Just because somebody out in the public, I can’t seem to keep their hands and body clean, and spread their sickly germs all over the place — I had to face God.

And trust me, I did.

So near to tell you, when you see those people wearing gloves out in public and those little facemasks, I don’t think it’s going to be me. But I totally understand now, why they wear those things.

Because getting seriously ill is scary.

I don’t want my life to change too much, just because I had this extreme infection.

I don’t want to be a prisoner, trying to keep myself away from germs.

But honestly,

I’m gonna think twice about where I touch. If my elbow can hit the elevator button, that’s what my elbow’s going to do.

No biggie. Just enough to keep me well.

So after those two glorious days in the hospital, plus all the hours that I spent in ER, let this be a lesson to all of us:

– to wash our hands

– to be careful where we touch

– don’t touch your face eyes and nose more than you need to. Those are main spots where germs get in

– don’t use my makeup at the makeup counters, you don’t know who’s been there before

Plus, this is a horrible flu season… All these things may keep us healthier.

I’m still on antibiotics, and I am TRULY GRATEFUL FOR THEM.

Stay well, my friends!

Love is out there, but so are seriously freaky germs.
