Mr. scary weekdays three to seven on Boston's rock station WA AF. Based San Diego are here. Any guy that right Mistress Carrie yeah -- said hell kind of name is that on you know we can't help more iron. You know nothing but trouble all. OK well I'm not really look for trouble right now when I get psyched about this role is what I doubt. I'm good I'm. Kind of in a kind of a blue state here at California managed freezing rain opened an account -- is that you talked about she no car. This is California 3020 miles from the coast. I love it -- yesterday and Boston it was like 72 degrees and sunny so I'll take this kind of winter any bigger week. I'm -- welcome back the other data that. Is that we are now are you all get out of California and northern California that would be adopted northern confuses southern cal there's two different two different -- you know. Places to have -- kinds of people believe me. I always like to ask musicians where they arc -- most times they don't even know. Well I was on tour -- but it's. But at that you might get that kind of. -- think about it. You know but no I'm not on tour have at home and we're about to start rehearsing -- said sure -- -- and that. Mum -- -- -- You still the same like mid century modern funky house. Whoa whoa hold on here now which -- synchronous darker yeah that the bottom of the driveway. So what I wish I were still living in the house but unfortunately eight months ago I did some big renovation to it. And I'm still not moved back in in my damn near lake where freak in our rental house. And it's just act is just another story. I ask because I just bought a house recently in in New England like mid century modern funky houses are pretty tough to come by but I bought one like. It pretty much yet it's not all cement but it's mostly glassed in skylight and funky angles in guests -- felt like a sore thumb appear. They have -- house at a well it still works in California even though it does not. Pettigrew with the equity you don't Marin county is really all about -- everything's going to be would. And and mine is -- cement. Concrete and glass there is no wood in the damn house except maybe. My head you know putting in my pants. -- You have a name for your house right you. -- put a name for mine and I can't think of anything. Have. It's cooler when people -- their houses. Have to see the house and I would may become -- media can help you but right now just it's not my head I'd just Alice. The mistress and the house of mistress. So right out your home and this is what you do when your time did you call radio stations to. So we lack a certain number of my time up I'm in my studio you know -- -- -- -- in the wobble as we -- -- record. We hang out it's like kind of a men's club. -- ladies welcome. The wanna really see a -- YouTube videos. Yes yes they are so I'm there at my. Recording complex and -- -- and when I'm down with you. I'm going to go in crank up my list on my Marshall stack and -- -- play and sing a little bit on the jamming -- people voice. In good shape so that. You know at the drop of the hat I can I can sync it up the way -- is different than other people you know some people seeing real mellow but you know I'm a screamer. And you know have dispute over the top of you know Van -- guitars and and just such data guitars and stuff like that I I really have to push myself so you can't just do that you've -- to drop happens wake up -- predicament of those zinc. You have the warm and like keep your voice in good shape -- you -- voice sounds fifteen minutes you'll be overseeing the two hours. You always hear about musicians like most recently a -- had to come to Boston and have a vocal -- worked on and it is that like your greatest fear is having to have a problem with your vocal chords. Yeah I can only and always a voice wouldn't is that going. To do until. Wherever it yeah this is I've never had anything like that ever happened. I mean only thing that's ever asked me was -- it was because I was sick or. Our party into heart which I don't do that much when I'm really working you know among -- I really -- -- I tried my hardest not to. Hurt myself and so. But that's spelled with some ever had a problem but then you know actually just take a week -- so often comes back. But the whole. Screaming oh this is over -- -- screaming over screaming guitars and -- about it honestly guys in overtime if -- -- more than two or three weeks. I kinda gotta start over again guys rehearse a couple of days to warm up really good once several actions Green automatic NC I can't put it by frequent sleep okay. That's impressive because of I have like one night out at one of your show is screaming at you on stage I can't talk -- a week that's what you get. Which is what Tennessee that's when you talk for a living. And that we don't it's hard to that. Like comes with the ticket. In Kabul or -- -- that and then. When we played a couple of wobble or by -- several instances saying people I mean honest to god. I I abide by the third I I hold the microphone up you know for the courses some songs like -- It is about -- Wolves element has. That just blow their voices out itself but -- everybody you know -- need -- on the street. On the between Kabul and -- it. And everything I can't I can't talk -- -- -- -- massive -- -- put up a. And it's all your fault -- -- part of it is every time they -- just like in Hammack. With a Margarita -- not doing anything not. Speaking about anything not getting ready to go anywhere because every time. I read something about you or talk to you you've got something new going on do you ever sleep or rest. -- But you have but you know once without. Whirlwind. You know honesty that -- everybody thinks you know and I'm like some kind of a businessman and stuff. I have so many ideas and just create about my horrible business. I I just have ideas and I can't stand not to do and just one of those people that it's like have a song. Idea here you know it's like I can't not write that songs like medical. Gravity -- incidents on their record you know -- but I can't rest and -- I -- -- -- -- -- but when I'm in between. Are you. And -- with no we have it is certain enemies yet. When I'm in between stuff. I can lane and the -- -- reason these living to face of the under a country back in class of coconuts. I climb up all a coconut tree and get the it's that the -- that's down and machete in -- -- and bam I'm human nature boy and. So right now let's let's look at all your projects you're obviously gone out on the road with the selectors are going to be -- to your feet down on May sixteenth. -- get ready for the -- Yeah you got out our rob coming out and did. It it's out already. Earlier -- sit around drink get a -- Is a -- jealous and now you're showing love to -- is there you know some kind of sibling rivalry. I saw particular company and your -- and that I got. -- board that I didn't plan on making Rahm it is that was in Hawaii on vacation you know as usual I'm always trying to take some time off. And I read into that it looks just like leave it makes. Vodka and in Hawaii and any said I said well -- He Shoney's it is his -- stories in this sugar cane fields like just sugar -- everywhere. And we're out there I'm out there -- this year came -- but it often. Chop it up for my kids sitting eventual and it's really good stuff we're trip and hope it became less a security about making -- -- I can make anything this guys ridiculous. And I'm going OK if you want to make his supremacy -- He made me some it was the best drama everything's in my life I said all of my gut public if you make -- is that is much we got sugar -- of yourself. I decided to make -- run in the Hawaiian of the cane sugar from Hawaii which is the purest. Cleanest most pristine came on the planet and that's what makes -- run better than anybody else's. Otherwise I wouldn't be make it but people say I'm the one guy looked fine lines and only consequences something. And it goes through -- so what did you make one and -- because I can't make points better than a harsher. Our reach for these guys that you know -- so. But I decided that I can make better run and everyone else separate incidents on do it in -- most famous speech by around and they -- will be around eventually for the just came out Californian of that. So what another book. I will not -- And if you'd told all your stories. On the and commodities actually have the bill that some of -- -- -- would flock back to the not the -- book was who was once again I didn't plan on right I certainly did have one plan haven't number one you're trying his best seller that was like. But not on my radar and Summitt said it was still the purposes but I thought about it for years but I never I just it's so much work to write a book. You realize man make it -- CD -- -- K. Okay I mean I can -- some thought -- but this sit down until all the stories in and translated you know and to. And to Paper read it -- this stocks that are are built and this isn't true and what was it not about you know it -- go back and re writing and you know and there were times where I actually read a chapter towards inevitably going. That's that's wrong but who cares and -- -- -- and that was wore out in that night but denied. Sucked up get up in the middle of I can't live with this site got to change that we're you know the person's name is show bill or whatever action. It's all legal typos is that he's got to do with its pain in the neck. But I love the book. It seems to me that it would be a weird thing instead. You know when you're working on music with the chicken foot guys it's a collaboration you're having fun but there's got to be a certain amount of I don't know just feeling weird that Blake. You're writing all this stuff down and and that everyone else is gonna like here into your private party your brain. Yep that's why pull the plug on three books before that let you know there's all kinds of reasons why I didn't do the other books but I finished two books myself. The Wasilla and as someone else wrote a book about that result trash. And called it like to be on my biography and going you know can't somebody else can write you forget by Rick if I was dead baby but as long as -- -- and always gonna write a -- -- -- opinion of who what I am. So I think I have -- -- and and the -- -- -- and and it's it's. It's a little bit disturbing you you know you re I'd read like chapter thirteen or something you know like -- some. Inside Van -- stuff presumptive having going oh can't but didn't go on like got to say it. It's what happens you know -- -- what I did and in in the I got kids you know that. -- got it teenaged daughter now you know and. -- -- -- -- -- Turns sixteen next month and I'm gone. Well my guess she heard her friends are gonna read this -- sure that they did. It's that cell you know what I don't at some point you -- come clean you know honestly. I think the reason. I wrote the book finally was because of all the controversy between you know -- Van -- the van Hagar era. And edit and and people come to -- the streets or Kabul or anywhere -- go -- Sammy you know why can't should any event together if they want you guys make a new record lunch it is once is that I'm going. I would -- so. But it's so hard you can't say it with every person and explain to them why. It was a work -- So I that this kind of puts that to rest and the other thing is is people don't realize what my background where it came from. That I was dirt or and my father was an -- it died in the back of a police car you know that was picked up for the city park. And when I was twenty years old and you know just not at every given CA and -- you. To have as much you know look -- successes I've had I just want people to know that I earned it and that. That it wasn't given to me and that you can -- to and I thought it was a real uplifting book and that's since Torre go they look at Sammy Hagar. Can go out and do all these things why can't shoot I didn't finish high school I'm not the smartest guy in the world obviously. I'm I'm not what might get the best looking guy. At and that it I'm not the most talented but I'm willing to work hard. And that's all it really takes him a little bit look and you can have anything you want and I think that's the -- In my book is that that's that's the thing that make me number one best seller and I think people got something from a and and that's that it is just garbage and people a lot of Rucker wrote books is sex drugs and rock and -- there's ways that can read there's plenty of that. There you don't need it before that but there's also some good uplifting stuff that makes you hold yourself in and -- hey -- Sammy can do it I -- and that's true. And you released at a time when. You know Van Halen was just kind of kind of gone away for awhile in whatever and now it's all backs fronts and there and every time you even mentioned the band name. It's gonna have. And up everywhere in the tabloids and everybody target what's am talking about David got a gun -- it's. And now you guys are all out on tour at the same time kind of. It picked up and put soaked it so it says sure what was the whole damn thing. But you know the all the smack that was -- about any in the book really was I wasn't targeted by I just was telling everybody is things have happened. Within that band and if you read the first part of it you know the first nine years -- -- it over the greatest musical. Times in my life you know and they just that it went sour went bad -- bad relationship like a marriage is so -- -- going to. In historical and in divorce court and then it erases what she what she said he did you know so it got and all that but honestly. I was only god -- them. Do reaching on the last couple years ago a year ago because they have done anything for a hundred years ago that these guys don't take care of their fans. They're just it's so wrong thing need to go out and do some -- for the -- banjo out of its. Now with me here now with the whatever just go out any going to studio mixing music with these people go on these shows. Do something for your fans they've been. Very loyal and now that they're doing that -- that won't stop them again I'm I'm so happy they're not doing that you know for the fans not from me. There. But. Those bands you know I was in that -- -- -- as part of my legacy. And you know I don't want to kill the impetus that lays the golden egg with -- Part of your musical legacy obviously goes back to Montrose sides. To ask you about the passing of Ronnie Montrose and and how that's affected -- is that just happened pretty recently. I tell you that when I got a call from I came home from some I was out doing something I got home about. 11 o'clock at night and it was a call they come in a couple of hours there from IndyCar -- And that he's shook up bad because you know Sammy -- army out to what time is calming. I think I don't know my -- -- all -- -- to his wife for whether this kitchen. And I just felt that. On the phone when I calling back and he said he couldn't hardly see any result choked up they said -- instead I. I -- it floored me I was so shocked it was the last thing I expected. Because. I just talked to -- like -- be running I don't talk that much you know we've talked twice a year -- the last ten years that's a lot. And but I called him because from my birthday bash is hearing combo. I said look we're all getting old this is I mean just like a week before this were all getting old Ronnie. I wondered -- talk to you first report called -- and bill were all still alive and we can all still to it. What -- prep -- are you guys to Kabul you bring your family which -- You know up for a week on the beach and have the best I haven't but just played one show at the Kabul level for the fans -- one of the my birthday -- On my birthday really wanted to do it on the thirteenth. But October. And he said he thinks about it -- you you know I like about you you're always trying to you know. Come up with some cockamamie idea to get itself back together. Gas is try to do it you know. And so he -- sure I'll do it we remove that and have a great I called any the next day -- built church. They -- all -- it was set I did everything in the book flights I was even thinking about flying every bite out of my -- just -- all of -- to get together. And be together and and you know on the way there and just really live it -- you know. And that was honest it got my plan and it was set it was etched in stone and and the guy checks out it was so weird. And then I get it's I got I go back to the microphone. And there's two days later he calls routed calmly left the messages said you know paid our -- So it -- it was like emergency call but you know but Sony we just ironic that we just connected again and we we don't do very well. Have run and I didn't go along so I've been good at that. -- to say the least yeah. Yeah otherwise Montrose you know so but because very few bands from net Eric -- were were from the early seventies. Are still all the members alive and and able. And still playing music and still able to go out and and do a good reunion you know it's always couple guys that message you know. And so I really -- hope we gonna do that one last time -- can get them. Now you have one of those lives where you know you're talking about your playing and like all of the stuff. But when a guy you know that you known as long as as Ronnie Montrose is gone and does it give you. Pause and make you look at your life and -- are right there's still some things I haven't done that I really need to push towards the top. Of of my -- You know list of things that I wanna do and I do now -- -- -- imagine with your crazy life things that you haven't done yet that you want to. Well I'm ready and have things honest about I itself but he would say that it didn't have anything to do authorities step. But I was facing. After -- -- -- tequila company. And honestly -- that was like the big thing for me that you know that -- unheard of saying for a guy just. You know as a singer of rock band to do something that was you know to build that particular country's number two premium tequila in the in the world and turbulence over gazillion dollars of that. I'm real proud that. And it's not because of -- how much money it was it was because. Well I didn't think it could actually -- things like that it's so that kind of put the -- set me back -- well. What's next and then when I wrote the book. And it went to number one. You know I mean I got grammys -- and hall of fame American music awards you know and -- -- got all those kind of things of a gazillion gold and platinum records. Beautiful family all -- and let. But and I am not racquet at December but those things altogether and -- in the book what number one outlet that's I don't know wipers and cars that. That's it I really don't have anymore ambition shall achieve a full went gold. You know I'm going wow could afford generations of rock have been you know around as long. Platinum comes in and can -- different things so. Montrose and Palin not -- -- -- but that's and I really don't have anything -- to do it and it started going this route. An uncle and and kind of excited about this they must admit you know and you know everybody's got to give -- deal. -- dirty look like use said that you know -- daddy -- says you know I know -- that we're moving to Hawaii -- That it's it's it's really I always look for things to keep me going. And -- see in the fine. Pretty CME's you know I like help -- people could not have a good number of breaks your heart. Okay I love -- some people. That's my news saying I'd like to find somebody that needs help and up and be able to help them not just give somebody some money. And say OK -- you can eat today you know that's a good thing -- in the wrong. But I mean truly out some way to get them on her feet up get a job to rip who you know hook them up these other people and of course started a business like the tequila or like the you know the the restaurants -- the -- -- can hire people. And I'd go inside the -- Internet and I'd say -- -- Oprah does its thing we need. People don't want. Fans that know how to do this job to -- -- the job -- his job but that makes it feel that some kind of like doing this big network thing. Trying to employ the -- -- but it's for the. Listen -- your house and -- people don't know album which is trying to ruin my life. On the good old. That it's done is let's -- that was nearby red -- as well as they would would be. Bamboozled and that they would have been pulled women Woodward in the pool you know drugs in my closet they would. -- -- and so -- so as well. I nearly no worse than any politician in Washington you're just -- -- -- At times wears those guys liked it again and it got nailed those century back -- it didn't do -- thing they do wonder about. But let's -- you equity that is very it would have to set the and nick this guy's done it and I bet he's still doing it in. What do out. You seem like Canon guy that would love skydiving I'm an avid sky I know her know. Just settled place you want your unsecured heights I get an airplane and -- called a close the window. And I got myself would be -- -- case. Ever wanna get over your fear of heights yet jump out of an -- job and I don't hear you I guarantee it. Yep probably period no immunity and she it would openers that that -- that's. -- -- like that. That's why can't you the end of back and -- you know it. Who -- that this -- We theory yeah much. -- -- would do it -- -- -- maybe buy equipment went on into that at my age you know so. Woods got out of the eighty year old lady. God bless him. See she needs an excitement this in my opinion yeah. That their whole life which is little housewife doing dishes Albanian. On the because historic chemical -- house and -- she -- she turned Asian male probably -- jump out of an airplane you know. Don't tell me she tell -- issue is wanted to do it. And her husband -- told her that she could it and they died and it's the first thing she -- -- kept it. Did you see somebody had some water. And popped at least my whole life I that it jumped an airplane that was born -- spent -- -- -- I've been under -- let me rephrase as what they forget among not a doctor. -- someone -- probably have an airplane. -- Hey before you -- I wanna find out. What's going on because Chad's out with that other little band there red hot chili some NN. One on with the drummer for chickens like you obviously need one so I don't know. We've we've got to -- -- we've had incidents is that we every show we've done you know went to Europe with a we've only been doing these kind of TV shows and and doing like what we -- protesters were despite cities Americans in in small clubs and five. Shows in Europe -- -- different countries but just to promote the album that but no yeah I got yet. But it looks like Chad's going to be out for awhile so that's what we put this tournament and we're using -- he's fantastic. He we started in Kabul with him just like we start in Kabul with -- where it's kind of for giving you know you can you can blow it. And it's part of the deal people opinion on court for her from -- enough mistakes show. And so and it really we're great -- you know embrace it think it is I mean it here are some great great oh yeah yeah insult. -- is. He's not in the band but he's still in the chosen this and Chad. It is worth thinking about next summer doing. -- which had big cities next looks like next April. And officially you know and and Chad we've already talked to leave maybe go up next summer and the American tour and a at a European toward. Still keep promoting itself does carry this -- should -- but we need is. Most ridiculous album title on the planet by the way. It's the most ridiculous music on the play. On the -- of this album I told Joseph whatever the last thing I wanted to is that that the suitcase you know for the first six or eight months of my life. But we have to go -- promote this record for the -- so. So we're doing this you know. Theaters you know kind of medium sized venues not -- it's a bigger read. Yet you're going to be at the orpheum in Boston it's a great place to see. And yet we vessel went to a plea places that sounded and really. -- off the musical talent in the -- and you know we stretch you know we we we take it to three minutes ought to make it seven minutes on so. You know we we really. Like to -- people to be it was here every note you know -- places damn fast. If you play you know in every day here at five minutes later as well as part of -- that's so it's from behind me you know. So we we really want to get. Our chops really together and and find out who we are. With. You know with a different government Kenny and and maybe next several bullet through -- -- -- bigger venues but right now we we really like this -- rooms that sort of play in Europe and it really it was good you know we. We were thinking about Hillary is going to be packaged together and and after we went to hear from played -- bouncy as it was like. It's so rewarding to have the place packed and happy here everything your play in and the audience here at and it just feels. More into that I like it. We'll tickets are on sale now for the show -- -- your radar may sixteenth they are and all the details are at the WA AF dot com so. We'll see you in in a couple of months.
