My friend Ernie issued the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to me yesterday, challenge accepted! I completed the challenge and made a donation and I encourage all my fans to do the same, but I am going to specifically challenge Ed Martin, Joanna Athwal, and Nef Jones! - http://youtu.be/eU-nt0iioBA
A Flashback Friday 2-for1! Check out this interview and acoustic performance I did with Billboard back in 2008! - http://youtu.be/iuMHNPEH0w4
This week for my venue rundown I am heading west for Red Rocks in Colorado. This place is by far one of the most beautiful venues you’ll ever see a show at. The natural rock setting makes for about as unique and picturesque a setting for a show as you can get! - http://www.queenv.com/web/?p=2047
Here's a nice Flashback Friday shot of the fellas and I from our show at Sullivan Hall last year. Another awesome NYC venue that is sadly no longer around. Thanks to Wayne Herrschaft's Headlamp Digital Photography for the photo. - http://www.queenv.com/web/?p=2043
Back to NYC for my favorite venues rundown, this time with Irving Plaza! A decent sized room that still manages to feel intimate. Been to more shows here than I can count. - http://youtu.be/yPVG9jSISCE
Visit CMZ Photography at the link below for some great photos from last year's show at The Bowery Electric opening for Dizzy Reed of Guns N Roses. This show was such a blast, see the photos and a great review of it here http://bit.ly/qvhnbcmz ! #FlashbackFriday
Next up on my run down of my favorite venues is Stubbs in Austin, TX! One show I will never forget here is Dave Grohl's Sound City Players show that featured Stevie Nicks, Corey Taylor and of course The Foo Fighters! - http://www.queenv.com/web/?p=2031
I just added a massive gallery of photos to my website for your Flashback Friday enjoyment! The collection features every photo that was in the "Cry For A Minute" Lyric video!

Over the next few weeks I am going to be sharing some of my favorite venues across the country with you. Starting right here in New York City at the mecca, Madison Square Garden! I've seen so many amazing shows here; The Police, Peter Gabriel, Slipknot, Paul McCartney, Kings Of Leon and most recently Billy Joel, just to name a few!
We lost another guitar legend yesterday, with the passing of Johnny Winter. Sad to see so many greats leaving us this year. Rock in peace Johnny! - http://youtu.be/iM7Z5aKBjWM
