You Thrill me - Honest You DOO DOO ......fest !

So i was at "the Fly" this morning drinking coffee playing wit nehi the pitbull watching the river boats and tugs push each other around when i had a flash back of my musical trip to San Diego/ Pacific Beach/LaJolla . It must be the picture perfect morning with that fantastic sun and slow breeze blowing on my face. Sometimes i get flash backs of the old times living on the road. I remember being behind the wheel in my brown toyota supra with my acoustic toking that so cal herb watching my buddy flip around on his surf board. I cant remember to much about the hr-hr accounts but i remember meeting a couple of folks out there who help inspire my music. It was sweet relaxing afternoon when we ran into a old lady who told us about a coffe house called the inner eye. She told us to come by and have d=some drinks and listen to the bands. She also sold us some really good herb . I mean some really mean green shit. It was the kind of herb that hangs in the air and never leaves the room for days. I remeber cruzing around the street looking for the bar. the homes around the place were incredible. the views up there was intense. My long hair blow wildly in the winds of calipornation back than. I was still a little off with my money situation but i made the best wit what i had. the mornings were filled with Irish creme coffee and finding a parking spot as i went to a music conference that talked about record labels, finding a lawyer, promoting yer products. its wasnt all that great in my mind. I meet a few cool people and had a great time a host of them. its funny how you think of stuff. I didnt really do much while i was there with music. but i played a minute or two here and there. i played on the beach a bunch. I remember smoking and drinking with some local fucks. the surf shop was funny as i was rolling up a fat joint this surfer dude walks up to the car and just couldn't believe i was rolling a doobie in the parking lot. we smoked him out. the hotel was a real dive but it was a typical beach side hotel with palm tress and lots of sand. We partied like champs with a couple of sweet cally girls that nite but no babies were created wahahaha i think :-) wahahaha The thing i remember was how it was the first time outside of memphis that i had a vision of how my music business should be. Very independent with lots of open boundies and never give up attitude 24-7-365. I was 25-26 and i had a lot of songs on tape and i was rolling a pro setup but my business was a mess. so the ride to and back was a time to think and reflect on my music catalog. I was able to sit with some older folks on the beach who helped me see what roads i might end up on. Dead and gone was 1 road. I didnt know what to really expect from the music conference so i just went there and gave it an open ear. I am glad it me some real insight as to who i was and who i wanted to become in life. No one hit wonders and no big world tour with famous musicians would be the end of my career. The music i made was kinda underground i thought. I dont think i really like anything i record- it could always be better and better and better in my mind. I took some bands musical roads over the yrs. it funny to see how long it is from there to here. I'm going into my 4th yr on Nola. It a creative place to be. the recording here have a lot of fun to them. this weekend in Halloween and of course were all playing DOO DOO FEST ( NOT VOODOO FEST ) ITS all fun and games till someone is pushed into a metal hanger at the saturn bar and they claim i was drunka nd deserved it so they wont pay up on my medical bills - fuck those people i will see them in court real soon ! the court system and the music industy goes hand and hand. I cant wait to sing the blues to the judge. thats the music business. sumtines playing the game is just pure insanity but it has to happen. I will make it into a song. It will be a hit. u will like it. I will play it. It what i need to do on this planet. MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM


Once again i've been seduced and influenced by the charms of her Evil spirit. Waiting in the shadows LUVIS THE GUITARIST with my mighty amp and trusty pick Blasting and Thrashing all the solos that haven't been seen or heard from since days of folk lore and bon scott fire's wahahahahahahahaha WHATA FUCKEN GREAT past bunch of shows this month - almost in sane to think that i meet over 20 different bands from all over the country playing there songs of freedom. Fukking crazy to see the viscous style some of these crazy mothers play. I have been inspired by the spirits once again while toking at the river front to the Man. AR-15 has another killer show at DO=DO FEST oct 30 generator show - so its nice to be ale to get a chance to practice up on the new songs and work out the lyric's . the equipment need some tweeking before its all hauled off to another show. I've been busting strings lately and its mainly because of these " credit card picks " made with those thick edges for free with my scissors. Ya i am my own worst enemy. I have to say thanks to my Buddy Tom from MY-RAGE who sent me a care package a few yrs ago with some string inside. I used them to keep the show going but i still snapped them up ! thanks bro it was a MYRAGE week. Played 2 weekends in a row / working full time jobs is some real stress for a 3 piece band to deal with. New Orleans is a wild ride so you better lay your money down ! Cant always win big at Harrahs as i learned the other nite - but its all part of the show. the show never ends. Dream big or go 6 ft under ground. The ranking on old reverb nation are excellent. Number 6 for Luvis Number 7 for AR-15 Thats really a great deal of fun to say. i love thinking about who i am hanging with. we are always looking for new bands to jam with. I love jamming & partying with new musicains. Got to laugh it up with a few jersey/ philly guys and that was a blast to make fun of the garden state. We all miss those taylor ham and egg deli delights but that a givin. fucking hell yeah ! I have to think about next months shows and it a killer bunch of shows. the parades are in 1 week and so everybody will be out with the kids trick or treating it up. Halloween is always a funny day. I will work it and laugh at all the costumes sometimes its a gruesome display that makes fun. Last yr a groucho marx guy came out of know where and stole my kids balloon than came around the block to give it back ??? fukken weird. its all weird but its never boring. i'm tired of boring shit. like seeing a five piece band singing about never being kiss by that special girl. wtf is wrong with these kids today. so scared to do anything unless they have a gun . ya you got to keep them separated ! my kid keep talking to me about christmas and she's so great cause i'm always trying to make her laugh unless she's not doing her homework than i'm a total jerkdad but she's a good kid and so maybe for christmas i will give her my metal version of holiday classic's wahahahah its time to think about holiday sales kids. she's a little kid now and someday she will be a little kid who owes the music of her dad LUVIS ! Thats gonna be a lot of songs and videos passwords to remember. I hope she doesnt get my paypal account hacked and lose the millions and trillions of digital currencies in there. Ya i cant stay on this planet forever making songs. I have bigger plans with other life forms. Theres places in the galaxy thats never heard this strange music invented on planet earth using magnetic copper coil and lightning !!!! PEACE AND LOVE FROM THE SUN ABOVE CAUSE MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM L.U.V.I.S.

It all good my Brotha's and Sista's :-)

I'm ur Fretboard Freak-n-Stine with the shine !

Ya i play guitar ,Trained by the best and partied with the worst of them Learned alot from those who wouldnt waste there time to jam but thought they could best me on the street talking shit with daddy's money .As humble as I was as a young man I have tossed that bullshit to the side lines cause atthe end of the day all i think of is how your lame ass lost te title in front of all of us musicians . Ya My memory is a little cloudy but i remeber those who thought i was o.k. for smashing your car up but not for studio time. It all good the door slams both ways now doesnt it. I seem to be more fit and less violent with the wahaha pedal than before - now i just laugh and get a bottle of whiskey and some spray paint . I'm a great guitar player but i'm a better singer. I wrote Dead Hooker in Trunk in the Homeplace studio while the snow was falling . Poor girl should have stayed away from those crooked politicians. R.I.P ~ ROXX-ANNE The fall is here and so is my new band AR-15 , working on new songs telling stories to help you live and survive the comming revolution designed by the inventors of NWO destruction. iTs time like this where i hear the words of General Patton. It times like these tat Dave Grohl doesnt make any sense to me. he's cool at times i guess. 25 yrs of this game has made me a little untrusting of the industy titans who are able to put 3 choard together with a drum beat and some clever words and there you have it Billboard # 1 album. I was young man and i coulnt resist Got me a girl and i kissed her a little bit. Ya i'm in constant heaven with my click. Its all part of history. the untold story never to made into a movie. Its good to be a little unknown It helps with getting the truth. I have folks who can honestly look at me and say that song sucks dont play it that way . Thank god the band members who i jam with have my back on stage or in the court room . I used to really day dream on scales and theory looking for the rigt notes to play. it a code. It all an enigma. the Luvis Labyrinth is far reaching like a black hole . the charge has been ordered by High Command. We are all loading up on gear for the war againest the red barons . I take a deep breathe when Jimmy Page plays those few short notes to " Going to California " and rip a huge fart to the pop slop justin bieber fools . Sorry kid ! Money isnt going to save you when i'm knocking on your front door with my Marshall Stack. Funny thing about me and my friends is that we will hunt yer big fat ass around town. We will take notes on your tour. we have and always will never forget those who lost there lives on the musical battlefield for the dead are among us and the living are just pawns in the real recruitment called the after life. o.K. ITS TIME to get your fretboard weapon and aim it your sight at the ISIS fukwads for music means freedom and if you like to gamble U WIN SOME LOSE SOME IT ALL A GAME TO ME !!! :-) L.U.V.I.S.P.R.O.

so long summer of 2015 You Rocked !

its been a great summer of 2015 for all of us musicians out there in these local little cities rural towns. I am grateful for all the music i got to see and hear this past yr. bands from all over the world come to nola and i am here to help. A Rite we are trying to get more songs to the band AR-15 so that we have a longer set list. I am being placed into the fall season where a lot of my songs are written. I remember as a kid going to NYC with my girlfriend playing guitar in washington sq park smoking herb drinking wine coolers singing and laughing people watching and thinking about the future of my music. It been 25 yrs behind me now. I have a massive amount of songs and bands past present and future. I keep my finger on the trigger and have been lucky to keep in hot pursuit of playing music. The future of music is always cool but the past is even cooler. I have been pushed latly to record some music that i never thought about. Plus i have been seeking to publish some music theory concepts. the Studio stuff is fun and i always need to get back into the console and make some great demo's. I am keeping my eye open for more possiblities that are always right around the corner. Its like when we would just sit and hang out in front of the store krawzers . people pulling up from all over the place. asking us for either directions or smoke. hopping into free city rides and getting around the rest ofthe night using subways and bmx bikes. getting busted jumping the hand rails at $80 a piece - thank ful we didnt have any felonies or warrants. It was and still is always on my mind - its moment like those that help me sing and write about stuff. Like Natashia from Russia - It was just the 3 of us and her. its was just a strip club on a frieday night. I was higher than a cooter bird. Drinking beers looking at titties, laughing all the way to jersey. now its a song. have fun and than write songs about it - its really that e-z cause MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM !

L.U.V.I.S. (Type in blood )


AHHH June is so sweet and hot with tons of music and BBQ's. Beers Bongs and Thongs Baby. Thats all i need. Like spring break in Florida or cross country to California. its the Memories of Grateful Dead concerts at the Meadow lands in New Jersey. The back yard badmitten games listening to " Black n Black & U shook me all nite long ". the best thing about JUNE is its when i would get hours of time to practice my Randy Rhoads solos while listening to Van Halens Hot for teacher with a confounded perplexed look on my face & Fretboard. Summer time love with Janis and Jim in Wsahington Sq park looking for Reggie. smooth ass nites of what if or what ever happens for me in June. The world cahnges in the June month. Its was a day like today - hot and blues skyed waiting for the Allman bros to play while stripping negitives for the Print Shop - Morris County Duplicating :-( miss that place - DOMINGO & Bruce - scotty - Art ! Fucking Art ! I know these guys are still jamming - ya paper jams hahahahaha. June is where the eyes are on the prowl and love is in the air. A soft Blue eyes and ivory coast skin makes my blood rush and my heart melt. I see that fireball over at the ALley Kat in a mini shirt and i'm gunna hit that later attitude. Drinking games and intense bon fires. The FINEST HERBS come thru the air in june. Excitement at every turn i would say. I see i am top 10 and AR-15 is top 20 - How cool ! Thansk for that folks - we all must share the creme of the crop this summer. I have been in the top ten for the past yr of the Luvis 25 YRS CD - STill aval on CDBABY.COM/USER/LUVIS I am so proud of that album. recorded in the heart of new orleans at ST ANN Studios - wow ! when yer able to flip your age/birthdate and think where you where at that time, well u will be thinking like i am today. i am 45 - where will i be at 54 - maybe i will be able to get back to L.A and go back to school at Musicians Institute - Maybe my daughter will go to M.I. and i will teach there, thats a cool goal. I had this teacher there name Chas. his teaching were so vital to my playing and even more so now. He talk with such passion for music and how he lived he's life by it - but life changes and o did he and what you get isnt what u might have wanted so go with what you have and ride that logical thought with a big smile thru the sharp and flats. dont be so deadpan bro ham :-) eat drink be mary, smoke with merry and kiss mary, cause there's some about Mary. As a kid June would usher in new musicians and new lessons. Summer rock concerts are my fave - just lik ethe 2 big show for me this month ! I am so bless to be playing guitar in the AR-15 band. Luvis is happy musician. It all because of June . Have a great Summer ya'll cause it start today - dont get busted, stay clean, keep yer nose clean- dont go off the tracks and becareful under the bridge downtown - this is a locals only area - BEWARE...... LOCKED AND LOADED 247-365/420 ROCK IT TO YER SOUL MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM :-) L.U.V.I.S. :-)
