Topic: My Year in review...2008
I've just walked in the door in Malibu California,(many thanks to Kevin Shirley and family for letting me stay in their very wonderful beach house) officially moved back after the horrible experience in Georgia. I have been doing a lot of thinking about the whirlwind that was 2008. I m typing on my new computer, (thank you very much Bob and everybody at APPLE ) So were do I start.. Well professionally it was the absolutely the best year of my life. We had the best crowds, played the best venues of my career.. I cant believe all the things I have worked for the last 20 years are coming true.. Its like a surreal dream. I only have all of you to thank. I am were I am because all the fans that have gone beyond human expectations to support me and my band. I have recieved hundreds of congrats about selling out Royal Albert Hall in 6 days.. I dont deserve them.. You do.. !!!! So again thanks from not only myself, but from Carmine, Rick Bogie, and everybody behind the scenes that make this show run on a daily basis.. Warren, Dave, Aaron Colin, Alex, Rachael , Nick, Derek, Simon, accountant Rick, Harry,Andrew, Neil and especially Roy. all in all some 20 people who work very diligently on behalf everyday. So my thanks goes out to them especially.. Personally you all know by now.. not a great year for JB.. Got a great album from it and I move on.. She is not worth discussing. I lost 60 pounds total.. and to clear up some rumors its not because Im taking drugs...!!!! It was lifestyle change that has seen me enjoy the sight and smell of food rather than the taste of it.. I got fat on some success and it showed.. Well as Rick would sat Bobs your uncle. Anyway thank you for another great year, thanks to Planet Rock and Sirius Radio for doing the radio shows.. I m having a blast even though we are not doing the Sirius show anymore.. I plan on doing a radio show in the US in 2009..
All the best for the new year..
