#Repost @joebonamassa ・・・ Let's help my friend and yours Steve Vai get his guitar back. Stolen in Los Angeles at the Wiltern Theater.. Should not be hard to identify.

Paul won't let me show you the front yet, but this is the best new guitar I've ever played. #prsguitars #prs #waitforit



Why am I not on Tumblr anymore? Just looked around, and I gotta tell ya… it holds up! Miss this place.


Dreary day in Nashville, but we're gonna make the sun come out at night at the @deadandcompany show tonight at Bridgestone Arena. Come join us!

This could be us but you're not a fluffy little eight week old puppy.

"Who the f**k is John Mayer?"

respect them and show care, but do not pity them. Say "thank you for your service" but do not discuss politics. Employers, hire them. Support veterans initiatives, and understand that their experiences are those of incredibly strong willed and intelligent people, and that many of the challenges they face are unavoidable. One thing that isn't unavoidable, however, is that we can continue to foster a culture of acknowledgement, of continued care and unbiased respect and support of their reintegration into civilian life, and a sense of duty to their well being as they have made it their duty to protect ours. Thank you to all veterans and their families for your service to this country.

First, my apologies for taking so long to post. It's been a beautiful, intense and all-encompassing ride since the beginning of the @deadandcompany tour, and I didn't have the words to really express what this has meant to me. I still don't, but I'm coming to grips with the idea that I have to try! Nothing I can say can add more depth to this than already exists. So here's the "gist of it": thank you for accepting me. Thank you for letting me help take you to *that place*... I think this sums everything up: every time someone comes up to me and mentions having seen one (or more) of these shows, the question in my mind is never "how was I?" but "how were you?" Because I'm only here, with my five brothers-in-arms, to take you '"there." Thank you Bob, Billy, and Mickey. Thank you Jeff and Oteil. And thank you kind friends everywhere. Now, on with the shows...

Sound check is over and the doors are about to open...You can watch the concert live stream at 7:30PM EST on #amexunstaged #deadandcompany

The first three @deadandcompany set lists are sketched out, and I think you're going to like them. See you soon...#deadandco (photo by Danny Clinch @dannybones64)

Commemorating #backtothefuture day with a more subtle reference to the film... The original Marty McFly Nike Bruin. Reveling in the simple '80s glory. Now where should I go turn my guitar up and play tonight?

Slimer. Pretty great.

I can't think of anyone I'd rather share a birthday with than Bob Weir. And how about the @earthroamer cake? I lived in mine for the entire month of rehearsals. If you're gonna join up for a few miles of the long, strange trip, it should involve some camping. 38 and feelin' grate....

Doesn't get any more "live pic" than this. The new @tudorwatch Heritage Black Bay with black bezel and classic "Big Crown" touches. Stay tuned for my Week on the Wrist column at #tudor #watch @hodinkee

Hand washing. The new meditation. And a way to keep it real. Real delicate. #seaislandcotton #thelaundress

This is a Hollywood Bowl Instagram. You know the one. Half Instagram half "I'm at the Hollywood Bowl." Watching Van Halen. Flew in from rehearsals in SF just to see it. If you've never heard Eddie play in person, it's one of those last remaining sonic wonders of the world. Clapton. Stevie Wonder. Neil Young. Eddie. Get it in your ears. Your eardrums collect little badges. Stuff you've heard. Collect this badge.

Great surprise meeting @sammyhagar today. The OG @danbilzerian?? Or so I imagine...

Current mood

Home sweet home. #earthroamer

I love songs. Great songs. I'll take a great song over a cool solo, a killer groove, etc... Check this great SONG out! Highly crafted. Sit with it. Put the phone down. Let her tell you the story. It's worth the wait. The title. The narrative. The perspective. Lyrics x melody x performance = B O O M.
