Well it's been a while since I have posted. Sorry I haven't been keeping up. I've been really busy trying to keep up with basketball games with my son, twirling with my daughter and working on pre-production for Meat . I am also working on a project for Crook's guitar album. You'll have to check his site to see when he will release it. In between all this I have been recording with Scarecrow which is a Rock Opera, hopefully to tour the UK next year. I am now getting ready to head out to Las Vegas to rehearse with Marya Roxx for a German Tour with Lafee's Ring Of Fire Tour. I'm sorry to say but Joey Vera won't be with us this leg, but longtime friend Danny Miranda (Queen, We Will Rock You, Blue Oyster Cult) will be filling in. It looks like a lot of bratwursts in May. Before heading out with Marya I will be working on Meat's new album which Rob Cavallo (producer of Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Dave Matthews Band, Fleetwood Mac, David Cook, Goo Goo Dolls, Kid Rock, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette and Shinedown) will be producing. Also keep your eyes open for the release of Amberly Thiessen's (Canadian Idol) album.

This month's Charity Auction just went up on eBay . Up for auction is a signed 10-inch Zildjian splash cymbal and a pair of autographed drumsticks. Please check it out; this all goes for a great cause, Compassion International. My wife has been corresponding with the children we have been able to sponsor thanks to you guys, and will be posting a few letters that we have received back from them. I really want to thank my wife Eve, and Deb for putting in all the hard work to make this auction possible. You know drummers - I would just mess the whole thing up doing it myself.

Wow, lots of information lol

First and foremost, i am glad to hear you have had some time with your kids :0) they're more important than anything :-D

That is awesome news with Marya doing such a big tour!! Joey will be missed i'm sure but it will rock still i have no doubt!! I'm looking forward to seeing Marya live myself, the EP and vid's etc have only served to 'wet' my apetite lol

Looking forward to seeing the outcome of Meat and Rob Carvallo working together, i love soo much of Carvello's work!!

Hope Amberley's album does well and will keep fingers crossed we in the uk are able to obtain a copy.

Looking forward to hearing how the sponsored children are getting on and on that subject, good luck with the new auction, it looks great :0)

Rock on as always and take care :0)
