Day One

Today I flew to St. Louis to begin the tour. Checking in at LAX, directly in front of me in line was Malcolm McDowell. How cool is that? And he smiled at me. He's just as creepy in person...and I mean that in a good way.

Oh, I forgot to mention -- the other day on the Disney Lot, I had the best celebrity sighting. As I entered a building for vocal rehearsal, sitting on the ground talking with some people was none other than Felicity Huffman, the best actress working today. And she looked radiant.

After the flight, we checked in here at the Westin, and let me tell you, it is nice. Much nicer than what I'm used to. I have a suite-type thing and it's beautiful.

There's a rumor that we're now cutting "Clear" from the show. We've already cut everybody's favorite song from the show, and this is the band's second favorite song. They think the song might be too tonally mature for the show. I'm really bummed about this. We'll see if it's true tomorrow.

Digg this


  1. Cool, you're in StL now. Be careful, its one of the most dangerous towns in America with the methlabs and murder rates and beer consumption all sortsa fun stuff. But the Westin is nice, I remember my sister's wedding reception was there a few years ago.
    I hope the tour goes killer and you have a great time.

    much love my man!

  2. I think that's the first time I've heard the phrase "tonally mature". I think I'll add that to my repertoire.

  3. Hey Aaron, fortunately I haven't wandered into East St. Louis. I've had about 87 people warn me where not to go at this point, so that's helpful.

    Honestly, my experience of this city is that it's TOTALLY EMPTY. At least in the downtown areas. Where is everybody?
