So I'm not drinking for February. Since the start of February I've been offered alcohol 237 times, but who's counting? Not me, I made that up.

Signed 500 limited edition seven inchers this morning. I felt very like Muhammad Ali. He used to sign 1000 photos of himself every morning before breakfast and dispatch them forth quipping, "Yeah, I was pretty", safe in the knowledge that the bills were covered for the day.

In essence, we are an American rock band throwing our hats into the UK music scene. The experience up to now has been ecstatically exciting, but not void of some eye-opening lessons. The most painful? In order to taste a cocktail in a typical British bar you have to order a double.

I'm playing KOKO as one of the last dates of my tour... and needless to say my first big solo gig in my hometown is extremely nerve wracking. I need to pull out all the stops and deliver - and make everyone proud!

I urge anybody who reads this to exercise this same tactic in life; don't be afraid to be yourself, not everyone will like you; but a few will and they're really the only ones that will matter in the end.
