So I was at the LA Auto Show, and was invited by the fine people at Bugatti to be part of a select group of people to test drive the incredible Veyron. The guy on the left is a real race car driver, unlike yours truly. They paid him to take me on the first half of the drive, then I got to drive for the second half of the ride.   This is where we pulled over and I took the wheel.

I have gotten to meet some pretty famous guitar players, but The Doors have been my number one since I was ten years old, in 1968. I made a Frankenstein stereo out of my mom’s console by hooking up some external speakers.
