Interesting account of the near reunion of the Eat ‘Em and Smile band at the Ultimate Jam Night in Hollywood. Had it happened, it would have been one for the ages.
In case you’re not familiar, this is the band David Lee Roth assembled after leaving Van Halen, and it includes Steve Vai (guitar legend, Frank Zappa band), Billy Sheehan (bass legend, Talas, Mr. Big, Winery Dogs), Gregg Bissonette (Ringo Starr, ELO), and Brett Tuggle (Rick Springfield, Fleetwood Mac, and many others).
The show ultimately didn’t happen, but it was *this close*, and you read in the article…
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
