Paul Booth, reinventing his Tattoo Studio into something even FIERCER

I was at Paul Booth's NYC Studio last night and major construction is going on. Holy FUCK is that man busy. He is so unique, words fail me. LOVE him! He is the one who did my kick ass Hendrix tattoo. Some say he is the most famous tattoo artist in the world (waiting list is 20 years long lol). I pop in sometimes to see him and his incredibly sweet (and hot) girlfriend. Great people!

 

 

 

Jimi Hendrix’s 67th Birthday bash in NYC ( BB King club)

 

So here are some pictures I took at the show…..

 

 Lance Lopez , headlining!

 

Me, Lance and Katelin before the show. I introduced Katelin to Lance online and suggested he let her play a tune during her trip to NYC and he did and everyone loved their jam. 

 

Lance's last minute set list^   (which he forgot in dressing room 馃檪


Lance, who normally plays guitar, told me he learned drums first when he was little. He took to the drums to let little Tallan Noble Latz (age 9) play guitar and Katelin Deutsch (age 10) play bass, during a fucking ridiculously amazing rendition of VooDoo Chile. OMFG, they received a standing ovation. Respect!!

 

Lance Lopez in action (sorry, this one was taken with my crackberry ^)

 Lance plays so similar to Jimi, if you close your eyes and just listen, you swear you're listening to the real thing. 

I have heard many people try to play Jimi, but Lance, in my opinion, nails it the best. Hands down. He is on fire!!

 

Katelin in the groove! Tal Wilkenfeld better watch her back. Katelin is amazing and is NOT a snotty bitch like Tal. (this is not an opinion, it is pretty much a known fact, Tal is arrogant as fuuuuuuuuuuuck). tsk tsk, be nice to the folks on the way up as you will probably meet them again on your way down. 

 

This one too ^  (Popa Chubby warming up backstage)

 

Lance's view of PACKED BB King club (full of lovely Hendrix fans, aaaaaahhhhhhhh)

The drummer (sorry, name slips my mind, but he was killer)

 

Pictures the German road manager + friend Wolf Haas

 just sent me (he manages Lance)

The official Heavy Metal Book of Lists book release party

Eric Danville is a friend and my editor/boss at Penthouse Forum magazine (that host my sex column "Calling Dr. Dot").
Eric wrote this book here The Official Heavy Metal book of Lists, which I contributed to. The book release party was October 1st 2009.
It was a blast.. the book is SUPER fun, grab a copy. My pages are 106-109.

Since Eric is also my Penthouse editor I decided to come dressed in my Dr. Dot costume..

 

 I brought my very close friend, Chrissi with me. She is always a million laughs (AND she loves karaoke too, just like me)

Got Milk?

From Left to Right: Cliff Mott (illustrator of the Heavy Metal Book of Lists), me and Eric Danville (author/editor/friend)

The book release party was held at the Double Down Saloon and it was naturally a freak show, as it always is in the Lower East Side, yes!  馃檪

 

Not sure what Ass Juice is but I am sure it taste YUMMY

 

 

Finally got to meet my Editor assistant of Penthouse Forum, Jenn – after soooo long working together per email. 

 

 

 

I was lucky enough to have an illustration to go with my Heavy Metal List- Cliff Mott did the honors… I like!! You can find my pages on 106, 107, 108 and 109.

 

 

 Congrats Eric, the book ROCKS!!! Thanks for giving me a copy, Chrissi and I dug into it over waffles at the diner and laughed our heads off- good stuff!!
