Experience Hendrix tour with Steve Vai

 

My friend Steve Vai ^ before the gig. He is really one of my favorite people on earth. SO FUN to talk to Steve and his playing makes for good eargasms.  

 

Steve took a picture of my Hendrix tattoo with his iPhone and thought we should pose with it in the picture. He cracks me up! 

 

Here is the whole tattoo (took this one right after I had it done) 

 

Steve played/sang "Waterfall" which was for me was the highlight of the whole show. OMFG. AMAZING. 

 

 Check this tour out, it is AMAZING:

Steven Tyler is NOT quitting Aerosmith

Steven Tyler is NOT quitting Aerosmith. He surprised Joe Perry on stage tonight in NYC + hushed the crowd, then told them "I'm here to support my brother Joe here+ to tell you all I'm not quitting Aerosmith, we are NOT breaking up!"

This video is 
from TONIGHT in NYC….You can clearly see Steven Tyler is still 
getting along FINE with Joe Perry (Aerosmith is NOT breaking up)

Steve Miller Band

My massage team has been massaging SMB for almost 3 years and this is the first time I got to meet and massage him. He was SO nice and when he walked into the massage room he was so full of praise, saying so many kind things, like "you got a great team, you run a tight ship, all of your girls have been terrific, I feel so much better on tour with them massaging me, etc.

He told me SO many amazing stories during his two hour massage- told me about hanging out with Hendrix and headlining for the Grateful Dead (the dead opened, then SMB played then Jimi- wow!) he also played a show once in Minnesota where Alice Cooper opened for them and said it was one of Alice's first show and how the crowd didn't know how to react with Alice. He just ate dinner the other night with Alice and told me just for fun they traded watches (they both collect them). He is just a nice guy, wow. 

 

The show was, to my surprise, 90% BLUES!! He played Come On (which in my opinion was made famous by Jimi Hendrix) and many other great blues tunes- naturally he played his hits but you can tell he would just enjoy playing blues all night 🙂

SOME of Steve's guitars on the side of the stage. There were so many I couldn't fit them all into one picture. He is the only guitarist in the band fyi

BACK in the sadle again.. he’s baaaaaaack

 from like 1997 ^ taken in Berlin

It has been a long time since I have massaged Steven (Aerosmith ) Tyler, so it was GREAT seeing him again and massage him again. He is by far one of my favorites to work on. He is so positive and fun, I am pretty sure anyone who knows him, loves him. His girlfriend Erin got a massage the next day too. They were both VERY pleased with their massages, so I have been told over and over again by his assistant. 

Steven insisted on tying this scarf on me himself for the picture. He said "I know how to do scarves"  haha. He is so fun! He lives ROCK and ROLL. Some stars dress and act one way on stage and act differently off the stage. With Steven, it's like this, he is exactly like he appears to be, a free spirit with a wild way about him, it's not an act, he is that way. So fucking cool!

 

Steve said he got those necklaces and beads in Maui. The Turquoise beads, he said, are over 3,000 years old. The tight teeth necklace is made from Raccoon teeth

 

 

Steve says this ring has been around the world twice in a shuttle (his friend is an astronaut and brings his ring with him)


 
 

Mr. Tyler and his little torch

He uses this to ignite special coals he got in Dubai. The coals

go under incense he got there, and they smell delicious. 

 

 

My friend Bri, who does security for Steven, also protected Evil Knievel for more than 15 years. SUPER nice, but fierce man. 

Massage in Los Angeles California ( a little Rock and Roll Royalty here)

If  you want to book me, email me at: info@drdot.com and put "Julian/LA" in the subject line. 


 My Name is Julian Vai, and I live in Los Angeles, California where I enjoy practicing massage therapy. I discovered that I have a unique talent for being intuitively aware of the needs of a tattered body, and applying the right touch for its rejuvenation. I attended Kripalu in Massachusetts as well as the National Holistic Institute in California, where I attained over 1300 hours of massage therapy training.

I am now attending Santa Barbra City College and plan to become a chiropractor. I always had a passion for the healing arts and am now ready to explore deeper therapy for the whole being.
   
When not massaging my guilty pleasure is being a computer nerd who browsing the internet for hours, listening to music and seeking interesting people. I also love traveling and have recently logged 13,000 miles over a 4 month trek throughout the USA and Canada.

My dad  is a musician (Steve Vai) so I am  accustomed to chilling out back stage and know when to get out of the way. I understand people are busy and need the maximum benefit from their massage and that’s what I love doing.

I specialize in deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and happiness. I am thrilled to be working for Dr.Dot because she rocks hard. I auditioned with Dot personally in NJ and after two hours of my massage, she didn't want me to stop. She said it was one of the best massages she has ever had. 

She sent me on my first gig already and I massaged the singer of Judas Priest. He LOVED my hands so I am confident you too will enjoy my massage. 

A different Georiga on my mind part 1 (part 2 found here: http://drdot.blog-city.com/greetings_from_georgia_former_soviet_union.htm )

Berlin is treating me WELL these days. Saturday night I massaged Ronald Steven Lauder the youngest son of Estee Lauder.For some reason I thought the family was French and was surprise to find out he is from Brooklyn. Ha! Super funny guy who LIVES for massage. He is currently building a massage room in his house. He told me my massage was the best one he has ever had, so maybe I will be massaging he and his wife in that massage room when I get my arse back to NYC. 

TONIGHT was even better. I massaged the best looking President on earth, Mikheil Saakashvili . < click to read more about him)..He is the President of Georgia and super fun to talk to. He originally wanted only a 30 minute massage but 90 minutes later, he told me my massage is "the best massage I have had in my life so far". Mikheil had body gaurds outside the massage room the whole time, who were all over 6 feet tall and like 4 feet wide. One spoke English really well and told me his favorite group is Metallica. Ha. He said "I am a rocker!" so we got along fine, whilst waiting for the President to finish his work out. I was excited to finally get to massage a President. I have massaged the Prince of Saudi Arabia before and a few Mayors, but this was the first President for me. 

During the massage 'Mr. President' was very witty. I was massaging his massive neck and told him "wow! Your neck is so tense!" and he answered "no kidding, I have RUSSIA sitting on it!". We both laughed so hard. I was feeling comfortable and asked him if he had ever been to Georgia, as in, Atlanta Georgia and he laughed and said of course. Then I took it even further and asked him if he's ever heard "Georgia on my mind" from Ray Charles. I was laughing while I asked him and said "these are just stupid questions reporters aren't allowed to ask you" ha!!  I told him my family lives in Georgia (they are from New England but migrated South to Atlanta, k?). He said I should come to visit the COUNTRY Georgia, and I said I was too scare, I mean, I can't even point it out on the fucking map. He assured me if I came, his security would look after me. SOOOO I may be going to Georgia this summer. He swears they LOVE Americans there. I told him that is probably the ONLY place on earth that "loves Americans".He said he studied at Columbia University in NYC and lived in Washington DC, which he said are his favorite two places in the US. 

 Even his body gaurd's faces lit up when I told them I am American. The Pres and I were cracking jokes about how serious Germans are. LMFAO!! He said "We Georgians are the complete opposites of Germans" ha!! Now I can't wait to go and discover this mysterious country that has only 5 million people in it, yet has their own Playboy magazine (you know, Playboy UK, Playboy Germany, Playboy GEORGIA!". He told me that. We talked about that because I had just told him I write for Penthouse Forum and gave him a copy (the copy which has yours truly on the cover). He asked me a lot of questions to, about where I learned massage, about my family and life. I try to avoid talking during a massage but if someone is chatty, we chat. Sometimes we were silent, as when I massage, it's hard work and it's hard to talk and massage deep tissue at the same time, I start breathing hard and I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea. heh heh.

After the massage, he was in a super good mood and even posed with me. I didn't even BOTHER bringing my good Sony camera as I thought, nah, he would never pose with a rock and roll massage therapist. BUT he did, so my blackberry camera had to do:

NOTE: PART 2 OF THIS CAN BE FOUND HERE: http://drdot.blog-city.com/greetings_from_georgia_former_soviet_union.htm

I told him I massage a lot of rock stars and he asked which ones, I told him a few names, Kiss, Sting, The Stones… and he said "I feel honored now!" ha ha! He is so fucking cool! Genuinely friendly, not diplomatically friendly, know what I mean? He had his body gaurds send down to bottles of Georgian wine "Mukuzani, Special Reserve, aged in French barrels for 20 months" and 100 euro tip. What a man!!!!!!!!  He now has a new fan.

Oh, by the way, when I arrived to massage the President at his hotel, there was a BIG FUCKING FUSS;  LOADS of security outside and no one was allowed in a that moment because Ms. Rice (Condoleezza Rice, National Security Advisor) was about to enter the same hotel. I told the cops, "the freaking president of Georgia is waiting for a massage, let me in!" ha ha. They didn't believe me at first, but after a walkie talkie check, I was escorted in. This hotel is happenin' at the moment. Not allowed to say which hotel right now…. I am behaving.
