So I was invited by Slipknot to come to the Download festival in Derby England to set up backstage and massage them and they even let me bring two Dot Bots with me, Tyler and Lucy. We arrived one night early and stayed at a hotel near by. Lucy had her niece with her the first night, Mya and it was fun being Aunt Dotty all night, bringing her out to eat and spoiling her. She is a tough little girl, reminds me of myself when I was her age in many ways, not just the way she looks.
Michelle, or “Tyler” as she likes to call herself and Matt, a VIP tour manager we know and love.
Slipknot LOVES the Dr. Dot massage team, they get massages from us at pretty much every stop of their tours, we love them too. WILD music I tell ya!
Even Catering was rockin’ out ^ All the bands that played the 3 day festival signed this poster – who the fuck knows who ended up getting it. Lucky bastard.
Jon Wysocki, STAIND drummer, massage client and friend ^
Taken when we first got there ^ We were the guest of Staind the first night and Slipknot the 2nd night and by the 3rd night we were too freakin’ exhausted to care and just beat feet outta there as I had an early flight the next day to Belfast.

Ooh sometimes I have good luck and I am at the right place at the right time and the Birmingham promoter called me and said Steely Dan was requesting me for massages. YAY!! I haven’t seen them in a couple years and it was GREAT to catch up with everyone, especially Donald Fagan, below.
The amazing Donald Fagen of Steely Dan gave me the honor of letting me massage him again ^
Simon Cowell got a 2 hour massage in Birmingham, England ^ Words fail me about this man, he is so fucking funny, generous and just plain nice.
He was shocked at my tattoo and called me “Mad” as he always does hahaha.
