Last year, Eric and I didn’t take a vacation because I was in the studio recording SWEAT. This year we originally planned to go to the Pacific Northwest for vacation but decided not to, so we decided to take a road trip. I know it may sound strange in today’s world of plane travel, but [...]
The incomparable JD Doyle conducted an extensive interview with me a few months back about SWEAT.

We share a love of Madonna – and I found him several years ago through some of his writings about her. At the time, I wrote to him and asked him if he would consider reviewing Stirred Not Shaken. He graciously [...]
Adam Lambert has gotten exactly what he wanted today – countless people all over the country have been talking about his AMA performance. I didn’t watch the AMA’s, but I watched three performances today on YouTube – his, Lady Gaga’s, and Kelly Clarkson’s. Much to my chagrin, I’m going to give Adam what he wants [...]

That interview, and all the songs from SWEAT, will be available at Rainbow World Radio on November 6th and will remain on line for about two weeks.
