My Kind of Day

January 22, 2012


Yesterday started with the first significant snowfall of the season. Here's my front yard

Yesterday started with the first significant snowfall of the season here. I took the Range Rover and headed for New York City, where I'd had a full day planned.

I sometimes auction off my rare guitars to benefit my charity, the We Are Family Foundation. Today I let a one-of-a-kind mega superstar signed guitar go.

This guitar was my backup guitar that I used to play the Save The Rainforest Concert 2010. It's signed by Sting, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Mary J. Blige, Debbie Harry and many others. After a quick photo session with the guitar's winners, I went to see the musical, "The Book Of Mormon."

I got tapped on my shoulder and to my surprise, it was my dear friend and original CHIC Organization road manager, Stuart Griffen. He was there with actor Taylor Negron.

Then I went to see my dear friend Rosie Perez, David Hyde Pierce and cast, in a terrific play called "Close Up Space." It was My Kind of Day.

I did a quick photo session with my guitar and got one last play before I let it go


This number from The Book Of Mormon really had me laughing out loud

Playing guitar in my living room is my idea of My Kind of Day
