"Random Thoughts" by Mark McGrath

One of my biggest regrets about being in Sugar Ray is that we never got a chance to play South America. Well that is all about to change because we are going to Brazil, Argentina and Chile in late October of this year!

OK, saw Friday night I was court side at the LA Clippers game and I found out firsthand the power and quickness with what it means to go "viral". Chris Paul (one of my favorite players in the NBA, how do you not respect his skills?) made a last second drive over 4 Trailblazers to win the game. The Staples center naturally erupted in euphoria, and Chris came over to my group and fist pumped my two friends and basically left me hanging. I'm not one to bother or hassle people, but I'm not one to be rude either, and it looked like the natural flow of this interaction was coming my way. Unfortunately, it wasn't, and it was caught in all it's glory by the ESPN cameras.

As I sit here and write this I am so excited about the tour Art (from Everclear) and I have put together this summer called Summerland. We both have been thinking about this tour for sometime in parallel universes, and when Art made the move to LA last fall he called me and we both decided that summer 2012 was the perfect time to release this love letter to the great music of the 90's. The vision behind Summerland is to celebrate the iconic songs of the era and the multi-platinum bands that brought these songs to the airwaves of America. Basically a hits driven tour de force that tugs at the nostalgia and memories of the time embraced by the summer wind and illuminated by the warmth of the stars in each city we play.

"Mark, you're fired",  and yes with that simple, but effective iconic phrase, I was canned off of the Celebrity Apprentice!  Did I deserve to go, or was I victim of America's love affair of the "force of nature" that is  Gary Busey?  Who knows?  All I know is I had an incredible time on an amazing show, and met some truly stellar people that I'll be friends with the rest of my life.  My only regret is that I didn't get to win a boatload of money for a very deserving charity, Vh1's Save The Music Foundation. So do me a favor if you would be so kind, checkout their website savethemusic.com, and see if there's anyway you can help...

It's 6:30 in the morning and I'm in the lounge of British Airways in Manchester, England filled with a sense of calm and happiness. Happy because I'm on way back to The States for a gig with the Gin Blossoms, which means I'm closer to home after being away for close to two weeks...
