What’s up gang,
So I finished the Australian tour on a screaming high note; A hot & sweaty, “Alive and Kickin” show in Sydney. Thanks to my new best friends all over OZ; you boys and girls know how to show this Californian a good time. So after that wild adventure and another 19 hour airplane flight, I went home to the Bay Area for 3 days to kiss the wife and kids. Now I’m in Argentina opening for my old compadre, Richie Kotzen. I just finished my set, I thought the boys (The Road Vultures; Christian, Charlie and Pablo) and I did a damn good job tonight…(hell the audience in Mar del Plata loved it so we must have rocked da house)!
RK and his band (Johnny Griparic (Bass) and Dan Potruch (Drums)) killed tonight. Man I forgot how great that kid is! This tour is going to be cool.
All right Gang it took about 5 hours to drive here on a tour bus (that were sharing with 15 other people…the opening act “Madison” , a couple crew dudes, promoters and what looks like a booster club..Lol) and we’ve got a 5 hour trek back to Buenos Aires. It’s about 2:30 in the morning and I figure we get back at….shit I don’t want to think about it.
(Meanwhile 6 F-ing hours later)
Ugh…..what a trip. That was a bus ride from hell….more like the Antarctica. That broke down, stripped gear smelling, Ice box of a bus barely made it back to the hotel. In a few hours RK and I have an in-store to attend and than it’s off to the next show. We are filming live tonight for a DVD so you kids better be on your best behavior…or not.
E
PS. I’ll get back to everyone soon.

Eric I have just seen you in santiago chile on teleton teather, you were so close but at the same time so far away
I really love your show but I'm a little dissapointment cause the public here was very boring, they should have stand up and shout, I was the one who was all the time at front of the centre of the escenary singing with you, I have to say It was really shocking to me seen you so close cause I really love your voice your spirit as a musician and of course your external beauty...
in one song I think you Know it very well it says like this: "I believe there I'll be forever young" , and I have to say to you: that's true, you will be forever young and in my heart you'll allways be.
I wish someday you read this I believe it's a beat hard, but anyway if you ever have "windows live messenger" you should added me so we could talk , well there's my e - mail: coshia_coshia@hotmail.com

I wish you the best!!!
lots of love for you my sweet sweet Eric!!

What a voice! What a concert in Sao Paulo!

You're one of the most talented people I have ever known.

My 6 year old niece is also your fan. She sings "I love the way you love me" all the time.

I'm sure all your fans in Brazil are eager to see you around soon.

Be good!

Hey Eric! Long time without posting... You may be very busy! =)
It's the first time that I visit your blog, and... I felt that I had to say that I laugh a lot when I read "my old compadre, Richie Kotzen"! Hahahahaha!!!! I thought that just here in Brazil we use to say "compadre"! Hahahahaha!!! That was new for me!
Well, hope you're having good trips, and hope I can see you here in Brazil soon! =)
