How I got into the band Chicago

Chicago - 18 - Back

It almost seems like yesterday… I guess that’s what happens when an event is so profound it can almost seem suspended in time. I’ve been reflecting a lot lately on this incredible event in my life, that has consequently created many more incredible events… I’ve been archiving a LOT over the last several years and…

Shotgun Tom Kelly

I’ve been taking an extremely long walk down memory lane lately… some people always say they don’t look back… they don’t get nostalgic… makes them melancholy. That’s not the type of looking back I’m talking about… the more I study personal development the more I keep hearing how important it is to pause……….. and reflect.…

Make My Day

Lemons-Lemonade

So I woke up this morning to get ready to go home after a very long year of touring. Let me tell you a few things I did to prepare… one, I had the flight booked for around noon and that would still give me just about 6 hours total of sleep.  We played a…

Winding Down 2014 Tour

Summer-ending

Hello friends… I’m writing this as I look toward the last official show of the 2014 Chicago touring season. Panama City, FL and I can finally start feeling Fall… I love this time of the year… you can feel the change in the air.  Humans don’t take to change that easily but think about it……

Rockstars Road To Fitness

RR2F FB Banner v2

You know… I stumbled back into fitness back in 2008… I’ve written so much on it in the past I won’t go over the details in this post… I’ll make my other writings about it, the journey, photos, videos, etc. in a separate category… but for now… just want to share what’s happening with me…

Hello Yellow Brick Road

Classic Albums Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 520x289

My mother had an 8 track deck, (no, not 8 discreet channels we all ended up using in the 80’s to record new songs… the old school ones that had ONE cartridge… click here for a link to see what they looked like…), and it was probably around 1972 when I heard Elton John for…

Ok, I’ve said it a million times before… I never planned… and I can’t say I wasn’t a believer… I really didn’t think that much about it… but if asked, I’d probably have told you my opinion… all of that hocus pocus stuff of *thinking* about what you want… and it’ll happen… (Law of attraction,…

Joe Sample

Joe Sample

I’m writing this on September 13, 2014. After I got done with my concert last night I got on the bus and Wally Reyes said, “Joe Sample died”.  I saw in Wally’s face how deeply hurt he was.  He worked a lot with Joe.  So did Lou… so our bus had a very somber tone…

All I Ever Wanted To Be…

10000 hours

All I ever wanted to be was a bass player.  My father is a bass player… one of the best that ever lived.  He was Elvis Presley’s bass player from 1969 until Elvis died.  He also was the bass player on “The Doors” L.A. Woman Album. Yup, “Riders On The Storm”, “Don’t You Love Her…

Pacino joins Chicago!!!

Al Pacino

Jason Scheff Resume:  Worked with Al Pacino I’ve always gotten a kick out of people who have resumes that include ridiculously bloated credits!  How can they possibly have worked with these folks? Well, I just happened to fall into a moment last Friday night that gave me one of those credits… I guess, it is…
