Congratulations to Ashley Valentine and Nataly Patino for hosting a most awesome event, “Rock ‘n’ Paws” Saturday, June 14, at 10th Street Live in Kenilworth, New Jersey.

I’m honored that Ashley invited me to read from my book “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist” which features stories about the late Wendy O. Williams of The Plasmatics who was a vegetarian and Joan Jett, an animal rights activist.

I’ve been a vegetarian since 1986 and shopping cruelty free since 1996.

It was an amazing event with a lot of great music! My favorite original band of the evening was New Politicians, who resembled Interpol.

I sold copies of “On the Guest List” after my reading and donated portions of proceeds to ASPCA.
