Grace Slick & Myself, At home, Malibu CA, 7.16.14 ~ There are moments that define you and moments when you define yourself. This was one of the latter. My job is always to gain trust, but this was special. Working for the past month to gain the trust of this lady was indeed special. She has turned down the Hall of Fame four times, but somehow, I gained her trust. In the process, I also gained a new experience. Conducting interview questions myself. Intimidating doesn’t even cover it. It gave me new regard for journalists. I tip my hat… I can’t even begin to cover all of the things I learned from this interview. She inspired me to dig deeper, find more honesty in myself, to forget the filter and say what you think and what you feel, to not take art so damn seriously. There is humor everywhere. Mostly, I learned to live life by your own terms. In the end, what other people remember about you is irrelevant. It’s what you own about yourself that matters. I love her! I will always love her and this day will forever be a personal and career highlight! Much thanks to Lauren Hanson for capturing this moment!
Bill Medley (The Righteous Brothers), At home, Newport Beach, CA, 7.14.14 ~ Gratitude, humility, the importance of communication, following your own truth and understanding your own special gifts & art and how to utilize them are all lessons I took from this interview. I also learned that he keeps his plate glass windows very clean! Ouch! But that is story for another time. What a man! What a life! What a day!
