Thanks for your suggestion. Sorry, I didnt mean to give you the impression that I was "idle" waiting for the hopefully upcoming Def Leppard dates.I would love to tour with Warrant(my first real tour with D2 was with them in 1988!)or Quiet Riot , or anyone else. The problem is that I have no tour support from any label,and touring is the most expensive and usually money losing venture that you can undertake,unless you are selling in the millions which i am not. Some expenses include paying my bandmates salaries(they have to get paid even if i dont) to go on the road,hotel rooms,transportation,equipment and a whole lot more.I tour in Europe ,where i am better promoted and I can attract enough fans to make it worth doing. I just returned from a great U.K tour which would have lost money except that we sold a ton of cd's which paid for the trip(thanks everyone who bought!!!).
Another SLIGHT problem would be that those bands dont know that i exist.(but Def does)
I will probably end up playing some warm up slots for bands of that caliber when they come to my area,so i can get exposure for Melodica,thats up to local promoters,but for now, I have a show on August 32st at FLAGSTAFF in Jim Thorpe Pa.
I will be doing some live shows throughout the year promoting my new cd LOVEMETAL which i hope you will buy,then maybe the situation will change for me here in the U.S..
thanks for the question.
please buy my new cd LOVEMETAL.
