Private Jam Session


Recently I had the chance to help fulfill a young man's dream when I met and jammed with Brian Mammen - an 18-year old cancer patient in San Dimas, CA.

Having children of my own, it really makes me realize how blessed I've been in my life when I hear about someone so young with such a terrible affliction. When Helping Heroes asked me to help fulfill one of Brian's dreams to meet and jam with a member of Van Halen, I was more than happy to make it happen!

We hung out, jammed and had a great time together. I would like to wish Brian and his family all the best. Brian is one brave and courageous person - you rock, Brian!

More pictures from the day will be posted at Mad Anthony Cafe.

Very cool, you guys granting the wishes of these awesome kids, sharing the weight of their troubles, if only for the moment, giving them wonderful memories to help them through pain of their struggles.
