Meetings are up. Headin’ for New Jersey and Springsteen’s hometown-show. Sean Penn in the hotel lobby. We all love him.

Brooze in New Jersey last nite was a mesmerizing experience. I like Radio Nowhere for some reason. The crowd was the best I’ve seen.

I like Brooze when he’s showing off his pop side. Cover me, Hungry heart, Wauting on a sunny day, I don’t like Rosalita & Jungleland. Sorry.

Someone next door is playing Dr Hook’s version of “Only sixteen”. What a great idea!!!

Xllent choice of music, Gabriel! Kim Fowley’s behind B. Bumble & Co! Kool kat indeed!
