"Good Times" - It Flies Pt. 1

August 25, 2013

Aug 25 - MTV VMA's Daft Punk's "Lose Yourself To Dance" shows us all together again decked out in Saint Laurent

After being diagnosed with "extremely aggressive prostate cancer" a couple years ago, I ramped up my life into overdrive. I've done more recordings and concerts than in any two-year period of my life - because no matter how bad things get, making music always makes me feel better.

I've had a high work output all my life. But just to give a little perspective to the previous statement, I'm posting one photo for everyday of the last three months of the summer touring season in reverse order.

Because when you're having fun and "Good Times" - It Flies.
