Drfunkenberry & Tony Kanal.

After Van Halen rocked the Forum, I ran into Tony Kanal of No Doubt. We talked briefly and the guy was friendly to all.

My friend spoke to him first and said that we cannot wait for the album.  Tony replied, "We are working hard on it and can't wait for it to be out as well."

After I took a photo with him, I let him know about drfunkenberry.com and he knew of the site.   Tony said: "I love the site. I go there all the time."

I said the site would be even better if we get something exclusive for when the new No Doubt CD comes out.  I thanked him for his time and cursed myself a million times for being without a business card.

I mean we could all use just a snippet or something new from No Doubt right?  There is that send us news button above.....just in case someone wants to.  Ahem.

Tony was totally cool and hope you guys enjoy the photo.-DocFB

Van Halen did a 15 song set at the Los Angeles Forum last night. It was the final dress rehearsal and featured thousands of their friends and family.

It was supposed to be a "secret show" but was one of the worst kept secrets as we and others leaked the info shortly before noon yesterday.  Kool & The Gang opened the show as they will for the tour and they brought the good time funk.  It seems like a weird combo for a tour but it works.
