Out on the Road Spain with Davey Wavey

Duane Wells and Davey Wavey on a road trip across Spain together for 10 days?  That just sounds crazy right? And yet it happened.

The Audacity of East London

I have been trekking to London ever since I was a wide-eyed 18-year-old college student who had seen little of the world beyond America’s borders during what might have been called my “formative years.” In fact, though London was the second European capital city I visited on my very first overseas tour, it was the...
A Very Mancunian Life

A Very Mancunian Life

First off, for the uninitiated, a couple of definitions: Mancunian: A person from Manchester. Mancunian Life: Fierce, fun, vibrant, independent, sometimes raucous, always original, forever unbuttoned and decidedly passionate about music.

VIP Lounge: Johnny Weir

VIP Lounge: Johnny Weir

When I met Johnny Weir at a photo shoot in Hollywood, he wasn’t at all what I expected—a revelation that the well traveled, two-time Olympian has become all too accustomed to hearing.
