Dave had been on tour with the band since September, filling in for his old pal Tom Hamilton, who's recovering from treatments for throat cancer.
When the tour ended, the other guys in Aerosmith headed off to elite rock star holiday vacation spots. But Dave, the local rock star of our youth went back to work in the clubs he's been rocking for decades, playing a December 29th gig at Chan’s Chinese Restaurant in Woonsocket, Rhode Island with local blues mainstays, The James Montgomery Band.
Now we've found a review of the show-- and an interview with Dave from the scene.
Chinese restaurant venue?
We love playing Chan's. It's so different from any of the other places we play...it reminds me of a 1930's club or a speakeasy. There's always a great crowd and a great vibe at Chan's.
Is it hard to go back to small clubs after playing big arenas with AEROSMITH?
Not at all. I'm playing with amazing musicians in intimate settings. I love this gig.
Favorite AERO songs you like to play?
Toys, Back In the Saddle, and Draw The Line.
