|Apr 8th, 2018 : It's
not easy to run sunfired lately. Jim is probably holed up in his studio,
producing various people. Plus an occasional corporate gig
with Gwen where he is blended in the background. I guess Gwen is
too much of a celebrity to interact with the band (Avril Lavigne anyone???). Anyway, I live in hope for some new Jim music. In the interim - lots of stuff in our archive to enjoy. Say, this photo of The Best Damn Band in Tokyo in 2011 (thanks Ira Kravitz!) or Jimmy covering U2's "With or Without You" just because he feels like it. |
|Mar 26th, 2018: Video: Jim recently in a studio, producing Laura Michelle. |
Movie of the week: Jimmy and "Girls"
|Mar 12th: Gallery: A couple of new photos: Jim in the studio (thanks Laura Michelle!) and Jim w/ Steve Fekete and Al Berry
and some friends. It was Steve's birthday party; actually a jam at
the Paseo Club in Valencia, CA. Sorry about the quality of the photo.
Must have been taken with a Nokia phone from the last millennium, but
it's too precious to pass. Everyone seems so happy! |
Movie of the week: Jim with Avril and Steve performing Smile at
Walmart Soundcheck in 2011. Jim had an incredible on stage rapport with
Ms. Avril. Miss those days... By the way, muting "bitch"...
Seriously??? I'd upload the filthy original but YouTube won't let me
(copyrights and such)
|Mar 3rd, 2018: Picture of the Week: Jimmy w/ Shakira, Glastonbury Festival, June 26 2010. Video: Two clips from the performance w/ Gwen Stefani at the Post Super Bowl Party in Minneapolis.|
|Picture of the Week: Jimmy and Paul Stanley, Live To Win tour - Atlanta, Oct 21, 2006. Paul
Stanley hired the entire House Band from the Rockstar Supernova
TV reality show as his backup band. Atlanta was the first of 14 concerts
in North America. Jim was on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. Paul and
the House Band toured Australia in April the following year.
Unfortunately, Jimmy couldn't make it Down Under and was replaced with
Brett Garsed. Talk about a bummer for yours truly :c(|
2018: Movie of the Week: Closing Ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver
, Feb 28, 2010. Jimmy was there w/ Avril Lavigne, singing "My Happy
Ending" and "Girlfriend". Probably one of the highlights of his career
as professional musician. |
2018: Gallery: It appears Jimmy was in Minneapolis on Super Bowl night, performing with Gwen Stefani at the post game party at Mystic Lake Center. Some screen shots from that occasion here. |
Picture of the Week: Jimmy and Avril discussing something obviously very important at the band dinner in Sao Paulo (July 2011). From memory, it took them forever to arrive from Buenos Aires - there was some volcanic ash disrupting air traffic.
there is nothing to post apart from some grainy Instagram videos of
Gwen shows with Jim blending with the background - it's time to
go down the memory lane. Rock never gets old, so hopefully you'll
enjoy it. There will be a Movie of the Week and Photo of the Week and I will try to post as regularly as I can. |
So, without further ado:
Movie of the Week: Runaway w/Avril Lavigne - CBS Special, Feb 2007 Calgary. Missing Jim's dreamy voice...
- Jim's beloved Philly Eagles won the Superbowl and World
(ahem...) Championship. Jim is over the moon, obviously. Check out his Twitter, Instagram and Facebook page. For the people adverse to Social Media - check our News page. I seriously think that even a Grammy will not top this for Jimmy. Okay. Maybe it will - but very close.

Gwen Stefani's Christmas Special was a bit of a letdown as far as Jim
