This week, I've had the good pleasure of having John Jones as my house guest. John lives in LA but is in town this week for the US Open, which is being held this year at Torrey Pines in La Jolla. We've know each other for years and have worked on several music projects together, so it's always a treat for us both when we get to spend some time together. John is a very colorful guy...a Grammy-winning producer (Celine Dion, Duran Duran, Fleetwood Mac, Alan Frew, etc.), the biggest history buff I know, and loves golf (not just playing it, but its history, courses and traditions).
Here are some photos from this week...
Last night John and I met up with several ex-Linspire employees for a fun get together at Stone Brewery in Escondido. (Thanks for putting this together T!) John took the photo. (Apparently, Linspire only has about eight employees left. My concern remains that Michael Robertson and Larry Kettler are destroying what's left of the company. They have yet to report anything to me or the other 100 shareholders.)
Here are some more photos that Cliff took. The next get-together of ex-Linspirites is a family pool party at my house next month. For those of you who missed the get together last night, hopefully we'll see you then. (Email Theresa if you're not already on her mailing list.)
Wednesday evening, John and I had dinner with Alex Jackson, a photographer and sports history buff from the UK who has covered the last 15 US Opens and has the monumental task of having to photograph every single player (150+) during the four days of the open. A really nice gent.
John prefers to be behind the camera, but we did catch him here...
I put together this quick montage of photos John took on Wednesday (the only day cameras are allowed without a press pass). Click on image to view.
