I first met Danny Trejo when I was at the video shoot for the song, Attitude.  He was a recent acquaintance of my son, Dana, and Max and I thought it would be cool to include him in a video for this song.  Max had worked on the lyrics with Dana, and when Dana came up with the idea to use the Gracies and the director...whose name I choose not to made sense to include Danny.

As soon as Danny arrived, he approached me and remarked on my green hair.  He was such a gentleman!  We chatted for a bit and then he went to his filming.  You can check out the video here, below, in the blog.

The next time I talked to Danny, my heart was broken.  My soul was wounded.  He called me after Dana died.  I admit, I was surprised that he took time out of his busy schedule to call me.  He said he really liked Dana a lot and expressed his sadness and shock.  Besides being an ultimate badass, he was a human.

When we were at the Archangel recording, Danny happened to be at the North Hollywood restaurant, Norm's, when we popped in to grab some grub.  He still had that fearless aura, still had the gentleman edge.  It's a nice mix...

Class dismissed....
