Pre-GRAMMY Gala / Clive Davis Party @ The Beverly Hilton, 2/11/12

The Clive Davis party is one of the most exclusive nights in music….so me being there feels weird all on its own. But nothing….NOTHING…will ever top this year. I was watching Exhumed at The Roxy when I received a text that Whitney Houston had died. Now, I think somewhere in the back of all of […]
