each month Kasim Sulton sends a message about what he has been doing and his future plans so here is his one for December 2013
And Then I....
Broke my leg.
Technically my leg but specifically my ankle.
Even more specifically my right Fibula.
The gory details are a hairline fracture spiraling from the front of the bone to the back. Like a candy cane if you will.
This all started with my back.
Now, I've never had back issues. I guess just the normal back aches associated with my age and my profession. Having a 6 - 7 pound guitar hanging on your shoulder hours on end, sitting on planes and bad hotel beds has had a cumulative effect on me.
When my back problem presented itself, the only relief I got was taking numerous hot baths. I was taking roughly five a night just so I could sleep for a few hours. During the course of a week, I was lucky to get 8 hours of real sleep.
I was so tired that after one of the baths, I slipped getting out of the tub and .... crack ... fell on my ankle and broke it.
I've been hobbling around for the past two weeks with a cast on.
The worst part was missing a private show in Las Vegas with Todd. The first missed show in 38 years. Hopefully the last.
This couldn't have happened at a worse time. The holidays.
I'm on the mend ... I've been to more Doctors in the past 3 weeks then I have in the past 10 years and I'm not happy about it.
I'll recover and treat this as a not so subtle indication that I need to be more conscious of taking care of myself.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas.

Singer/Songwriter Kasim Sulton To Debut Four New Songs Live at Rundgren Radio Party In Orlando
Kasim Sulton will debut four new songs live from his upcoming album at a party in Orlando hosted by Rundgren Radio on December 30th for fans going to the Todd Rundgren with special guest Pat Travers Band concert the following night on New Year's Eve.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sulton's new CD will be available in early 2014 and features some of his friends as guests on several of the songs including but not limited to Jason Scheff of the band Chicago and all of the members of the band Utopia - Todd Rundgren, Roger Powell, and Willie Wilcox. He's hosting CD release parties at Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, OH on March 9th and Space in Evanston, IL on March 12th.
Brooklyn-born singer/songwriter Kasim Sulton began his career playing piano for David Bowie's publicist Cherry Vanilla, before joining Todd Rundgren's prog-rock group Utopia in 1976. Kasim played bass and sang vocals in the band for 10 years. During that time, they released six studio albums and Kasim took on more of the lead vocals of the group as well. Kasim also wrote their only Top Forty hit, *Set Me Free.*
Kasim was a part of Meat Loaf*s band from 1993 to 2009 and in 1998 became his Musical Director. Kasim also has the distinction of being the only musician, apart from Meat Loaf, who performs on each track of all three Bat Out Of Hell albums. In recent years, Kasim has also been making his name as a producer, having produced the Meat Loaf album StoryTellers in 1999, and Rick Reynolds' album Unstoppable in 2005.
Kasim released his solo album, *Quid Pro Quo,* in 2002 to critical acclaim by both critics and fans alike, and in 2003, it won the Kweevak.com Viewers* Choice Award. Kasim*s double compilation CD called *All Sides* which includes new tracks, live tracks and personal favorites from his other solo albums was released in 2007. His first ever solo DVD was released in December of 2008.
Kasim has appeared on well over 100 recordings. A renowned session artist and musician, Kasim is recognized and respected throughout the music industry for his work with artists such as Todd Rundgren and Utopia, Meat Loaf, Celine Dion, Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Joan Jett, Hall and Oates, Patti Smith, Patty Smyth and Mick Jagger; and this is only a handful of the artists and performers he has worked with in his extraordinary multi-faceted musical career.

AWATS LIVE update... Todd just delivered the last bit of audio. Made a few last minute editorial tweaks. Last thing is the animated main titles, which I should be getting in the next day or so. If no comments from management, than render and deliver the 37 Gig Quicktime file to the DVD authoring company.

Excellent news for folks going to this gig! BB Kings can stay open until 1:45am that night! So, we don't have to go back to the hotel and have rent-a-cops yell at us until 1:46am . Post gig party in the venue! What other promoters make that happen ?
Saturday, October 19, 2013
My deepest apologies but I have bad news and good news! Bad news is we will be moving from the current hotel. That's the good news too lol. Downtown is not the place to be for BB Kings. We were 99% sure at one point the gig was going to be somewhere else and something was telling us it didn't feel right so we rolled the dice and called BB Kings despite the fact this is not the normal kind of gig they do on a regular basis. We are thrilled about our good luck and any inconvenience of moving closer will be well worth it.
So, don't panic you will get a room. Working on a place with a shipload of rooms. You can cancel your Crowne room now if you like or wait if you want. We probably won't be moving to the other Crowne since there are better options. Unfortunately, we probably can't post anything until Monday but be assured getting a room at the group hotel will NOT be a problem whatsoever.
Wait for it ... wait ....
IT'S ALL GOOD !
