Last week, I had the honor of meeting up with Michael Des Barres, during a sound check for Rockers In Recovery’s Hurricane Sandy Benefit at The Cutting Room in New York City. After spending many hours of transcribing, ("Carnaby Street" playing in the background) and reliving that day looking through roughly 300 photographs, I was left with a feeling of enlightenment and the yearning to want to know more about his luminous life.
As an actor, Michael has portrayed a master assassin who refused to die, a hoodlum crooner in a rock band, known as “Scum of the Earth”, a gay man and a baby doctor. Just to name a few of the multifarious roles he morphed himself into. Although acting may have been his first “love”, rock and roll was embedded in his heart.
