Skum ran into their old friend Jenny McCarthy last Friday night at the EPIC Hotel in Downtown Miami. Jenny was promoting her new book ‘Lust, Love and Faking It‘. The guys hung out with Jenny as she mingled with fans after her book signing, Afterward, everyone headed down to the bar and over a few drinks, Jenny started a discussion over the last line of ‘Hanging out with Fred,” saying she always thought is was “Jerry Lee is Fred.”
When explained to her that the correct line was indeed ‘JD’, she relied, ‘who the hell is JD?’
Jenny, a long time fan of Skum and even a bigger fan of Herb George was giving John and Hart a hard time about kicking Herb out of the band reminding them “Herb had Style”.
Regardless of the Herbless line up of Skum Jenny and all of her Playmate friends are stoked about the reunion, “We can’t wait”.
On Saturday night Skum lead singer Hart Baur and lead guitarist John Eaton joined forces with the Miami Heat‘s Udonis Haslem in his annual Demin and Diamonds charity fund raiser. This year’s event was a Vegas style casino theme and it didn’t take Eaton long to jump into the fray.
“I love poker and this was for a good cause,” said Eaton. When asked how he did, Eaton replied, “it’s the kids who won tonight.”
“I just want to give back to my community,” said Haslem. ‘This is my town and I’m proud to say that.”
Haslem then cleaned up at the poker table leading Eaton to comment with a laugh “‘there must have been some home cooking with the dealers!”
The room was filled with celebrities such as Dwyane Wade, Mike Miller and several other Miami Heat players. A crowd of over 500 turned out and for the event, and fun was had by all.
“I didn’t see Clooney and I heard he was showing up,” said Baur. “He owes me a beer from the Super Bowl. I figured he pay up tonight. if anyone sees George on South Beach tell him he owes me!”
