With Summer here, I'm reminded of how music has always been a big part of my life...The Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, name it... 

Music is the soundtrack for our memories and remains an American tradition today and always.

Here is my ex-husband Gene Dorney singing with his band, The Rounders in 1999, at a little bar in South Orange County called Mugs Away.  The Rounders were there from the beginning of our marriage in 1973 and played together for over 35 years.

Gene's best friend since childhood, Rick Corradini and Gene, kicking it at Muggs Away in 1999.

My last dance with The Rounders at Mugs Away, 1999.


Seven year's later, 2006, Gene and the Rounder's were still together and Rocking at Mugs Away.

Gene has been an Orange County Attorney for over 40 years and still plays in The Gene Dorney Band, in Newport Beach today.

Some of my most fun memories were dancing to The Rounders, in the 1970's, 80's, 90's.

Gene in the green t-shirt with The Rounders, before they split up last year and he formed The Gene Dorney Band.

Living in Southern California all my life has been an Endless Summer with music, cars, the beach and trying to stay forever young.  I hope you are enjoying The Maybelline Docu-Blog.... tell your friends to check in and of course be sure to buy my book.....The Maybelline Story and the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind will love seeing the world through my Maybelline eyes.
