Love tells ABC Radio that he’ll be spending the holiday with loved ones at his home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

“There’s a beautiful view from my house of 26 miles of water,” says the Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer. “We usually are there for Thanksgiving and Christmas, ’cause it’s totally family. You know, a lot of people come in for it. Sometimes we have a crowd of maybe 60 people at Christmas, but Thanksgiving will be a little more low-key.”

Mike tells ABC Radio that music has always been a big part of his family’s holiday gatherings, and this year’s Thanksgiving should be no exception.

“We have the grand piano and the harp in the living room, and we play Christmastime music and all that, which is how we started,” Love explains. “We started with family gatherings due to the fact that my mom was incredibly into music of all kinds.”

He adds, “So yeah, it’ll be all about family, and I wish everybody a Happy Thanksgiving.”
