Everyone has talked about Billy with Steve or Paul, but what about when Sheehan played with Mr. Greg Howe?

Oh yeah I have this album on vinyl and it's really cool. Although Greg's improved and progressed massively in the ensuing years and really developed a voice and a style all his own which owes as much to funk and jazz as it does to rock, on this album he mostly had it down and the interplay between Billy and Greg sounds almost psychic, this is a totally underated album.

That is an amazing album! Greg did improve by leaps and bounds over the years so I would love to see what them together now.

Greg has grew as a songwriter, and a more complete player. His phrasing and bebop style timing at hyper speeds is simply unreal. He is one of the most fluid tappers that a lot of times you don't even know he is tapping.

So many people won't give Greg the time of day. So, Thats the reason why I mentioned Billy. It's a very good album, exspecialy for a debute.

Along with some other great players like Brett Garsed, Scott Henderson, Guthrie Govan and Robben Ford.
