He's been playing with Kenny Wayne Sheppard for the last year. Before that he was working for Fender.

I allways thought live in peace, by The FIRM would have made a great tribute song to and for 9/11.. The first few lines in beginning say it all to the tee... (God bless them all) They were excellent live when I seen them many years ago... Jimmy Page of course pulled out the VIOLIN BOW..... and did some wickey riffs!!!!!!

Still frettless. KWS is on the current Experience Hendrix tour and they were on Leno a couple weeks ago. Plenty of current stuff on YouTube as well.

He's featured on just about every Derek Sherinian solo album. Quite a few of those out there already!
