I remember that around the late 80s I became obsessed with rock. My hero was Angus Young.

Andy Timmons.

I ve seen Andy Timmons live 4 times. I have also seen the concert with Steve Vai at the Hoshino party (on video). I think AT is the PERFECT compliment for the G3. He´s a great showman, he is an incredible improviser and more important. He´s got tunes!!! A big plus is that he tours as a trio so I´d n...
