    Damn, RIP to a truly talented guy who made the most of what he was given. He could truly rip it up, my favorite was "Confidence Man" and "See the Light".

    Great guy, what a shame. Feel bad for the kids...

    I've done monitors for him at least a half dozen times with the blues band and the jazz band.

    I will post up some pictures here later...
