Lightning 100 Radio Show

What a show last night!

Michael Rhodes understands where the bottom of my music lives. What a presence! Nothing feels quite like his support ... both musically and spiritually ... "Pro" doesn't begin to describe what he brings to the table. His commitment to excellence shows up in the choices he makes musically ... but that is only one piece of the beautiful puzzle ...

Shawn Fichter is simply awesome! With one rehearsal he kept me on track all night long! And that doesn't even start on what a sweet and kind spirit he is ... One of the finest people I know and the more I am around him the better it gets ...

Tim Akers is ... well ... sick! Sickeningly wickedly badass ... He makes B3 do what B3 was intended to do ... It's like he breathes the perfect part ... His playing is one thing ... his musicianship is what takes him over the top! He wore a cool hat too ...

Tom Bukovac and I have some indescribable music zone we live in together ... If I were a great guitarist, I would play with exactly the same tone ... I would make exactly the same choices ... and I would use exactly the same guitars he uses ... Have you ever heard a song and a split second before the next note or lyric came you KNEW what it was going to be? Well ... when Tom is playing, that note you thought you were going to hear is not the one he plays ... it is a better one ... one you didn't think of ... but once you hear it, you know it could never have been another ... because all the others were simply not the right one ... now ... that is an admittedly convoluted effort at trying to explain/describe something that is way beyond words ...

I love these guys ... they take my songs far beyond ... way higher ... down deeper

and they make me reach
