An F# note just feels better with one arm in the air.

Thank you to all who came to the Mr. Big shows in South America! We play our last show here in Chile tomorrow, and then fly back to the U.S.A.

Rock and Roll!

I had the pleasure and honor of jamming with Eric Johnson and Mike Stern at their show in L.A. I had a great talk with Eric after the show. We talked about Elvis, Chuck Berry, B.B. King, and Aaron Copeland. Mostly, my head is still spinning from Eric's amazing unaccompanied 10-minute guitar solo. It's wonderful to hear someone who has so successfully developed their own voice on the guitar. 

P.S. Eric's guitar tech just sent this backstage photo to me.
