AFTER THE STORM: If you look closely on the cover of my 2019 solo album "Scenes From The Flood", you'll see a lone yucca-ish plant on the right side of the frame. I took that picture in late 2017. Sometime in 2020, a storm knocked that plant down, and I thought, welp, that's what happens.

It had been a while since I'd been back to that spot, but I was there today...and while it's not exactly what it was, it's growing rapidly towards its former glory.

I'm sure there's a metaphor or allegory in here somewhere.

K2: Last but not least my series of pics from the The G4 Experience is me in this keyboard wizard sandwich. To my left, Rai Thistlethwayte, and to my right, the inimitable Jordan Rudess. Man, these guys are good. I actually started out as a pianist, with five years of classical lessons starting at age 8. Watching these kings play reconfirms the wisdom of my teenage choice to switch to electric bass!

(The last serious classical piece I tackled was the famously difficult 3rd movement of Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”, and while I managed to somehow hamfist my way through it at my final recital, a voice inside me began to cry out “hey, let’s play one note at a time, howbow dah?”)

THE TRAILBLAZER: You can draw a line from pretty much everyone of note I've ever worked with straight back to Jeff Beck, whose boundless creativity and inventive sonic artistry made instrumental guitar-driven rock and fusion a thing in the first place. RIP. ... See MoreSee Less

K2: Final pic from G4 Experience is this keyboard wizard sandwich: @RaiThisMusic (L) & the inimitable @Jcrudess (R). I actually started out on piano, w/5 yrs of classical lessons starting at age 8. Watching these kings play reconfirms the wisdom of me switching to bass at 13!
