Phenomenal fusion guitarist who has been involved in the Zawinul Syndicate for a long time as well as doing his own thing in various configurations. I remember reading about him in one of Guitar Player magazine's Spotlight columns in the '80s. He is a serious badass with some very interesting lines and concepts! I hear he is also a great sitar player in the traditional Indian music forms, but I have not even begun to get into that yet. Also a great vocalist who did the ethereal voice at the beginning of Eric Johnson's Venus Isle.
