Always liked this guy's playing...
well said!His debut album was something of a miracle. Young guy (I think he was 23?) comes out of nowhere with an instantly identifiable style, and an album loaded--I mean LOADED--with great hooks and killer songs. Masterly with the "trem as slide" technique. Massive chops that he used with splendid taste. Said in an interview that the beginning of "I Know A Little" always gave him trouble.
Lives in NorCal. Only tours in Europe now, it's the only place where it really pays to do so. Put out an album called "Yep" a few years ago. Lots of slide and vocals. Real slide, not the pseudo slide. Turned the amount of gain down significantly long ago. Family oriented guy, likes to be home.What ever happened to him?
I went through four or five Japanese Pacificas back in the day. Absolute stellar guitars, especially the high-end neck-thru jobbers.
