Good singer, great guitarist. It's a shame he's not gotten more exposure, and some apparently only know him as 'the dude who got kicked out of Poison'...

Guy has Mad talent.... Still don't understant why he's not a much bigger star. Although, he did open up for the Stones on a recent tour. So, I guess that does count for something...

Grew up in the same town as him. He used to play in a local band called Arthur's Museum back in the day. Quite an arrogant guy then. Despite that, I like his voice/playing.

You know he's good if Billy Sheehan would tour with him.

Maybe he needs to write a John Mayer-esque type of tune to get the recognition he deserves. ??

Extremely talented, soulful player and singer.
Met him a few times and was always cool.

This guy is a singer's singer, a bad ass guitar player and a great writer. He really has a soulful vibe. Why isn't he a superstar? I love a lot if his stuff. Mother's Head Family Reunion really turned my head years ago.

He's great. Though I don't hear much about him anywhere. He definitely doesn't get enough recognition.

I think he needs to get a better publicist. I know a guy in his genre won't rule the world but his material falls right beside The Black Crowes and a lot of other soul-rock artists.

I just interviewed him for a forth coming issue of PG. He's an interesting guy and an amazing guitarist.

I was at this performance and he was bad ass! Why he is not a superstar is beyond me.

I'm a huge fan, both of the voice and of the guitar and have several of his solo CDs. (he sings a lot on his solo CDs)

They're brilliant!

Has a style all of his own and I'll never understand the lack of popularity. Guy still looks like a model, plays like a guitar god, has a great set of pipes and comes up with great songs.

Definitely needs different kind of marketing to make it big.

I'll always love him tearing it up on "Burn" w Mr. Big.
