    Thanks for asking. I worked as a guitar tech for 25 years. When I wasn't on the road I worked as a stagehand. 35 years in show biz all together.

    Here's a few of my bosses/clients
    Sonny Landreth with Roy Rogers. I worked for both of them at various points.

    I just realized these pictures are like 3 years apart and coincidentally he seems to be wearing the same suit.

    I had the privilege of seeing Buddy Guy in the midst of a snowstorm in Green Bay a number of years ago. Great show, even though he wasn't feeling well.

    That's really cool to see. I bet you have lots of stories too!

    Thanks, guys...It was a lot of fun sometimes, a lot of work usually...

    I always used to say "This crazy business. I'm always poor, no retirement, no 401k, no profit sharing.... I shoulda went to law school"...
