    I don't know him, but I could maybe ask him the next time I happen to see him. Her band practices in the same building where we have our studio.

    I don't know what he used during the recording, but I caught the beginning of the tour, and Hubert was using a red Modulus Q5, before switching over to the MTD 5. Btw, his dad was in D Train. Look it up, youngins! Also in the show, Erika was blown off stage by the opening act, Sleepy's Theme, led by Pat "Sleepy" Brown (Outkast) with LaMarquis Jefferson on bass. Sleepy's dad is a founding member of legendary funk band, Brick. Marq played his Lakland 5 with a drumstick that night. God, I hated him! :)
