    I saw Thin Lizzy this past Friday in Virginia and Marco is handling the bass duties (has been for a few years now). Got to hand out with him before and after the show. A super nice guy and a helluva player.

    Of course Thin Lizzy rocked (except for TOmmy Aldridge, he's boring, always has been, always will be...he was a total jerk too).

    Marco's thing with Conklin fell thru- he play a Fernandes fretless 6 a lot- i guess with the rock gigs he plays fours- hes a monster player and a great guy-

    i knew the deal fell through, but i thought maybe he was still playing the basses, they were very cool.
