    My new band (The Clive Murray Band, of whom i am the bassist) played last night at the Cordford Club in the UK (Cornford club is run by Paul Corford of Corford amps fame). We were supporting the superb Rob Balducci, incredible rock instrumentalist, signed to Steve Vai's favoured nations label. We also played with him at Jemfest last week. Any way, we played a blinder of a gig (with a stand in drummer who we met only 3 hours before the gig, who played from charts he made up a couple of days before hand, huge kudos to him). We went down really well, and Rob himself said that he loved my tone!!!!!. Egad!!!. Now that may not mean much to most people, but Rob has got quite a name for himself, and for me to be told that by someone of his stature, is possibly the greatest complement I've ever had.

    If only Steve Vai himself could hear us and make the same comments....
