    So,, was at my pastors house and he says he found a bunch of old vinyls. He says "oh and here's John Patituccis old band". Come to find out he's known him personally for 20 years and used to try and get him gigs when he was an assistant pastor at a church in the LA area.

    Just thought that was semi interesting.

    Very cool story. John has recorded several Christian recordings over the years too. What a great guy he is, nice man and fantastic musician/teacher.

    John is indeed a very nice guy--friendly and not in the least arrogant. And of course he's one of the very few I've ever heard who's equally scary on electric and upright. (But only musically scary, not personally!;) )
