Just a short message about the perserverance of quite possibly my favorite player(Jonas Hellborg running a close second!)A few months ago I saw Percy w/Tunnels at an outta the way Baltimore bar.I was prepared for disaster,no one was there and the venue,for lack of a better word,was a dump.but,nonetheless Tunnels forged ahead and put on one hell of a progressive fusion show.And,I'm new to this board,but after seeing Percy LAY it down,up,sideways and off the neck w/his IBANEZ EDA5 Fretless(magnetic p/u removed!)Old-skool GrooveTubes preamp(built by SWR,eons ago!)powered by a beat-up CROWN PB-2 runnin' into some no-name 2-15 cab;I gotta say it was refreshing,considering how much time people waste talking about who's gear is better and whatnot.The fact that this TRUE ORIGINAL(IE,the tone,NO ONE and I mean NO ONE sounds like Percy!) was still able to burn it up for like maybe 25 people,man my hat is off to you Percy>A prince of a guy to boot!Thats all for now,just thought I'd share that w/ you all.
