    Greetings Mike -

    Pumped up to see that you're in the public eye here at TB. Hope the folks have been nice to ya.

    Ball or Tugboat? - Each track has it's own sound, but I'm wondering how you recorded. You have MONSTER tube tone happening that is unlike other recordings. How'd ya do that? Was each track different? What's the secret?

    Also, I understand you've used some pretty crazy effects in the past, what's in your current set-up? Still using guitar cabs?

    When are ya coming to Minneapolis? First Ave dearly misses you!
