    He is quite a good player, I love his playing. But nobody ever talk about him, here or in magasine.

    what do you think of him?
  2. I saw him with The Firm back in '86 and I thought he was great. Not a lot of fretless players in arena rock back then.

    Last time I heard him was on Carmin Appice's Guitar Zeus. Solid. Just not one of my favorites (no offence!).

    He and Chris Slade are what made The Firm work. When I saw them live, I was astounded at how tight they were. I usually remember to list them on those "best rhythm sections" threads - maybe I should pop over there and do it.

    Tony's bad. Blue Murder was great! He also played a wicked line on "Black Widow" on the Humanary Stew - Tribute to Alice Cooper album
