I've been called by a few different nicknames. If you know me by one of them, you can still use it if you want. I guess you can say you earned the right to use the name, and somehow, so did I.
As I recall, here are the people that I've played with in some capacity. I am thankful to have been able to spend time with all these talented musicians. If you see your name here, drop me a note to say "Hi". If you don't see your name and you should, drop me a note to say "Hey, what's up, did you forget...?".
