I have had the privelege of talking to Billy Sheehan twice in the last two weeks. He's a real cool guy and even complimented me on my tone and groove! I guess he lives like a block away from The Sherman Oaks Lounge and Dear Jon was playing. Not quite the situation I would like him to see me play in, but he's done the same shit. Billy said that he is doing a record with Steve Vai and a Bay area drummer (I didn't catch the name.) and, I think, another Niacin record. Goes to show you, you never know who's out there in the crowd.
