Hey everyone! Happy near-the-end-of-March to you.
Just returned from Larvik, Norway from a sold-out night at the Guitar Festival there. Great hang, great crowd and great times playing my songs with Are Gogstad and Rune Pederson (bass and drums), and jamming on Chicago and Hendrix tunes with Paul Gilbert and other pals. Thanks to everyone at the Festival, especially Anders, for bringing me over. So much fun!
More fun a-comin’: at the end of this week I’m taking Beer For Dolphins out for a few shows on the east coast, and one in Texas. These are trio shows with Bryan Beller and Joe Travers, except for The Iridium in NYC where Rick Musallam will be joining us.
Excitement! Multiple notes! We are so jazzed to be playing these shows! I’ve spiked the setlist with some pretty old songs that haven’t been played in a darn long time – at least one hasn’t been played live since Drop Control were still together.

Scambot 2 Factoids
We’re shipping the 2-CD Scambot 2 signed and numbered limited edition of 2000. The double-CD set consists of the Scambot 2 album (65 minutes of music) and the Inkling album (48 minutes of music) in a colorful digi-pak, with two handsome booklets nestled within. You’ll get an immediate download of Scambot 2 as soon as you pre-order. (You’ll have to wait until your CD set arrives to hear Inkling, which, by the way, features the brilliant RICK MUSALLAM on the song “Cram”!!)
Scambot 2 itself is also available as a single-album paid download. (Inkling won’t be available as a download – it’s only available as part of the 2-CD set.)
