The tone of that was so perfect! Deep bottom and excellent snap and it was a really quick sound, not muddy or floppy.
Hold the phone- you play in Shakedown St. now, e? Is Ted G. still the Man?
Nope. Ted has retired from Shakedown. Josh Rosen has taken the Jerry chair. It's actually a pretty different band than from years past. I did play at Ted's last few gigs about a year ago. Definitely a fun dude!
