I can't believe no one mentioned Dead Set... when I got that album it was the first Loser I'd heard... must have listened to that song on repeat for an entire day learning the chords and trying to memorize that solo note for note... the G chord coming out of the solo into the chorus is magic

I'm also a big fan of any version Bruce sings

Hey Bouk, I just heard from Grateful Gary. I hadn't known he was with PW - nice score!! He's an excellent singer and a double threat, instrumentally. All-around great guy.

yeah he's been onboard for many months now... I don't think there's anyone else I've performed with who is a nicer guy or as tasteful of a player.. really brought Paradise Waits to a new level with his monster bass playing and heartfelt vocals... not to mention he's the band's GD historian, sound/lighting guy, recording engineer, and often opens for us solo acoustic... I made a joke at our last show that he'd be "juggling bowling pins on a tightrope after the show"
