Feature/Interview in the April 2014 issue

"Progressive rock influenced by dinosaur bands from the 1970s has slowly been inching its way back into public consciousness.

"Listening to the music is like driving in a speeding car down a windy road being thrown to one side and then the next. The DVD videos he created for each composition only reinforce his eclectic approach displaying visuals that run the gamut from psychedelic to humorous. It’s a wild ride and fans of Crimson or Fripp inspired guitar would do well to check it out. Seriously cool performances."
