A special thanks to Michael Woodford (Germany) who is putting together a little video for us. I am currently working hard on my new album "Destiny's Fire" with Yolande Strauss (South Africa), Adam Kirby (USA), Matt Kaprelian (USA) and Enrico Nichelatti (Italy). We should have two new songs posted this month and I'll be vamping up to begin promotion of our album...can't wait! What did I get myself into :)? I am organizing a group of ten musicians from the USA to put together "Wired" magazine's album in a month for February. We are called the "Gigootzonians" and our album will be called "The Gweetz Experiment". This will be my first time collaborating with this group but they are anxious to get started and I have a ton of lyric ideas floating around in my head.

I will also be writing lyrics for the "Album in a Month" with Kompoz again so look forward to hanging out with this group as well for the month. Our last year's album turned out amazing...considering our timeframe. I'm excited to let you know that my band "Benny and the Misplaced Texans" should have several new songs completed soon that will be available on i-tunes for all our fans. Thanks Benny Moore (Texas), Henry Mittnatch (Germany), Andy Gupta (Canada) and Ian Burrage (England).

I did my very first on-line collaboration with Dave called "Dark Demons". This song actually hit "No. 1" on Ourstage and has been voted song No. 1 for a CD Rock compilation as well.
Not only is Dave a "Hot Rocker Guitarist" he is an amazing painter and I've used one of his paintings for my album "Destiny's Fire" with Yolande Strauss. Welcome Dave, can't wait to move forward with some of your tunes xxx. My epic rock album from Stonehinged: "Trevor and Roger's 13 Stygian Tales" has been at a bit of a stand-still due to "real-life" activities lol!
