    Brian was the last guitar player for the Atomic Punks, who are regarded the premier VH dave-era cover band. They play mainly the West Coast of the US, but are beginning to branch out.

    Yes, Brian is phenomenal. I got to see him with the Punks back in March before Dave added him to his band for this tour. Cool thing is he has the entire package down, the chops, the stage presence, and the comfort with his playing that makes him come across as incredibly natural doing Ed's stuff. A few of our board members have taken lessons from him in the past, including Fab Shadow and Kujo5150.

    Vai played on Roth's first two solo albums after his split from VH.

    Actually, the Punks branched out quite some time ago.

    When they first started out, they were initially playing in the SoCal area, with occasional dates that eventually turned regular in Arizona, Vegas, and Seattle. They've already been to Hawaii and played on the East Coast quite a few times. I even lobbied like a mofo to get them to play on base in Japan, where I was previously stationed, but the entertainment director decided to save money by hiring cheap-ass cover Filipino bands that could barely karaoke, let alone pass themselves off as talented musicians. Ralph gave me an audition videotape and an 8x10 glossy for the powers-that-be, but it just never materialized.

    As an afterthought, Brian was the best guitarist the Punks ever had. Better than Bart Walsh, IMO. And, sadly enough, don't expect him back. I asked Ralph last Friday night when they played here in San Diego if Brian was ever coming back after the DLR tour, and he said "No". When I asked why, he said, "What Dave wants, Dave gets, y'know?"

    There ya have it.

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."
