“I suggested that Bruce send a CD your way for review. I did a review at tuckerhead. Feel free to use all or part of it in Gritz. I LOVE his cover of This Ol Cowboy. Sounds like vintage MTB. He sure nailed Toy's tone on the guitar! Simply amazing. I loved his 1992 CD Love the Ride as well - the one with the TCB doing Welcome to the Human Race. I haven't heard the second CD but I gotta believe it's great as well. I want to help him all I can becasue his music is just incredible. I think alot of folks would feel the same way, if they just heard it... So, please - help me spread the word!”
