You can run, but you cannot hide, Billy Thunders!! Glad to have chatted with you in SL last night, and how funny that I had just cruised through your tunes just the other day but didn't make the connection. You are sounding good! Where is my slide guitar?? Come on!! Make me happy!! Hugs and hearts coming your way...just have to decide which one to tap :-) Your tour is coming soon.....keeping fingers and toes crossed for a successful trip!
