Billy Sheehan played in David Lee Roth's first solo band with Steve Vai.

Hamm and Berlin are mind-blowing musicians. Check any of them out if you want to hear guys who can play the bass better than almost anyone else. If it goes the same as the G3 tours, each will do his own set and then all three will jam for the finale.

The only bassist that I am very familiar with is Les Claypool, I think some of his stuff is great. What styles do these guys play?

Sheehan is rock, Hamm is muti-styled, and Berlin is jazz/fusion.

That would be correct. ;)

I just clicked on your link and listenend to the song Red Room. That song is really good. You guys really rock, and while I was listening to it, and please don't take this as a negative, but you guys made me think of WhiteSnake or Great White. You have that same sound. Great job man.

Thanx man. We don't sound too much like that anymore though. We've gotten a little heavier. More of a Dio sound now. The next CD will show that. :wink:

Stu Hamm is amazing!
I always liked Berlin's stuff also, I love Jazz, but when it gets too "fusion-y" it loses me....

Dio has some great music.I have Holy Diver and a few others.I remember when he was with Rainbow. Let me know when the CD is done, and I'll probably buy a copy.

This is off topic, but Pagan, did you ever decide on making the mirrors on the mustang white too? :lol: , I've been doin' a lot of traveling lately so maybe you ended up answering that question a LONG time ago, but I never heard anything else on it.

I have a couple friends visitng me out here right now and they have a 2006 (I think, lol, it's only got 1,750 miles on it) Mustang convertible (red) as their rental. It's pretty nice, and I don't even like convertibles OR automatics, so I'm assuming yours is just nasty since it isn't a convertible, it's a standard (which all damn "sports" cars should be) and you are putting all that work into it.
