Hi Evan, I couldn't help but try and give you a big shout about how I was always a big NRPS fan. Damn, I know you have some stories and memories to share with those miles on the road. I just saw NRPS last year here in NC. Were you with them then. Any way, It's great to speak with you. Thanks, Rick
Yeah I played with the NRPS from about '91 through '97-98? and am on their CD "Midnight Moonlight" along with several great guitar players and others like Norton Buffalo and John Pederson. It was a pretty fun time for the most part, played all over the East Coast all the way down to Florida and most other states as well.. "Marmaduke" Dawson died a couple or so years ago and David Nelson took the band back over. I was actually not at the show you speak of though. Good speaking with you too Rick...thanks again, Evan

"Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of…"
