“Wow, you play ass off man! I’m really enjoying the CD’s you gave me – it’s a pleasure to listen to such a great player!. You’ve got such and original and unique sound and you also have great songs which impresses me even more – you know, so many people give me CD’s and it’s usually hard to listen to them, so it’s a rare treat when I get to hear something this good… thanks!!”

“I hope next time I come to Spain we can meet and maybe sit and play a little together – I really dig your playing! There are some cuts on the CD that I’m listening to over and over again in the van. Fucking cool stuff, man!”
