8/6/12 It is with great sadness that I say good bye to a friend this week whom i toured with and sang with on and off for over 15 years, Tony Sly. The songwriter and front person for No Use for a Name asked me to sing on several of his records, both with full band and his acoustic solo releases. It was a great honor. He was a really wonderful touring mate,a genuinely hilarious guy, great musician, father, songwriter, and friend. I will miss him. Here are a few songs i sang on. See you on the Outside Tony.
