On the streets of Goteburg, Sweden

Jeff Szalwinski, Rob Rankin, Bob Britt, Les Banks,
Jake Loveridge, Billy Burnette (L to R)

Jeff Szalwinski is an incredibly talented luthier who I begged to go on this trip with me. He takes care of Billy Burnette and Bob Britt. He is the creator of Original Senn guitars and a wonderful, articulate friend.
Rob Rankin was the systems tech for Clair Brothers U.S.. He is a great guy, easy to get along with and dedicated to his gig.
Bob Britt is one of the finest musicians I know, a good friend and a worthy cribbage opponent. Les Banks is Marty Stuart's long-time mixer, now doing FOH with Fogerty. Les is very funny and helpful - he made my "new guy" break-in period easier.
Jake Loveridge is a big, tall, ex-pro baseball player with a superb talent for teching drums and getting the stage set up right. He was invaluable to me for gig info - they don't write manuals on how to do this stuff!
Billy Burnette is the other guitarist/vocalist and a very humorous guy with a great attitude.

We all set out in various groups for a walk in Goteberg and ended up on the same street for a photo.
