    I've been really getting into Greg's writing and playing again lately. There should be law against having this much talent. Such a strange style too. I could never get used to the whole sliding capo thing he does but man has he got that technique down! I wish I had caught his tour with Protocol this year. He is not currently on the road according to his website so, maybe he's busy in the studio! He is only getting better with time, just a beast. Such a musically expressive player.

    From his last album Wheelhouse:


    From 1993's Introspection:

    That would be Steve Howe. Greg Howe once played for a Micheal Jackson tour if that counts. He was a metal shredder in the 80's that not much later became a premier fussion player. He is known for his more flashy stuff but he is very musical player. Just a monster.

    Heres a tune that showcases some very nice tone and one crazy tight band. I believe this is Jon Reshard on bass and Vinnie Caliuto on drums.

    He never played hockey in Canada, either.
