in an exclusive live DVD of the band in a private performance for promotion of new SONY
technology on disc although at that time the music business was severely hurt by changes in the
way music was distributed and the decline of physical media and with differences in creative
direction within the band made things impossible to continue.

honing his talent as a composer, writer and studio musician.

friend and highly recognized Danish guitarist Noah Rosanes.
