No I'm not with Pappa Shine anymore. I had a couple of dozen bands actually on the go. Rock Island Blues Band was one of them, Pappa Shine. I played with Joey Kidson and bunch of other good fellows and now I'm with another band called Chuckle Head. We also do a remake of Lugnuts which was a heavy band I was in about 10 years ago. Ya we are doing that again, just having fun over there. I just love playing.
The first reunion we did was 2000 in Charlottetown, a big New Years type of thing. We decided we would re-group for that and we enjoyed it so much that we went to Winnipeg later that summer and did a gig and we have been doing a few festivals here and there.
Actually the first tour we ever did as a recording act was with Kim in 86, and that was cross Canada doing all the arenas and soft seaters and it was a really successful tour, and gave us a lot of exposure. He was coming down here and doing some dates, so we thought it would be neat to work with him again because it was such a good experience before. We did the Maritimes and Toronto with him and it worked out really good.
