So I’m walking in the airport in Phoenix, and coming toward me is someone I know, well….I know who he is, but we have never met before. I stop him respectfully, confirm that this was in fact whom I knew it was, and introduced myself.

I stated that Eddie and I were just talking about him and that Ed was going to try to get ahold of him to catch up. He smiled, was very kind, asked how Ed was and that he would reach out to him for sure. It was none other than the legendary badass bassist, Michael Anthony. He was traveling to do a show with Hagar. Highlight of my day, and I was geeked-out inside a bit ;) Ciao

So is Todd referring to Eddie Jackson from Qeensryche….?


EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.
