I even learned something, as I normally do at these events; that all of the greatest guitar players are from Texas! As a guitar player myself, I knew that Eric Johnson and Stevie Ray were from Texas, but who could ever have imagined that the likes of Clapton, Beck, Montgomery, Pass, Vai, Van Halen, Metheny, Satriani, Carlton, Poland, Becker, even Jimi Hendrix were from Texas…and those are only the jazz/rock/fusion guys! You learn something new everyday.
What a great cause, and I’m fortunate enough to be involved in. The picture below shows, Dr. Cheryl Williams of the UNM Cancer Center, mayor of Las Cruces Bill Mattiace, and Memorial Medical Center CEO Paul Herzog.
