Check out my old friend's recent gig

This is Rat Race Choir - they used to RULE the tri-state club scene many years ago.
Mark Hitt was a very close friend of mine for a long time and I consider him the best guitarists I've ever had the pleasure to play with. They recently got together for a special engagement.

Here's one of his originals - Pythagoris -

Mark toured with John Entwhistle and played with Steve Vai once too. He was on the cover of the Dimarzio catalog in 1978. All you young'uns take a look at an old guy who still has it goin' on ;^)

Remember, these guys are now in their 50's - 60's. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's good stuff though, not normally into that sort of music but I thought both vids were great - thanks for posting!

Actually, he reminded me of Malmsteen when I saw him a few years back...At least in the waist line and theatrics.

Not that it was a bad show..sorry if it seems we are being hard on him. At least he is out there giging and appears to have had a much better career than most of us will have in music.

Glad it wasn't just me. That's too funny.

Hey, at least those guys are still out there gigging. I think that's really cool.
