And yes, it's very exciting when he lets loose to get down a bit, dancing on stage. Can't wait to hear the kinds of vocals Duncan will bring in future recordings and live shows.
Peace,

P.S. Wicked Drumming on the SO tour Jimmy, wicked!

I'm sure I don't know what you mean Jen Personally I think he's been practising with the wrong set of lyrics.
