Me and Jimmy Paxson (Ben Harper, Stevie Nicks, Natalie Maines). I studied with Jimmy’s dad at UArts in Philly. When Jim Sr was sick, Jimmy came out to Philly to take care of him, hang out, and even substitute teach for him. During that time I was able to hang with Jimmy, and become friends with him. He is the one “insider” that has always looked out for me, willing to give advice, and listen to me talk about moving to LA and never doing it.
