New Delta Deep Side Project

"I am also working on something called Delta Deep, which is a blues thing. It is Debbi Blackwell-Cook who sang on "Take on the World" and she is on the new Manraze single. We have been doing some recording. Paul [Cook] played drums on one of the tracks as well."

"We've got a couple of tracks down and I played as much guitar as I could before the operation. I will still be able to play slide and I will be able to sing. I have a few of the backing tracks down, maybe four, or five, of them down. It is going to be really cool."
