Frans-
 
Man, you kill me.  :) Just had to say that.  I think you've got to be the most under-rated bass player out there.  Thanks for all the great music. I've been a fan ever since I picked up U Turn.

Yes Frans..welcome. We are probably all enthralled with the version of Wristkiller on the recently released RHP II right about now, and the version on Seb's disc was just as good. Nice playing and nice writing! Really liked Go For It! too. Feel free to let us know what's new and coming soon

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. As far as the new Claude Pauly album is concerned I really dont know when it is coming. We did some recording this summer but Claude seems to be a bit unsure about the direction the album should go. It's up to him ofcourse ;)
In the near future there will be a new release of Sebastiaan on wich I will contribute the low end together with Gary Willis, very cool. Hoping Marc Guillermont is finishing of his new CD soon, with drummer Gary Novack. Im working on my own work to, but that will be more a "Once in a lifetime" solo effort in time. Im perfectly happy being a sidekick, writing for others and making other musicians sound good if I get the ocassional solo spot, lol!
