Mailbox Mayhem: Chad writes, “A couple of months ago, I was listening to 98.7 FM (from Chicago), and there was an interview with you on.  Upon hearing your name, something scratched at the back of my brain...that name sounded vaguely familiar.  Two years ago my step-sons went to see Uli Jon Roth in concert at the House of Blues, and they mentioned a violinist playing along with Uli.  Same person?  Indeed it was.  And needless to say, my step-sons were blown away by both you and Uli. Today I was browsing through the iTunes Music Store to see what was available for Uli-related music and I found your violinrules Podcast with the interview with Uli.  Very cool, thank you for posting that!  He's always a treat to listen to, truly the artist's artist.” ElvisLivesUpstairs writes, “Why does it look like you have a double chin when you play?”
