My pal SCOTTY JOHNSON, lead guitarist of the GIN BLOSSOMS, performed on my first two cds as well. He created some wonderful guitar work and thinks very differently than I do, when it comes to solos and rhythm and that is what made his participation so special. He has a solo CD out now and you can find it on his MY SPACE music page.

George Keller, Robin Wilson and Myself at URANUS RECORDING in Tempe, AZ
George is an amazing engineer and worked on my first two cds. We have a wonderful working relationship and have become friends over the years. I never have to say much during the mix downs, because he pretty much nails it right away. Robin only works with quality people and George is definitely one of them.
Phillip Rhodes is the original GIN BLOSSOMS drummer. He no longer plays with the band, SCOTT KUSMIREK is their hired gun now. During my first session in TEMPE, AZ, Phillip had rejoined the band briefly and played drums on my songs "Goodbye" and "Brand New Love." I really liked the sound he had and what an amazing drummer.
My brother Chris and I, with my first guitar, on our front porch at 11730 S. Rosemary Lane. My brother Chris is going through some very rough times right now. Please keep him in your prayers.
Here is a PAUL COKER, JR. model sheet from HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL with his Leprechaun Bunny! I have the CD filled with RANKIN/BASS Easter music + more for $20 shipped PAYPAL Rickgoldsc@aol.com I also have the FIRST EASTER RABBIT collector's DVD for $15
It is available on DVD BUT hard to find now. It has a GREAT documentary that was shot by RANKIN/BASS in 1972 and shows all the BEHIND THE SCENES. I own the original print of this documentary (It was a gift from MAURY LAWS)
