Nuno is a phenomenal guitarists, both as a soloist and the stuff he did with Extreme. He's still killing it to this day. Just saw a video of him the other day playing with Brad Paisley and some others.

A distant cousin of my wife, she babysit him as a baby. He gave my nephew the Black acoustic he used in More Than Words. The big hit that took him over the top. Several years ago we flew into Boston and attended a small family Birthday party for him about 15 people. I was able to spend some quality time with him as he was recording in the white room. He did all the music for Extreme then pitched to the group. He also recorded a 60 piece orchestra in England that he wrote every single note for every instrument used. He grew up in the same island of the Azores as my wife. He is amazingly talented. Oh well not the place for this post but we will discuss sometime. I think I still have the magazine when they compared him to Hendrix. Guitar World or People mag canít remember. We will discuss sometime because I know you Luv Guitarist! He self taught himself music, really amazing!

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.
