In early 1994 I got a call from guitar player friend Mike Tovar. He was playing with Bobby Kimball and they were looking for a bass player. I ended up playing with Bobby for a couple of years. It was a fun band in a very Spinal Tap sort of way. The tour of Germany opening for Kansas was especially memorable in that regard. I have some very funny video clips that will make it onto the site at some point. With Mike Tovar- guitar, Jimmy Griego - drums, and Jim Austin- keys. John Jordan carried the load. These shots were pulled from 8mm video.
November 1994, Frankfurt. On tour with Bobby Kimball, opening for Kansas. Jim Austin and Jimmy Griego discuss advantages of van versus bus.
