He seems fairly averse to any kind of publicity or attention which is probably why we don't hear more about him.
Surprised to see him up there in age though, he always seemed so young in his early career. I guess that was long ago. ;)

What, my crappy playing? Or you getting worse?


You've heard me play, but unfortunately I have already quit my day job.
