My buddy Martin Reaves jammin’ just a little bit on his father’s old Gibson guitar — the guitar he learned to play on 40 years ago. Marty and I went to middle and high school together. During high school, veryone around campus started calling him “Marty Van Halen” after he and his band played their first party.
He’s a man of many talents, including singing at one time for the northern California R&B cover band Foxtrot Mary, playing guitar, and writing scary, disturbing fiction.
