As we move forward into 2011, I'd like to pay tribute to a friend. I met Greg Gibbs back in 2001 - both of our bands at the time were doing a 9/11 tribute show and he had to drop off some flyers for me. Shortly after that performance, my brother and I invited Greg to play some shows with Audra on bass guitar. For one reason or another Greg stopped playing with us and then we reconnected in 2008. One of my greatest memories of our time together is a show we did in Tampa, Florida back in August 2008. That weekend was just out of control fun.
Greg Gibbs passed away on August 26, 2010. He left behind his wife Maresa, a daughter, a huge family and a ton of friends. At the time of his passing, Greg and I hadn't spoken in a while, but hardly a day goes by where I don't think of him. I will never forget his sense of humor and incredibly generous spirit.
