Marco Minnemann with UKZ

Okay, I just heard about this one. Eddie Jobson (ex Zappa violinist and founder of the Prog Rock super group UK) has formed a new band, UKZ, featuring Marco Minnemann on drums. As if that weren't enough, he's got Alex Machacek on guitar, and Trey Gunn on Warr guitar.

So let's see.... Marco is one of my favorite drummers, I play Chapman Stick and I think Trey is one of the coolest touchstyle players on the planet, Alex plays on one of my favorite Terry Bozzio DVDs, and I grew up with Jobson. I saw Eddie Jobson with Frank Zappa and I saw him open up for Jethro Tull (with Terry Bozzio on drums).

That said, I am going to do everything within my power as a human being to see them play live.
