That’s him in this picture changing the tire. Mannn, we thought we were big time with this Trailer!! LOL Any musician reading this knows the true struggle of what it really takes to even be heard or to even be hired for a gig!! To all my fellow musicians out there, NEVER GIVE UP! Keep doing what you love
