"When we had the chance to open for Bon Jovi and Aerosmith, John was our first call to mix our set. We wanted someone that we could trust without question so we wouldn't have to worry about anything. When we opened for Aerosmith, we didn't get a sound check or even a line check - John had us sounding great before our first chorus!”
