I think he had other commitments starting in August. Sure did hear raves about his playing and chemistry with the band though.
Still in the band?

I cant wait til tomorrow : The Rhythm Devils are going to be here, in Rochester at the Water St. Music Hall. I saw them at The Gathering Of the Vibes and they were rockin, Wonderful to see/ hear Mickey and Billy drumming together again, and I love the new line -up ! Espescially Davy Knowles- singing ! I really enjoy all the Grateful Dead songs ( Scarlet Fire blew me away ) that they do, I thought they were refreshing and at the same time had Deja Vu of The Grateful Dead 1979 :) O O while dancing. Also I want to request VooDoo Zombie... love dancing to this song... come to this show I think you will be really surprised ! they are fantastic... have a few friends that are going to the Buffalo/Niagara Falls show this Friday too, maybe ?? see you there Liz Kemp (Dancingsinginggirl) OO play on- KEEP LISTENING
So, so stoked for Friday at Bear's Den Niagara. I hear it's like 500 seats? Yeowwzaaa! Gonna chase it with Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble in Woodstock the next night, Sept 11, with Sam Bush... Good time for this Canadian head to be in a NY state of mind.
It seems there are few rabid devils fans on this site, but like I posted in Tix Offered, got an extra for Friday if anyone's interested. I'll be trying to sell at cost the night of the show unless I hear from you sooner.
Catch all you heads down on Rainbow Blvd!
Damn, awesome show last night. Basically tore it up. Great to see everybody out there enjoying themselves. The band seems to gelling bigtime. Sweet mix of classics , gutsy soulful blues, in the pocket grooves and oh my - that bass player and the gentlemen behind the kits were just ferocious! I love going home whistling Ripple. Nice. Thanks guys. Definitely catch this incarnation if they swoop in anywheres near u.
I was blown away. I just wish I would have planned better and took off from Steamboat to Idaho and then Salt Lake at the very least. They are worth travelling for is what I'm getting at!! I'm very grateful for being able to see them twice and am hoping for more shows in the future. The Vibes will be out of hand!! Have fun everyone!

Leaving in 1/2 an hour to head down to Mission Beach for the show tonight... can't wait to hear the Devils!
These excited reviews of the tour so far are really getting me stoked for Niagara Falls in September, and JAMcruise in January!!! Glad that Billy and Mickey are turning it up a notch and keeping it sharp. Love you guys!
