AQqt01_02Sandy is one of my favorite drummers!  He's always right there with you when jamming, and speaking of jamming, he's the s**t... Some drummers simply, "learn parts" and call it a day...not Mr. G!  Ready to have fun on any twists and turns you can throw at him - I love this guy onstage and off!"
Ronnie Montrose
