computer geek who lives in Evansville, IN - but we don't
hold that against him. Got his name at TPC#1 as he looks
like a cross between Charles Manson and Jesus Christ.
"Manson" as a call-sign really didn't fit him, (even if he
is 6.2 high), as he's too much of a gentle giant, so he
started out as "Jesus". It wasn't much of a stretch from
there to "HeySuz (think a baseball game was on TV at the
time). HeySuz is the ultimate Kottke groupie - he's been
known to drive 500 miles for a concert. Kottke finally
figured out that he wasn't dangerous apparently, as he's met
& talked with him many times, and has played with Leo
once. He's got quite a few pics on the Kottke
- check em' out.
Ol' HeySuz has a great head for
tunings & phrasing, which has really helped the group.
We rag him on being a Taylor
groupie as well - he must have 500 Taylor logo shirts -
never seen him in anything but. HeySuz works as a computer
specialist for USI, where he is also a part-time student. He
and a buddy created the "Tab Pigs" website - so that
explains why it sucks.
HeySuz is an old (Not quite sure of his age, but he's
for sure younger than
Jet.) rocker who has
"seen the light" so to speak - he currently has:
- Taylor LKSM6
- The “Beast” (Cocobolo/Engelmann)
- The “Son of a Beast” (Small body Jim "Luther" Chelsvig special - walnut/cedar w/koa bindings)
- Larrivee Parlour (Koa/Sitka)
- 1958 Les Paul (double cutaway flat top) - NOT the junior
- Les Paul Standard
- Gibson “The V”
