Bernie works in the TABPIG shipping and receiving
department. Actually, he USED to work for a package/parcel carrier in Nashville, so now he's our shipping and receiving
Currently he's working in the "document destruction" field. Don't ask.
From the photo and what we call getting together at his house, it
should be obvious why we call him Bernie. If you're too slow to figure that one out,
The Joe "Nada"
comes from the fact he hasn't gotten out of the gate yet
with a "true" PIG TAB. He does this thing we call "The Bernie Bounce"
when he's playing in the zone. The Bernie Bounce is like a steam locomotive
with it's connecting rods and joints flying everywhere.....let's just say he's "high-energy funky", and you can hold the caffeine.
Bernie is definitely wired for sound
and has his own twist on many Leo songs. To his credit
though, he's actually recorded in a "real" studio and made a
very good CD titled "When Pigs Fly".
He has the primo LKSM-12 of the group, also
a Takamine 6 string and a Morrell Resonator. He had
a used Tak 12 string relegated purely to slide - but this guitar
was the loser in an altercation with with the airport tarmac in Nashville - or St. Louis - or both from the looks of it. When we last heard, Bernie was looking
for a replacement.
Bernie's idea of a slow ballad is
