Snake has a new cd Still Rockin' After All These Years (see his Home Page) on which he plays most all the instruments.Two exceptions are his pal Frank Markwood, drums on Too Many Girls, Jim Heidenheimer on piano and buddy Lewis Elliott doing a little bass work.

The younger generation who have followed in the foot-steps of the legendary country artists, give Aaron hope for the future of country music and radio.
The Band has given us years of musical & cultural history, in a time where much was lost to political and social upheaveal.
"The Weight" and numerous other songs (written by Levon, Richard, & Rick) is still the best reminder to us all of what was happening "a generation ago".
