Eric Johnson at the Krosswindz gig in Austin City

Krosswindz played a great pub gig at Copa Bar and Grill Austin City Texas on 24th September 2009 and were honoured to have one of the worlds greatest Guitar players drop in to listen-Eric Johnson.The living legend walked in and watched Krosswindz play a set of Fusion including Guitar instrumentals and one special song dedicated especially to him.He hung out with the band in between the 2 sets for almost 45 minutes and had a special one on one guitar talk with me and graciously answered all my questions.

Before Krosswindz reached Austin Mr Park Street close friend and associate of Eric for years was in touch with me and he surprised me when he offered to help the band out with on stage equipment as we were not traveling with our guitar amplifiers and drum kit.He went and had a chat with Eric Johnson and hey presto Eric sent his very own vintage Fender twin reverb amp hand tweaked by Eric himself and Eric's drummer Billy Maddox lent his own drum set complete with all cymbals and hardware!!!
We were speechless when Park walked in with all this gear.
