Obviously you are not the main guy, but you are definitely the second most recognizable guy on the stage. Do you ever get recognized outside of a show? Like at the grocery store or on vacations?

Also, during your career with Al, have you ever thought "it can never get bigger than this"? Like when you did the Tomorrow show, the first headlining tour or anything like that?

I'm recognized by fans near a venue before or after a show, and by drummers and in music stores fairly regularly. But in other contexts, it's pretty rare. Maybe it's happened two or three times... ever. :)

Every now and then we realize that things have come pretty far, and I've yet to see signs of leveling off. The internet has heralded new types of exposure, and that's certainly helped keep the momentum going. I don't think it's ever a question of getting bigger though, it's a great ride and if nothing changed, that would be fine with me!
