How is possible, that one man, has played with all the great musicians of the world. I love Toto, David Foster, Richard Marx, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, and with all of these men, Greg touched my soul. Thanks Greg and see you in Spain soon.

Hey! I am no musician but I know talent when I here it. Phillinganes caught my ear playing "Fairy Tales" for Anita Baker. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. I never forgot his name and often ask or tell others about him. He is the real thing.
