In the music industry friendships can be fleeting but the bond between Smokin' Joe Kubek and myself endured the test of time. Our love of guitars kept us in touch with each other no matter where we separately were in the world and I miss him dearly today. Rocky & Joe's Hail Damage Shuffle is the result of our first and last opportunity to record some fun together.

After years of non-stop touring, I wanted to make an album that would let me connect with my friends and just have fun playing guitar. Long time friend, Smokin' Joe Kubek was a natural fit and we had a lot of fun hanging out together in the studio jamming. In retrospect, I am very grateful and blessed to have spent some time with my very dear friend. I am very proud of the results. You can never go wrong when you combine work with pleasure and Joe was a real pleasure to work with!
