When I first heard a Sabu demo tape back in 1990 I couldn't believe he wasn't a big success...what a voice. While working with him on the first Tattoo Rodeo album, I was blown away by the power in his voice. He would pop into the booth and do some background Vox and just blow us away. "Save A Place In Your Heart" is a killer tune, such an 80's vibe. His last album was pretty heavy, and he seemed to be quite gravely, although I like "Rock Don't Run" a lot.

I can say as a collaborator, he's a gem. He works REALLY fast, and isn't afraid to throw something at the wall to see if it sticks...he doesn't get bent if it doesn't. I can be difficult to work with (just ask Ragno) but Paul was up for the dance, and I'm quite happy with his work on "I".

I think his 80's Vox are long gone, but I believe he still has a lot of music in him...needs the right vehicle.
