Marco Mendoza hits the road on brief 'Hartke' clinic tour in May
Yes, as seriously busy as the guy is ... - He's just returned home briefly, so he told me, from a few months on the road with Thin Lizzy. - Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, Ted Nugent, Blue Murder, Soul SirkUS), is about to go out and do some promo / clinic work with Hartke amplification, with a few select dates. Go and check his playing out and say 'Hi!'
Marco is a real gentlemen, in the true sense of the word and a fantastic bassist.
Go on, show the man your support!
