Based on this interview, Todd is not currently running his upholstery business. It's a nicely done interview.

http://great38.com/news/features/news_now/videos/vid_29.shtml

Yeah, he hasn't done the upholstery for a while, but he's still doing the insurance gig.

I don't think so.  When I talked with him about adjusting at the Belterra show in March, it was all past-tense.

Well then, I stand corrected.  He must finally be able to live off of his QR salary alone now.  Thanks for the clarification.
Or he's just so busy with QR that he doesn't have time for other projects and such.

I'm sure if CG really wanted to do a few one-offs with Todd, that they could find a way to make it work.  I just get the feeling that music is not a priority for at least some of the CG memebers right now.

Jon Drenning seems very happy to be a father these days.  You can't fault a guy for that, but it's a shame that a studio album and live album with Todd never happened.

Might as well post this (now with lyrics!) since it was discussed recently.  ;)

Discordia with Glen Drover https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3El_cNKe5A4

Very cool tune.

Anybody that wants a "physical" copy of the Discordia song with Glen Drover, it will be on his upcoming solo  album  8)

Todd featured on two songs from upcoming limited release from Rat Pack records titled Deep Cuts and Rarities. Looks like a handful of cool items are included in this set.

Here is the article on it which features Todd doing Barracuda from Heart with Craig Blackwell, not sure who Craig is (I'm assuming he is guitarist), doesn't say who plays drums on it. This version kicks ass, Todd sounds good on pretty much everything he sings on.

Here is Todd handling the vocals on Michael Angelo Batio's cover of Rush What You're Doing. This one kicks ass too. Batio can fuckin play and Todd sounds great here too.  8)

Wow, Todd's version of Barracuda is really, really fucking good. He dips in and out of his falsetto pretty well too.

Todd is awesome on both those, especially Barracuda. Can't wait to hear the new album and hopefully his solo album at some point soon too.
