Happy Birthday, Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner

A belated happy birthday to ApologetiX drummer and recording engineer Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner, whose birthday fell on Good Friday this year.
Last year, Jimmy hit a couple significant milestones with ApologetiX. October marked his 15th anniversary as our drummer. December saw the release of our 50th CD with Jimmy on it!
Although we haven't been touring in recent years, Jimmy has played 709 concerts with us in 49 states (unfortunately, we haven't been back to Hawaii since 2002, or he'd have that one, too).
Jimmy and his wife, Eve, are still hard at work on their new recording studio and expect to have it finished soon. In the meantime, he continues to engineer our recordings. Yesterday, in fact, he recorded J. singing vocals for two new parodies, one of which will appear on our next single.
Thanks for everything, Jimmy!
