In 1977 my band had the opportunity to open for him at the Agora theater in Colombus, Ohio for a two night show. I first met him while my bandmates and I were playing billiards during his sound check.
Mr. Marino came strolling into the billiard room while wirelessly playing his SG and played pool with us.
Needless to say I was overjoyed to be able to hang out with my idol for two nights.
It was a dream come true for me at the time. And he is a super nice guy. Check out their 4th album and also their Mahogany Rush Live album. Great stuff.

Wow what a great story and a cool memory, good for you!! I have been listening to Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush all yesterday and I will continue today - I just can't believe I have never heard of him. Must be one of the most underrated guitarist ever. It reminds me of the feeling I had when I discovered Robin Trower, another Hendrix disciple who is underrated. Absolute joy.

It is early days as I haven't had time to really get into it, but it seems to me that on a technical ability, what he did in the 70ies was up there with the best! Blues, jazz, rock, he can do it all! On one track he does some crazy tapping... :J
