He has also been working on a project of original music as he tours the world paying tribute to elvis presley.
I"ve got a good friend of mine, his name is brad mitchell, and me and him write songs together, we tour, we just produced a show, we created a band called "the backups" , it's pretty unique band because we just back it up, there's no lead vocal, it's funny, so i'm always working on things, i'm getting some stuff copyrighted and we will see where the road takes us.
