    I’ll be interested to hear Stephen with the MTQ. In my mind, I hear him singing those old-time, classic songs with the Echoes. Not that his new group doesn’t sing the classics,they just do a lot more “modern sounding” songs than his former group. But I have a feeling he will fit right in. Just like Gus has done with Tribute….
