Why is this man smiling?
Could it be the off-camera pints of Tyranena beer? The company of drummer-man Mark Haines (pictured)? The unpictured presence of Chicago Blues HOF guitarist Billy Flynn and award-winning pianist Rie Kanehira, or the Kings of Cashbox themselves, Oscar Wilson and Joe Nosek? Or is it that new toy, little red MIM Fender P?
Correct answer: All Of The Above.
