He mentioned that he keeps hand warmers in his pockets during a show because his hands get cold – so if you see him reaching in his pocket during the show, that’s what he’s doing. He said, “I don’t want you thinking I’m reaching for anything else.”

The sax he was playing is his very first sax – he used it at Franklin High School.

He said about the sax that was raffled: The sax is worth a few thousand dollars, and if you don’t want it, you can sell it on eBay. I won’t even have enough time to wipe my spit off, so it might actually sell for a pretty penny.”
