They still continue to tour today and release new music through their own independent record label.

Ace has been playing guitar for over 30 years and has been successful in the industry for 20 of them! He has earned a reputation as being one of the top guitarists in the rock world as well as an author, teacher, session player and musical entrepreneur. He has also been producing records professionally since 2001 and has worked on records with many European bands with varied musical styles.
