ROAD TO JACKSONVILLE - France Interview RUSTY BURNS (Point Blank) September 2014 Kirk
is an awesome bassists and undoubtedly one of the best we have been blessed to work with. He and Greg came in to the band at the same time, shortly after Phillip's passing. He is extremely musical and a master of his instrument, so I know Phillip would be as pleased as we are that he is a member of Point Blank. The building of the musical relationships between Kirk, Mike, and Greg seemed to be an automatic fit. Whenever you put high calibre accomplished musicians together the music
becomes the glue that bonds them together and Kirk's ability to interpret and express the feel of the music has made every transition very natural and easy.
