Kerns said the following:

“Me cosplaying as bass player for @officialalterbridge In reality this is when @markttremonti jumped on stage with SMKC when his band @tremontiofficial played with us. I could never take the place of @bmarshall73 He’s a badass! On the other hand Mark’s bass player that night was none other than @wolfvanhalen Another badass. I’m just happy to get up there and play surrounded by unparalleled talent. I’m a lucky man.

Lots of new music coming. New @officialalterbridge coming next month. A new @officialmyleskennedy solo album in 2021 plus SMKC4. New @toquerocks New @minefieldusa NEW MUSIC! That’s what it’s all about.

I know 2020 has been beyond challenging but 2021 is going to awesome eventually. At least there will be a ton of new music. Once we get the live show thing sorted we’ll be cool.

Hope you are having a restful and happy Sunday! Thinking of y’all”
