Sy Klopps of the Sy Klopps Blues Band has resurfaced with a new group. Klopps, aka manager Herbie Herbert, has reconnected with former Journey client Neal Schon to form the Trichomes with Bill Kreutzmann (Grateful Dead), guitarist Ralph Woodson (Hugh Masekela, Buddy Miles) and bassist Ira Walker. The group has released the single "Dice With the Universe," and debuted last October at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore.
Other Sy Klopps albums include Berkeley Blues and the limited issue Old Blue Eye Is Back, now out of print.
