No Axe Factor This Week

Hey all, sorry for the late post. There will be no episode of The Axe Factor this week. I was under the weather since Saturday and was still recovering through our normal record time. 

The good news is I'm feeling much better now and should be good to record EBC and I'll be back with Lorin next week for a new TAF. Sorry again for the late notice and we'll see you next week.

Stay sharp,

Brent
