Skunk Works

We had a little Steely Dan playing on the PubSub office jukebox today, and as we listened to Jeff “Skunk” Baxter’s outstanding guitar playing on “Reelin’ In The Years“, I had occasion to reflect on what an extraordinary fellow he is. Not only is he one of the most capable rock musicians of the last several decades, always in demand as a producer and sideman (and one of my favorite soloists), but he is also a self-taught defense-technology expert, who has become a widely respected D.O.D. consultant on such matters as counterterrorism tactics and missile defense.

If you’d like to find out more about this remarkable autodidact, Baxter’s Wikipedia entry is worth a peek.
