A couple of years ago, my brother received an email from Sally Chrane Hobbs who thought she was related to us, In fact, she is and so are you. My G grandmother and Sallie's Ggrandfather were brother and sister and we think that you are the descendant of one of the other siblings who came over from Denmark. Dors this sound right to you? I live in Mission Viejo and have a cousin who lives in San Diego and I sometimes drive down to see her. Do you still play in public? I would love to come and hear you play one evening. PS You look like my cousin Obed who grew up in Omaha. From a distant cousin, Linda
Hey, its paull from Apple. Just checking out your site and stopping by to say hi!
Hi, Max. Just wanted to say hi, and let you know that you were a hero of mine since the 1970s, when I first heard you play bass with the L.A. Express. Your latest album sounds great. Take Care. Mike Jewels, Queens, N.Y.
😉 Hi Max 🙂 Feels so good to be visiting your website again! Carlene passed away suddenly in 2013, so I'm no longer at the resort in Cambria. It's been a rough year. I'm finally back performing, playing bass guitar with the same group of excellent players I've been with for 30 yrs. now. I just hit #60. Playing music steady now; concerts, clubs and theater venues on the coast and in the San Joaquin Valley. Both Carlene and I loved Private Reserve and enjoyed listening to your CDs on our day trips up and down the Cal. Coast, You're my favorite bassist forever. Started back in the 70's. You're looking great Max. Love the tone on the 6 string both live and studio. Please tell your lovely wife I said hello and wish both of you my BEST. You've inspired me for 40 yrs. I visit your site often now. I must say your awesome music and Private Reserve inspired and motivated me to get through my darkest days. Your unique sound really got my endorphins pumping again. I thank God for your talent and the gift of awesome music you've written shared with the world. My Best, to you and yours!
Happy Birtday Max to the Best of the Best! Gary 😀
Hey, Max, thought I'd drop a quick note and say Happy Birthday to the best damn bass player this side of the moon. Hope all is going well with you and whomever (you know who I'm talking about, right Teri?). Hope you had a good day and I'll give you a call soon. Your favorite ex-student Mike

I am still in Burbank and finally retired...but will never forget you.
You truly are an inspiration! Awesome chops.
Just met Dan Carlin (in Florida keys). Pleased to get update from him on some of your musical activities. I used to listen to sessions without knowing you were in the band (like Terry Gibbs Dream band; finally met you when I was working as a jazz dj in Monterey, drove up to Berkeley for the L.A. Express w Joni. Anyway, cheers! David 😉
