Is that Handzus with the hair? Yikes.
That is Handzus, indeed...he of the Kenny G/Michael Bolton Hair Club for Men.
Any more pictures from the event?
You can find some photos here

Too bad there are some big watermarks on them... :(
Holy crap! Handzus *does* look like Kenny G.

That's scarier than Sean Hill having the tendency to look like a combination of Huey Lewis and Henry Rollins.
Now, if Sean Hill only had the body and attitude of Henry Rollins!
