During his tenure with The New Mexx Band he met a singer whom he had listened to when he was a teenager Rosie Hamlin of Rosie and The Originals. Rosie lived in Los Lunas for a few years and moved back to California recently. He did a few gigs with Rosie and the band and they asked Gene to join the group, because as luck would have it again, the bass player was leaving the group. Gene has come around full circle it seems. Only now he’s playing with a real rock n roll hall of fame star Rosie and The Originals.
