He wore the craziest pair of knee-high silver boots on the Beat the System tour.

He was a fantastic member who could deliver both musically and vocally. He seems to be a bit of a recluse. I haven’t been able to find much on him between This Means War and CP time. He commonly said on tour and told me he worked in the Business field. He likes his privacy, I think. I wish he would return for the 50th-anniversary concert, but I’m not holding my breath.

He has worked in the hearing health field previously. He might have been an audiologist. When he left Classic Petra, rumor has it he was done done and moved to Texas.

I know he's a neat freak. There was a Back to the Street behind the scenes video that made the rounds some time ago (I think it was recorded by a friend of John Schlitt), and there's a shot showing the room Schlitt shared with Kelly. John's side looked like a bachelor pad, and Mark's side looked like something you would see on the cover of a catalog. I've also heard (I think it was from John Slick who occasionally posts here) that Mark's bass never traveled in a proper guitar case but in the cardboard box he bought it in which he somehow managed to keep in prestine condition.
