The Forgotten Beatle (replaced Ringo)

No, it's not Bernard Purdie.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Modern pop music makes me cringe, if its like the kind being played in the gyms and even force-fed into public shopping venues.

Re: David Garibaldi Soul Train Appearance

How's he doing since the train accident around a year ago?
I assume he's back up full speed now, hopefully?

I think the bass player was more injured, hopefully he's also OK.

Re: I'm feeling "shocks" on my left wrist after playing for a bit. Should I be worried?

Maybe consider a lighter stick?

Re: Passing On Experience
