Re: I'm going to see Billy Cobham live!

Yeah man, with the Walkman, I could listen to it while mowing lawns (which is how I earned the money to buy the Walkman, BTW). Portable tunes! Amazing technology, eh? ;-)

Re: This is a great interview with Jeff Pocaro

Re: This is a great interview with Jeff Pocaro

This cat couldn't not groove, even in the way he conversed. Crap, you listen to him talk and he makes that feel good.

Love this video and wish we still had him.
