Default Re: Stewart Copeland

was this a put on by copeland? there is good and bad in every music genre..thank goodness he had the common sense not to diss de johnette or tony to the interviewer. he would have been laughing stock if he had done that. and his having played with stanley clarke, a negative comment towards his talent would have been stupid. but he's right somewhat about miles.. the album "four and more" recorded live with tony and others was very sloppy playing by miles...missed notes, out of tune...but tony williams and the rest of the band was superb. maybe that's what he was alluding to,not ALL jazz players. it sounds like he has some kind of deep-seated rebellion against jazz going back to his childhood.
