Mike is a great entertainer as well as a fantastic musician. The others are great musicians in their own right, just crappy entertainers.
ya, watching videos i see what you mean, they could move a little more. Some parts they play are just so nuts that they probably couldn't walk much while playing them, but short of Mike, they do stand arund a lot (i don't think Jordan has a choice).
Look at my setup! - - - - -
