Re: Brian "brain" Mantia
I met Brain will before he became a name. A really cool guy. Sadly, we've lost touched after I moved out of the Bay Area, and then he joined the big leagues with Primus.
You should find a copy of his 1st band "The Limbomanics." His grooves are awesome. He was mixing up funk/r&b/hiphop with rock long before most everyone else.
The guy was destined to be famous one day, but I admit I never thought it would be because he joined Guns and Roses. LOL.
