Re: Richie Hayward
I attended the benefit held for Richie in Thousand Oaks, CA a few months back. The turnout was great, sold out I think. There were so many performers that it went up till 2 AM I think. The last thing I saw was a group with Jimmy Vivino from the Conan show doing an all star band with Gregg Bissonette and Simon Phillips on double drums! It was great.
Jackson Brown also performed and so many others.
As long as we're on the subject of Richie, I love his playing on the 1st Robert Plant solo record "Pictures at Eleven". I think it's a Richie Hayward record a lot of people aren't aware of. Such tasty drumming.
