Please guys...! I understand the importance and also the musical genius of Steve Gadd, and I don't want to take away from him, but I think the points in this thread are already made, and in comments like this from you Spreggy there is clearly a fan of Gadd's speaking, which not everybody necessarily is at the same amount. I mean how can you say the venue Gadd is playing at will be the best gig available that day??

And bigd, please let's not start another you-only-are-allowed-to-critique-someone-if-you-play-as-well argument! That's totally annoying, and irrelevant to a certain degree.
