Re: Richard Bailey
Agree, it's odd that he's so low profile after playing the house down on one of the most loved fusion albums. He was only 19 at the time of recording Blow By Blow too. He's worked with some high level artists like Mick Taylor, Brian Eno and Steve Winwood since so I guess he's content to stay under the radar as an elite sideman.
Also, it's a myth that Billy Cobham played on BBB under a non de plume - it was definitely Richard Bailey.
