Default Return to Forever

I got lucky and scored front row centers to their show at the Gibson Amphitheater... Without a scalper! Is anyone going to one of their shows?

The first video has my all time favorite drum beat about 45 seconds in, too bad you can barely hear the ghost notes.

They're both on Romantic Warrior, it's an incredible album.

Here's the promo video for the tour. The fan talk is a bit over the top at the beginning IMO but the reh. clip in the studio is pretty smoking. Interviews are after the first clip followed by drummers comments from NAMM 08. And yes Lenny is playing the new Epoch ride in the studio reh. clip :

Congrats, those are great seats for a show that's been on sale for a few hours. I got some Radiohead tickets at the Hollybowl on ticketmaster in N2 (third to last section) the second they went on sale. Within 30 minutes over 500 tickets were on eBay from scalpers. And what's insane is that the presale was locked up by scalpers too so I had to wait until the public onsale to get bad seats.

I just down loaded that album and its tight. I don't know how I could have missed this album, especially since I have Chick Corea's Return to Forever album on vinyl. (THe one with 500 miles high)

Just got back from seeing RTF. What a show. 2 sets. First set was electric, second set - acoustic. Encores (almost a 3rd set) electric. Simply an amazing night. If they are coming to your town, go see them. It will change your life.

Just like The Police, they end the tour in NYC . . . :)

I got first row in the balcony for the NYC show, first night; they added a second. I don't know where it hangs over; but that's my favorite place.

Lenny's in July Modern Drummer. He talks about dealing with aging and playing. He's got some custom made $80,000 kit from what I've heard.
