A rather terrible Rush 2112 painting I did in Paint. The picture was off a shirt I used to have. I made it 3 years ago and had it on my computer ever since. I love it

I remember an interview he did with Ed Bradley on 60 minutes. He talked frankly about his preference for working with black drummers. He described the difference. He gave an example of the beat exactly on time (his perception of white drummers), and time in the pocket (his perception of the way black drummers play).

Yeah, he was pretty quirky, and did see himself as a custodian of the Black music heritage/legacy with a responsibility to it.

A great story told by Wayne Shorter is about how Miles called him when he heard Wayne was hooking up with Joe Zawinul to form Weather Report, and said to him, in that classic hoarse whisper ". Dont you go give it away now. Dont give em everything"

Me, a bad hair day and some Photo Booth fun. In retrospect, my hairdo combined with the outline of a doorway makes it look like a character from Final Fantasy...

HaHa! Finally I have some answers to questions I ve wondered!

I guess I just lost a little bit of my curiosity though...: (

As for now mine is quite boring, a little guy named Brendan Small: lover of cinematography, and the genius behind shows like Home Movies and Metalocalypse, and some others that I cant seem to remember....

But G.D.'s are probably the most interesting 8------> ~o ~o O=)

mines just a picture of the TAMA warlord snare lifted straight off their website which was originally my desktop but i can't use it for that now because i now have a widescreen monitor.

i really should just get it changed.

Well i think guntersdad's avatars may be linked to the writing i saw in his signiature which was something about supporting local cheerleaders.
