    Lyrics you just got wrong

    I always thought the the part of Clapton's "Cocaine" where he sings She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie, Cocaine. was She's so high, she's so high, she's so high That's OK.

    Weckl drum hang

    I saw him back in 1992 with Chick Corea on the "Beneath the Mask Tour", awesome performance from all the band members. Couldn't tell if he had the parachute pants but he was definitely rockin' the mullet.

    I remember reading an interview where Buddy saw Joe Morello or Jim Chapin (can't remember exactly) playing fast triplet rolls with their left hand. About a year later they saw that BR had incorporated this technique into his performances and after the show they asked "Hey Buddy have you been...

    Negative effects of positive feedback.
