    Barrie Barlow 70th Birthday Greetings

    Would have loved to have been at that show with ya Croc! I came to appreciate Clive after Barrie, oddly enough. Two powerhouses, but I think the main difference is what you pointed out, just how tight the new guy was! Great band, great musicians....Im not through with Jethro Tull yet.

    Barrie Barlow 70th Birthday Greetings

    Honestly, not to seem too fickle, but the whole reason I went and checked him out and came to the table already liking him, a bit biased, was because of John Bonhams statement. I was not disappointed one tiny little bit, I cant say I disagree with Bonham. BB is the man!

    Getting to be a bit much

    You got me by 20 years so I dont really have advice, but I do want to say that I admire you very much. I think you've earned the right to do whats best for you at this point. Maybe try to line something up before you give notice? Just want to have you avoid a down time from playing, or more so...

    Sometimes you just catch lightening in a bottle on a recording sesh huh. No way Clyde is hitting that same Funky Drummer breakdown beat the same either. Perhaps the way it was recorded 8, made the toms sound smaller or larger in the mix which perhaps giving an impression of a lower pitch? Like...

    Backwards Fills

    Some guys mix things up by not keeping their toms in descending order. One example of ascending that comes to mind is the Zappa More Trouble Every Day big fill, which I think inspired the In The Air Tonight intro fill, which goes around the toms and then comes back in ascending order, low to...
