I was always a Clive Bunker fan (still am) and was really disheartened to hear that he wasn't going to be a member of JT any longer. There was this new guy, Barriemore Barlow, totally unknown to me. When "Thick" was released, I was bowled over at how tight this new guy was. When I saw him play live on that tour the first time, I was very impressed at how well he played and the good time he seemed to be having while doing so. Just a great player!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!
