    As an added trivia note...'ol Abe has a son named Abe Jr. who is an awesome drummer.
    You may have caught Abe Jr. playing drums with Paul McCartney on the "Back in the U.S." CD/DVD.

    He had (or still has?) a kick-ass band with Mike Landau...called the Raging Honkies. An old friend of mine distributes his records in Germany: http://www.ulftone.com

    Yeah, he's a very good and animated drummer. Makes all kinds of faces just like his dad and bounces around on his throne like Bernard Purdie! I saw him with a country act not too long ago so he's definitely working...a lot!!

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    Chocolate Genius isn't something mentioned every day. That's a unique record they have out.

    I've seen ALJ with Sir Paul. I guess it does get passed from the father to the son.
