    Yes Yes Yes. I went to the Boom Boom Room out here one night in San Francisco on a complete whim over a year ago and Cornell and those guys were phenominal. Cornell plays minimally but has all the chops in the world. I was watching him the entire time and he just had his eyes closed and was playing a lot of lines in the air before he dropped anything down. Very interesting player to watch. He was playing a Modulus Quantum 5 w/ Mesa walkabout and I could not believe how beautiful his tone came through in that place (that's why I remembered what he was playing).

    The drummer is sick and the guitarist is also so so sick. Oh ya that John Cleary's pretty good too!

    There are two sweat dripping fooonky songs on the CD I picked up that night - just boggles the mind.
