    I was just woundering what you thought of bands like Nebula, Fu-manchu, Clutch, and sixtywatt shamen? Are you into these bands at all?

    I've only heard _nebula_ (actually, I got to play on a bill w/them) and dig them much. great power trio. some real kicking bass too.

    Those bands are sometimes called "Stoner Rock". I saw Watt with the Black Gang in Santa Ana a little over a year ago and he had a funny between song spiel about that description.

    hi rex,

    sorry but I can't remember what I said then now.

    you know what's one good thing about alzheimers? you're always meeting new people.

    I think you looked at Nels and said something along the lines of "I keep hearing about 'Stoner Rock'. Nels and I remember when it was just called Rock." (my apologies for potential misquoting as my own Alzheimers prevents total recall).

    another good thing about alzheimers is that you're always hearing new things!
