    Right on. You are one of my favorites! Was floored when I noticed this forum.

    I have to ask. (probably been asked a million times)

    What was it like working with Perry?
    Stephen Perkins is the BEST drummer. (So underrated, and you don't hear a buzz about him that you'd expect)

    Thanks for your time!

    they are both righteous people. I still play w/perk in his band, banyan and together w/him and peter distefano (also of porno for pyros) in hellride.

    I learned much from perry and was very influenced by him to do my opera, "contemplating the engine room."

    I consider myself really lucky to get learn from all these cats - much respect to them.

    perry told me, "you've got to keep the child's eye" - not meaning to be naive but to keep some sense of wonder in your life.
