    Where I grew up as a kid, we get together once a year.This year was the 4th such meeting. I didnt see anyone I knew so I decided to leave. walking to my car I saw a friend I had not seen since last year. He told me his brother was around the corner with tom. I walked around the corner and there he was standing with Tom Barney, bassist and musical director of steely dan. I walked up to tommy we shook hands then hugged. Yes I did grow up as a kid with tom but have not seen him in 30 years. When I lived in queens n.y. I was also teenage friends with marcus miller. Little did I know him and tom were buddys at that time and both lived in Rochdale Village area. But getting back to tom, it was such a pleasure to see him and spend some time with him. Tom and I come from a poor neighborhood and it nice to see he did not forget were he came from. And I just want to say is that he stayed all day and just mingled with all the people that were there.

    Wow! That's cool. I love his approach to "Peg". Stuck to the original, but added a little more thumb texture.
  4. That's cool man. I was teenage friends with the late Gary Thain, of Uriah Heep.
