    This just in from the Dudepit:

    "I have just received word that Rocco is scheduled for an estimated 8-hour liver transplant surgery TODAY, Tuesday, July 23, at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time (or 2:30 p.m. California time), assuming that the donor liver is determined to be a compatible match.

    Please say a prayer for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery.

    Sincerely,

    Bob Burchfield, Trustee
    Rocco Prestia Medical Fund "
     
  2. Amen.

    Hey all check out the Dude's Rocco thread under Misc. Good news!
     
  13. BrettAM.....do yourself a favour and check out any Tower of Power, but particularly a song called "What Is Hip"? It is the quintessential 1/16 note groove, and required learning for any serious funkateer. BTW, it took me a week to learn the tune, but about another 5 weeks to be able to play it like Rocco!
