    I heard it was a plane but in any case its deffinetly true and he is no longer with us. It was a while ago (10 years or so I think).


    I cant say enough about his playing on that album and how it infulenced me.Amazing stuff.

    It's true.He was on tour with Reba McIntyre when it happen he did some real nice stuff for Thomas until his unfortunante demise.However Rodney "Skeets"Curtis of the "Funkadelic Alumni also did some great stuff on the "Aliens ate My Buick" album

    Actually the only track that has Skeet is "May the cube be with you" and thats a very different session its from when T.D was on Goerge's "Some of my best Jokes are friends" Album .Dolby walked away with a E.P., "Dolby's Cube", wich is D.Chambers ,Brecker bros, Goerge.It was released a couple of years before the Aliens album(on vinal) came out which didnt have it on it.Terry's on the Whole Album.It was added as a mutch thankful Filler to the CD release.




    Do you know if it was helicopter or plane?
