    just heard a sweet recording of a live version of "Knock yourself out" by TOP. I have always beena huge Rocco fan so ill recommend this song based on the amazing tenor sax solo. Those guys can really lay it down! The Altissimo in that song puts most trumpet players to shame.

    Heh that came out wrong. I meant that i always tell people how good the bass is in TOP hits so i decided to brag on someone else in the band.

    I just got to see Rocco a couple of weeks ago right here in Hawaii when a friend arranged a fundraiser concert for his medical expenses. He got up on stage and blew a few tunes. He's still go it!

    Yeah Lenny Picketts solo on knock yourself out is 2nd to none. Beleive it or not he was bassically a walkon for top, they thought he was too young for the band when they first heard him standing outside their rehearsal blowing away trying to get a spot with top. :D
