    Does anyone know what's going on with Hadrien? What's he up to? And any news on the release of the second album?

    I've seen a bunch of videos with him and Eric Moore, possibly the best new jazz/rock drummers around. It doesn't seem like he has done anything high profile since he got fired from Mclaughlin's band.

    I'm not in america unfortunately :( just really itching to hear his new material with Eric Moore on drums and Ronald Bruner etc etc, but I don't know what's up to musically because he never updates his website, he doesn't have a active twitter or Facebook page..??

    just found this video of him playing bass for some female singer in a music video, its actually quite cool, and hes got some nice melodic playing in the intro and bits... but hes playing a pick in some of it! :O haha

    The most talented bassist in the world got fired

    Or maybe because he plays faster than John McLaughlin?

    I would certainly hope not. If he played faster that John, he wasn't playing the song correctly.

    As far as i know, he's keeping himself even busier than when he was in France, since his relocation to L.A., touring with Dean Brown and doing the session with people in L.A.

    about his incident of 'getting fired by JM', there's the interview of Hadrien saying that he was bit immature and understand why he was let go from the group. I find his way of playing more tasteful then before, he just keeps getting better and better....scary IMO...

    I've heard that JM is a tough person too. Anyone with a little bit of ego will have problem with Hadrien stunning ability.

    He is already so so talented. With his experience, he will become better and better.

    It's ego to give someone a good job and want them to do the job the way you want them to do it? John McLaughlin doesn't take a back seat to anyone in abilities. That's just patently absurd. He's been legendary for it for 40 years now. And if he were jealous of Hadrien, he wouldn't have hired him in the first place. Nobody would know Hadrien if not for John McLaughlin. Hadrien's awesome but get a little perspective here.

    Here's a tip for you and anyone else that do not seem to understand what is expected of you when you get hired for a gig. If the person that hires you tells you to turn down, turn up, turn off, that's what you do. If you can't follow directions, people won't hire you no matter how "stunning" your abilities may be.
