    RIP Alan White

    This is very sad news indeed....a big inspiration.
    One of 16 times I saw YES, I was present at the Dallas concert (1972) where Alan made his debut.
    I had no idea it was his first night until I saw...

    How about this ???
    The song starts with an awesome rhythm guitar riff....

    Re: Gig Preparation

    We played the (outdoor) gig Friday night -- the weather was glorious and the crowd was enthusiastic.

    We had a new sound man and a few...

    Re: Very humbling drumming experience???

    Problem resolved......forget the whole thing.
    I've worked hard for so many years at the art and mechanics of drumming.
    I had multiple goals, but none of them were open mic night.

    Re: Gig Preparation

    Fantastic.........we always had 8 or 10 club gigs per year between the private functions we would also play.
    Since the pandemic, we no longer have any clubs/public gigs in venues worth gigging.

    Re: Gig Preparation

    Yes, Tom.....very true.
    We have had rehearsals to keep the chops going, but the atmosphere is now better.
    Like our parents always told us.....it's good to have goals.

    Re: Steve Jordan with The Rolling Stones

    Can't see the Stones existing without Watts.........but that is just me.
    No ZZ without Dusty.
    No Rush without Peart.
    And certainly no Yes without Squire.

    You spend a lot of money and still it sounds so bad.
