RE: new mp3 loopping

  I haven't heard the track yet, so I can't comment on that directly. But
Reverend Bob does bring up an interesting point.  It seems to be mixed 
musicians- some feel a drum machine really adds to a live performance,
others think it is distracting and superfluous. Personally, I don't
particularly like them used live- I am more likely to bring a hand
percussionist along on those types of gigs, or play solo and force some
creative rearranging. Any other opinions? How about from an audience
member's point of view?
