It was a sad, sad Christmas. JB literally rearranged the DNA of music. As
a bass player, his grooves are probably my biggest influence, at least, it
was only after spending a few years shedding on his grooves that I started
getting called back to gigs.
"Dig me now, don't worry about later.
Dig the dance I used to do, it's called the mashed potato."
We've got a pretty big New Years Eve gig, and we're resolved to make it
extra funky. Somebody's gotta take it to the bridge...
