Oh, for the record- I was about two and a half years away from my start on this big blue marble.

Discovered Hendrix at about age 13-14, and Mitch Mitchell was a big influence on my drumming when I was very early into playing.

Tiny font makes it look like your whispering it so no one will notice...until I come along.

It is incredible the amount of music he put out in such a short time.  I can only imagine where he would have gone with it if he had lived!

He'd be "cuttin heads" with the likes of Vai, Satch, SRV, and EJ.
