I think all club DJs should use human drummers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am

i like that track but i think it's a shame when an excellent drummer as Sly Dunbar chooses programed electronics instead.
Avatar 10:47am

all LPs must be spun continuously by humans as well.

Jagger might be a dick sometimes, but he often doesn't get the respect he should as a vocalist. He shines on this new album.

Jagger let's face it - only Iggy comes close to challenging him as GreatestFrontmanEver (...Bowie in there close). Our great androgynous Shaman. A great singer, obviously. MuddyWaters: 'They took my Music - but they gave me my Name.' ...Wow!...Being MickJagger certainly not a job I could even understand - but being - ThuhBadBoyz - whatever the Stones do , it's like they get a pass - like it's their job to do it...Except: being boring. Don't do that...

Steve, great to hear you filling-in and it is not for Jeffrey.

Quick note on drummers, all these talented musicians that play all the instruments on their records would do well to consider having a drummer as the only outside player. For balance and quality.

i think it was. i forget now but the way it was used it's barely recognisable, and they were given permission up front. then some publishing asshole decided they'd used "too much" of it or something.
100% unethical and it screwed the verve forever.

Did you manged to see Mucha's Slav Epic exhibition at the National Gallery?
Clïff in Prägůe:

I actually had this trippy dream the other night where I was flying over Prague and went to the Charles Bridge, and the statue of St. Wenceslas spoke to me and said, you're welcome back whenever you like as soon as you are able!

And yes! I did get to see the Slav Epic, it is monumental, I had to spend over 2 hours there wandering around to take it all in. Now I'm trying to figure out how to recreate it in VR (my current hobby)

Bix was an inspiration behind Ry Cooder's 1978 Jazz album, too.

Heh, and "Davenport Blues" was on Cooder's record!
