I loved this line:

 

"Jaco Pastorius (bass): Look him up on YouTube. Pastorius is the only musician in history who could play a nine-minute bass solo that didn't feel like something prohibited by the Geneva Conventions."

 

LOL!! :thu:

Instrumentation is meaningless - a song either stands on its own merit, or it requires bells and whistles to cover its lack of adequacy, much less quality. - kanker

I stayed with them up until their chosen "drummer" was Tito Puente. Bzzzt, thank you for playing.

 

Ah, no love for Tito? I thought claiming that Bonham and Moon "split the vote" was pretty clever, myself.

 

But maybe I've been hanging with too many Latin cats lately, I don't know... ;)

Make my funk the P-funk.

I wants to get funked up.

Tons of love for Tito. No love for people who write music articles without knowing the difference between a drummer and a percussionist.

 

Ah, yes, well sure. Although most of the percussionists I know can sit behind a trap kit and lay down a groove. They may not admit to it, but... :D
