Great story about Herbie and what he bought with WM $$

He mentions this in his book. It's really a great read. The better story is how Donald Byrd told him how to negotiate and keep his publishing when he signed his album deal. That's why he got that big check in the first place......

Yeah it's a "well-known" story that he bought the Cobra with the dough. I'm also pretty sure the tune "King Cobra" on his second album is named after the car and not the snake...


I wonder what other cars HH has? On his old Korg publicity shot, there's a Ferrari (looks like possibly a 550 Maranello Spyder...).

In the last few years he's been tooling around in a Smart Car. He loves being able to fit into tight LA parking spots...




He is and always will be an engineer.
