    Dont forget his brother Phil

    I was with the same agent way back and got to see alot of these guys and party hard with them as well but Tommy has always had some amazing chops.

    Substance abuse nearly cost them both, but i dont know many that it didnt way back then.

    Yes rock came from the blues. Growing up in the Black Community (I'm not Black, I'm a Bundini) You started with the Blues, then you progress to gospel, funk, jazz whichever path you choose. Blues are the roots, the rest are the fruits.

    BTW Black Mountain Samma Do you mean Tai Chi? characters are huge,limits,fist? and Hsing I? I can read and write Chinese but cant speak it.
    I grew up with Wing Chun Chuan. (Poetic Spring Fist) I studied Hsing I and ShotoKan Karate in Japan too.

    You have to learn all this stuff to become a Bundini. Sore dewa, Watashi wa tsukarata. Nipongo zen zen wasuremashi-ta. ato de neh.

    I think the all night practice sessions are a little uncalled for. At some point you just get tired and start forgetting what you're doing. To me anyway. The thing that works best is to sit down with a specific goal in mind and try to accomplish that. Just sitting there playing stuff you know is fine but thats really just noodling. And I do believe that practicing other genres is very helpful, sure blues is an expansive genre and there are many ways to play blues but grabbing a technique or a lick from metal, jazz, r&b, country, classical and figuring out how to use it for blues adds depth to your playing and it makes you think, and that goes back to my original point of sitting down to practice with a goal in mind. For example, trying to apply sweep picking, economy picking, circle picking, pinch harmonics, banjo rolls, palm mutes, chugging, or string pops to your blues playing.

    Hooi-vey look at this mashugana looking macher! He's no nebish this guy.
    The two Bundinis in the avitar are Hasidic too
    Actually all Bundinis are Muslims, because muslim in arabic means to submit, or one who submits to God (check it Z1, am I right?) and we submit to God everyday, all Bundinis do this, it's like rule #1.

    Hey Highway One, if you ever leave the woodshed and play out, you're going to be a beast.

    Personally, The Old Lady! but if that's not an option....get some jam tracts off the net and create your own solos to your old favorites...
