Hm m m m.

Let's not forget Mandrill.

Then

and

Now

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

Larry Graham's Graham Central Station, Kool & the Gang (early days), Nile Rodgers, with or without Chic, Sister Sledge...

And that makes me remember a band... Indeep, I think they only recorded a couple of songs more... and Imagination... and an awesome band called Delegation...

I have (or had) all those vinyls... almost are those old 12" or maxi-singles as we used to say... Ha! And Junior!

Cool basslines by Mandrill. And +1 on Boxboy's EWF!

You were right with your very first comment:
