RIP Richie Havens.  Learned my first "open E" tunes from him.


Thank you to all of you who braved the weather to pack Hops &Barley's on Saturday.  The JAMO Band really appreciates it, and so did H&B's!  I just put 5 audio files from the gig onto my site at http://www.reverbnation.com/jamodrummer     Let me know what you think.


Also, check out these videos and let me know what you think  (all on Youtube at jamo058):

"Mr. Flynn is probably the most attentive pro drummers I have ever worked with. It's not just intuition or practicing a lot. It's listening and watching the frontman as to where the song is going even if He's never played the song before."  JR Bradfield, The Studio Masters, vol. 3
