Happy 76th Birthday George Clinton!! 


​He literally fused science fiction, advanced lyrical metaphor, street culture with extremely high level music theory. In my mind..he was and is a real life comic book hero! Happy Birthday GEORGE CLINTON!!


Steely Dan Obsession

#NP There is such thing as a perfect song. If I had one song that I could play all night..”Peg”. The best 3:58 minutes. I have been obsessed with this song since it’s 1977 release. The one sided  panned flanger on keys are priceless. One of my biggest wishes is to hear the remaining parts of the song faded out with the epic #jaygraydon solo. The song and groove lock perfectly. Still waiting to meet “Peg” tho. #np #steelydan #michealmcdonald #chuckrainey #rickmarotta #stevekhan #tomscott #paulgriffin #dongrolnick #peg #musicmonday #unique74

OG..

Its been difficult coming to grips in writing this and his departure. Earlier this year, I lost a dear friend, leader, mentor…my OG. There are a handful of people that I can sit down for hours talking about music and it’s spiritual essence. We would laugh and joke for hours while I would always walk away enlightened. His musical contribution runs deep in the DNA of great artists and iconic recordings. I miss my friend..but somehow I know he is always with me. Always remembering and celebrating Mr KEG JOHNSON Jr..

Rest Well Mr ALLEN TOUSSAINT..

This man was the backbone of Popular music who carried the torch of Ragtime influence throughout his compositions while being a major influence in Funk. Rest well Mr Allen Toussaint..#allentoussaint #NewOrleans #icon
