    Tony is a legend, and I was in awe of him. Look up his bio and see who and what he's played on....it's remarkable.
    He was a little rough around the edges....a real Boston guy....but very supportive musically.....wasn't going to try to "show you up".....
    He was and still is a busy guy. I knew about him with King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, Asia... you can hear that playing style come through, to me it's like no one else, and a big part of what made those albums. The latest version of King Crimson is actually playing very close to me, next week I believe. Some of that might even be too whack for me.

      "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
      "No...I didn't."
      "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

          Me too. I love it.

          I have ave no desire to get a new one. This tv looks fine to me.

          Except when the Giants are on it.

            50 cents to JP on the use of simile.

                Thatís cool. I love Tony Levin (being a bass player and all). That beats playing with and getting silently admonished by Pete Seeger, Iíd say.

                And no, I was not admonished for my playing.

                  You didn't plug in, when you were with him? That gets him riled - like an old man, bringing soup back to the deli.

                          You should get one of those new console tube television sets. They look like a piece of furniture! I hear you can sometimes get ones that have a record player built in!

                            Seriously, got this huge plasma TV several years ago for like $250 when the new LED things were $1200. Difference in picture between them in the store was not noticable.
