And he's no slouch as a singer either; he and his blood brother Tim Bogert sing up a storm on the BBA album.

Cozy Powell could almost be the British version of Carmine Appice; he came up around the same time and didn't bury you in intricate figures but simply rocked the engine room....One thing I remember reading about Cozy when he passed away was that when he played a session he really brought out the best in the other players. Don Airey relates a story about a session he was playing for an upcoming CD by Colin Blunstone; the session was unfocused and meandering....Cozy was called in and everything was suddenly back on course. I believe it was the last session he played on before his death.....he loved fast cars and was, by all accounts, an excellent driver.....yet a blown tire on a wet road can take the best man...

I remember Todd relating the drum duel between Carmine and Dom Famularo at the Lissa Wales benefit....Todd thought Carmine would wipe the floor with Dom...boy, did he get a surprise! Dom is the guy who can handle anything from 4/4 to the most twisted progressive time signatures....

Over The Rainbow are playing the Stone Pony in Asbury Park this summer...might have to take a road trip!

Captain- The BBA stuff was really great.
DO hit the Pony for OTR but be careful where you park or just train it down, and be sure to get some taffy while there.
