I have just written an entry for Alembic in Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alembic_Inc
Club members might feel like filling in any gaps (in particular, I realised there was nothing here about Rick Turner), making corrections, etc.

I am passing along the link to band members and other friends so that they can better understand the addiction.

Well done Brother David!
One thing: the link to Jimmy Johnson came to a BUNCH of Jimmy Johnsons but none of them was the bass-player.
But I guess that was not your work??
Paul the bad one

I can't take too much credit, as much of the material is derived from the "official" history on the Alembic web site.
Paul TBO, I will do a short Wikipedia entry for Jimmy - unless someone else does it first. There are a few other entries required - figured I'd put the links in first and then backfill the supporting entries.

EXCELLENT writeup. Can I suggest one correction and a couple additions?
I don't think Louis Johnson ever did anything with Rose Royce. I'm fairly certain it was Lequient Jobe playing the Series I with that group. I could be wrong, but that's how I remember it. Louis did play a lot on Quincy Jones albums and for artists Quincy produced, like Michael Jacksons' first two big solo albums (Off The Wall, Thriller) but I don't know if he played an Alembic on any of those.
You could consider noting Prince bassist Brown Mark played a Spoiler on several hits recorded by the Purple One. You might also consider adding that Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers played an Alembic Epic on many of the tracks recorded for the "One Hot Minute" collection.

James - thanks I've made the corrections.
Of course the beauty of Wikipedia is that anyone can add to or change the entry just buy clicking on "Edit this page"

I was initially going to chasten you for assuming the casual reader understood active electronics in your lede section, but you laid it out much better later on.
If I may be so bold, a slightly more detailed explanation of why Series electronics were such a big deal back then written in layman's terms would be the only thing I'd touch.
Good job, man. It's about time somebody did it!
