I saw Paul McCartney in St. Paul last night. What a great show.
Does anyone in America have a better job than Abraham Laboriel Jr.? He's what, 30 years old?
What do you do?
I play Beatles songs with Paul McCartney.
It was also my 12 year old stepson's first rock concert. He had a ball. So did I.

That is scary, what does the young Mr. Laboriel play? Funny to see it described as a job.
Amazing that a 12 year old gets the vibe. Lucky young man, great choice for the first, Dad.

Abe Laboriel Jr. plays the drums (and from the footage i've seen looks like he's having a ball.) his dad is also an incredible incredible bass player.

Mark (my 12 year old) loves the Beatles and Who, and really likes AC/DC (we can't be in agreement on everything). For Rachel (15 year old step daughter) it was her 3rd concert. The first was Weird Al Yankovic. The second was Taste of Chaos (a bunch of bands, some really dreadfully bad). I took her and 5 of her freinds to that last year.
For a good sample of Abe Sr.'s playing, listen to Gary Burton's New Quartet CD.

I played in a band with Rusty Anderson about 10 years ago. The guy is brilliant and had originality coming out of every pore, and there was always something very Beatle-y about his playing, even then. He was also quite influenced by The Who, I might add. I really enjoyed playing with him....decent guy and extremely talented. Too bad the band didn't last.

I think Rusty just oozes tone and musicality. In fact, that whole band fits that description. Not neccesarily technically brilliant ( though they actually are), but extremely musical and always lots of fun to watch and listen to. I was really bummed to hear that they aren't on Pauls' new record because they bring a vibe to the music that makes all the difference.

WEEEE! I just scored some tickets for the show at Glendale Arena on the 23rd!! I can't wait. A life's dream fulfilled! And I'm sure like many of us, the reason I became a musician.
