I always get back to England at least once a year.....don't worry.
The album that changed me. I was borrowing Steppenwolf 7 again from the free library as a young teen and I saw it. He looked really cool so tried it out. I'd been listening to my parent's stuff--Glen Campbell, Herb Albert--and had my little-kid stuff like Partridge Family and Monkees, so I wasn't off to a bad start. I borrowed Hermin's Hermits and hated it. Stanley Clarke looked so confident and cool on that cover. He did the horn arrangements, I read. I remember hearing tubular bells and horns as my life-changing journey began. Second later I'm thinking, "Who is this guy? Who's this drummer? Who's this keyboardist? Bass solos? With effects? How many fingers on his right hand are going? Stanley Clarke introduced me to fusion at a young age, as well as introducing me to Tony Williams and Jan Hammer. I owe Stanley Clarke big time. I had a firm grasp when School Days came out. At least I thought I did. His solo blew me through the wall into my brother's room. Stanley Clarke is the bar.
Thanks so much for your story, Matt! I'll keep on doin' it!
We don't have it on the schedule now, but I always get back to the Ramshead.
I have in-boxed you on Face book as well as through your site with the different departments. Hopefully in your busy schedule, you''ll be able to read it. Really looking fwd to seeing you come into town finally in the ATL. Followed you since the mid-70's sir.
Very best wishes,
Atlanta was a great show. The audience was the best!!
I love Australia! I'll get back, I just don't know when.
I am Chairman of a theatre in Malta. This is a new open air theatre in Malta designed by Renzo Piano. We would like to book Stanley Clarke for our theatre. We need to get in touch with the agent who is booking the European Tour in April? Can you help
