Carol Kaye! Exactly! Thanks for looking that up, airdog. No, I've wanted to get one of those boxes for the longest time, but haven't yet. Do you have The Doors box? Wow, it's amazing.

true dat, nana! how many guitarists are still copying George's stuff? I found the playfulness, economy, the sheer originality, and the unimaginable number of "hooks" in Hari's fretwork to be uniquely unrivaled. Were there greater virtuosos? Sure? And so what?

Airdog: No way, man. You're not crazy at all. Slightly mad, psychotic, off your rocker, and unstable...but definitely not crazy! (Just kidding.)

Yeah, man. You're not alone. I've always thought of The Doors as a blues band as well. You can definitely tell by listening to the L.A. Woman album that they were headed in that direction before Jimbo kicked it. If they had made another album with Mr. Mojo after LA Woman, I think it would have been pretty much all blues.

Animal of The Muppets...yes! Although he and Moonie really go hand in hand, since Animal was modeled after Keith.

Although I hate to admit it, I have to agree with Tommy Lee. He is a great drummer.
