    RIP Wayne Shorter

    Man was a jazz and jazz fusion giant.

    Love this quote from the NYT obit: “The word ‘jazz,’ to me,” he liked to say, “only means ‘I dare you.’”

    Amazing run; poked into so many corners of the world of music. His Wiki page is well worth a visit...

    RIP. Discovering Weather Report in 5th grade was monumental for me. I was that weird kid listening to fusion when everyone else was listing to Green Day.

    I'm older than you, but yeah, I was that weird kid listening to fusion, going to see Weather Report and Return to Forever and the Dregs (I was lucky enough to live in NYC and have the opportunity), while others were listening to Van Halen and Def Leppard.

    I was that kid in HS too. Saw lots of great music and didnít listen to pretty much any classic rock until college.

    Loved the Dixie Dregs

    The (Dixie) Dregs were a really underrated band. They crushed it. Saw them at the Beacon Theater a couple of times. Also saw Steve Morse open up solo acoustic for the trio (Dimeola, McLaughlin, Delucia) at the Beacon, and he almost stole the show.
