watched mostly the songs and some drum solo stuff. The Human Hardware footage is wow! He can go anywhere he wants and it all fits in perfectly. He's not from this world. 60+ years old and still killing it.

Agreed 100% Kurtis...now, if i only dug the music he played!
It gets old for me...still has that math FEEL...why is some of
