64...too young. Parkinson's is no joke...and I had known that he had been suffering from it in recent years.

Pat was such a creative rock drummer and apparently a really good and nice guy to those that knew him. I was and am a big fan. I’ve got most of the earlier Mr. Big stuff , as well as Pat’s solo record, Odd Man Out (which is terrific). This one hurts a lot.

Somewhere there's a vid of Los Lobotomys doing an instrument switch thing as well.

This takes me back to University in Malmö as I played drums on Smoke on the Water in secondary instrument class, too. Not quite on the level I do these days, though.

Nice way to give the conductor in the back some face time.
Unbeknownst to many, odd time is just short for Odd-Arne time.
