john mclaughlin - are you the one?

I know there are McLauglin haters out there but I love him. Saw Birds of Fire show in Central Park as a lad. Love Shakti. Bitches Brew. He plays too fast for Grumpy, I can read it now - the apotheosis of all that is wrong in the modern world.

i dig this; JMac, Trilok and Kai; please, i'm not a JMac hater, despite remarks i made in the past; i love him to death; his playing on Miles' "Jack Johnson", on Coryell's "Spaces"... i saw Mahavishnu Orchestra for the first time at Funky Quarters in San Diego; will never forget getting there early and watching their sound check, just JM and Billy Cobham jammin'; it was mind-blowing; ditto Shakti at the Santa Monica Civic, on their first tour, with L.Shankar and Zakir Hussain-talk about a band; i could go on...

good word, apotheosis; personally, i put football at the top of the list of what's wrong with our fallen world, followed by talk radio and Fox News; just about everything on tv, actually, except the Tennis Channel and the Food Network.
