NBC: Loud Alert
Sat Oct 27 17:11:31 EDT 2007
To clarify your post, can you confirm that only the first two sentences
were about Coco Montoya and that the rest of your post was about Scott
The comments about the bass player and drummer were particularly
offensive if they were directed towards Coco's regular band (Steve Evans
and Randy Hayes) who are top-notch musicians as noted here previously.
P.S. Just wondering- while Coco may have played loud enough to "peel
paint" at certain points in the show, did he also play "Do What You Want
To Do" with the 'talking guitar' interlude? That song has quite a range
of dynamics from whisper quiet to paint peeling loud (speaking of which,
Albert King certainly knew how to peel the paint from the walls).
