Big Star in LA: was an awesome night of music - as these things typically are. Got to play with a bunch of my musical heroes and meet some new friends as well! I was part of the band/ orchestra (conducted by Van Dyke Parks!!!) that backed up The Posies, Dan Wilson, Jason Falkner, GroupLove, Aimee Mann, The Bangles, Mike Mills, Sarabeth Tucek, Dean Wareham, Jody Stephens, and Luther Russell.
Below is a video that was posted on Facebook: This is me playing drums on the song Kangaroo - w/ Brett Harris singing, Van Dyke Parks conducting, Mike Mills on bass, Mitch Easter, Django Haskins and Chris Stamey on guitars, with Ken Stringfellow and Jody Stephens playing cowbell and gong...here are some quotes that were said about that song/moment of the evening:
Robin Danar-real this was HUGE!! a moment in the room that Youtube can't quite capture. luckily, a bunch of us were there.
Kenneth Stringfellow Dale this is one of the best drum moments I've been witness to in 34 years of playing live music. Kudos to the skies and beyond.
