I sat in for a set with Little Feat in '78...it was probably one of my first performances. Before I went on someone in the band said, "You'd better be able to play that thing!"

I got thrown a solo - bombed horribly, and pretended to play the rest of the set....then I got really drunk and threw up in their tour bus.

Not a great start to a musical career....

Sting played too much sax on the "Ghost in the Machine" album. Not that he did a bad job, but he should have let Andy Summers' guitar play in those spots.

Dollar Brand (as Abdullah Ibrahim was then known) played soprano saxophone in addition to piano:


Horace Silver played tenor saxophone and piano on gigs when he was at high school. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horace_Silver

I love Abdullah's soprano playing but I didn't know he ever recorded with those guys. Getting to meet him and take a photo via a mutual friend was so incredible.

What? No Bill Clinton? You find a link.
edit- someone mentioned that everyone knows Bill C plays sax. Good point. I guess I forgot the titel of the thread is "I didn't know they played..."


I really liked the Edgar Winter piece. Commodores too.
