We get into the way back machine with Peabody for this tune.  Heard this on CKUA (great station in Alberta).  Never heard of him or the song before.  Great groove though.  Unfortunately, John passed away in 2009.  Great legacy, and he played with Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Phil Collins and many more.  As an aside, to lazy to do the trivia thing tonight.

No posts on the weekend, company coming and it is Canada Day long weekend.  We celebrate the creation of the greatest country on Earth on July 1.
