Keith is my inspiration. Whenever I need some motivation, I listen to Karn Evil 9.
Now that you mentioned Keith, I'm going to put Tarkus in my CD player for the ride into work tomorrow.
Piano self teaching on and off from 2002-2008. Took piano instruction from Nov 2008- Feb 2011. Took guitar instruction Feb 2011-Jul 2013. Can't play either. Living, breathing proof some people aren't cut out to make music.
I have a feeling that he often goes. I seem to recall reading in the past about him being there. So, let me be the first to tell you that he will be at Winter NAMM 2010! (If it turns out that way, you read it here first!)
Unfortunately, Keith suffers from a devastating condition called focal dystonia, which has no real cure and can only be treated in ways that would be of no use to his quest to return to his former level of playing. He actually cancelled the remainder of his performances for the year because of this. It should deeply sadden all of us that a genius like Keith is subjected to such a devastating condition.
