    Hey Pete,
    Al Di Meola attended my high school (a little after my time) -- a little before my time was Bob Gaudio (composer and singer for the Four Seasons). A number of one hit wonder bands came out of my high school as well (The Knickerbockers, etc.). Remarkably NONE of that musical talent seems to have made it into me.....

    Got an Amazon Echo in the car, it’s great just driving along listening to literally anything that springs to mind. There are a couple of decent radio stations (Absolute Classic Rock and Planet Rock) but you can’t rely on them to play exactly what you are on the mood for, especially as I am in a Viking era music phase at the moment, lol (Wardruna, Heilung, and Danheim in particular). Also have got into what seems to be known as ambient post rock (no idea where they get the genre names from), there’s an outfit called Stelladrone who conjure up some incredible, peaceful, space inspired meditative stuff. (All of the above available on YouTube for the curious)

    Man, the concert lists form Pete, Bruno and Chris... like a rock and roll hall of fame honor roll. Truly amazing. I won't even bother with my show list.

    I can add this... Apple CarPlay is awesome. Few things are more fun than: Siri, play music by <fill in the blank>. or Siri, play classic rock from the 70's...
