Just checked out that Buddy Rich rant and it’s hilarious alright [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] I’ve noticed Mike Watt uses the expression "blow a clam" on his tour diaries and now I see Buddy says "clam" too in the same kinda context. Never heard it b4 though (english isn’t my native language), but I figure it means screwing up yr playing in some way. If someone knows more precisely what it means, please tell me, I’m curious.
