About Merlyn:

Let's start a Tower of Power or Earth, Wind & Fire tribute/cover band.
Let's write a new song that sounds as if those bands were into Pink Floyd.
What if The Funky Meters jammed with King Crimson, back in the early 70s?
-- Let's do some of THAT.

I try to Listen first, then Feel for The Groove, then Try Something and Listen More
