i've never even taken a sip of kool-aid in my life.
 ha! i've never even taken a sip of coffee in my life, either! : )
I read it last night. HUGE article, but a worthwhile read. I'm waiting to hear what a few ex-CoS friends think of it, but it is buzz worthy.
I slogged through this thing for about 30 minutes the other night and I wasn't even 3/4 done. It's all Bollocks.
back in the early days of the Elektric Band, Scott Henderson would make fun of Chick Corea and counted his cross 5's as: Sci-en-to-lo-gy, Sci-en-to-lo-gy. hilarious musician humor!
and, of course, Frank Zappa poking fun at "L. Ron Hoover and the Church of Appliantology" on Joe's Garage!
i know nothing about it and have less than zero interest...
