Finally, a word of thanks: Everyone needs inspiration. My brother, Bret, had a party in the late 60's at our parents basement In Minnetonka with a band made up of some friends of his called "Killing Floor." (a great band) The members were Bruce Miller on lead vocals, Scott Bolin on keyboards, Tom Wolfe on guitar, Mike Roberts on bass, and Dinky Roberts on drums. (Sadly, Dinky died in his sleep before graduating from Minnetonka High School) 

                               
Learning tunes off albums note for note, riff for riff is a real gift, and they had it in a big way. Watching them perform Blue-eyed soul tunes really jacked me up to play professionally.
