    - By Arend, Dec 31, 2006 12:00 AM
    Lukather: "New news... On February 9th and 10th 2007 a reunion of sorts will occur at The Baked Potato as I am re-uniting with Greg Mathieson to perform a bunch of old material from the classic Baked Potato Super Live record we did in 1981. Filling in for Jeff Porcaro and Pops (Robert Popwell) are Lee Sklar on bass and Abe Laborial jr on drums. Should be a blast and a walk down memory lane. Its been a LONG LONG time since I jammed with Greg and 20 some odd years since we played any of these tunes! It will be great to play while I am doing my solo record to keep the chops up."

They are VERY dear friends and monster players. Perhaps I should try to win "slowest guitar player on the gig award"?? What do you think? Hahaha... Cause THOSE cats have the scary chops. Love it myself. They are also VERY musical with it. I think Paul Gilbert and Scott Henderson are doing it as well with no doubt more guests added daily.
