    What does that mean (he slams) ?

    Moreover, how much of the writing process was Mike supposed to contribute to? Up until Diver Down, his bass sat upfront on many songs, but at some point, he was buried in the mix. Who/what did that?

    I can not believe that somebody hasnt told him. "Dont do that, just stick with this". Somebody HAS to have but it seems evident taht Dave is too much of an alpha to take it on board.
    I think the same thing that made him so great on stage in the day is what screws him up now. Overconfidence, exuberance, lack of control. He's still Dave. It's like asking Babe Ruth to shorten his swing at the end of his career because he was missing a lot more pitches.

    somehow a ton of stuff got deleted from my IPOD so I reloaded all the music I have on my computer, I have tons of VH boots (everything from the clubs to the ADKOT tour), they were so f'n good until the whole 96 fiasco.
