Dear Super Robertson,
I enjoyed last night's Roadbed show. No, I don't think there were too many solos, considering the circumstances—new drummer and everything. Sam seemed eager to give it his all. He was like Tony Williams up there. I think the crowd appreciated it. All credit to you and the Shockker for holding the riffs down while he went at it.
It was a different kind of Roadbed show for sure...the usual balance of yer rhythm section was tilted somewhat, but it's early days yet. If you stick with Sam I'm sure you'll find equilibrium after a few more shows.
"Kill the Loudmouth" was really, really, really great.
Keep them mowing blades sharp,
