Saw them first about 17 years ago. Amazing live.
Listen to 'Flight of the Cosmic Hippo'.
They used to have a guy who played both the paino and the harmonica at the same time. All of the members are great musicians.

Bela said they never knew what to name the songs, asked if anyone could think of a name that fit a song to let them know, and they would name it that.

I have no idea, but I'd bet they beat the Ram's.
When I was a kid my dad took me to all the games. My favorite part was watching the buffalo run out.
As I got older I just went there to party and see shows, and a long since gone girlfriend.

I saw Bela Fleck at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival about 1979 (I think that is were I saw him). His music really cannot be labeled. They have been playing some cuts from an album he did with Chick Chorea on the jazz channel here. I guess he is sort of a blue grass jazz fusion? I said it can't be labeled and now I am trying to label it.

No, I was having some fun with the Bob R, Babar, thing. Sounds the same.

Seems he had cancer, died several years ago. Ah, died from Lymphoma in 1995:

I did, actually.
My sense of humour is a little screwed up.

The wiki link said there was a video game for Bob Ross. So he lives on.

We had a Buffalo farm in our little town.
Marshall's (Huntington, WV's) mascot is the buffalo and it was offered.
They turned it down.
