The joy of creation and discovery – John McLaughlin shredding at 70

I still find new things. I wake up and pick up the guitar, and even if I don’t have anything in my head, I’ll discover something incredible. This happens to me every day. Every day, I discover something utterly unbelievable when I play. In the end… I don’t think we can get to the end. I’m going to die saying, ‘Can I have one more day?’ [laughs] Because the pleasure of discovery is just unequalled.”

Rapidshare sites being targeted?

Here’s an excerpt from a cease and desist note authored by John McLaughlin’s label manager, upset about RapidShare postings of his artists’ releases:

The information storeby your internet service provider will clearly point to your computer and location so it will not be that difficult to prove that your guilty.

Your choice .. but we are being very polite and nice about since we are sure that you love and support the music and what you are doing is destoying many peoples livelihood.
