This video (and the YouTube video's like it) have really been such a weird thing for me. In my opinion they're just awesome!

For years I was in the group diggin' on Bob for a) adjusting his rig all night, b) clack, clack, Jing and c) finding the most heinous note in Space, and beating it to death. To be give a bit of perspective, I've been seeing the band since 1981...and I have seen my share of flat to midland shows.
I started playing guitar about 6 years ago, and every time I see something like this it's a catharsis. Playing behind somebody as great as Jerry has given Bob a truly unique rhythm style. And I would now count him amongst the greats in his own right.
