Michael Spiro

I asked Michael If he had checked out our talking drums tribute? He replied:

"Graeme - Yes I did. Sounded good, I would have liked to hear more! You sound excellent on the kit - I like the conga player, would like to have some time with him. He's on the right track.
Thanks so much for contacting me and introducing yourself, and hopefully we'll get to meet in person one day!"

All the best - Michael
