Happy Birthday, Mike. He's been a huge inspiration to me in my life and is one of those people that if you are fortunate to meet, they change your life forever.

In this video he's discussing playing a track and jamming with Jimi Hendrix on Electric Ladyland.

The shuffle Rainy Day, Dream Away is an incredible spontaneous jam as Mike Finnegan tells it in the DVD. Finnegan is playing organ/ bass on this, with Miles again on drums and Larry Fawcett on tenor sax. Miles says it’s the track he is proudest of in his entire career.

If there's a better player than Mike in the music industry, I'd like to meet him. And the man sings like the wind.

We're lucky enough to have him on C&L always contributing to the awesomeness that is 'Mike's Blog Round Up.' It's a tribute to him and the entire blogosphere. We're working together and Mike continues to be the bridge that links us.

Can you help us out?
