    Whenever Tsu or I leave, it is customary for us to say - McLaughlin style - BYE BYE!

    I've been watching him since he was little Johnny McLaughlin.

    Oh, and I thought you were talking about the guitarist John McLaughlin who led the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
    from Allmusic.com

    I have a really cool album he did with Carlos Santana. :cool:

    And he's done some really cool tunes in a trio with Al DiMeola and Paco De Lucia!

    I also that this topic was refering to him at first. He's awesome.

    I can say with absolute metaphysical certitude that McLaughlin is awesome. Sometimes even he can hardly keep a straight face. And he gets to tell Buchanan to shut up. Now how cool is that?

    Oh yes, great show! Well worth watching, more often than not.

    I think that was one of three character skits that Dana Carvey did that I thought was funny. He did the McLaughlin Group skits pretty often.

    yeah friday night in san fransisco was one of my favourite albums at one time. i guess i've moved on from dimeola but i just got his live @ montreaux dvd recently which was good. i also liked john mclaughlin (the REAL one lol) live & the royal festival hall. it's a very laid-back album. :cool:

    I would pay big money to see this guy tear Bill O'reilly a new ass on tv. I think Bill O'reilly gets nightmares of McLaughlin shreading him on his own show.
