Re: OT: Who do I remind you of?

For me, as a music fan, if I searched for artists like Robert Fripp
(loop based) and Ry Cooder (atmospheric roots guitar), and I found
Bill Walker, I'd be very happy. David Torn and Bill Brozman are good
combination, too. Tough to say what the correct "search words" are. I
think you should take that as a complement Bill Walker.
