Thank you for visiting my website. I really love hearing your feelings about a record I've worked on, or a show I've done, or something you'd like to hear me perform or record.

Hi! David. Last night I listened Nakano's Keyboards play, so exciting! Next year I will visit Baked potato and I want to see you! Thank you.

Hey Dave, I saw you and Landy play the baked potato last year!!! GREAT SHOW!!!!! I understand that you played with Steve Farris? Is he the X guitarist with Mr. Mister or some other musician with the same name??? Baffled?

Hi David, Man! I found out about the tribute to Carlos when I was finally able to check out your website YESTERDAY, but when I called Cordial for reservations, it was sold out w/ 40+ people on the waiting list. I'm happy for you and Carlos and all of his friends that it was sold out. I'm the fellow who approached you about Carlos at La Ve Lee. Ricky Lawson was playing w/ you that night. It was not a good night for you to talk about Carlos and you were very apologetic about that. You even called me to apologize (which wasn't necessary) for not being able to talk. Basically David, you and Lenny Castro are two of the few people I know that I could comiserate w/ about Carlos' passing, who would understand and be able to relate to my shock and sorrow. I was "lucky" when Jeff left us, in that I was able to share with J.R. at the Spud the night after it happened. and in the weeks following that tragedy, had the opportunity to comiserate with a few of my other drumming heroes. And I truly felt (and feel) for you (as well as Lenny, Luke and the others) for the awful pain you must be experiencing in losing TWO wonderful friends / compadres / soulbrothers. WOW. Jeff and Carlos were both heroes of mine. I was lucky enough to have numerous "encounters" with them and watch them play up close. They were both down-to-earth, friendly, classy guys. To have both of them taken away, way before their time, rips me up. Lately, I've been playing "Oozer" and "Little Wing" from the live Lobotomys CD over and over. "LW" features tremendously tasty / juicy / classy / perfect drumming by Jeff and a goosebump-producing, spine-tingling guitar solo by Luke (it's now one of all-time favorite guitar solos). "Oozer" features great-groovin' by Lenny Castro and Carlos with an excellent perc / drum solo break. Besides, it's a great tune. I'm hoping to see you Friday night at the Spud with one of my other heroes, Simon Phillips. Take care, God bless you, Creatch. You're one decent guy. And thanks for booking all of my favorite drummers for your gigs over the years (when are you going to get Gadd? Ha, ha!) Andrew

I attended your September Show at the Mint. I was able to meet you when you kissed my date on your birthday. We talked for awhile that day. The show was great. We hung out and met Luke afterwards. Thanks for the hosptality.

David, What Can I say? You're awesome! I have to give kuddos here to Lynn and Steph for being responsible for turning me on to you, and Luke, and the Lobotomy's. I've seen ya play a few times this year while I was in LA and I dug every gig! It sure looked like the keys were smokin' after you got done with them! ..see ya at a gig very soon... Brenda

Hello David. Here's your friend in Denmark, long time no see.I hope your're doing fine. Here in Denmark everything's a little slow, no good concerts since the TOTO promo tour. But we're very busy with Danish Friends of Westcoast music. Please check the website. I will be in L.A from 12.01.98 to 12.17.98 and i was hoping to see you and the guys at the Memorial concert for Carlos Vega, can you help us out with 3 tickets?? I hope you can. See you in L.A. Kindest regards big man Henrik Bohm P.s Very nice web you have. rial concert for Carlos Vega

Hi David, I just dropped in to see whats new. Scrolling thru your schedule, I am overwhelmed by all your live dates that I am missing out on. I realize LA is your home, but us East Coast fans are feeling kinda neglected. I was fortunate enough to catch you at the Modern Drummer Festival with Steve Ferrone a couple years ago... but I'm suffering from live Creatchy "groove withdrawal". I'm frustrated enough that TOTO never plays any live shows out here. How bout bringing Luke and the boys out to NYC for a big blowout show. WE DESERVE IT!!! Anyway, thanks for listening. You are The Man... keep grooving brother.

Creachy, man what a show last night at cafe cordial. you always know which musicians to pick, for the evening. i loved the tribute to horace silver. so many people turned out to watch you guys. i noticed joe porcaro, and many others. i cant wait until your next gig... i'll be there!!!!! keep the groove alive, and dont stop what your doin.

La, Ca USA - Thursday, November 19, 1998 at 20:36:06 (EST)

Very very nice site Dave. I bought the Tribute to Jeff CD last week (I know I'm late) and love it. I recently started to listen to jazz / electric jazz / fusion again after more than 10 years of hard rock and metal. I've seen you playing live with Steve Lukather, John Pena and Simon Phillips in 1995 in Montreux and was impressed by your playing. Take care. Laurent

Zurich, Switzerland - Monday, October 26, 1998 at 12:22:14 (EST)

The Mint was excellent. That's why I always check even the small, small, small ads to see who's playing in the future. I was unaware of your website until you mentioned it while you were on stage. Belated happy birthday. I couldn't believe Steve Vai showed up. The highlight of the night was the jam-of-all-jams where you guys played bits and pieces of songs. When you started to play Dave Gilmour I was jazzed. My friend plays guitar in a local PINK FLOYD tribute band called "Which One's Pink" and I've been trying to get him to come and see you play, especially to see Luke. I have raved about Luke for years, and was really disappointed that he was playing at Scruffy O'Shae's the same damn night. When I told him what you played he was wishing he could have been there. This guy is an inspiration when it comes to copying Gilmour's sound and tone. You should try and check out their next show Saturday October 24th @ Scruffy's again. It would be great if you could jam on the keyboards. Thank for all your LA shows, I've been at every one. House Of Blues was Bitchin' Regards from a Luke fan and a Music Man guitar player.

Dave- you probably don't remember me, but I was playing drums with Willie Akins at the Stagger Inn (Edwardsville Il) a couple years ago when you came in and sat in. Eddie Layman sat in on drums at the same time, and you guys smoked!! It freaked me out because I had no idea of who you were, I just knew you were some dude from LA. I really wish I could have been able to play with you that night, and it really meant a lot to me when you complimented me on the way I played, especially when I found out the calibre of musicians that you play with on a regular basis. Hopefully some day I will have the chance to see you play again.

Creachy - You are the cat man!!! Eevery time you play in town, I show up to see you play. Man oh man, Talk about a show. Even though Im sure you hear this alot, I have to tell you anyways... You have Been Such an inspiration to me. You have opened up many new doors in my musical future. I plan to one day go on and produce, engineer, and play the drums professionally. Keep groovin always! I look forward to all of your shows to come in the future, I will definitely be there. ~~~Thanks for everything, Steve~~~ P.S. Yeah Brotha!

sherman oaks, ca USA - Friday, October 16, 1998 at 00:36:25 (EDT)

David, Steph, and I had a blast at the show last night. You always bring such warmth to even the largest of clubs. See you at the next gig babe.

Northridge, Ca USA - Thursday, October 15, 1998 at 16:42:25 (EDT)

Hello, David, First of all I am very shocked to hear about Carlos Vega's death. I am also sorry for you to have lost your best friend. He was always my favorite drummer. Are there any plans to re-issue the "All The Way Live" album (in complete version as in original LP)? And also I wish it would be more easier to get your CD's here in Japan. I had to get the "Dream Come True" album via internet from Germany. Take care and I'll be looking forward to hear you live in Tokyo.

Dear, David My name is Anders and I am a swede attending Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. I am a music major with jazz-piano as principal instrument. I have several of your recordings (such as: Tribute to Jeff, Karizma - Cuba, Karizma - Forever in the arms..., Candyman and Los Lobotomys) and I have enjoyed a couple of your gigs in Sweden with TOTO and Los Lobotomys. As I found your music as a great source of inspiration, I would like to get further information about tour-dates and releases. Would it be possible to correspond with you by any chance?

creatchy: just wanted to say a big thanks and a belated happy birthday for your killer show at the mint last night. the band was smoking, and it's hard to believe that you guys only rehearsed once -- well, not really, since you guys are PHENOMENAL musicians. the entire band sounded fantastic, and i'm looking forward to future shows. best regards, john ou

Creatchy, you truly are the fusion / groove hippie love god of the next millenium. Thank you so much for making us aware of the benefit show for Paulette Brown at La Ve Lee via your web site. Our group of ten cats and kittens donated twice (once for each set) and we were blown away by the love and the groove in that room. It was great to see Paulette standing so strong in the blast of recognition while she fights such a tough battle. You were a most excellent governor of the grooving. Even though it was a big jam session, I think your guidance and musicality were fundamental in making the statement of love and brotherhood that I saw directed toward Paulette. And after all that, we had to agree it was the most memorable night of music that we've ever experienced. Way to go, David. Keep that incense and the grooves burning, babe. Love,

Dave I just want to share a moment about Carlos with you that I had. We did a date together. I played keys and carlos played drums. Carlos did a Steve Gadd lick during the session and after the session I went up to him and said, that was a Gadd lick. He smiled at me and told me he hung with Gadd. I told him I also played drums, he invited me to his house and we had our kits face to face and just jammed. It was great. He wanted me to teach him some licks on the piano so I showed him some licks and then he showed me some licks on the set and I showed him some of mine, he really liked one. He asked me to come back and jam again but I never did, he was too great. I loved Carlos so much because for some reason I related to him and his playing. Every time I'd check him out at a gig we'd always go back and talk. He was a beloved friend even though we only met about a dozen times. It was a Tom Gunn session we played together at.

Hi, I am a long time fan of Karizma. I listen to other related albums like the "Los Lobotomy" and "Tribute to Jeff." Would the complete version of "All the Way Live" album (am I correct with the title?) be available? That was my favorite album. The abbreviated version CD was available in Japan some years back but it is hard to find now. And I wish it will be easier to get your CD's in Japan. I had to order the "Dream Come True" album all the way from Germany. Thanks.

Hi David, How ya doin'? Your webpage is really good, one of the best one's I've seen so far. I've been playing your cds here at work (the former ASR - now DOCdata) quite a bit lately and everyone always says "turn it up"! They all love "Corbitt" (naturally) so I play it often. I get bummed sometimes when I hear it - y'know, thinking of Carlos and all, but what can you do. We all hope you and his family are doing better. As always, I look forward to trying to make your next gig. Stay positive and healthy, and keep on making great music... Glenn

Hi David, I am very sorry for the death of your best friend Carlos Vega. I am a very, very big fan of his. I first saw and heard him on the GRP Live Video and was fan of him ever since. I am still in shock of his death and actually I just found out last week of his death. How is his family doing?, his wife? I heard he has two daughters, how old are they? I'm looking forward to his tribute-concert you are planning and I hope I can get to meet you and talk about how wonderful a human being he is. Thank you very much. James

Hi David! The Tribute to Jeff album it is just great. I think it was time that a well structured tribute record was made. I think the album shows the great manifold, if you can say that, all you guys are a part of, when it is about making music and when you look into the deep relatin between human beings at all levels. When it is about my feelings towards Jeff, I have lot to say. But to limit myself I will say this. Jeff and what he was and still standing for, it is the greatest symbol for me when it is about my love and feeling to music. By the way Does it exist some videos or cuts from american television of Jeff? (except the instruction video and / live in Paris /. My feelings goes also to Carlos Vega. I'll guess Jeff and Carlos have lot to talk about. They will never be forgotten. KEEP ON DAVID!

Hi David! Glad to know I can finally write you, since you ran me off the phone last Dec. (regarding Jeff's audio tapes.?) No, this is no joke and I hope you'll still reconsider your decision. Please understand my point of view too, I just want a chance to hear them. This will be my last plea and you are the only one who can help me with this matter.? If I didn't care, I wouldn't have bothered you to begin with. Your Fellow Toto-Sister Fan, Cynthia:) P.S. Love Your Music Too!!

Hi there. Congratulations on the Jeff Porcaro Tribute. An incredible mammoth task, that you should be really proud of. Without a doubt, anyone who knows me here in Sydney will know Jeff is and will always be my absolute hero of all time, and as I'm writing this we've found out only a few days ago that Carlos has gone. Really,really sad. Congratulations once again and when are you coming to Australia? See ya, Kere Buchanan.

Hey Dave, I've seen your band several times and loved it. Just got the news last night about Carlos. What a great loss. His passing will surely touch many great musicians deeply, very much so. His playing will always be an inspiration to me, how he elevated the players in the band. So clearly a great player and person.

I've just bought the Tribute To Jeff recording and all I can say is - Wow!!! This album is the best I've heard since TOTO released The Seventh One. It was worth all the money I had to spend to import it ('cause I live in Sweden and for some odd reason you can't find it in any stores).

Yo Creatch, One word to say about Tribute to Jeff, Incredible! I was wondering if you have any plans on trying to release Greg Mathieson's Baked Potato Super Live. It seems everyone I talk to that knows anything about it would love to own a copy. Something to think about. Thanks, Ron

Bloomington, USA - Friday, April 03, 1998 at 10:02:16 (EST)

Great site man! Love your work. Any plans for releasing Tribute to Jeff somewhere else than Japan? Also, if I'm right, all the Karizma records are re-issued except for "All the way"-LIVE... will it be re-issued too? Thanks again, Daniel

David ... I have seen you perform several times. This year has been very special. I have seen you 3 times and I really believe that your soul has been kissed by the spirt of Jeff. This is something that I find hard to describe, but your energy has been lifted to a place of meaning and strength, that seems to have been affected by the spirt of Jeff. I feel that Jeff is behind you in all you do musically. Kind of like a big thank you bro for the recognition you have given him. The strongest I felt his presences was the gig at the Mint in Feb. For my girl friend it was at the spud in March. Continue the work for this is where it is at. Steph

Hey David. We're gassing on the fact that GarLuk will perpetrate another massive dose of throbbing, groovaliciousness at the Baked Potato this Friday. I heard Don Randi will be passing out spatulas so we can peel ourselves off the back wall when you cats shut down. As far as music goes, I feel you guys are "as good as it gets". We have no idea who will carry the torch when you stop. So don't. Keep your hands warm and dry and that incense lit, babe.

I'll be the gray haired dude, my beautiful brunette bride to be sitting next to me, and a permanent grin on my face from the beautiful music that emits from your mind, fingers and spirit! I never know what to expect when you & Luke get together other than brilliance! I hope you & your family are well!

David! Your site looks terrific. I found it by way of the TOTO LEGEND club site. I was fortunate enough to see you live last May at the Modern Drummer Festival with Steve Ferrone... what a blast! I've been grooving on your sounds since I stumbled across Karizma and Los Lobotomys. Keep 'em coming! Thank you for the Tribute To Jeff project. He is an enormous influence to me, and I miss him greatly. Please come visit the East Coast... this talk of a "Jeff Tribute" show in NYC would be killer!

Dear David, I must say to you THANK-YOU. I admire your work, your music. I have the "Los Lobotomys" albums and Jeff's tribute (which is an outstanding production!!!). I don't have a lot of things to say except thank-you for the music you make. So, don't stop!!!!

I love your work and your webpage. I thoroughly enjoyed the Porcaro tribute CD. I was even lucky enough to snag the Japanese numbered copy of "99". Cool, huh?? Anyway, I've got a friend here in Omaha who says he gigged with you once upon a time. His name is Steve Rehbein and he is a percussionist / mallet player who used to play in a band called Auracle. Do anything for you???? If you have a chance, let me know. In any event, keep up the great work. I've got copies of "The Cats" and "Dream Come True" on their way to me in the mail from Thoughtscape and I'm dying to hear them. Catch you later...

Hey Creature Feature. Your web site could get the certificate of huge-ness, if you (or your web-jocky) would put the schedule page back up. I'm tryin' to find out when and where you and the cats are throwin' down next in this swanging town... Cool runnings, you incense-toting fusion hippie love god.

Hi Creatchy, Thanx for the great music you and your friends have been giving me. I'm a huge Lukather-fan and I love his work with you. Tribute to Jeff is a masterpiece, keep up the vibe! Greets, Roy 8)

Hi David, good to know there is some place to get information about your activities. Back in April '96 we met each other at Chadney's and later on at La Vee Lee. (Remember 'the guy from Bochum' ?...) Last November I scanned the valley for some cool gig but you were not around. Love the Tribute-stuff. Can't wait to get a copy of your new record. I guess that's what many of us had hoped for: a Karizma-style kind of a thing.. Cheers, Michael.

Hi David, I would love to talk to you about doing "A Tribute to Jeff" Show at Le Bar Bat, a club I book music at here in NYC. I've done some work with Fagen and Becker, and I know a bunch of the players on the album. I'm also sure Will Lee could help gather the East Coast guys. When I read about the Baked Potato gig, it gave me the idea of doing one in New York. You can check out the club at the above URL. Needless to say, I was, and still am a huge Jeff fan, and I think this would be a fantastic show! Hope to hear from you!

Hi David. I was introduced to you in the Jeff instructional video and have followed you quite closely since then. I absolutely love the candyman album and if that's an example of the kinda stuff you and Luke can come up with, then move in with him... ha ha ha You are a true marvel and I wish you all the best.

Hallo Mr. Garfield! I only want to say, the greatest album I've ever hearded is the candy man with Luke. I never forget the wonderful concert in Hamburg at Fabrik in 1994!! I hope you give us more of this in the near future. Thanks

Hey there. Loved the show Saturday night - both sets. Stephi, my daughter bought 2 CD's. -- she has most of them I think. We listened to Recollections Sunday - very nice. Enjoyed it very much. Hope you get down to the San Diego area - would love to see you again. There is a jazz festival on the Saturday of Memorial Day. The jazz station 98.1 KIFM (along with others) sponsors it. My roommate & I have been going to them for some time. It's great even if it does make for a long day. Let me know if you're going to be down in this area --- Thanks. Bari.

David, I caught your show (first set) at the Baked Potato last night (1/24/98). As usual, you cats (Dave Garfield, Steve Lukather, John Pena, Greg Bisonnette) were awesome and very frothy. I always find something new and exciting in your live (keyboards) performances. My ears are still ringing. But its a good ring, you know? Thanks. Love, Bruce

Hi Creatchy! Great site! I've been listening to you since the Karizma albums, and I've seen you live once with the Los Lobotomys and once with Lukather. Any plans on gigs in Sweden in the near future?

Hi David, good to have Creatchy online at last. Everybody's talking about the re-release of a selftitled Karizma album (originally released in 1978) with Luke and Dean Parks on guitars and of the long awaited reissue of Karizma's "Dream Come True". Can you confirm this great news? I'm not quite shure if these informations are right, because I haven't found anything about this on the Creatchy site. Thanks in advance and have a good one, Ralf

You make some great music, especially when Mike and Steve are there too. Love the Riding Bean album !!! And almost everything else !!! Will All the way and Dreams come true be re-released ??? Keep making this great jazz / fusion / rock. Love you and everyone else who loves great music.

David, Welcome to the WWW I pretty much love everything I've heard you on. The "Tribute to Jeff" CD is very moving, 21 Drum Salute particularly. Thank you for putting that together for us. I understand that there will be a live performance of the album. Will that be released on CD / Video? I hope so. See you around. John.

It is a real pleasure working with you and looking forward on a lot of great projects in the future. The web-site is killer and I'm thrilled to see, that everybody gets the information he wants. See you soon my friend. P.S. Check the official Michael Landau page right now.

David, we've never met but I was introduced to Los Lobotomys at its inception through Johnny Slamm (Pena). I saw the group many times while living in LA from 1985-93 (long live the Baked Potato!) I use (along with Brandon Fields' records w/ John and Jimmy Johnson and Mike Landau's solo efforts) a "live in Japan" recording of Los Lobotomies (w/ Will Lee) for my Arranging Classes here at Berklee College of Music. When will Los Lobotomys be available in the US? I could sell records here if they were available (Tower Records) is a half block from the college . As for "Tribute to Jeff", when will that be released as well? Good luck, if you're in the East - get in touch, I'd like to have you at the college for seminars etc... Tell Johnny Slamm I said hi.
