Devastating fire.

Simon Phillips has had our attention recently as part of the Hiromi Trio Project, but he has a long and accomplished career, including a long tenure with Toto.

There's a pretty direct Alembic connection too - he played with Stanley Clarke, live & in the studio (Rocks Pebbles & Sand) - here's one from '78:

These fires are just awful.

They are awful. I've been talking to people the last couple of days, and it's at least as bad as you see on the news. Hoping the winds die down and they get a handle on the flames soon.

I'm in North San Diego County and the winds are howling outside right now. Probably the strongest they've blown at my house in the last 4 days.  They're supposed to start tailing off tomorrow. Hopefully that helps slow them  down.

My area has forced evacuations from the Lilac fire.

My house survived.   The fire crews did a pretty amazing job minimizing the loss, considering the conditions they were facing.

That's great news Toby.  :D

Having had my own home partially destroyed once, I was really hoping and praying it wouldn't happen to anyone here in this little community.
