I remember seeing him with Santana on the Grammies when Santana won all the awards for " Smooth". The next week I was at the 55 bar in NYC to see Mike Stern. 55 Bar is like a shot and beer joint - pretty funky. It was close to showtime and the drummer finally shows up - it was Rodney dragging his drums in like any one of us late for the gig at our local bar. Pretty much illustrates the weirdness of SHOW BIZ.... and of course he blew my mind!

Wife and I saw a very young Rodney Holmes perform with smooth jazz / fusion band Special EFX before his Santana performances etc. We saw him at an old theater in NJ with Special EFX in Rutherford NJ and pieces of plaster where falling of the ceiling during the show ! Classic memories !! He is a very fine drummer !! IMHO
