|June 21, 1992: We Be Jammin'|
J&B on the ROX wasn't videotaped tonite as planned. We postponed until tomorrow becuz Joe (finally) got the drum machine from Jim K_______. We spent some time playing around and a bit of time actually getting something programmed for "Upinnit." Joe still hasn't memorized even half of his part.
