To me, the most important member of JiD when they emerged in 1997 had been Billy Cobham. His performances were like a Niagara Falls of percussion and infectious joy. When they came around again in 2001 or 2002, they had a new drummer and Jeff Pevar on guitar instead of Herring who had obviously moved on to PLF and The Other Ones (as I refuse to stop calling them), and it just didn't fly the same as the first line-up- I was especially unimpressed by the sleepy version of Sugar Magnolia.
