Yeah, Cocuzzi was there, but the guys in AZ ain't Ascione, Block, Polcer,
Barrett, and Tate in working band format. While the above are all excellent,
Ascione, for example is one of the best drummers in the world today. Yet  I
think most (not all) of us one the list probably have never heard of him,
much less heard him live.
