Charles C. Jones. Chip was my best friend and he genius on the rhythm section. Always dressed in those suits and looked so darn classy. Chip did things on the skins I couldn't imagine another man doin'. He betrayed my trust in our late lives and I still ain't fully forgiven him for it. He did inspire me to be a better musician, however and I love him for it. He also brought me inspiration to apologize to the kid in his own way. Chip will forever be my best friend.
