Seventh Chakra is Neil Numminen, bassist, and audio engineer. OK, maybe a little keys and lapsteel as well.
The particular co-operation of musicicians that is Seventh Chakra only performs in the studio to date. We all have different situations that we perform live in.
Earliest influences that I can recall are the motown hits coming over the radio. Then my mother playing Russian music on LP. Then my brother and sister started influencing me with what they listened to, Yes, Santana, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Jimi Hendrix. And then the one song that changed my life, made me want to play music , was Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein". After that came Weather Report, Jeff Beck, Miles, C. Parker and Mingus. PFM are still a big favorite of mine.
