‘Reggie: I did meet a kid, actually he’s from Chicago, Dylan Torres at the Baked Potato. He’s 23 and totally gets it, and he’s a great kid. He blew me away with his musical knowledge.
CJ: “Ya, I know him. I love that guy. He’s been keeping in touch with me.”
Reggie: He knows it because it’s from his heart, his head and his soul. Not from an iPhone.
CJ: “It’s because you have to know it. That’s why I learned it. That’s why ALL of us learned it.”’
