Well, CC's one of my main influences when it comes to my music (where you can get a feel of it via http://www.freewebs.com/chromaticism/music.htm especially on "Picturesque" and "Family Portrait" from "Opus No. 1"). I'm actually more into the the "Return To Forever" era, "The Romantic Warrior" being my favorite album. I especially loved "Duel of the Jester and The Tyrant" as well as the title track. Though CC's Elektric Band was amazing, I think his most creative and heaviest output was from the RTF days. Despite being completely amazed by CC, I don't subscribe to his philosophy or his religion. With that being said, can never deny being addicted to his music.
