This is a wonderful clip of Herbie Hancock, demonstrating his Fairlight on Sesame Street in 1983-4. The little girl at the start is Tatyana Ali, who went on to become Ashley in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and the geek in the background is Clive Smith, who didn't. At around the same time, this is how Herbie looked on Saturday Night Live, with an Rhodes Chroma (+ the expander), a black Fairlight, and several band members in jumpsuits.

I remember this episode. Of course at the time I didn't know what a fairlight or who herbie hancock was. Great stuff!
ahh this is TOTALLY awesome. But even better is the video of Herbie on comedy central. He dances (and dresses) like my dad. Sadly my dad can't play like Herbie, so there the similarity ends. Man that Chroma gives me the horn - it sounds +so+ fat!
