Herbie Hancock, master musician and apparently owner of a lot of freaky robots, turns 72 years old today. Happy Birthday, Herbie!

Back when I was a kid the robots in this video really freaked me out. Now I think it’s pretty awesome. What I wouldn’t give for a trio of robotic, dancing pants …

Hancock took a slightly scaled-down version of his robotic backing crew on the road with him. Here’s Mr. Hancock performing Rockit at the 1984 Grammy Awards.

I'm into old video games, old arcade games, old computer games, writing, photography, computer/network security, and of course, the 1980s!
