But those guys would stay with him every bit. Yeah. Yeah. But you guys do we do it too. Those who guys kind of never got any credit tool, but I were incredible vanished. Mitchell's drumming was phenomenal. Yeah. No ratings vice plan, you listen to he sticks with Jimmy every the way. Yeah. Amaechi I'd seems I keep is is similar in terms of his momentum. And how he'll play Mitch came from the same area of us. We. In london. We we knew guys Rony would cause number any Rony would since he was fifteen years old..
