Aw dang, thanks everybody.  Needless to say, I feel pretty uncomfortable about it.  I don't like this kind of attention, I prefer to lurk in the background.  But Chris Jisi called me at a weak moment and I said yes.  One of my finest qualities may be that I was available!!  Ha!  And I suppose the "achievement" might just be that I've been able to only play bass my entire life.  Of course that means I have no other marketable skills.  HA!!


It's an honor for sure.  Feels like a mistake but ... very nice of them to invite me.


Gotta go practice.


Thanks all!!
Jimmy J

I think it is a richly deserved and well-chosen honor.  You are a wonderful example of exceptional talent and exceptional grace, a complete antidote to the caricatures this business can create.

Think the world of you, and a heartfelt congratulations.

All the Best,

Thanks again everybody.  I'm still trying to get a grip on the whole thing. 

I've never attended this "event" they put on and it cracks me up that a bass-specific mini-NAMM show like this even exists.  And like NAMM, I realize it's really about selling gear, advertising in the magazine, and the "biz" side of things.  But it should be a fun hang nevertheless.  In my experience, drummers seem to be more socially connected than bass players ... so this will be a chance to see a lot of my heroes and get a solid earful of bass talk. 

I did warn Chris (from BP Mag) that the gear I use is not exactly "mainstream"  Ha!!  But they're good with that.

Now my challenge is to get some guys together to play at the Saturday night event.  Oh oh.  Band leader?  That's trouble.  What guys?  What songs?  What key?  What the heck?  Thankfully it's a short set!! 

OK, back to practicing.

Cheers everybody!
