Bon is a fusion cat, Gong was a fusion band as I understand? He can certainly do jazz but his voice is really what I would call fusion. I'm more a funk guy so I may be butchering that. But he has been incredible to play with, likes to keep up with the times which is more than I can say about most players.
Ryan is a freakin trip. Super nice, super knowledgeable about all sorts of things which I appreciate very much. We've done the dual bass things a few times now and it works pretty well AS LONG AS when he goes low I got high and vice versa. So that gives him a good bit of leeway to do his thing. Super humble. Hope to see Mudvayne back around at some point.
I did not buy the bass. Don't know whether to shoot for that or a completely custom bass, but I have a bass that really fits my playing now so I have to think long and hard about jumping ship. But that bass definitely opened the door to me considering it, I could never deal with the tighter warwick spacing. However, I may actually like 20mm more than 19mm.
