    I thought Bruno's band was best of show, until I just watched Jennifer Hudson. Wow...not so sure any more. This has been one of he best Grammys ever, IMO.

    I was just about to post this. Yes that's his name. My friend has some videos of him during a shed session. Dude is a beast. He was tame during the Grammy's. You should hear him on a 7 string. When I find the video I'll post it here.
     
  12. He killed it! The whole band smoked and it was the best performance of the night.

    Wasn't he playing a Precision? Most of the bass players last night were playing Precisions.

    It's still luck. I know guys that can run circles around him on bass but the best they can do is nightly shows in the French Quarter every night. Sometimes you need a little luck. Like my dad says, it's guys that you will never know about that could out do Jordan one on one but you will never hear about him.

    He Killed it so bad I almost thought they were syncing to a recorded track.
    That guy was laying down a bass groove and doing the whole dance thing without a single hiccup.
    BaddAzz all the way. My favorite performance of the whole show.

    I get your point, but remember beating Jordan one on one is not the same thing as leading a team to a championship. The same goes for having great bass licks and being able to transslate that into a hot, big time band.

    Exactly. There are NBA players who can supposedly run circles around Tim Duncan, but how many rings do they have?

    That guy was on fire. I backed up the DVR a few times during that performance. GREAT!
