    This guy is an amazing bass player. Any of you guys heard him play? He's got such great groove. He's so good at improv as well. He plays with a pick and fingers equally amazingly.

    Just wondering if any bass players have heard of him around here.

    I know Mike..I met him when I was living and performing in South Florida….he was the bassist for IKO IKO for many years…he is in LA now ( thats the last I heard from him )and I believe he is on staff at one of the local music schools…he's a great guy and an amazing bass player…. he turned me onto the Eden Nemesis 2 x 10 combo which was his main amp for many years.. I hope he is doing well..he deserves it..
    Look for a drummer Stewart Jean who was also in the IKO IKO band and headed west...

    It makes me happy that at least a few people know him.

    He's so good. It would be a god damn shame if no one knew it.
