    Excellent video. Very down to earth for someone with his success. Huge influence on a generation of bassists.

    I'm seeing Robert playing his Bruce Nelson bass far more often than his signature Model T.

    I actually finally got a chance to watch this whole video. My biggest influence and player I most connect with.

    Robert Deleo is God.

    Yes, want. Anyone know how to contact Bruce Nelson? Can't find him anywhere through google. Perhaps you great people might know. Want one of those basses. Please.

    I just happened across this a few weeks ago. I knew little about him aside from his great lines and my respect for him only increased after listening to this. I'm especially impressed that he came up with the music for some of their biggest hits. Seems like a really cool guy.

    Great video, thanks for sharing. If this guy isn’t careful he could give bass players a good name.

    Ya’ll have no idea what kind of a bassist he is until you see him live. Un-freaking real. They put on a heckuva show last night in Chattanooga. He played the Nelson all night. 6E924B0E-820B-4660-A197-EDC2C872E4E8.

    I was able to get front standing room in front of him in San Francisco (5 feet away), it was like a religious experience. I grew up in complete awe of him, and frankly, I am still in awe of him. Going to that concert, being that close to him, left me in a state of complete joy and contentment that I haven't felt many times in my life.
