Baba - See what happened? I hired you as soon as we moved the store from Calabasas to Studio City in 1988, and the joint instantly became a magnet for current and future bass legends. Thanks for being you, as well as the foundation of our teaching staff for so many years! Every time I read a response, it brings back so many great memories. I also just realized I'd left out Trevor Lindsey (another great human being, and another amazing bassist) when I mentioned our teaching staff in a previous post. I'm certain I've missed a few others as well. Thanks for the kudos for Nick (and for writing the letter to help get him into the school!) Now that he's done at LAMA, he's been Jonesin' to get back in front of people and play live again. I'll have him give you a call. I hope you're well. We'll get out to see you again soon!
