In this interview, Doug explains how he chooses what to play and how he integrates it all into the hard-rocking musical art that is <a href="http://www.livingcolour.com">Living Colour</a>. </p>

    As long as Doug and living Colour are in Milwaukee, they should swing by De Moines for a show or two :hyper: :hyper:

    Words of wisdom from Doug Wimbish!

    "The success of the relationship is defined by how you think and how generous you are - how willing you are to put the music first. It's best if the two people are not selfish and have respect for the music. If you can park the personality and come to the stage or session with respect for the music and each other, you're automatically a 50% better player."

    All I can say is right on. What better mindset than to play for the music and forget oneself! :)
