dream come true

  1. I went to see les claypool last night in st. louis MO. I got there about 2 hours early to try to get him to sign my basses I've built. well, I got to meet the man himself and he did sign one of my basses, the 6-string frettless. But even better he took my 4-string inside with him and played it for the sound check and brought it back out to me and gave me some pointers on how he likes his basses. He even said he would probably buy one of my basses one day. what an awesome feeling. although, I try not to get my hopes too high. the picture is him signing the 6-string. I'll have some more pics later, the floppy drive is damaged here at work.
  2. I'm personally not a big fan, but it's very cool to hear about a famous artist spending quality time with fans and fellow bassists. Very cool. Victor Wooten, Mike Pope, Tommy Kennedy and other's are very good about this also.

    Very, very cool!

    Les is quite an interesting fellow to talk too. Glad you had the opportunity to meet him.

    Your basses are also very interesting. Very interesting indeed.
