    ..what a great, down to earth musician- but aren't we all?!? ;)

    He has some great stories of working with Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, John Lennon and Foreigner to name a few..

    If you go to his site, you can read his tour diary for his perspective of his visit here in Halifax.

    That's awesome. Tony is the man, and he seems very laid back. Cool beans.

    Yeah, I talked to him briefly at a Bass Day clinic here in New York a few years ago, and I feel the same way: cool guy... :cool:

    I found out a few weeks ago that my coworker's cousin was married to him. He is a good guy. I was tickled when I found this out. But what made me mad was when she asked if I knew who he was and I replied "Yes", she looked at me with a shocked expression and said that most people who play bass said they don't know who he is. I just shook my head( :scowl: ).
     
  6. I play bass because of Tony Levin. I saw him play live with Peter Gabriel and I said, "I will play the bass"... I was hooked! You're lucky to have met him! I found out that he had done a clinic in my town 2 days before I saw him play (and learned of his existence). Imagine that... kickin' your own ass for not having gone to see a clinic put on by a guy you had never heard of until after the clinic was done!!! I don't share his talent, but I like to think I share his passion for the bass... and his love of small Terriers!

    P.S. Have you ever seen a Cairn Terrier go after a squirrel? If not, you ain't seen nothin' yet! WOW!!! :D
