Rocco Prestia is one of my bass heroes- i think many of us share that feeling. i have met and hung with Rocco on several ocassions, he has always been warm and very friendly to me. I suspect he's that way to most people. Rocco needs a liver, I think we have all heard by now. What I am compelled to do and I have contacted his fund, is the following: If you contribute $50 or more DIRECTLY to Rocco's fund, I have proposed that they enter your name into a drawing in which the giveaway will be a new Lakland 55-01 bass supplied by access-bass. I await reply from the people at Rocco's fund, but they issued a challenge and I'm willing to contribute in this manner.. so if you give $50 or more, you could win a shiny new smokin' Lakland 55-01.. courtesy of access-bass.com - we owe a lot to Rocco, let's show what we as bass brothers are made of and help him get a liver.. what do you say??? We have lost too many greats recently, we need Rocco here to keep funking us all up!!! any questions- please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org - peace!!!
