so, i bought "rising low" this weekend, and highly reccomend it. the fact that they got that many of the biggest bassists is unbelievable. victor wooten's absence is conspicuous though. anyway, at one point, everyone talks about how big of an influence joey arkenstat was on them. i'm pretty knowledgeable about bassist history (or whatever you call it), and i have no earthly idea who he is. i'd never even heard his name before. man, is he a trip though. he's crazy i think...maybe burnt out, i don't know. anyway, if anyone knows who he is, and how he influenced everybody, please help me out. btw, isn't larry graham hilarious. i cant watch him without laughing.
