Anyone else read this interview? I have recently become a busy session player, (don't know how it happened, really), so this article was a real inspiration for me! What hit home with me the most is when he said, "I get up each day with as much insecurity as any other person who picks up an instrument". I have been struggling with suddenly finding myself playing with some heavy hitting artists, and I have those moments where I look around the studio and go "when did I advance to this level?" and feel kind of an inferiority compared to the people Im playing with. To hear Leland, a very in demand bassist with over 2,000 albums in his resume, broach the subject was like a breath of fresh air. Ive always admired the guy, but now I have a whole new level of respect!
