more reasons why Vic is not human.

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by ImNotGeddyLee, Jun 21, 2003.


  1. im sitting here watching the bela fleck live from the quick dvd and at about an hour into it there is an amazing solo duel with victor and Sandip Burman on tabla. What may possibly be more amazing then victors playing is the fact that he leans forward to an ungodly angle while playing... i cant see how he can humanly do that. He literally leans over past a 45 degree angle WHILE playing bass... someone please explain to me what is happening here because it has to be some type of vile trickery.

    My roomate said that vic must have sold his soul to satin for three wishes:
    1. to be the best bass player in the world
    2. to be able to lean over really far
    3. that satanicly ugly shirt (if you have scene the dvd you know what im talking about)

    My favorite part is the drawer with the bananas.

    "do you have one of these? look at this? no one has one of these?

    :D :D :D :D

    of course that was bela.


    and....vic is human.
     
  3. he did not sell his soult to satan..





    He IS SATAN!









    JK.. A drummer friend of mine used to say Terry Bozzio was Satan in a very funny way.. And BTW.. some say VIctor uses a device for leaning over that way, and I just read in a thread that once, there were actually some of his brothers holding him in front of the stage while he leaned..

    :rolleyes: Any way.. relax.. He is human.. and all humans are capable of doing things anyone would consider extraordinary, with a bit of practice.. So cut the satanic bussiness thing and go grab your bass!!
     
  4. That's so much cooler than selling your soul to satan.....

    :p

    Really ugly shirts are par for the course for Vic.

    Also, have you ever seen his "Super Bass Solo Technique" Video? He obviously enjoys doing physical feats to impress people (as we see from the cheesy shots of him juggling and riding a unicycle that are interspersed during his last performance...what's up with that?!). Whether the lean is a feat or a trick is, I guess, undetermined.

    Yes, clearly Vic is definitely the best bassist. Bass pyrotechnics are clearly the number one indicator of talent.

    If you want to witness inhuman playing, check out Dominique Di Piazza (John McLaughlin Trio, Frontpage).

    He's also a minister, so he even did NOT sell his soul to Satan :D
