    Thanks for posting the link. Great read. Jerry is what playing the bass is all about. I'm sure most members have no idea who he is. Big influence on me.

    I agree with you, man. He's definitely worth studying extensively. Jaco thought so, right? Didn't hurt his playing a bit. Ha!

    He lives in this area. Held a small clinic recently and it was great information from a playing and a "behind the music standpoint."

    Super nice dude.

    Jerry's work on B.B. King's 1969 "Live and Well" album just blew me away. I had probably heard him on other tracks before that but didn't know who was laying it down. Kind of like Jamerson at Motown. Didn't know until years later who was behind all that great playing.

    I've always loved the role of the bass in music, but Jerry was one of the main reasons I started playing it.
  9. Awesome interview!!!!
