    I was lucky enough to meet and talk w/ Rocco at a TOP concert in Nashville in 2012. Great guy and a MONSTER player.

    BTW, he is YAGPWTTB -- yet another guitar player who turned to bass.

    One of the true masterpieces of bass guitar playing. Rocco crushed by mainly playing one note.:bassist:
     
  5. Yes, very fast and very precise.

    My drummer is a distinct cousin of Rocco. After more than a decade grooving together, I'm pretty sure that none of the brilliance has rubbed off on me.

    I'm such a TOP fan, but boy, this vocalist really diminishes the music, imo. Has the range, but not the funkiness or soul. But what do I know.
