I had never heard of this fellow before I went to Detroit in May and saw him at a bass clinic. This guy plays like a fiend! It really was an eye-opener of sorts for me. Got a hold of a solo CD of his, too - "The Difference Engine" and am finding it to be just as inspirational to me as "A Show of Hands" was. Just wondering if anyone else had caught his bass clinics while he was on tour, or whether anyone else had heard his work (solo or otherwise)...?
