    Richard Bona is a tremendous musician. I think BP Mag did him a disservice when it called him the next Jaco. He is a truely gifted player and someone deserving much greater recognition and his own spotlight (and not an unfair comparison to Jaco)

    I recently found out that he owns a bass that I used to own. A very cool ABG made my John Buscarino. It looks like a big Tele with a round hole and acoustic guitar style bridge. It had a fishamn piezo in it. I traded it for my Walter Woods
