  1. Out of someone you've never seen before, and this person has to be around today. (so no Jaco ;))

    I'd like to see Victor Bailey (something that focuses on his playing; not with Madonna!).

    I'd also like to see George Benson. I'd like to hear him play like he did back in the day - bebop and endless funk jams in F#7. :)

    I would love to see Abraham Laboriel more than anyone else! He is amazing, and if you've never heard him you should check out his video (at mars music, guitar center, etc.) IMO!!! This guy is awesome, but I don't know if he's touring or anything.

    Roger Waters
    BB King

    DHC -

    I'm honored to be considered a peer of those guys, although I am certain I don't deserve it.

    Oh, and on the topic (;) ), I've managed to miss Vic Wooten at least 5 times, every one due to conflicts with my own gig schedule! :( One day, I really want to see him....I'm sure I'll quit afterwards! :D

    (Thankfully, you don't need chops and talent in such copious amounts to get gigs! :eek: )
  13. your gig with puente just sounds like something i'd like to see. i don't have enough exposure to *decent* latin music...
  14. To be very honest.. i'd love to see myself play live... </ego>
