    Enjoyed this video. "Jaco isn't really dead...he'll be kicking' people's asses for centuries". Also, Lee mentioned his first hearing Jaco (Bobbing' s tape)...and he wasn't ready. One needs to take it slow with Jaco is Lee's advice. Great impression & description of Wayne Cochrane, too!

    Funny, I was watching that and I realized that I had subconsciously solo'd my bridge pickup and rolled off the tone knob- not the way I usually play my jazz bass at all.

    That's a great interview and Will Lee knows he is talking s--t, the dude is sounding all humble while it is clear he has studied Jaco, and literally knows his stuff cold. The truth is that Lee did not need to listen to Jaco early on because he already had his own voice, and it is a brilliant voice indeed.

    This is a touching clip of Will Lee talking about Hiram Bullock. He makes me think of Nile Rodgers talking about Bernard Edwards.

    I'll always remember seeing the 24th Band and those two running all around the place, amazing energy!

    Thanks for the link! Highly entertaining.

    One of my favorite living bass players opening up and being very informative about one of my all time favorite bass players. Great stuff.

    Was that one of Jaco's basses that he is playing?

    ...looks like one of Fender's "relic" Jaco basses; IIRC, they also made a fretted version. Doesn't Geddy Lee has one of each? Seem to recall a somewhat recent interview in Bass Player mag with a breakdown of his touring basses...
