Juan Nelson, bass player for Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, passed away on Wednesday. Juan was an amazing bass player with a big heart & groove. When he wasn't on the road, he played in my casino band for the last 4 years. Like a lot of people in his life, I'm shattered. Such a great guy...
... we might have to wear masks for a while.
I've had a steady casino gig for the last 18 years. Can't wait to get back, but until we have a vaccine, masks aren't such a bad idea. It's gonna suck to be a singer.
How many of you are following Tom Bukovac's new prodigious YouTube channel? He's put out a bunch of videos in the last three weeks. What a talent. I love it when he performs with his wife Sarah Buxton.
I met Buddy about 5 years ago in Nashville through a mutual friend. It was one of those rare times when meeting your hero exceeds your expectations. He was a sweetheart. And, more importantly, he jammed with Richard Thompson. It was a great night...
I thought I'd start this thread to talk about playing modern dance music. I play mostly casinos or corporate gigs.
I just got an INCREDIBLE female lead singer. Having a blast playing Rhianna & Beyonce, Katy Perry & Sade. Who else is out there making the girls dance?
What songs are killin' it...
I'm a huge Kyuss fan & a friend of Scott Reeder so it's been awesome to watch his triumphant return to Kyuss. It's only a four gig run but wow!!! The man is one of the most underrated bass players in metal.
Can't wait. I'll be there... as usual. BTW Porcupine Tree on Saturday!!
