    Look who I met today



    In case you don't know, that is THE Stanley Clarke. One of the world's greatest bass players.

    Never heard of him. Maybe because me and my friends were into lead.

    You therefore owe it to yourself to listen to some of Stanley Clarke's blistering bass solos.

    My buddy Jimmy would roll in his grave if he knew I had gone to the fat string side.

    I'll have to look him up on youtube.

    That's frakkin cool bassjones.

    Saw him solo in 80s at the Tralfamadore Cafe, shortly after meeting Jaco there... saw Return to Forever at Sony Center in 2008... and have tickets to see the new version of RTF with Frank Gambale and Jean Luc Ponty on 28 June.
    Stanley truly is The Man.
