I could not be more honoured to have been chosen as one of the bass players in this INCREDIBLE line up to receive a lifetime achievement award from Bass Player Magazine! Whaaaaat???!!! When they told me the news back in September that I would be included in their special December issue in both the UK and US, tears... When I am just "in it", into the music, striving to be a better player, hoping to remain interesting, relevant, inspiring to musicians and the language of music, I am not aware of the passing time. Receiving this recognition from my peers means so much, and has made me sit back and take stock in all of the blessed experiences I have had as a bass player and vocalist over the past 35+ years... I would not trade one moment of the amazing treasures that have graced my life because of the magic of music, and the joy it brings to our existence. Thank you, Joel McIver and all the staff at Bass Player Magazine UK who have been so wonderfully supportive of me throughout my career... and a special thanks to one of my all-time bass heroes and friend, the great Nathan East for his inspiration, and for reminding me where it all begins! 😃 ❤ ❤ #bassguitarmagazine #ernieball #ampegamps #musicmanstingray #labellastrings #mtdbass #nathaneast
