Tony, thanks for all your great playing. I lost hope, that Peter will stop creating art with sound fragments and return from cyber-world to the human fragments and write natural songs again with flute and acoustic guitars .... maybe Ezrin will make a change? The best to you!
Munich, Germany - 07/26/09 18:06:05 CDT
Hi Tony! I wish your StickMen Trio will support Porcupine Tree even for the italian dates, I missed your recent tour (by the hell, you played near my home, in Taranto, but I missed the update!!!) and I read very enthusiastic reviews. So, c'mon!!!
- Monday, July 20, 2009 at 02:12:52 (EDT)
Hi Tony! Sure wish we could see you back in the NW again. When are you coming back? Someone stole my T-shirt from Papa Bear Records, and I was wondering if you still sell them? Thanks!
Portland, Or USA - Wednesday, July 15, 2009 at 20:26:12 (EDT)
Hi Tony! As a bassplayer I can't tell you how much I love you stylings and innovations!
When are you coming to the Toronto area? You could rock the Air Canada Centre under the CN Tower, with 100% Bryston audio. We'd love to see you up in Canada, eh? Take care!
Peterborough, Ont Canada - Tuesday, July 14, 2009 at 21:16:47 (EDT)

USA - Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 14:50:57 (EDT)
The Stick Men's Princeton show last night was perfect weather, incredible intimacy, and at once nostalgic for me and incredibly progressive. How can it be that I can hear a hundred other bands who've been influenced by your music and still feel like you're the one pushing the envelope, Tony?
Never been to Pettoranello before, got there early and discovered the site was so beautiful I had to sketch instead of reading the book I'd brought. (Thanks for autographing the tent, haha!) During the show I was mesmerized by little details, and when I wasn't totally lost in the sound, I captured a few more in my book. That show was one to remember in as many ways as I can! Infinitely glad you drove down to gift us with such a great concert.
All the best to you, Pat, and Michael.
Wilmington, DE USA - Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 02:41:15 (EDT)
Wonderful show in Princeton, NJ.
Under The Stars and Moon.
Bull Frogs and Fireflies.
In addition to Lily Neill opening and a very polite audience,
made it a very special evening.
Always amazed by the musical performance The Stickmen offer. Waiting for the next recording to arrive. The new song you played was beautiful.
Thank you very much for doing this show.
clifton, NJ - Saturday, June 27, 2009 at 21:56:16 (EDT)
Tony, I was at the Natick show last night and you guys certainly BRING IT live! I definitely hope to see you guys again soon! How about a NH show next time around?
Also, thank you for being so gracious with your time after the show, my buddy and I really appreciated it!
Manchester, NH - Friday, June 26, 2009 at 14:59:18 (EDT)
Tony - It was great to finally meet you after all these years of listening to your music. The show at the Bearsville Theatre was INSANE. The most amazing thing was that my kids (Afro Man and Bass Babe!) were completely blown away...and I thought they were ruined for good stuff! Thanks for an amazing night...OH...BTW...that dual drumming on InDiscipline is STILL in my head!
New Paltz, NY - Monday, June 22, 2009 at 15:29:28 (EDT)
great show last evening! love the 'stickmen' cd- always appreciate the crimson moments, too! Bill
west shokan, ny - Monday, June 22, 2009 at 13:17:41 (EDT)
Tony...what a great show last night! My son brought me to the show for Father's Day. I could not have asked for a better gift. "Three" was fantastic and of course Stickmen just blew us away. Looking forward to a cd release.
Pine Bush, NY USA - Monday, June 22, 2009 at 01:22:30 (EDT)
Thanks for coming to The Tralf last night. Very good show, and I really liked the new material. Cannot wait for the CD. Very glad there are musicians like you guys doing music like this.
Buffalo, NY US - Sunday, June 21, 2009 at 06:05:24 (EDT)
Tony, As usual, your shows at The Tralf are a blast. It looked like you guys had a lot of fun. The new stuff sounded intense. I would like to thank you for the genuine willingness to always shake hands and sign something or pose for a pic. As you guys can tell,.it means alot to many, especially other musicians. Have fun the rest of the tour.
Buffalo, NY United States - Sunday, June 21, 2009 at 05:28:06 (EDT)
Thanks for another fun filled performance! I have now seen 4 very intimate shows with you in very different groups. Last night at the lost horizon was a special one. At one point you sad Gee you will accept anything. It's because we are starving for good shows to come to town. I get to see your former band mates in Albany next month, Dream Theater double bill with Zappa plays Zappa.
Keep up the Fun stuff!
Syracuse, - Saturday, June 20, 2009 at 15:01:38 (EDT)
Tony - saw Stickmen last night at the Lost Horizon in Syracuse - you guys were incredible!!! Hope to see you guys back in Syracuse some time down the road ... hope the tour goes well!
syracuse, NY - Saturday, June 20, 2009 at 13:55:27 (EDT)
Hey Tony, I enjoyed the show at the lost horizon. I was especially pleased that you and your band seemed to enjoy it. I was happy to be a part of it. I feel badly more people didnt show for you guys : ( However those who did loved it . This town is a bit fickle with the music scene. I say The Stickmen were just what the doctor ordered. Thanks for coming and being a great personable guy :) All my best in all you do
Syracuse, NY USA - Saturday, June 20, 2009 at 12:38:34 (EDT)

Hi Tony...was wondering if you ever run into Happy Rhodes there in upstate NY? I just "discovered" her and seems she's a fan as well! When will I see you on Twitter?
Toronto, Canada - Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 12:21:49 (EDT)
I am a Tuba player and has always been a fan of your bass lines and was wondering if you could give me some hints on how to play the bass line solo in Excuse Me.
My parents have seen you play with PG several times and they really enjoy watching you perform.
USA - Sunday, June 14, 2009 at 00:45:32 (EDT)
My wife and I saw you last night in Pawling with the CGT. We loved the show. I last saw you play in Middletown, NY with Murali Coryell at the Corner Stage, so it's been awhile. But you're great, thank you for the music.
Pine Bush, NY USA - Sunday, June 14, 2009 at 00:04:24 (EDT)
I hoped you liked the write up on BestofWNY.com.
We've had a great response and we are promoting the heck out of the show. See you in Buffalo
Buffalo, NY USA - Thursday, June 11, 2009 at 03:42:34 (EDT)
Looking foward to seeing you in Princeton, NJ on 6/27. Can you tell us what time the show starts?
Frenchtown, NJ - Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 01:46:41 (EDT)
Hey - Tour Boy! How about the rest of the country? The Sun may rise in the Northeast, but it sets in the Southwest. How about some dates in Ca, Az, Nv, NM? Stickmen, KC, Peter, whatever. Bring some version of your act to Phoenix or 500 miles thereof.

Was watching the Growing Up Live dvds some nights back and noticed you use sticks to play the bass at times. What are they and do you sell them?
Like your nice melodic groove and do you use a musicman bass predominantly?
Any chance of playing in Perth, Australia?
Applecross, WA Australia - Thursday, June 04, 2009 at 19:05:52 (EDT)
Hi Tony, I have a couple quick questions:
1. Have you ever considered an instruction disc on the stick? I'm really intrigued by the instrument and thinking of getting one.
2. What are the chances of Stickmen playing Austin? I mean Pat lives there and Tx fans need some love...
Dallas, TX US - Wednesday, June 03, 2009 at 10:35:25 (EDT)

Leiden, ZH Netherlands - Monday, May 18, 2009 at 02:55:19 (EDT)
Great Performance yesterday in Zoetermeer!
Is good to see how three perfect musicians, can make so much fun and noises.
Especially the various sounds (itching and scratching) coming out of your Sticks amazed me.
But also Pat's Sticksounds on the drums were fabuleus en colorfull.
Looking forward to the next Stickmen CD or gig in the (near?) future...
Hoogvliet, The Netherlands - Sunday, May 17, 2009 at 20:23:06 (EDT)

With a smile on my face...

Marvellous show in Substage! By chance I was in Stuttgart and with first opprtunity rushed to Karlsruhe (if you saw a guy with big camera in the first lines, it's me :)). Thank you very much for the wonderful music, your bandmates are great!
Please, do come to Russia more often!
Russia - Saturday, May 16, 2009 at 01:13:54 (EDT)
Hi there Stickmen,
thank you very much for a nice evening of inspiring and experimental music. It was fun to see you guys having fun on stage yesterday at the Blues Garage in Isernhagen.
Hope to see you soon, maybe on the upcoming Porcupine Tree tour in autumn.
Thanks again and best wishes for the ongoing tour,
Hannover, - Friday, May 15, 2009 at 23:14:26 (EDT)
Fantastic diary memories from the '90s, Tony! I got only halfway through ... gonna finish later. But very enjoyable. I was at the Crim Merriwether Post Pavilion concert in '96 ... remember it well ... EASILY in my Top 10 concerts (that I've attended) of all time. Rock on.
Gaithersburg, MD USA - Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 12:22:22 (EDT)

Hi there! Thanks very much for the interesting and special evening of innovative music yesterday. It was my 35th birthday and this gig was the perfect program for that evening. Me I'm a drummer and that's why I was so happy to find a drumhead with all your signatures on it. I'm surely also looking forward to hear and see you Tony with P.G. in the next time...
Wiesbaden, Germany - Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at 03:12:55 (EDT)

Budapest, Hungary - Tuesday, May 05, 2009 at 19:50:46 (EDT)
Oddly enough, I can vividly recall reading those old road diaries, often late at night, feeding one of the babies... You offer a truly unique and always interesting perspective. Thanks again for doing it (& the music!) all these years.

Ottawa, Canada - Tuesday, May 05, 2009 at 15:43:35 (EDT)
congratulations on your anniversary! many happy returns of the day (year, decade, whatever).
grafton, ma usa - Tuesday, May 05, 2009 at 09:09:32 (EDT)
Thanks for the vintage road diary pages ! At the time you started your chronicles from the road I didn't have a computer yet, so it's been interesting and amusing reading of some events I attended(KC italian tour 1996,DGM gathering in London in 1997)but I wasn't able to read your comments about them.
Yes, the KC date in Pisa was incredibly beautiful, I have such happy memories of that night, the location, Piazza dei Cavalieri,was stunning, you had the stage just in front of the ancient University building,so beautiful.
I'd like to mention also the after-concert surprise I had, when, walking back to the parking lot I suddendly found you chatting with some fans,just outside the restaurant where you had dinner, and how thrilled I was, and then the rest of the band (minus R.Fripp,of course) came out and I nearly had a heartache for the happiness, what a night !
You should have written of this stupid one, in your odd events list, who kept on yelling "Tony Levin, Tony Levin!"in the middle of the road,in Pisa.... I still get ashamed about it, but this is to be a genuine fan.
Have a great time while touring Europe, Mr.Levin !
Prato, Italy - Tuesday, May 05, 2009 at 04:17:10 (EDT)
¡Great stick men gig last night in Madrid!
It started with some sound problems, but it didn't appear to affect the great vibe of the band. Some tunes from "Stickman", some great KC moments (I dont wanna ruin any surprises here for next gig's audiences), incredible grooves an a lot of humour. Tony, Pat and Michael are a brilliant team.
I hope they come back to Madrid soon.
Zanx for a great night. Monday mornnig now... still with a smile in my face.
Madrid, Spain - Sunday, May 03, 2009 at 19:35:17 (EDT)
You have to be one of the most brilliant interpreters I have seen, besides being an all around solid bassist. It really comes home to me when I see you playing old school jazz for the folks, and then smacking it in the arse closer to the witching hour. What a force.
- Sunday, May 03, 2009 at 10:46:49 (EDT)
Thanks Tony for the great night in Madrid, it was incredible! Everytime I listenen to you, I'm in heaven... great show, great music

Hi Tony! I just bought your "Resonator" cd, and I am really amazed, terrific songwriting, great use of funk fingers. Your work through the years has been amazingly good, with the stick and with the bass, I congratulate you on everything you done. I really hope I will see you in Croatia soon, I know it is a backwater country but it would be awesome if you just came...
Zagreb, Croatia - Wednesday, April 29, 2009 at 07:27:09 (EDT)

Rochester, NY USA - Wednesday, April 29, 2009 at 05:51:18 (EDT)
Hi Tony, great to see all the updates of what you're doing...as always! Do you think you might go back and fill in some of the "missing" Crimson anniversary dates from last year? I'm sure some of us that were there on the nights that never made it up there would love to see the pics!

Hi Tony, thanks for posting all the videos and pics from Buenos Aires! It is very nourishing to connect with the process of making and performing Peter's great music. It makes it much more human.
I have been lived abroad and for many years and wasn't able to get to BA, but got the official recording of the show from Peter's website.
Peace and Rock & Roll!

Kazan, Russia - Monday, April 13, 2009 at 00:08:06 (EDT)
Good to see you are out on the road with the Stick Men soon who I would have loved to see but really sad that you haven't managed to squeeze in at least one date in the UK.
Is the cost of touring too expensive here for you to simply make it happen as several of my other favourite artisits seem to skirt around England without visiting
Have just ordered the last concert date of the Peter Gabriel tour, can't wait to hear it
Higham Ferrers, ants United Kingdom - Sunday, April 12, 2009 at 10:55:26 (EDT)

Our PG tour of South America was great fun, and had thrilling audiences. Of course I hope Peter tours more in the coming year - but there are no plans for that at this time.
I WILL try to come to South America with my own band, though, when I can get the bookings. The band is Stick Men, with King Crimson's drummer Pat Mastelotto, and two Stick players; Michael Bernier and myself.
We're about to tour Europe, then will do some U.S. shows in June, and there is another Europe tour hovering for the Fall -- after that, I'm hoping we can fly South!
Saturday, April 11, 2009
Thanks for what you have given us, your contribution to music and your good sense of humor, your funny videos and your outstanding pictures, your live performances, your creativity. I saw you in PG's Santiago Concert and you were all great! I hope to see you again with your band or KC...just a dream.

TONY LEVIN RULES !!!!!!

Tony, thanks so much for an amazing show in Monterrey. I flew from the States to finally see a concert and was blown away - you guys were incredible. If there is any more BassCam of Monterrey, please please post - I love reliving the night, and I have worn out the Sledge footage!
USA - Tuesday, April 07, 2009 at 10:27:56 (EDT)
Wow. I love your site. Please keep posting. I've been listening to your work on the WallE track "Down to Earth." And like your other work, it is incredibly tasteful and deceptively simple. Can't stop listening to it. LOVE IT! Thank you!
Orlando, FL USA - Tuesday, April 07, 2009 at 02:35:22 (EDT)
Hey man, the first time I heard the way you play, it was in King Crimson, playing bass and stick bass, when it includes clinics and concerts in PERU ... thanks
Hey listen to my music on you tube ... my ex-band cosmo root... i play with U
LIMA, lima PERU - Tuesday, April 07, 2009 at 02:24:52 (EDT)
Thanks so much for this tour diary. It was great to keep up on the tour, and after the concert in Monterrey (wow) we eagerly anticipated seeing what you'd put up from that show. It was worth flying in from Arkansas for the concert. For us, it was a dream of many years fulfilled.
USA - Monday, April 06, 2009 at 01:36:41 (EDT)
I give you a lot of thanks for to come to Mexico with Peter and play's music. I admire you a lot because you play excellent the bass guitar and stick like no one else. I had the opportunity to chat with you in the lobby of President Hotel in your last tour Growing Up with Peter Gabfriel. I wish to have contact with you and Peter Gabriel because I love your music. I'm a physician a traumatology and orthopedic surgeon. The sellection of the song in the concert of Mexico City was wonderful. I hope that you return soon to Mexico with King Crimson or with your own band.

I just wanted to say thank you to Tony for being such a nice person. I was in Mexico City on business, staying at the same hotel as he and the band and I approached him in the hotel lobby and he was nice enough to take time from his day off, to talk to me about their show the night before (I was not fortunate to attend). We also talked about the show with Crimson last year in Chicago which I attended and was amazing. He was also kind enough to take a picture with me. Again, thank you Tony.

An absolutely amazing show you guys put in Monterrey. Congratulations and looking forward to your pictures. Hope you come back soon, specially with Stick Men.

Monterrey, NL Mexico - Thursday, April 02, 2009 at 12:39:20 (EDT)
I've listened to you and studied your bass playing for years. You keep improving over time. You've truly been a primary music influence to me.
I've hoped for quite a while now that I might be able to hire you for a session sometime.
I have a bunch of pop/ballad & traditional r&r tunes I (Still) have not shopped. I need to publish them soon.
If I can contact you to inquire more about whether or not this would even be possible, I would greatly appreciate it.
Either way, thanks again for the inspiration.

the concert that you made in Lima Peru on march 20, 2009 was extraordinary. I have waited all my life to see you and Peter Gabriel playing alive.

I saw you had the bass-cam on during "In Your Eyes", right? Will we see the video later on? Once again, thank you for all your great music and thanks for being such a great guy!
Mexico City, Mexico - Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 07:41:28 (EDT)
Tony I haved to wait 16 years to finally hear you in concert. When concerts came back to México a friend of mine buy me a ticket for Peter's Gabriel first presentation in the country, unfortunately I didn't have money then he sold my ticket. I wasn't close to DF when you got these other shows with PG and King Crimson (I went to Crimson's show at Metropolitan in DF but you wasn't part of that lineup. Anyway it was magical). But now, 16 years later I was at Foro Sol to hear you and it was amazing. I felt like a child in his first concert. You wont be able to understand the way it was. My bass hero on the stage. The amazing playlist with songs from Car. Thanks a lot. I will remember this for the rest of my life.

Tony, Thanks for posting the great pics and video from the SoAm tour. I must admit that I am thinking seriously of making a trip there after seeing how beautiful a place it is. Never was on my list of "must see" places, but now it is. I'll keep checking back for updates.

Tony - the "how to pack for the Amazon" video that you made is a TOTAL RIOT! Absolutely fabulous! You seem like a normal guy with a good sense of humor ... I get the impression that Adrian Belew is normal with a good sense of humor. I bet you two get along well. More videos, please.

Very cool stuff. We're going to the concert in Monterrey, Mexico, though we live in Arkansas U.S.A. Seeing Peter Gabriel and his longtime bass-plating compadre (Senor Levin) has been a decades-long dream of ours. Thanks for helping us keep track of the tour in such a great way.
Siloam Springs, AR U.S.A. - Tuesday, March 24, 2009 at 08:29:24 (EDT)
What can I say? Some years ago I was looking for some Crimson stuff when I found your diary on the net with all the photos and storys about almost every activity your´re musicly involved in and since then I´m checking your page constantly at least once a week and I thought it couldn´t get any better. And now this. A Tony Levin Chanel on YouTube. And a basscam. How great is this? Just thanks for sharing your life as a musician with us and I´m looking forward seeing you in Hamburg in May with Stickman.
Hamburg, Germany - Tuesday, March 24, 2009 at 07:18:07 (EDT)
Muchas gracias!!! Thank you very very much for the show in Buenos Aires! It was the first time I saw to Peter, and I really love his music, and of course, to all of you. It was amazing! Thanks for de basscan videos and the pictures! And for all the music you give us!
Buenos Aires, Argentina - Tuesday, March 24, 2009 at 06:43:01 (EDT)
BassCam now?? How do you find the time to do all you do? Amazing multitasking WHILE being a bass monster!
USA - Tuesday, March 24, 2009 at 05:13:17 (EDT)
Awesome page, I find the info you post about the pre-prod of the gig/tour as well as the "musician's live on the road" even more fascinating than the show itself.
You should post a pict of the basscam, how is it fastened ?
Mexico City, Mexico - Tuesday, March 24, 2009 at 04:27:25 (EDT)
Tony! You are a Master! It was amazing to saw you and Peter last night! It was for me one of the best performance I've ever seen!

Greetings Tony! I recently got a copy of the latest from True Nature! Really impressed me. You sounded great on there. I hope they will be doing an entire CD and that you will continue to be their bassist! I look forward to catching you with them on tour at some point. What's in the works for that association to continue??? Peace!
Mechanicsville, VA USA - Monday, March 23, 2009 at 02:42:30 (EDT)

Caracas , Venezuela - Sunday, March 22, 2009 at 08:39:14 (EDT)
Dear Levin. I don't have words to thank you for posting so much interesting information about the tour of Latin America. I was at the concert in Caracas, I traveled 16 hours by bus to hear you. The previous days I was checking your page daily for more details. I hoped with excitement and joy several things: 1 - the new light! you are evil!, you just showed us the equipment and I was dying of curiosity to know the use, I looked on the stage but it was hidden under the floor and I immediately identified as Peter Gabriel used it. 2 - I saw the Spanish dictionary as I thought it was Gabriel's keyboard . Do not you imagine the excitement that this caused me, was looking forward to hear some words in Spanish, but my surprise was even greater when I saw that he prepared the introduction to all the songs in Spanish. This is a beautiful detail that I'm going to thank you my entire life. 3 - The new song, Melanie's song was new, but two others I did not recognize, create new music for us is a privilege, thank you once again.
Thank you for creating my spectators with the details published to your page, it was a great strategy to make me enjoy the concert much more. See all the work and the love you put into your work is indescribable, wonderful is not enough to describe it.
Oops, I have not submitted, I think the most important thing I can say is that I hear you when I was in the womb of my mother (30 years ago), my father pursued during your pregnancy so that I heard in there, I have followed since then, I know all the songs, such as dance, dress like, like ... Thousands of things, and I enjoyed every minute of this wonderful concert, I had never before heard you live and feared that not happen ever, thanks to incorporate Venezuela into the itinerary.
Mérida, Merida Venezuela - Sunday, March 22, 2009 at 07:14:37 (EDT)
Excellent Show!!! An Incredible And Awesome Experience!!! Thaks a lot to make it possible... I Think the selection of Songs was simply excellent.... the right ones... all it was perfect...
P.S. We met back in the Hotel (i'm still floating since them), me and my father... i hope you can find a beer, Jejejeje, I don't Know if you remember us, but for we it was an amazing experience, i'm the one who recomended you go sheltered because Santana plays there the last week and they said it was cold there.... (i would found a way to sent you the picture we take with you) Thak's A Lot!!! i really hope we don't need to wait another 16 years for seening you back here in Venezuela!!! Thanks Again!!!
Pampatar, Nueva Esparta Venezuela - Friday, March 20, 2009 at 11:30:47 (EDT)
Hello Mr. Levin! I'm still dreaming about the Caracas concert, it was really amazing. I was waiting that moment since the World Secret Tour in 1993, I had 15 years old then xD.
Caracas, Venezuela - Friday, March 20, 2009 at 07:23:11 (EDT)
Good day Mr. Levin. Any thoughts on selling some of your awesome pictures? Or can we just copy them from your website? Any plans in the pipes to release the sessions in Tokyo with Mssrs. Bozzio, Holdsworth and Mastelotto? Please! I'm begging now. My knees hurt.
Keep up the great work musically and websically.

WOW !! Great show last night in Caracas...wonderful sound and excellent set list..
What about asking Peter to pls sing the first 4 lines of Dancing with the Moonlit Knight (a capella) in the next concert venues just before one of the songs that are not introduced in spanish ?? That would be a nice and widely comented surprise and will enlighten many hearts...
Caracas, Venezuela - Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 01:08:48 (EDT)

Hi, Bass King!
I don't know how you know about Peter plans making some covers. He asks a little help on his site. We suggested him a King Crimson track. We can imagine "Waiting Man" with his singing voice. See you soon in Hungary!
Budapest, Hungary - Monday, March 16, 2009 at 21:12:30 (EDT)
Wish there was a recording of the Japan shows with Bozzio & Holdsworth!! An interesting mix of great players. Tell Peter we want more time for the band to do some instrumental stuff that "kicks" in the live shows!
USA - Monday, March 16, 2009 at 17:53:30 (EDT)
Tony, Loved what you did on Yes Union. You put some teeth back into the bass sound for Yes. Why the heck didn't they put your name up front? The songs you played on are some of my favorite of that period. Thanks so much.

Hi Tony, thanx for coming to Lima, Peru with Peter Gabriel... if the band can play just one Genesis song (maybe Carpet Crawlers, I Know What I Like, or Lamb Lies Down On Broadway), it will be the icing on the cake! See you next friday!

A link to the coffee page of your site was posted on HomeBarista.com
My traveling companions are a vintage KYM manual grinder, and a 1981 Olympia Cremina lever.

Enjoyed your music these years, especially your application of the Chapman Stick.
I visited Emmett's place many times, but as a keyboard guy, felt lost on it. Obviously your weren't.

Dear Tony, now I'm listening to "CG3+2". It's an excellent piece of instrumental music, especially your version of "Heart of the Sunrise". The bass line is so powerful. Best regards!

I'll be thinking about you all
I listened to a live version of "STEAM" by Peter Gabriel on YouTube - the bass stood out as deep, clear and very appropriate to the song. So good I looked this guy up. Some kind of stick bass. I'm no expert on music - no training at all - but have
a good ear; this fellow is a superb bass player.

An indescribable inspiration to my view.
Ever a chance of an equipment list?
Or, your most common signal path's?
So many notes, Easy to tell which one's are yours.
Distinctive to you.
Congratulations on the Grammy (Down to Earth)! Next up, Oscar!
