My Fave - Roy Vogt
« on: November 02, 2009, 11:10:07 AM »
I vote for Vogt, not only because he's an awesome player with an extremely varied and interesting career, and not just because he's such an outstanding educator. It's also because he has given so much back to the Bass community. He spent so much time helping other bass players in so many ways.

Over the past several days, we had a lot of time to talk about what he wants to do in the future. For now, suffice to say he wants to do even more.

So... my favorite bass player is Roy Vogt. It's an honor to call him a good friend.

There have been too many over the years to put it all down to one favorite. Even to name those who I think have had the most influence on my own playing would require a list. Then, to name those who I love to listen to would take too much room here!

OK. I've decide on one. Most of you won't have heard of him since he was never a household name. Lane may remember him as one of the greatest bass players to grace the stages of the greater DC area. His name is Wade Mathews and he passed away a couple of years ago. First, he was always a step ahead of the whole world. There is nothing that man couldn't play and both blow your mind and put a huge smile on your face while doing it!
Wade, you were a HUGE loss to us on this plane, but I'm sure you were greatly welcomed into the big jam in the sky!!

Wade Mathews, rest in peace.

Now, there's a name I remember, and RESPECT!

+1 on everything you said about him, Andre.
