bass idol

I'm an avid fan of John's approach to bass playing and because of that, took up the instrument about nineteen years ago and subsequently learned all his lines. I also have a bass signed by him but sadly wasn't able to meet him when it was done. I was wondering if it is a common thing for him to hear...that his fans have adopted his style of playing and learned his lines. He has, in fact, been a very affecting absentee mentor. Hope you're able to tell him that. Much love and respect, Traci

"That's very kind of you to say so, the compliment is appreciated. When I hear the bass lines of my idols, Bernard Edwards, James Jamerson, Paul McCartney, they blow my mind. I cannot imagine life without them. If the feeling you get is anything like what I get from those guys- well, I'm just glad to be of service!! J "
