Hey Marty,

I used to work with you @ Greenlane post MusicWorks merger about 8 years ago. I think you actually left that job to go work for HBA?

Not big on geography but saw this in the Bass Player wanted section: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=1432

Take it easy

My GP was the original Dudes bass player - spoke to him today in fact. We spend 2/3 of the appt time talking about musics and 1/3 about what's ailing me.
