Elliott Smith and Conor Oberst.

/willl think of a real list later.

PaperHurricanesAndPlanes 03-04-2007 03:33 AM

I don't think I've heard any of those songs. Maybe in a movie when I wasn't paying attention. However, I think he had a guest appearance on a Wooten album. You should check him out if you don't know him.

littleknowitall 03-04-2007 11:59 AM

Who? woten? ho hasn't head of wooten, the guy's a genius.

PaperHurricanesAndPlanes 03-04-2007 03:31 PM

No Jamerson. And I've heard of him. Just not heard him. Although when I was little I listened to a lot of Stevie Wonder, so I might've heard him.

Laces Out Dan! 03-04-2007 03:38 PM

Geddy Lee
Victor Wooten
But mostly Geddy Lee

right-track 03-04-2007 04:50 PM

Jamerson influenced Wooten and even Geddy Lee admires Jamerson's brilliance.

PaperHurricanesAndPlanes...I can't believe you haven't heard of those songs I listed.

*hopes that's what he was banned for*
