This is Greg Howard. He plays the Chapman Stick. I have known about this guy for a really long time, and I am not sure why I have not posted on him before, but here it goes. Better late than never I suppose. Anyhow, if you have never heard a Chapman Stick before check it out. I think it is a pretty cool instrument.
Here are a couple of cool videos:
He has a bunch of stuff on YouTube - as well as other players playing the stick.
Tony Levin (the bass player for Peter Gabriel, among others) has taken to this instrument in the last few years, but Greg, I think was one of the first, and in my opinion the best.
it is a wonderful (and addicting) site full of interviews, analyzations, comments on current trends, perspectives on those composers who have passed, links to historical articles and so on and so on. But be warned, the addicting part is absolutely true, it is a procrastinators paradise.
Lately this gem of saved music history has been floating around the email and blog world. Other people have posted it, but I thought I would as well, just in case someone misses it, and happens upon this blog. I think it is not only poignant for musicians, but perhaps there is some life advice in the words as well.
