When are you going?
You'll have to fill me in on that for sure.
Been and returned...it is an online "school", with videos and lessons from various bassists, including the Dean himself of Funk Studies. I signed up on a whim, but they charge 30 bucks a month, and while interesting, it isn't really worth that for me, so I just went the first month. It was closer to being dues for a Bootsy Collins fanclub for me than an actual school!
There are a lot of bassists out there I admire, but in terms of guys I'd genuinely just like to hang out with, Mr. Collins seems one of those genuinely authentic nice guys out there. A friend of mine has an uncle in Cincinnati with a record shop, who met Bootsy in his shop, and just the fact that he dresses the way he does normally...not as a getup, or stage costume...well, he's a space alien, but a friendly, regular, day-to-day space alien, not a poseur.
