    Paul McCartney has been awarded the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, for his 2012 release ‘Kisses on the Bottom.’ The announcement was made prior to the show’s televised portion.

    This win brings McCartney’s career Grammy total to 16. ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ is an album largely comprised of lush cover versions of songs he enjoyed as a child, with guest appearances from Stevie Wonder and Eric Clapton. He performed the album’s lead single, ‘My Valentine,’ with help from Joe Walsh at last year’s Grammy Awards ceremony.

    Keiko had a chance to speak with Stuart during her visit to NAMM. Take it away, Keiko!

    KG: You've done a lot of NAMMs. This is my first NAMM. What do you like about NAMM? How is it for you?

    SH: It gives me a chance to catch up and see a lot of my musician friends that I haven't seen (in a while) and helps me make more contacts. It's a blast!

    If you haven't already, take the time to listen/watch Keiko's interviews from NAMM. She's talking one-on-one with the best bassists in the world, guys it would cost you $1000 an hour to get lessons from, and they're handing out free advice, tips, and info. You owe it to yourself to listen up. FYI, Keiko attended NAMM on her own dime so she could bring all this info and these interviews to the Row. Make it worth her while, give her a shout out.
    Thanks, Keiko!

    Gary Karr b. November 20, 1941 in Los Angeles, California, is an American classical double bass virtuoso and teacher.

    Although he comes from seven generations of bassists, he was not encouraged by them to go into music. In an interview with ActiveBass magazine he said that he has no contact with the professional bassists in his family.

    Without going into too many of the tedious details, some of Keiko's video interviews were just too massive in size to post for your enjoyment, so we have one video and two audio-only interviews. Still wonderful, for sure! We might be able to make the originals available later through DropBox, but we wanted to get the content ...

    Okay, Viewers! Here is Keiko's photo collection. This is not EVERYTHING she took, but mostly those pix related to bass.

    We'll probably make the whole thing available in ZIP files at a later date.

    The pic report can be seen on the Thunder Row Blog.

    Comments on the blog are moderated, but feel free to make 'em anyway. I'll come by later and approve them for yas!!

    Okay...next, we'll move on to her videos and Artist interviews! Stay tuned!!
