    I thought about putting this in the Off Topic area, but decided we should send it to the front page.

    Brie, the daughter of TLD owners, David and Barb Crossman, has been taken to the hospital with what looks to be Spinal Meningitis. The confirmation of the diagnosis is still pending, but while we wait to hear, why don't we all take a moment to offer up all the good vibes and prayers for her safety, health, and for the well-being of the entire family.

    Have you read Stanton Lawrence's latest product review? Here's an excerpt:

    "The Fender Fatfinger Bass Sustain Enhancer "Instantly add more sustain and awe-inspiring tone to your instrument with the Fender Fatfinger. By clamping the Fatfinger on the headstock of you instrument it will enhance the overall tone and note-to-note response of any electric or acoustic guitar or bass", at least thatís what the packaging claims.

    Bassplayer.com features a tutorial on Jack Bruce's British Blues. Here's an excerpt:

    "WHILE EXAMINING THE WORK OF GREAT BLUES BASSISTS of the past, letís not forget our brethren from across the pond, in particular, the contributions of British blues players. The influence of American blues on the U.K. music scene was pivotal in the development of rock & roll; virtually every famous British rock band got its start by copping tunes by Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon, as well as the first wave of American rockers such as Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley."

    We often mention that members of the TMBG Band are top-flite Nashville studio musicians. To prove the point, here's an excerpt from a track called Deep Blue Grass from keyboardist Tim McDonald's album Tim McDonald II. On stand-up (double) bass? Roy Vogt, for those of you who've been asking to hear him 'slap the heavyweight'.
