Bobby Vega is that good. Put-the-bass-away-work-at-the-gas- station good. Kenna Shaw, BadAssBassPlayer.com Aug 2009 Hold on to your hats! Are you listening? Here it goes... Bobby Vega is the worlds most insanely bad-ass bass player. You see what he does and sometimes the notes you hear and the movements he makes don't make sense. Then you ask yourself, "Self? How did he do that?" That's why he's Bobby Vega, and we aren't. Jim Dunlop Picks, USA September 2009
