Awesome! nice job on the info!  Did he say anything about playing more than just the Bass?  And how he got involved with Ben?  Same with Lindsay.

Thanks again!

How did you end up collaborating with Ben?

I met Ben about three or four years ago through my good friend Marc Chevalier (Ben's previous sound engineer) and we would hang every once in a while. We all live in the same neighborhood so we would always see each other around. Last summer he saw me sitting in on bass with Lindsay's band (Astronaut Pushers) and called me the next day to get together and play. We jammed for a few days and it worked. Basically, I got real lucky.

I didn't get anything quote so specific from Lindsay because, y'know, it'd be boring had I asked them the same questions...

Thanks for posting that. That was very cool, indeed.

Yeah, the fact that Jared was considering quitting the music business was weird.  I heard that if he did, Ben was going to pick up Les Claypool.... ok.. maybe not, but he did do the Horde tour with them!
