Tony Levin

A very happy sixtieth birthday to Tony Levin today! Tony is one of my idols when it comes to musicians—the man is an incredible bassist—and many Chapman Stick players owe their picking up the instrument to him. I met Tony almost ten years ago in London, one of the true gentlemen of the music business.

Happy birthday Tony, here’s to many more.

  2. Quite right; link corrected, thanks Andy! :-) Ben Poole#
  3. I love the work that Tony did on the Liquid Tension Experiment cds. He kept up with the speed demons of John P and Jordan R really well. I was sad to see LTE go away, but I guess when Jordan joined DT it didnt matter much any more :)John Head#
