And this years lineup is our heaviest yet. When it comes to hard rock bass playing, Geezer Butler wrote the book. That he continues to perform with every bit the raw intensity of his early days in Black Sabbath is an inspiration for players of all ages and all styles. With the Stray Cats, Lee Rocker took the upright bassalready one of the coolest instruments everand somehow made it even more hip, slapping the snot out of it to codify the sound of rockabilly bass. To our ears, Tal Wilkenfeld personifies the bright future of rock bass. From her work with Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock, and Joe Walsh to her fleet-fingered solo work, Tals refreshing fusion of jazz, soul, funk, and rock is something weve had our ears and eyes on for a long time now. Were thrilled and honored to have these three artists anchor an evening of amazing performances.</p><p>The daily schedule of clinics &amp; panels is as follows (subject to change):</p><p>Saturday, November 910:30-11:30 AMRoom A: David Ellefson (Megadeth) &amp; Frank Bello (Anthrax)Room B: Carlos Del Puerto, Jr. (Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Chris Botti)</p><p>12:30-1:30 PMRoom A: Lee Rocker (with guest guitarist Buzz Campbell)Room B: Billy Sheehan (Winery Dogs, solo artist)</p><p>2:30-3:30 PMRoom A: Michael Manring (solo artist)Room B: Artists to be announced soon</p><p>4:30-5:30 PMRoom A: Changing Face of L.A.
