I met this awesome man
I met this awesome man in San Diego when he played at Jazz By The Bay in Ocean Side, Ca. A friend who works for the jazz station in San Diego asked me if I wanted to go pick up Wayman at the train station and so I met him there. For the first time I seen the tallest bass neck ever. It was Wayman and I was introduced to him. He was just a normal man talking to me but I was so amazed. I was driving a 2007 Dodge Magnum and he liked it and made a comment "Wow you got that Magnum landed out". I will never forget that day. My wife and I went to the concert that night on my Harley playing Wayman all the way there and it was a perfect evening. Felt like Wayman was riding with us back to San Diego.
You will always be in my heart Wayman, I can't wait to see Wayman again. God Bless you my man your an inspiration to us musician. Peace.
