Aloha to all, a friend sent this to me earlier. A live interview on July 28. Bill is 103 1/2 and still going strong. Just amazing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Thanks for posting that. I've watched recently-taken (the past few years) videos of him on YouTube and I can only hope that I'm that engaged if I get anywhere near his age. I'd love to see him in concert!

He used to give bass lessons to my buddy up in Lafayette, CA. 30 years ago...when he was only 73...crazy he's still going, I found out about him again a couple years ago when we were talking and a Google search turned up his site! What a great story, thanks for the link!
