Title: A couple of Bruce Interviews

Bruce seems to be popping up for interviews a bit more than usual. Here are two that showed up in my Google alerts today.

Clearly the Nuvo guy got an old press kit or something, mentioning that Randell Kirsche will be in the band.

In the second article there's a cool picture of Bruce with a Hofner bass. I've seen Carl and Al with them, but never Bruce.

That bass is an Eko 995 violin bass, the model Bruce is shown with has the round pickup magnets/polepieces where others have rectangular magnets.

Two great interviews, thanks for sharing. I have never seen that picture of Bruce with the bass, either. Groovy stuff. :)
