victor wooten freakin rocks
I totally agree. In fact, the whole band freakin rocks. I recently heard them for the first time (on 'Live at the Quick') and I was blown away. Bela's electric banjo playing is awesome and Victor performs feats beyond any other bassist's dreams. As for percussion - no other band even has a synth axe drumitar.
What do you think? Anything I should add to it? Dan 21:28, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
- Alright then, if there are no objections, I'll start adding it to the album/band member pages. Dan 15:56, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
Cuckoo's Nest: the film?Edit
Béla Fleck and the Flecktones and ModernismEdit
specifically, the term describes both a set of cultural tendencies and an array of associated cultural movements, originally arising from wide-scale and far-reaching changes to Western society in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
As such it is rarely if ever used to describe music. There may be things to say about innovation by the band but they would need to be supported by citations, and be noteworthy enough to distinguish them. The use of the term modernism in this respect can not be supported. Tallus (talk) 21:21, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
As of 2011, Future Man seems to have a brand new custom drumitar that is not SynthAxe-based. Could use an update to the history section to address this. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:29, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
I found these sources in the references section but...Edit
Ok, I found these in the references section. They weren't placed as inline citations; two are dead links, and the last two have real potential for use there in the text. Thanks. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 11:22, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
