The One and Only Victor Wooten

Brendan’s guest for our season one finale is the one and only Victor Wooten. A five-time Grammy winner, Wooten hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours. Among other things, he is a husband and father, a teacher, a published author, a magician and acrobat, and has won every major award given to a bass guitarist including being voted Bassist of the Year in Bass Player Magazine's readers poll three times (the only person to win it more than once). In 2011, Rolling Stone Magazine voted Victor one of the Top Ten Bassists of ALL TIME.
