Wimbish on WimBash
Doug Wimbish is a bass player with an extraordinary resume. A key member of Living Colour and Tackhead, Doug has toured with Sugarhill Gang, Mick Jagger, Annie Lenox, Depeche Mode and many others. But Doug is much more than just a talented musician, he is a mentor, organizer, fund raiser and honorary uncle to dozens of up and coming performers.
Doug has organized community-based charity events around the world putting young bands on stage and raising money for music education. Doug calls the event the WimBash and thinks of it as a handshake with the next generation. Doug honors HIS elders by being the best elder that he can be.
When John and Stewart learned that Doug was organizing his 53rd WimBash this August 18th in New Haven Connecticut, they just had to get Doug into the club to learn about the genesis and history of the Wimbash.
