Victor Wooten 2016 Commencement Speech at the University of Vermont Rubenstein School

You don't have to watch all 24 minutes of a commencement speech, but there's a chance if you start watching this one, you'll stick around. To find out, it's not about how good he is. It's about who he is.

"I always felt that music is a good way to address the world's issues. To be in a band, the best bands I've ever played in, all the instruments are different. And we don't curse those differences, we bless them.

"That's why I think the whole world should learn to play music. Then we might understand that differences are a blessing, not a curse."

Well, now I love Vic even more.

He certainly has his shit together... for a bassman.

I wonder if he has that attitude because he's rich and famous, or he's rich and famous because of his attitude?
Everything is interesting... look closer.
