our ‘dreams can come true file’
In our previous issue we ran a story with Tim Bogert, bassist for 60’s/70’s band Vanilla Fudge. It turns out that the gentleman that designs the sites for for Tim, and Fudge lead guitarist Vince Martell, has found himself in a dream gig.
Long an admirer of Fudge, Pete Bremy originally worked on a Vanilla Fudge site where he was ultimately contacted by individual members of the band, who later collectively made his their official site. They hit if off so well, he ended up constructing a site for Tim and later for Vince. The kicker is that now is he bassist for Vince Martell, the guitarist for the Fudge. On top of all this, he even gets to play bass in live gigs with Vinny, covering some of the old songs that he spent so many hours listening to just as a fan. Just goes to show you that life can definitely be much stranger than fiction! Next issue we will be speaking to Pete about this amazing turn of events as well as his work with Vinny today.
