Trace Bundy, totally unassuming, totally down to earth
It's not to say that I go watch a lot of live music performances but until last Saturday, I've never known of any musician that would be polite enough to stand up and greet each and every one of his fans with some small talk during the autograph-signing session.
So meet Trace Bundy, a 36-year-old American guitarist with amazing finger-tapping skills. Bundy was in Penang last Saturday evening (16 Nov 2013) to conclude his latest Asian tour: a tour that had taken him to China, Korea, Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
His ever willingness to pose with his fans in photographs was already so clear to us as my wife and I lined up patiently to await our turn. And after he had autographed our compact discs, he stood up and there we were, asking people to snap away with our camera.
Much earlier during his concert in the Wawasan Open University auditorium in Northam Road, George Town, he took this picture of the audience. Peer closer and we can be seen in the fourth row. Unfortunately, my hand had happened to cover somebody else's view of the stage. Oops! I don't know who was that, but sorry to him for missing out on this massive moment. :-)
