All About Will Lydgate
Book Will for a Gig!

I liked the sign, and my shades.
Flamenco Music Production Class Group Shot
Looking for the Flamenco Groove, Amonos!
With Javier Limon, the right note is somewhere up here...
I didn't have anywhere to stand so I laid in front. I felt somewhat like the class mascot.
Annabelle and Will have fun

Me with Gabrielle Goodman and Yoron Israel at Steelgrass. I ate pork rinds in my cornflakes for 3 weeks to gain enough weight for this shot. I'm playing funky bass like a 260 lb. White man

Where's Willdo?
I make the peppah after I go mainland
D Mo in studio - My bass teacher, the one and only Danny Morris aka D MO playing my ’74 P bass through the Aguilar PreAmp, it never sounded better.
Here I am with Stephen Webber, Studio mentor and success guru, we are turning knobs and making it sound incredible!
Me and Stephen and Danny playing at the Darcel Wilson Berklee House Concert. Note Drummer Laurence Finn’s left hand playing a high ‘c’ during Danny’s solo.
Stephen, Sherry Young and Matthew Truss get down. All the expressions are great but I think Matthew wins this one for straight soul.
Merlyn Ruddle Joins the band for some dance steps at Steelgrass.
What more could you want, a soulful front line. We brought the fourth wall down right away for full communion with the audience.
The one and only Darcel flanked my Marty Walsh, drummer Larry Finn, Sherry Young and D Mo on keys in a baby blue polo.
I venture up the neck for a bass solo.
Success! All Smiles.
After a particularly Hott D Mo song, Danny gets a round of applause.
Music at its most expressive.
I trade tremolo licks with the master Marty Walsh, we had a nice bit going.
Go Berklee!, see Ellen LeClair, president of Kauai Concert Association holding up the berklee Pennet. Yeah!
Will and D play, I think I was looking inward, or maybe at a UFO out the sliding glass door.

Hot licks. In the alley outside Winston’s, Ocean Beach, San Diego. Winston’s has the best and loudest lowest bass I’ve ever heard. Best club for reggae.
Loverboy Will. Short hair, no beard.
Bass fingers, ’73 Jazz, rotary polo shirt in a green color everybody hates. Doesn’t go with anything....except this bass.
Big smile with SVT in St. Regis Ballroom after Yes Men, Donovon, Brett Dennen, G Love gig.
Will and Wavy Gravy, rainbow bridge teeth.

Best French Fries in S.L.O., but they are not French fries, they are Belgian frites, there is a difference.
Belle Frites AFTER
Great spot-light at Kirk Smart's History of Jazz show. Somehow I made it look like a rock show in this pic...
Those glasses plus the megatron KPAC style...

Annie’s uncle, Bill Murdoch. He just passed away. I am glad I got to meet him before he passed. He was a gem. I like this photo cuz it kinda looks like I snuck into an old folks home and just snapped a pic.
