Gilbert Rivera started his professional career at 14 years old, after playing with a group that seemed promising, the best thing ever happened, he got fired. Feeling down and out, a long time friend called him up and ask if he would like to play in a "soul" band but it would mean changing his instrument. Needing a gig he said yes.
Mr. Rivera states that playing the bass was of little challenge to him but when he had to learn bass riffs by the now famous James Jamerson he fell in love with the bass guitar. He quotes "He is the Main Man" and the influence for a lot of his own stuff.
