Topic: Another Top 5: Bass Players
So who do you want in the pocket with you when you're a Big Rawk Star?
This week, in no particular order...
Victor Wooten - Good enough for Bella, good enough for me. And, well, he can do this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vdJvHE8qxA
Charles Mingus - Legend that played with the legends. Dude is so smooth he doesn't walk, he glides. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zOlv-BAx-8
Tony Sherrer - Does a complete BDSM act with his double bass. He spins it around. He slaps it unitl it behaves. He caresses it softly. He spanks it and makes it rock. I need a cigarette after I watch him play. And dig on the soprano trombone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0SKhNPY2CE
Les Claypool. - Dude is flat out insane. The master of weird. And Primus sucks. So does Buckethead. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_8NtbKsYuA
You want the pocket? I mean, do you WANT THE POCKET? Here is the pocket. Watch. Learn. Terry Crayford is in the pocket. And Terry wants you to know there ain't no frets in the pocket. And I really dig this song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2TrHDwn4lM
