Dave Pomeroy: The Day The Bass Players Took Over The World

Check out Dave Pomeroy with his Bass Day evening kick off performance of “The Day The Bass Players Took Over The World” (back in the 90’s, we think).

We especially loved the “tied up the guitar players with those big ol’ flatwound strings. Sorry boys.” line. (Not to mention the bass playing and that sweet 5 string electric upright.)

Sweet! I was looking for this video for pretty much ten years and just a couple of months ago, I finally found it on YouTube. Dave is awesome and this song has been my motivation for playing bass. One day bass players will take over the world, for sure!
