WTF anybody see the guy sitting down over Prince’s left shoulder playing the 5 string bass?

Prince is playing the lead bass parts and fills! He can play for real! That’s him playing on all of his early records as well as on the Time’s early records.

Funky!!

i didnt see the second guy. but it was totally obvious that there were bass parts he was NOT playing, with his hands in the air, and when the not slides up and his hand is sliding down, or vice-versa. I cant be sure if he was playing at all. shame on people for voting for this. !!!
