This clip comes from the 1979 film, The Kids Are Alright, featuring the isolated bass work of John Entwistle on the Who’s classic “Won’t Get Fooled Again”.

Give it a little time before the Ox dives in, around the 50 second mark.

    Ox: defining rock and roll bass playing. Here’s why…

  4. Stuart Brandt

    The Ox was the best at what he did.

  5. Michel Mourachko

    assassing riffs !!

  6. Aaron Collegeman

    What a hippie.

    The Ox! What more need be said!

  8. I saw him live at New York’s Academy of Music years ago. It was probably the loudest gig I ever heard! Great stuff all around. The Ox will be missed.

  9. am I the only one who thought it was a little sloppy, it had its parts for sure but not by any means tight.

    • if you thinks its sloppy, two things.. first, its live. second, if you play the video of the whole band ( find it on you tube) and play both videos at the same time( creatively pausing one so they get in sync…. I DID ) its an awesome performance. The Ox is out of the Box !!!

  10. he must be the british james jamerson!

  11. LOVE LIVE ROCK! THE OX defined the bass as a lead instrument!

  12. Yep, and many feel that James Jamerson was THE sound of Motown…

    l + l ;J.

  13. I would never have realized that the Ox did sting popping without hearing this isolated part (around 4:00). Interesting.
