Jack Bruce with Rory Gallagher: Politician (Live)

Today is Jack Bruce’s birthday, and while we don’t need any excuse to share a great clip from the legendary bassist, we thought we’d celebrate with this one.

This starts with Jack giving guitarist Rory Gallagher a crash course for “Politician”, seconds before the group takes the stage.

Jack carries the tune and lets Rory fill in the rest. This one gets down!

Happy birthday, Jack.
