Bass for the win!
Back in 2008, Foo Fighters took the stage at Wembley Stadium. During the show, they were joined by some very special guests: Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page. So, of course, they decided to perform a Zeppelin tune.
Abby Dart (mom to Vulfpeck’s Joe Dart), shared this video saying, “Vulfpeck shared this today and it was TOO funky not to share with everyone!” This live clip of Prince is definitely funky, thanks to Rhonda Smith and an all-star band.
The Who is releasing a new album on December 6th. But they got our attention today by sharing this clip of them performing “Baba O’Riley,” filmed on B-Stage at Shepperton Studios in 1978.
Here’s a great clip from “Chicago In The Rockies,” featuring the band performing “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day” - and a cool story of how the song came to be.
Recently, I’ve been on a big Nathan East kick. It started with a live performance of “Can’t Find My Way Home” with Eric Clapton. Here’s a fun clip with Nathan teaming up with Paul Gilbert on a discussion of the blues, and then a great blues jam.
I was binge-watching videos with Tony Levin when this clip came up in the recommendations. In 1988, Eddie Van Halen performed at the tribute concert titled “Les Paul & Friends.” He was joined by Jan Hammer, Tony Levin, and Jerry Marotta. They rocked the house.
Snarky Puppy visited NPR recently to record a Tiny Desk Concert, and it was epic. In addition to the great music, Michael League decided to get the staff and audience involved with creating a polyrhythm.
Two days ago, Kevin shared the news that brothers Chris and Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes are reuniting for a tour with a new lineup, including bassist Tim Lefebvre. Here they are performing “She Talks to Angels” on the Howard Stern Show.
Zander Zon is back with another incredible video featuring his Harp Bass. In this clip, he not only showcases his impressive ability to handle this beast of an instrument but also his arrangement skills once again on this performance of the Tears For Fears tune, “Mad World.”
Back in 2007, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones performed the Byron Bay Bluesfest. Here’s a great clip of them playing “Throwdown at the Hoedown,” with that great intro by Victor Wooten.
