This week we’re checking out a bass by 5th Day Products called Mallory, which takes its name from Juliette Lewis’ character in “Natural Born Killers“. Luthier Jeremy McDiarmid explains that everything about the bass is oversized.
Here’s a new video from Martin Miller and Mark Lettieri, and this one is more chill than others we’ve shared in the past. In this clip, the group takes on Jeff Beck’s version of “Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers,” including a sweet solo by Benni Jud.
Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy, and Randy George have teamed up for a new album in their Cover To Cover series. “Cov3r To Cov3r” features the trio tearing through classic tracks by King Crimson, David Bowie, Jethro Tull, and more.
Dirty Loops shared a new video with this as the caption: “Do you have any gigs? Neither do we…” But that’s not stopping the band from having some fun. Here are Henrik Linder and Aron Mellergård throwing down on “Chicken Lover.”

Dubbed as a “CLASSIC ROCK Garage Jam”, DRUMMERWORLD just reshared this epic video (from 2015) of Jojo Mayer, Jonathan Levy, and Brian J performing “Steppin’ Heavy.” Power trio!

The Pretenders have released their 11th studio album, entitled “Hate For Sale”, which serves as a grounding back to the group’s straight-ahead rock. It once again features bassist Nick Wilkinson, who slips between the album’s varying styles with ease.

I’ve been enjoying Dave Sanborn’s “Sanborn Sessions” series since day one, but episode #6 is my favorite so far. In this clip, guest Bob James joins the group for this incredible session. Ben Williams’ playing on this one is sublime.
