The Bass Zone / Re: 2014 Jack Bruce Interviews

Chad doesn't seem to mind the old crank. I think he gets Ginger and takes it in stride because he understands Ginger's giving them a bit of a ribbing. I think it's funny and impressive at the same time that Chad is willing to humble himself in the presence of someone that is clearly a musical inspiration.

Almost forgot about what happened to Eric Bolling and the resulting suicide of his son. Perhaps that tragic circumstance prompted some of Gene's outburst.

Considering what's happened at FOX with Ailes and O'Reilly, I can understand why they'd be a little sensitive. This is Gene pushing buttons and poking fun at the hysteria of it all. I wouldn't expect any less of him. People need to lighten up about Gene, it's not like he shoved his tongue down their throat or took pictures of himself groping women while they slept.

He says the Warwick thumb was his favorite bass. Good enough reason to post this video with Jack's two favorites. I'm sure he was fond of Pete Brown with a vocal cameo here as well.

Wild at Heart was on TV and that got me searching for the metal band in the movie. So here is Powermad and a NR bird.

A little different from most of the cow serenading videos I've seen. I bet they would have liked a Gibson bass more, something with a Mud Cud bucker.

Yes, that Helen Thomas. I don't think she played bass. She's dead now so she didn't get to see this new RD but if she did play bass and was still alive, I think she might have reacted thusly.

I'd think the weight should be similar if it's a solid maple body with no weight relief. If anything it might be even heavier if you consider that the moog electronics on the original probably weren't as heavy as the substantial amount of wood they displaced. The other variable could be the species of Maple. Some are lighter in weight compared to typical rock or sugar maple but the trade of is they would dent much easier.

Heavy or not, I'm on the same page as Helen Thomas on these new RD artists.

Toxic machismo? Pink at the CMAs? Australians singing country?

That's a great video. Along with lots of pretty girls, there's also a Jack Casady bass. What's not to love?

Interesting bit of info regarding the Emmet Miller inspiration. Very cool to hear how something originating in a Jazz band setting could find it's way to Hank and his trademark voice break yodel.

Those tracks do sound nice. Nothing wrong with the TB+ per say, It's just that the Epi vintage pro looks way cooler in comparison to the modernized bird. Guess I should be glad it's not giving me GAS for something I shouldn't be spending money on.

Shouldn't these songs be considered blues?

Cool, so next time someone I'm playing with says I'm dragging, I can just say I was just trying to do some groovy slugging!  ;D
