And I prefer Trower to Clapton!  :)

I find it hard to compare the two, Trower is firmly footed in electric blues (rock) a la Hendrix, Clapton has long augmented his blues origins with country-, pop- and singer-songwriter components. Clapton is more eclectic, Trower has his niche in which he excels. Clapton left Cream because he found the power trio confining and wanted to create The Band-type music, Trower left Procol Harum because the music was/became too "unbloozy" for him, he wanted a smaller canvas to paint on where he had more control.

And I prefer Rory Gallagher (for his rawer approach) to both so there!  :mrgreen:

... and a big plus for Trower was his vocal... ist... Jim Dewar... such a loss...

Cool version of A Forest with Gallup rocking the Rivoli reissue; manual echo on the outro - I always assumed he used a delay there.  Cooler still that it's an all black hollowbody lineup.

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (drummer and bassist of Deep Purple, Jake!)

Derek St. Holmes Band with unknown bassist (not Rob Grange) playing modern day EB bass.

I only realized now: That is David Kiswiney playing that modern day EB(-13). Having played Grabbers and Victory basses before, he's obviously the faithful Gibson type. Or perhaps living in Nashville as he does, he gets them for free.  :)

Sweet SB tone and good footwork in this live to air performance by Chicano Batman (starts at the 50 min mark; not the whole song/performance):

And here again, but this time rocking a mudbucker - think it's and EB0 but hard to tell:

This I like! The mannered quirkiness paired with a pop sense reminds me of the Super Furry Animals which I love.











Just ordered the CD of Chicano Batman, danke Jake!

Re the core subject: That even sounds like a mudbucker, indirect signal and all.

A video of angry young pre-glam Slade:



Some good shots of Jim Lea's EB-3. I thought he sent it to John Birch for some work, and Birch went wild and refinished it and modified it way further than Lea requested. Odd then to see it here, with two Birch pickups and the stock mudbucker. Or two EB-3 bridge pickups fitted? The pickup between the cover and the mudbucker isn't stock!

A much more sensible look.... dunno about angry tho.

Anywho, that added middle pickup is no EB mini; soemthing else.  Can't quite tell (vid quality and reflections of the stage lights) but it could be Jim Lea.  You know he could have taken the bass to him more than once, and this was just the stage 1 modification.

They look like John Birch mini humbuckers, I just couldn't see the bajillion pole pieces that JB pickups tend to have. It could be down to image degradation or the film it was originally captured on.

Slade had a close working relationship with John Birch, so I wouldn't be surprised if the bass made multiple trips to him. When the bass was refinished white it also lost the mudbucker and gained a bigger batwing pickguard. After the mods the bass was closer to the custom basses John Birch built for Jim, so maybe Jim requested the mudbucker be removed and it was the refinish that was above and beyond the work requested.

love that version, that's the first song i learnt to play on the bass.

Interesting occurence re gallup and his basses, while doing some Uni research Wikipedia told me that He was known for playing a T-bird, which struck me as odd as Ive always seen him with semi's. an Image search and sure enough theres lots pics of him using a bird at gigs, so i went looking for a cool video to put on the Tbird thread, nothing , went through every promo and released live ones and he never uses the bird, even though on loads of the audience vids he seems to use it a lot. I wonder why he would prefer the bird for live use but not want to be seen with it on promo stuff?

I found this one interesting. Though the video shows the Danelectro the 35s intro is nice. Looks like Golden Earrings Rinus Gerritsen is shopping for an (or could it be the) EB-3 in a music store (watch the hang tag):
