    Arthur is my favorite of all Zappa bassists. He was a keyboardist who only took up the bass in his early twenties in order to play for Zappa. By the time of his audition (just a few years later, after thousands of hours of woodshedding), he was already a brilliant bass player.

    Here is a cool solo:

    Here he is jamming at his private studio with other Zappa luminaries such as Tommy Mars and Warren Cuccurullo:

  2. Thanks for the clip. Arthur and Patrick O'Hearn are probably my 2 favorite Zappa bassists.



    Had no idea he played with Joe Cocker on "Leave Your Hat On" tho!

    It looks like Arthur's playing his Ripper there. O'Hearn is such a badass, too.

    I saw that band a few weeks later in NYC during the Halloween Run, and I distinctly remember Arthur playing a Ripper.
