    I recognize Kenny Aronoff on the drums but I don't know who the bass player in the hat is.

    Sub'd. Don't watch enough TV, I guess. Not sure what this is, exactly. But I'm interested. That, and Kenny is a great drummer!

    If its any of the usual 10 people that seem to do all these shows,I would guess it's Don Was....

    It's Don Was. He's played with and produced a lot of big names.

    Yep, Don Fagenson (AKA Don Was) it is. He's probably produced an album for everyone else who has performed on the show. No telling how many albums he's produced. Hundreds?

    Peter Frampton from Ringo's all-stars from a few years ago, Steve Lukater and Don Wass.

    I thought Paul McCartney sounded great on both bass and vocals. I only saw the last part, but he sang several songs and Ringo sang several.

    Joe Walsh absolutely KILLED it on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". I generally don't care for his voice, but he sounded great. And the guitar playing….just….wow!

    Steve Lukather has the guitar tone of a mosquito. What an odd choice for a Beatles trib.

    I didn't realize this was on, I wish I had seen it. I hope I can catch a replay somewhere.

    Don Was produced the backbeat soundtrack when that was out, it's a cool recording. He of course has produced tons of other great recordings too.

    Remember him from a BP Mag article 20-odd years ago. Bass and Music Director. He's standing in the dark with the camera almost never on him and yet he's the one in charge. Cool.
