    Great. Another awards show where celeberties get to pat themselves and each other on the back. No thanks.

    I noticed that. I'm happy whenever I see a double bass on tv.

    actually they just played, and for whatever reason he used a bass guitar, not an upright. Looked like some type of '51 P clone but it was hard to tell with the lighting.

    That's weird. It looked like the kick drum had another pedal, and it wasn't a double kick pedal.

    I couldn't hear the DB either.

    You had 3 basses on stage with Justin Timberlake.
    What bass was his (electric) bass player playing? Jazz style, black block inlays, but with a full pick-guard (no metal control plate). He had 2 black knobs, and 2 silver . . couldn't recognize it. . .

    In that Black Keys, new orleans preservation jazz band, and Dr. John song, did anyone else have difficulty hearing anything Dr. John was playing? Whenever the camera showed him it looked like he was just hit one chord.
