    I'm sure there's an interesting point being made somewhere in this...but its too hard to decode.

    Who could ever be a Verdine White critic..He is a pop funk icon! I have never met a critic of Verdine's playing.

    'is it live or is it Memorex?' crowd -whole threads about the sin of EW&F having some recorded stuff in their shows

    then there were ALL the Flea apologists re: Super Bowl pantomime

    at least be consistent

    He got tired of us slagging on him! He's got a point to prove.

    I saw a video several years ago when I had to learn Getaway for an audition. 2 bass players. Verdine just played the simple stuff so he could strut around the stage,while the other bassist was playing the groove. Kind of a letdown.

    Flea is still better than Verdine White, whether he's faking or not.

    I was glad to see Verdine whip the old Ibanez Verdine White Signature bass. I thought Verdine sounded good. It is good to hear him live for a change. He still dances around pretty good too.

    Janelle Monae kicked some butt! Her latest album is great, she should be getting the sort of attention that someone like Beyonce always has.:hyper:

    Love Verdine! Having grown up in the 70's he's 1 of my "Bass Icons"!

    But

    I hate all of his jumping around on stage...

    Legendary bass player, no doubt.

    What I find very strange and irritating is his incredily white teeth.

    Let's see would I rather be Verdine White millionaire,six time Grammy Winner,producer and loved by millions? or some dude on some internet forum saying that Flea is better than I am,my teeth are too white or he's disappointed I dance too much? I'm taking option #1 the rest of you enjoy this fine discussion.

    I'm fairly certain that track always had a doubled bass part.
