    May he rest in peace.


    I'm going to listen to some Who and solo career records all day.
  2. Wow, has that been 10 years already? I still remember when Keith Moon died.

    I always post this one, and here it is again, because this is the most ridiculous bass solo I've ever heard. Now in HD! http://youtu.be/Wv4DapVgsx0?t=4m25s

    A short but sweet classic solo on acoustic http://youtu.be/50UL2ZRhqoQ

    And this one in 5:15 from 2000 is just spectacular as well. http://youtu.be/lRflGVcRxCI

    And for fun, an alternate take on The Real Me, apparently from 1979 with Kenney Jones (always thought it was a Quadrophenia outtake), but nevertheless super funky take on the bassline, and nice horns from Entwistle. http://youtu.be/YPuJj-Ny2uY

  6. The Who is what got me into being a musician when I was 11 and my dad taught me how to play all of Tommy on piano. When I picked up bass 5 years later, the Ox was one of my main influences.

    Whoa. :eek:

    Here's my tribute link:

    Not with the Who... but it will take your breath away and one of the best recorded examples of the Ox's signature tone out there.
  9. Seems like it was yesterday.
  10. RIP Ox.
    I've got Tommy on right now, with Leeds, Who's Next and Quadrophenia queued up next

    Wow, that's certainly a different take on the old Bo Diddley riff!

    Ummm, that's pretty ridiculous stuff. Looks like I'm going to have to find much more of his solo stuff.

    All of these so far are awesome, some I've seen before some not.
    This is one that I've been enjoying recently. It sounds really sweet when You jam it through some good speakers. It isn't any of the awesome soloing stuff, but really good none the less. If You watch all the vids in a series, it is pretty much the same set list as live at leeds, most of the concert is there with pretty good vid quality...

    RIP JAE, You are missed.

    His right hand technique never ceases to amaze me. So fast and fluid... poetry in motion.
