    Watching Dr. John at Pori Jazz Festival 2000 from tv yesterday, I was surprised: bassplayer got more showtime than the geetarist :D
    Tho mr. John stole most of the cameramans attention, bassist was seen more than guitarist or drummer and clearly recognized as essential part of that funky type of music they played.

    Kudos to camerateam! :cool:

    The camera person probably thought that the bassist was playing a bigger guitar, ergo he was a better guitarist...

    ..or he could have been a bass player.;)

    Um yes that slapping must have distracted the gameraguy,
    or perhaps he was too lazy to go to the other end of the stage where guitarist was. Can't recall the bassists name, I remember he was black fella and playing jazzes.
    Dr. Johns webpage seems to be down so I can't check it from there either.
