I caught a re run of the MTV Crossroads show with Willie and Cheryl Crowe recently. The bass player was an older fella' with a long grey beard, similar to beards worn by ZZ Top. I was impressed. Most bass players with country style artists seem to be instructed to keep the beat, "Don't do anything that will call attention to yourself, and stand way back in the back!" This one did some out of the ordinary (for country bassists) runs. I am interested in who he might be. But once again as in all TV programs....if the camera gets away from the singer, it always goes to the lead guitar player, never let's us see what the bass player is doing. On the other hand I was watching an A&E presentation "Live By Request With Kenny Chesney" this weekend, and the bass player did get some time on camera. Nice to see for a change.
