    I tried to Funk with Bootsy, but the clip kept pausing. I may dig it up on my own.
    How many Star Basses does he have? I've seen at least 3 different Pickup configurations.
  3. Holy crap David Sanborn looked young.

    Holy crap that guitar was totally relic'd beyond belief.

    That guitar was a original late 60's Strat(for those who may be interested the guitarist is the original late night with D.Letterman guitarist Hiram Bullock).

    I made a mistake and spelled David(sanborn's first name) wrong.

    Jauquo, thanks for the great clip! That must be from Sanborn's old late night show back in the 1980s. It's great to see Bootsy actually play instead of simply being a character as he often is nowadays. It is good to remember that there is a reason why he is esteemed: the man could and can jam!

    Thank you thank you! Nice clip.

    Is Hiram the same guy who is playing with Marcus Miller on the Run for Cover clip on youtube.com? I want to say it is him, but not sure.

    (I would post a link, but I'm having problems with the site right now?)

    Hiram is defiitely a sick guitar player, and he's played with a lot of great bass players: Will Lee, Marcus, Bootsy!

    I guess Sanborn Knows how to pick a funky bass player, though Marcus and Bootsy are definitely in two different realms of funk.

  13. There are people selling episodes on ebay. Steve Swallow played on the same episode as Bootsy.

    The bass player in the house band at this point was Tom Barney.

    I think Sanborns son (Jonathan?) was also playing bass on that show. It's been a while but I remember Steve Swallow, Carla Bley, Sanborn jr. and Bootsy on one tune.

    Great link Jauqo :)
