    She absolutely kills the vocals and bass line.

    Yes, she's great, but wow, just reminds me, Bowie was a God.

    There's a few different versions of this on youtube, from various performances and live concerts.
    She nails it every time.
    Does a better job of it than Mister Mercury did too, in my opinion.

    Playing her Marilyn 'Ray, I see! She's an incredible talent. And if her online interview with Scott Devine is any indication, very humble and down to earth, as well. One of my favorite bassists!

    That takes some syncopation for sure.

    TRY THIS: Play and sing over the close of this well known song. Much harder than it may sound. The bass line is very cool too:

    Yeah she's unreal. But for being in Bowie's shadow she could have been a huge solo artist herself.

    Gail Ann Dorsey is awesome. She is now playing for Lenny Kravitz. Her album, The Corporate World, is a great unsung album. It was produced by Nathan East.
