    He is nearly 70 and still bringin' it. This was filmed last month.

    A colossus of rock bass.

    DD was my first bass hero. WAY underrated IMO…...

    A key piece of the puzzle for me was learning and understanding the bass lines on Love It To Death; talk about your Rock School

    :thumbsup:

    Love It To Death…the whole album was fun to play along with.
    One of my 1st cover/garage bands did (attempted) "I'm Eighteen".
    "Long Way To Go" was a workout.

    That's one of the great bass albums of its time, which is saying something.

    Definitely one of the best. Wrote great bass lines. Alice's real band was incredible and I saw them quite a few times live. From Love it to Death thru the Billion Dollar Babies tours. After he fired them and brought in the hired sidemen didn't bother seeing him again. No interest.

    "Gutter Cat vs. The Jets" has been part of my practice routine (and one of my favorite songs) for decades. The man is a true bass icon. :bassist:

    The guitarist here (Nick Didkovsky) is an old friend of mine - I went to HS and college with him. He was a big Alice Cooper/Dennis Dunaway fan back then in the 70s - pretty cool that he gets to play with one of his heroes :)

    Yeah he can play - his claim to fame back in the day is he could cover 21st Century Schizoid Man note for note :)
