    Hi Guys,
    I just caught a clip of destinys child performing independent women (charlies angels theme) at some awards show and MY GOD the bassist was seriously laying it down, his/her? live sound was monstrous, a huge room rattling boom and really high up in the mix as well (for a change), on the last chorus he/she broke away from the main riff and started playing this hugely funky jamersonesque type groove which KICKED ASS!!!

    Anyone know who it is??

    (if thats what they could do with the simple line on independent women I'd love to hear what they do with Bootilicious.....mmmmm...bootilicious).
     
  2. From what i remember of seeing them live (it was a festival, i didnt pay to see them specifically) it was big black guy and was playing a Warwick, and yes he was awesome.


    OOOOOH, he is on the Warwick site and he is called........ Maurice Fitzgerald and is from the US apparently. That's all the info i have.

    I saw a DC concert from MTV some time ago. Great band! The songs really opened up when played live. The bassist had a Roscoe and the tone was phenomenal. Those chicks don't look bad either.

    I saw them on TV, a short concert, don't know where from... he (Maurice) was playing a 5-string Warwick SSI, IIRC. He managed to get a great tone from it. Very tight and grooving band, and the girls knew what they were doing too. I was quite impressed by the performance, although I'm not a big fan of their music.

    How can you be sure that it was the tone of the cabinets that you heard?

    I agree - with stadium-type gigs or TV appearances, it is almost certain that you are not hearing the sound of the amp/cab, but rather a feed through the board and p.a.
