Does Rocco ever slap?

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by bassteban, Jan 13, 2005.


  1. His bass, I mean. Just to clarify, I personally would hope not- although I do. The reason I ask is that a guitarist friend(I'm very open minded, yes?) said he heard some "new" Tower Of Power, & there was A "ton of slap" on it- somebody, please, SAY IT AIN'T SO.
     
  2. C'mon guys- I know (hope, really) it's a dumb question- I'm really just repeating it for the sake of shooting down my admittedly out-of-the-loop friend. Heppabruddahout!
     
  3. My wife & I have this gift of becoming invisible in restaraunts, or other service related businesses, usually when we need service. I didn't know I could do it here. My wife is not here, now, if that helps. Help me, Spock...

    *plugs ears* i am not listening, i am not listening...

    Well i dont really know, i really doubt Rocco would start slapping now, he's always been a solid finger funk guy.

    I already answered in your other thread that I moved to Bassists.

    The album I meant is "Back on the Streets" btw., he slaps on several tracks.
     
  6. Hey, JMX-I actually posted this first, but thanks again- and again, which album?

    Bassjamn, you hear me perfectly well! JMX says it's on some old stuff. I'm still hanging on to a thread of hope that it's all a bad dream- a very bad dream...

    Again, "Back on the Streets"

    Tracks:

    Rock Baby

    Nowhere To Run

    Something calls me

    It takes two (to make it happen)

    In Due Time

    Just make a move
     
  8. I'm done, now- must go neglect the kids. Mr. Hart, if it makes any difference, I really like your basses...

    Don't worry....Rocco never slapped! Vito San Filippo played bass on Back On The Streets. I saw them around 1980 when Vito was in the band, he was a funky guy in his own right :bassist:
     
  10. I have no problem with anyone slappin' the bass- except Rocco. That would just be wrong. Or me.That would just be annoying (doesn't ever stop me, though).

    I'm with you Jerry.
    I couldn't recall Back On The Streets until I checked on it over at AMG saw the cover.
    Now I remember(sorta). A very disappointing release; TOP doin' Disco.
    Badly.

    The drummer I play with was in a band with Rocco about '79, he says he was still great even though he was indulging a wee bit ;)
