I know I should probably post this on the EB side of talkbass but... Has anyone recently seen the 60-70's rock/pop band the Grassroots? They can be seen at fairs and casinos. Currently the band is comprised of Rob Grill (the original singer) along with a guitar player, keyboardist, and a drummer. Rob Grill's voice is dead on, but he is standing there with a Fender bass guitar that he is not playing. He moves his fingers occasionally, but the bass lines are coming from somewhere else. You can see him on the 60's rock show they have on PBS every once in a while and with the close-ups you can tell he is faking the bass playing. The odd thing is when they are introduced, he plugs into a bass amp and plays a few notes like he is warming up, but when the music starts, the bass lines are coming from the PA system and not from his bass. Just a pet peeve of mine, since the bass lines from some of the Grassroots songs are fun sub-hook bass lines. I know they probably don't want to pay for another musician. Over the years, the band was always larger with a real-live bass player and even a horn section. Other than that you will see a great show.
