Imagine...When Allen Slutsky sought a bassist to play the opening solo for the film Standing In The Shadows Of Motown (a sort of Bernadette variation) he gave the job to Pino when he could have gotten virtually anyone to perform that honor. When The WHO needed a replacement for Entwistle due to Johns sudden death...they agreed on Pino. Pino being asked to pay (and play) homage to perhaps the two greatest rock bass guitarists of all time. Pino is certainly among the most versatile bassists ever...performing rock, jazz, R&B, soul, neo- soul, etc...each with an enviable amount of virtuosity. He was a pioneer of the fretless bass in rock, and plays that, as well as 4 string, 5 string, and 6 string with amazing skill. Anthony Jackson called him "annoyingly great". Is there anyone better out there today?
