    The rumours were apparently true about The Fyffer bolting. Here's a fan's review of last night's gig with Alex:


    "Nick Fyffe has left the group, he was replaced by ALEX, which played even better than Nick. They started with Canned Heat and ended with Deeper Underground, and inbetween they played Alright , Cosmic Girl , Travelling without moving , Mr. Moon , Butterfly , High Times , Love Foolosophy and Little L , that's all I can remember. It was a great night!"

    Cool! I'm curious what the next studio effort will sound like.

    Their new keyboardist said that it would have a rawer sound with more live instrumentation.

    They're still in the writing stages, so I'm guessing next spring or so.

    I'd like to get my bet in early that the main reason was a certain Mr. JK.....:meh:

    JK, while essential to the band, seems to be quite difficult to work with. It's too bad he drove away one of the best bassists of our time. (In my humble opinion, and I'm not talkinga bout Nick Fyffe.)

    I saw Nick Fyffe live at their Lisbon, Portugal show - brilliant. Though I have to say that, to me, Mr. Stuart Zender shall remain one of the most incredible bass players of recent times (in the genre I prefer). I was sorry he was driven out of Jamiroquai.
    Then again, Jay Kay IS Jamiroquai, and a guy that endured such a lot of hardship when he was younger, will let nothing stand in his way to success.
    It's still my favorite band. And David, thanks for the sound clip - it's GREAT! Can't wait for their (his?) next album!
     
  13. I love that bass! It looks soooo sweet! That;s the BB2004 isn't it?

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Help me out, here - who is "Alex"?

    I'm a HUGE Zender fan, but I never really got into Fyffe's playing. He just didn't do it for me the way Zender did (who does?). Sure, I may be biased and each player has his/her ow style, but I just liked what Zender contributed more.

    Alex = Dirk Lance = the ex-bassist from Incubus... should be interesting

    I assumed wrong... Still unconfirmed but it looks like it's Alex Meadows

    But that's probably why he fell out and what no bassist will be "allowed" to do again!! :rolleyes:
