    Mods - I coin flipped between "Bassists" and "Miscellaneous". Bassists won. Switch if necessary.

    I was watching "The Today Show" Saturday morning and they had "The Captain & Tenille" on performing. For their second number, "Do That To Me One More Time", they had one of the feature reporters, Leonard, standing in on bass.

    They all made way to big a deal about him being nervous (I'm sure he was) but he played very well. I'd never really paid attention to that song's bassline before, but I liked the way it sounded on his fretless J-Bass.

    Anybody else see that? Your thoughts?

    Peace,

    James

    I was actually watching "The Today Show" & saw that "The Captain & Tenille" would be performing but I shut the TV & came to TB instaed. :( I would of like to have seen it so I would have something more to add.

    I heard that Michael Manring is the regular bassist with Captain and Tenille - and sometimes he gets to wear that hat, if he's played particularly well...

    ...it might just be a scurrilous rumour though...

    That was MSNBC's Lester Holt sitting in...one of cable news' better anchors.
    I knew there was something I liked about that guy.
