    just watch EW&F at the NBA Allstar halftime show

    most definitely played live - whole bad, Dr. John, etc

    as opposed to the Super Turd

    I'm sure there's an interesting point being made somewhere in this...but its too hard to decode.
  3. Who could ever be a Verdine White critic..He is a pop funk icon! I have never met a critic of Verdine's playing.

    'is it live or is it Memorex?' crowd -whole threads about the sin of EW&F having some recorded stuff in their shows

    then there were ALL the Flea apologists re: Super Bowl pantomime

    at least be consistent

    He got tired of us slagging on him! He's got a point to prove.

    I saw a video several years ago when I had to learn Getaway for an audition. 2 bass players. Verdine just played the simple stuff so he could strut around the stage,while the other bassist was playing the groove. Kind of a letdown.

    Flea is still better than Verdine White, whether he's faking or not.

    I was glad to see Verdine whip the old Ibanez Verdine White Signature bass. I thought Verdine sounded good. It is good to hear him live for a change. He still dances around pretty good too.

    Janelle Monae kicked some butt! Her latest album is great, she should be getting the sort of attention that someone like Beyonce always has.:hyper:

    Love Verdine! Having grown up in the 70's he's 1 of my "Bass Icons"!


    I hate all of his jumping around on stage...
  15. Legendary bass player, no doubt.

    What I find very strange and irritating is his incredily white teeth.

    Let's see would I rather be Verdine White millionaire,six time Grammy Winner,producer and loved by millions? or some dude on some internet forum saying that Flea is better than I am,my teeth are too white or he's disappointed I dance too much? I'm taking option #1 the rest of you enjoy this fine discussion.

    Always enjoyed his bass lines. His hair, not so much. :bag:

    I'm fairly certain that track always had a doubled bass part.
