    HAve any of you ever heard Ron Wood's bass playing on Jeff Beck's "Truth?"

    I thought his playing was pretty good for a guitar player even though Beck seems to be playing all over the place.

    For those of you who haven't heard it, check it out!
    I must warn you that Rod Stewart is the vocalist on it. But it has John Paul Jones on keyboardsfor a couple of tunes.
  2. I think both Ron and Rod do a great job on that disk. The songs groove pretty well.

    Beck-Ola is another great with the same lineup.

    Great Beck.

    What's 'wrong' with Rod?!
    Back then, he was a pretty good Blues/Tin Pin Alley vocalist. ;)
    It sucks that I never had Truth or Beck-Ola...both have been on my list-to-get for a long one time, I think BOTH were even available on ONE cd! Still available, Gruffs?
    (& where can I pickup a copy of Pretties For You?).

    BTW, I always liked Woody's bass playing on Every Picture Tells A Story("Maggie May")

    Ronnie is a much better bassist than guitarist, IMHO.

    Yep,Ronnie IS a very fine bass player.
    He's also a very mean slide guitar player!
