What an accomplished, yet so cool, bass line.
So steadily steady for such a steady time.
As usual, the cameraman just cannot find the bass player.
Back then, there was no bass player. John Kay got frustrated with bass players and had the keyboard player program the bass. I think they finally got one a couple years before he retired, but he was frustrated that the bassists he was finding that were good enough to hang were getting too jazzy. My friend George Biondo was a really tough act to follow.
I remember seeing a bassist with Stepenwolf playing a Mosrite bass. Was that George Biondo?
Doubt it. George usually used an Ampeg scroll bass.
Are you telling me I listened to that song a few times yesterday, really digging how cool the bass player was, when there's in fact no bass player?
That is 'effin hilarious, I kept looking and in the final 20 seconds I figured the camera would pan out and we would see the illusive bass player, instead just a keyboard player turned up....THAT'S BECAUSE THERE WAS NO BASS PLAYER!!
Lol…afraid so, although the original does have a killer bass part played by Rushton Moreve.
Not the 1st time I've been fooled (The Doors, the B-52's, the White Stripes and the Black Keys come to mind).
