I can't believe it! The album version of Space Cowboy wasn't played by Stu! One of my favourite 'Zender' basslines was actually played by a mysterious session player... I keep an eye on the forum over at www.stuartzender.co.uk. Stu agreed to answer some questions from members of the board and this is an abridged version of one of the questions: Q.20) Also, did you play the original (album) version of Space Cowboy (too many rumours floating around about that one)?(by Dee Rosa) I did not play the album version of Space Cowboy. Its a kind of sore spot for me because at the time we had finished the album and I had planned a holiday with my then girlfriend. We were coming to the end of our relationship and I wanted to try and get some closure. Jay then told me that we were to go into the studio to record an album version of the single on the date I was supposed to leave. We went to a cafe and had a heart to heart and I was sure he understood why I had to go and see her. My heart was breaking. The holiday was actually planned a month before the new session was booked. Anyway, he informed me that it was cool and that we would work something out. Well needless to say when I arrived back in town he had got another bass player in to play with the band on that version...Mr. X. It was a double whammy for me because I learned on my holiday that my girlfriend had an affair wih someone else.....bogus huh! This was the beginning of the end for me, for I had always looked up to Jay and then, to have him do that really hurt. I do however understand that he had to do what he had to do. It was after all his band. Discuss.
