Tal replaced by Rhonda Smith for 2010 Jeff Beck tour...

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by MikeBass, Feb 9, 2010.

  1. My thought exactly, however I was warned by a mod for defending myself from someone who has basically made it his mission to follow me around and attack me personally and make s**t up about me. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.

    Yes please :)
  2. Good gravy folks.......
    It's simple....

    Jeff replaced Tal (and the rest of the band) for whatever reason.
    Maybe some couldn't do it.
    Maybe some didn't want to.
    Who knows.

    So, Jeff replaced who he wanted- FOR WHAT EVER REASON!

    So, is Prince better than Tal is better than Rhonda is better than BassXGirl is better than me is better than blah blah blah.....

    Man, this place is getting nutty!
  3. agreed....it's not like these projects are meant to last forever....i'm sure beck has a list of people he'd like to work with,and availability is the determining factor.....nothing sinister

    ya, we can only wish it was sinister, but that's what it comes down to most of the time...availability.

    btw, you know the music business is taking a giant hit when one of the biggest producers out there is taking a gig with jeff beck.

    I think too that Michael Walden just enjoys playing. By the look on his face when he's behind the drums, he seems to squeeze joy out of every beat. He and Beck have a relationship that goes back to the mid 70's, and it must be a blast to be on stage together.

    well there are way worse gigs than the jeff beck gig for sure. but it's still roadwork, and roadwork is not fun when you're used to driving to a studio every day and sleeping in your own bed.

    i wonder how much jeff gets a night now...

    I was there Friday night at Madison Square Garden and yes it was Rhonda and Narada with Jeff Beck and they were sick.

    As far as Claptons band goes, yeh they were pretty dull.

    That's not my definition of good bas splaying at all. Most of the bass players I admire would never dream of taking a solo. Also, there's a world of difference between someone who can play over changes and someone who creates the changes. In my opinion, Prince is on a different level musically than any sideman, er I mean sideperson, in any band. it's analogous to the difference between a carpenter and an architect.

    It's all subjective. Your point is well taken. :)

    Beck released a 'official bootleg' from his site awhile back, it had Beck, Vinnie, Palladino & Rebello.

    "there's a world of difference between someone who can play over changes and someone who creates the changes"

    As Chet Atkins used to say " When I make a mistake, it's intentional." That was a great line to use when accidentally venturing off a chord chart. Just for some variation, I wish I'd said " I'm creating my own changes."

    At first I thought that you were referring to the "Live at B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill - Jeff Beck CD" also released in 2006 which only included keys and Drums and Beck on guitar....but as I read my other CD I realized that indeed Pino was on the "Official Bootleg CD"also from 2006 as well as some "string players"...Peace...DAcat

    This sums up my own feelings on the subject quite nicely.

    To think Prince wouldn't be able to solo over changes while playing bass is imo pretty ridiculous. But this whole thread has become pretty ridiculous.

    That's right: he claims to be proficient on over 1, 000 instruments.

    It must be true: he said so himself.

    MythBuster's should run an episode on the guy.
