    Anyone know any of the details about Eric Clapton's Tears in Heaven? I'm pretty sure the bassist was Pino Palladino, but does anyone know what bass he used? Anything else about the recording setup? Thanks!

    I'm not sure about your sureness, as I believe it was Nathan East who played on that track.
    But I can be wrong...

    It was definitely Nathan East on "Tears in Heaven," not Pino Palladino.
  4. It was Nathan East playing an ABG (Guild, Martin, I'm not sure).
