Who is the bass player?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by 88tuner, Nov 9, 2003.


  1. I was watching Phil Collins (Brother Bear Unplugged) on VH1 this evening and noticed that the bass player was playing a slanted fret bass. Does anyone know who this bass player is? He looks like a member of ZZTOP or maybe Santa Clause and plays a slanted fret bass. Actually, he looks like the guy at Silver Dollar City.
     
  2. Leland Sklar?

    Was the bass a a Dingwall?
     
  4. I didn't see it but from that description I can say I am 99% sure it is Lee Sklar
     
  5. ...or maybe it actually was ZZ Top's Dusty Hill! (BLAH!) :D

    Something else I like about Sklar-
    His beat-up P-bass has the pickup(s) "reversed"...
    -The coil assigned to the "E" & "A" strings is closer to the bridge.
    -The coil assigned to the "D" & "G" strings is closer to the neck.

    I'm assuming he was the one of the first to come up with that...I wonder if Leo tried it?

    ;)

    Yep. Sklar. EXCELLENT bass player. For some reason he seems to have sold off a LOT of old gear on Ebay lately?

    No slam on Dusty but for some reason I can't picture him playing a Dinger.
