    I just watched a video of Justin Timberlake playing Suit and Tie on SNL. Beyond being one of the best overall live SNL performances I've seen, the bass player KILLED it.Who is this dude? I'll post the link below...listen with headphones. BTW the rest of the band is awesome.

  2. No JT fan here, but I saw it too and it was fantastic! And yes, the band killed!

    Dont know who the bass dude is though.

    I have only heard him before when my kids used to listen to NSync. He certainly is very talented and knows how to make a great song. He hit a homerun on that one. Going to have to see what he has up his sleeve. Maybe it's all that good!

    Ok, How do you get That tone? Seriously that was awesome. I am a rock bassist, but would love to nail that tone for church. Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Can't believe no one has answered this yet. The bassist is Adam Blackstone. He has some heavy-duty credits to his name. Check out March 2012 edition of BP.

    Had to resurrect this thread to say everybody should check out Adam on the new JT concert flick on Netflix.
