    Sad news for you newsense.... Bill Bruford was, "effectively forced out of music a couple of years ago by a debilitating anxiety about my perceived performance inadequacies, as surprising as it was unwelcome." I took this from a letter he wrote to the UK Musicians Union quarterly journal. He goes on, "I retired at 60 after 41 years, but my last few years were indeed difficult as I slowly fell out of love with music-making to the point of being unwilling to play publicly."

    That's what listening to Jon Anderson does for you

    Apparently he's fully fit physically and seeks no remedies for the situation but has "long since come to terms with what befell me, even if I don't fully understand it."

    Very cool...great feel, both guys... would dig playing with them.... years ago I played a few gigs with Randy Jackson and Steve Smith, and Tom Coster was on keyboards... those cays could play, anyway here's a little groove thing... not much, But you can start to feel where I come from. I have all jazz gigs for week , but I'll video something from next R&B/funk gig...Reg

    When James Jamerson was asked why he had never, ever, changed the dirty old strings on his Precision, he replied, "the funk is in the dirt".

    Here's one for trivia buffs:

    The Drells didn't actually play on Tighten Up. Archie was in the Army, stationed in Germany at the time and recorded it with the TSU Tornadoes (sometimes called TSU Toronados) while he was home on leave.

    Jamerson is the definition of Funk!!!!

    Hearing those lines are just so sweet. There's a Jackson 5 track he did the bass line is almost like a solo different lines constantly thru the song. I think it was Darling Dear.

    Then he played all that with only using one-finger on his picking hand. Then his classic bass line from What's Goin On that most bass players still can't play right. They had been working all day, he was tired, pissed off, and drunk and laying in the floor when he recorded it. The Funk Brother would record all day for $25 a tune, play a club gig at night, then go back to Motown to record more. So much great music.

    Thank you Funk Brothers your music is a Masters Class in rhythm section playing.

    Thanks, you mean musical feedback Hendrix style?
    It might work, but I am not sure that I was playing loud enough for it. Also it is a pretty upbeat tune, with a relatively short solo.. I'll look into it though!

    Hi, not yet, but they are working on it. I think the guitar might be a little low in the mix. I was actually playing my new custom shop strat, fun stuff.
    I was really glad to play with these guys, they are great musicians.
