cool video, Phil's bass is out of control! That is one wild looking instrument.

I hope Phil's backup singing in this video does not portend any Phil lead singing. :)

I wish I could've heard a bit more Warren there. I'm curious how he's going to sound.

With Warren playing a Strat, it just might not sound like Allman Bros. playing Dead.
P.S. Phil's bass took some bad acid...

Thank god. I thought it was me who took the bad acid. Thankfully, everyone sees the pink elephant bass.

Looks like he got some ideas from Prince

Ritter has been making basses like that for quite some time. I'm neutral on the looks... but the sound is nice.

Looks like Phil's in charge, musically. Which makes a lot of sense. Glad to see they seem to be having fun!

Great to hear them working up "The Eleven". Hope we're in for some nice song selections. I go with the Phil's bass is freaking ugly side. Looks like some BC Rich KISS project gone horribly wrong or something.
