We were without our regular bass player on 9-18, so we had Dr. Bottom as a Phil-in ... oh, man ... unbelievable.

He gets going with the bombs in Truckin' at about 7 minutes in, and never lets up. He doesn't really have a total Phil tone, more of a bright modern sound, but he BRINGS it. I didn't touch his tone, either, straight in. Wow. Yamaha 6-string. What he does on Foolish Heart and Terrapin is pretty remarkable, too.

I have been seeing this guy play bass for 15 plus years... He really is AMAZING! Good singing voice too...
