Friday Videos, Love Thy Bassist Edition

Let's continue our appreciation of the bass with bands that are known for their bassists, starting with "Tom Sawyer" by Rush. Then...

  • "Jerry Was a Racecar Driver" by Primus.
  • "Vietnam" by Minutemen (live). Video quality is crappy, but the sound is pretty good.
  • "Sex Machine" by James Brown (live). Okay, I've forgotten about the "bands famous for their bassist" bit so we can enjoy this. I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed by the bass playing. Plus, check out the sweet 'stache!
  • "Think" by Aretha Franklin from The Blues Brothers. Hey, that was on my list! This is getting fun.
  • "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" by the Smiths. More from the list!
  • "Radio Free Europe" by R.E.M. on David Letterman. List!
  • And finally, "The Real Me" by the Who (live in '79). Go Thunderfingers!

I know it was Bassist appreciation, but the video for Tom Sawyer reminded me how great Neil is on drums. Thanks for that bit of "nostalgia."
