Re: Doug Wimbush/Tackhead
Yea, and they stole the BASSLINE (for whitelines) from a tune by NY Art
band, Liquid Liquid !!!
BTW, I mentioned earlier, I got my tix to see the David Sancious trio with
Doug & Will (2/23 at The Bottom Line). The opening band is The Mahavishnu
Project, has any body heard them? (Has anybody heard the Sancious trio for
that matter) I've been a huge Sancious fan since his first solo album
"Forest of Feeling" from the mid 70's, which was produced by Cobham. I got
to see him live a few times around 76, when he was playing Keys (& guitar)
for Stanley on the School Days tour. He absolutely blew me away! Of course
I saw him numerous times (on TV & Video) 10 or so years ago when he was
Sting for a number of years. We even used to cover a few TONE tunes in my
Fusion band from 20 yrs ago (FX).
>From what I read of the Mahavishnu Project, they cover the entire albums
Inner Mounting Flame & Birds of Fire. SHould be interesting (I think)
