Thanks UT for pinpointing that aspect of 'All Right Now' and 'You Shook Me' - I've always loved how the bass comes in on both of those songs but didn't really think about it in any technical way. RIP both Mr. Fraser and Mr. Porcaro.

Bummer. He was the J.K. Simmons of his generation

Gravdigr 04-08-2015 03:55 PM

Every character he ever played was very likeable. Even as the head bad guy in "High Plains Drifter", he was very likeable.

glatt 04-08-2015 04:05 PM

I had no idea Juliette Lewis was his daughter. But now I can see the resemblance.

I liked him.

Robert Z'Dar, famous for the "Maniac Cop" movies, died March 30. He was instantly recognizable due to his massive chin/jawline, which was due to cherubism.

Heaven knows the competition for that sobriquet is pretty stiff.

DanaC 04-28-2015 06:23 PM

I think he rose in people's estimation when he wasn't investigated for Yewtree.

No, no, no you don't.

I would have guessed she'd died years ago.

Gravdigr 04-30-2015 03:51 PM

I think the only lyrics to that song are "louie, LouIE, oh baby, we gotta go", the rest is just an aardvark being strangled in the studio room in which it was recorded.

Ben E King is no longer standing by us.

The entries in this thread have been making me feel old lately. We're losing touch with the past when all these guys die.

I like your thinking. But if you'll permit, a slight amendment:

If only we could predict which babies being born would become famous reality tv stars, we could intervene Minority Report stylee.

monster 05-01-2015 07:15 PM

better left unsaid why such a thing might be wished for, eh? ;)

As Janice Rand, Captain Kirk's Yeoman Purser and original lust interest. Not mine, I was too young even when watching the show in reruns.

In the future we will all be equal, except there will still be hot women, except they will be Starfleet officers.

Didn't care for her in that role, liked her in other things better. RIP

I'm quite sure I don't know what you're talking about.


Maybe I have an idea...

busterb 05-17-2015 02:59 PM

Yep.

infinite monkey 05-17-2015 05:09 PM

Heh...I had that song on a 45.

Undertoad 05-22-2015 01:16 PM

Important bassist Louis Johnson, one of the Brothers Johnson and session player for Quincy Jones, dead at 60. You have heard Mr. Johnson's work on half the hit records of the 70s and 80s. He was a monster.

This song showcases Mr Johnson's aggressive pop/slap technique in full. Just the first 15 seconds of it is enough to give you an idea:



You could find him everywhere:



Of course, the brilliant "Strawberry Letter 23", in which Mr Johnson's parts created a hidden rhythm that was one of the secrets to the single.



You've never heard most of his part because it was mixed so perfectly and became part of the song, but here is the isolated bass part, and believe me, it's just unbelievably genius:


infinite monkey 05-22-2015 02:38 PM

Wow. I've always loved Strawberry Letter # 23...I think it's one of the prettiest funky songs I've ever heard (I had that 45 too!) It's hard for me to pick out particulars in arrangements, though I was taught how to try by my ex...so hearing the bass part isolated then listening again to the song. Just wow. It's so damn intricate. Thanks UT!

infinite monkey 05-22-2015 02:38 PM

PS. what is making that clicky sound? Some kind of percussion, but what?

Undertoad 05-22-2015 03:39 PM

In the right channel during the verses? Don't know, it's a woodblock on the left, maybe just sticks on the right.

BigV 05-22-2015 09:03 PM

no, what video?

ffs.

I replied.


then, some time later,



I discovered, no, the cellar discovered for me, that there were more replies beyond the last post on an arbitrary page. the last page I saw, not the last post in the thread. D'oh!!!!

Not that that's the only reason to mourn his passing this year of course.
