FDP Forum / Fender Bass Guitars and Bass Amps / Killer bass with Jackie Wilson

Never mind the wacky "mod" outfit, I wanna know who is playing bass in this clip! During the verses in "Higher and Higher" he takes off into the stratosphere. It's from a 1967 Jerry Lee Lewis TV special so, I know, it's probably just some session ace, but man does he ever swing! Anyone venture a guess?

Who's killin' it on bass? (crank it up!)

No idea who the bass player is, but that has always been a favorite of mine...I have always wished that I could have played in a horn band at some point...lots of my favorites from the 60s were filled with horn riffs...but we moved into the Zepplin and Cream phase with all the other guitar bands and it took decades for me to realize my loss. Jackie always seemed to OWN the stage when he stepped up to the mic. Thanks for sharing.
