    Okay, at the risk of running a-foul of the copyright gods, I just love the bass to this song so much I HAVE NO CHOICE but to share it - at least a portion of it. I don't know who the bassist is, but he's (or she) is phenomenal, in my humble opinion.

    There's a new interview with Roy on the Bass Musician Magazine Website.
