Bass Player Live!

Specialist events for six-string shredders are commonplace, but gatherings of bassists, those oft-overlooked bottom-feeders of rock & roll, are rarer than a decent drum solo. This all-star concert and awards show, the highlight of two days of clinics and exhibitions (mostly at nearby SIR Studios), leans decidedly toward hard rock's low end. Black Sabbath's deceptively fleet-fingered Geezer Butler (alleged utterer of the much-quoted "We're only in it for the volume"), Laguna Beach rockabilly royalty Lee Rocker (Stray Cats) and 26-year-old Aussie fem-phenom Tal Wilkenfeld (Jeff Beck) will be honored, while performers include the very metal Rex Brown (Pantera), Frank Bello (Anthrax), Blasko (Ozzy Osbourne) and Dave Ellefson (Megadeth). Bring earplugs. Or not.
