T.M. STEVENS - Heavy & Funk Bass Techniques [1994] - NEW 2021 BEST QUALITY UPLOAD


Recommended Posts

New VHS rip! 
Same situation as 1st Larry Graham's VHS. 
The clip that has been floating through the Internet for the last 20 years is really poor quality. 
I was able to find a mint condition copy at the Japanese auction.
Now I am sharing this with you!
Keep it funky and stay tuned for more!

Saw him at Bass Day UK in Manchester in 2008. Some fantastic tales, particularly his time with James Brown.

He was supposed to have been using a laptop for his session, which he wasn't over impressed with, but the day before he was at the Guitar Show in Birmingham with Swans in Flight, so he brought them to Manchester.

After his session he wandered around the trade area and was so approachable and encouraging. Really sad about his dementia.

WTF is with the guitarist at 5'10"?

I remember when Warwick took all those funk legends under their wing around 10 years ago. Check "Fuss on Buss" videos on YouTube.  I think people primarily knew who he was because of Warwick videos / NAMM Show clips rather than the music he contributed to.

First heard him with Vai. TM Stevens and Bozzio as a rhythm section. I was 14 and had just started playing. That's what I thought a rhythm section had to be like😆

That’s the first time I’d heard the name- Devin Townsend on vocals too; what a band!!

Turns out I’d already been listening to him for years due to his work with James Brown.

Still absolutely love that album, the band and Townsend just rip it up. It's my favourite Vai album.

He was fantastic when he appeared at the London Bass Guitar Show. A really funny and friendly guy, with an impeccable groove. Wandered around the trade area after, chatting to everyone. So sad about his dementia

watching these videos he just seems like such a huge personality. Dementia is so cruel.
