Here’s the second installment of my “Four Lane Highway” edition Tuesday Tunes posts. Basically, I’m recreating the glory days of the band I played in with my friends way back just a few moments after the Cambrian Explosion, by posting videos of songs we played.
Here’s a rocker from Foghat:
Oddly, my clearest impression of us performing this song was at a party where we made a stage of the back porch, and the thing I remember most is that for this one performance, I was on the other end of the stage from my normal post. Usually, I was on the listeners’ right hand side, where I had a good view of John on drums and he had a good view of me. He and I being the rhythm section, eye-to-eye contact sometimes was essential.
Anyway, I remember playing this with me and my bass on the other side of the stage. It probably had something to do with a short power cable or something. Oh, well.
The other thing I remember was really digging the bass lines on this number.
