What a Strange Band

The lineup: John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead Steve Jordan of the SNL Band and the Blues Brothers, amongst others But then the topper is the bass player. See if you can tell who he is without peeking in the YouTube comments section:

  1. I only watched the first two songs and you don't really get a good look at his face, but at a glance it appears to be either Victor Wooten or Randy Jackson.

    1. Nice work: Randy Jackson it is

    2. Ha, I was actually leaning more toward Wooten due to the trebly tone of the bass, plus I know that the Flecktones have played with both the Grateful Dead and Fogerty.

      The doubts that crossed my mind were that the bassist seemed a bit darker than Victor, he was a bit fatter than Victor, he appeared to be playing with a pick, and that Victor would have been bored to tears playing those bass lines. With these doubts I had to come to an alternative, and considering the build of the bassist, there was really only one other name I could think of (most of the well-known black bassists that I'm aware of are far slimmer).
