Cause We Ended As Lovers

Hey Engineer, here's a live performance by Beck from 2007 with Tal Wikinfield, the amazing Australian bass player. The interplay and empathy betweeen the two musicians is incredible. Tal was born in 1986 when Jeff was already 42, yet the time frame becomes irrelevant with in the world of their art. I give Beck a lot of credit for the role he has played in promoting great women artists as creative equals in a macho music world.

Hello Microdot,
This is exactly what I saw on PBS. I took a guess that it was Jeff Beck’s daughter playing bass at Eric Clapton’s Crossroad Festival. I think that it was in Chicago. Excellent clip!

There was another male guitar player that I took notice of who played at this Crossroad Festival. Long blond haired pony tailed guitarist playing a Gibson SG with a slide. Freaking amazing talent. Do you know who he is? I have seen him a couple of times but I have no tangable aspect of who this guy is.
