The best ever YouTube clip

If you don’t love this baby then you have a hole in your soul.

The Smokey Wilson Band – Smokey Wilson, Fred Kaplan, Richard Innes, Hollywood Fats and the GREAT William Clarke.

I don’t know who is on the bass – it doesn’t look like Willie Brinlee or Alex Schultz – is it Larry Taylor – anyone know?

Here’s Bill.

Bill Clarke

Please someone stop me watching it.

I think it could be Alex Shultz.

Hi Ken,
no it’s not me on bass! Wish it had been… I did play some gigs at the Belly Up Tavern behind Bill & Smokey, but Fats was not on guitar.
And it’s not Willie, or Larry- I’m actually not sure myself who it is.
If we could get Innes to watch it he could tell us. I was thinking about a guy named something like “Al Badrosian” or something who used to play around a lot, but I don’t even think it’s him…
anyhow, thanks for the nice comments elsewhere about me!
