Please Explain: Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds Seek Leland Sklar? Posted by Mr. Moderator Jul 302007 How many head-scratching moments can you spot in this clip? 3 Responses to “Please Explain: Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds Seek Leland Sklar?” Tom MEANS says: 07/30/2007 at 10:13 am Nick Lowe on double-neck bass/guitar??? Is that Waddy Wachtel or Eric Drew Feldman on rhythm guitar??? Two drummers??? 0 High Five BigSteve says: 07/30/2007 at 11:43 am At first my guess was that it was McCartney’s Rockestra, when I saw the number of people onstage and a woman on the keyboards. I know Dave Edmunds participated in that. But I’m pretty sure that what it is is the Live Stiffs tour, which was a kind of everybody-plays-with-everybody-else’s-band kind of thing. I had no idea there was film of it. On the guitar is the Pink Fairies’ Larry Wallis, who recorded the immortal Police Car on the Live Stiffs album. I think the woman on keyboards (Denise something?) was in Ian Dury’s band, or maybe Wreckless Eric’s. The double-neck is weird, but Lowe and the guitarists in Rockpile often played Hamers. I think they must have had a deal with them. Lowe was even known to play 8-string bass on occasion back then. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 07/30/2007 at 12:52 pm The Live Stiffs tour makes sense, BigSteve.
