How does he do that??

 
It takes a lot of discipline.  Incidentally, that's Larry Graham - one of the most talented and innovative electric bass players ever - playing on this tune.

Yeah. And? Is this an observation, or a reproach? Either way, somehow, "I love elite people" or "I shoot everyday people" doesn't quite have the same appeal.

I went to go see them back in '68 in Chicago at the Grant Park band shell along with Muddy Waters  but after Muddy Waters played they never showed up and a riot ensued. Muddy Waters was good anyways...

Propably. To me, this is one of the bands I hear critics raving about, so I put it on my "to discover" list only to find out I don't get what they're getting. Different folks for different strokes. Enjoy.

Thanks Bill! Great song, great message. If you had heard it when it was first released in the late 60's, which I did, I suppose it would have a different impact on you than hearing it now. Everyone has feelings attached to music in relation to what is happening at the time they first heard it. :hearteyes:
