though, in contrast, one of the great songs, psycho killer, of the DB era, is realized by weymouth, just to give an obvious and too glaring an example:
as prelude to her influence in the following live show below:
first, some great videos, great lyrics, above and below. some great performances even. but… when has DB ever monetarily contributed to his own vocal causes? never. just alluding to the truth. which weymouth has lived.
[thanks to g. van noord for sending me the above happy birthday tribute to tina weymouth.] and i continue the tribute below, in the presence [above] of her animus: DB, also below. however, the following, while DB is brilliant, would not have been possible without weymouth, as bassist, in particular, if one listens to her bass playing throughout. without weymouth, this piece would not have worked, at all. from the very first notes. in fact, she led the band, musically, and DB was a vocal footnote, a great vocal footnote even, but, comparatively speaking, nothing without Weymouth’s bass playing.
but beyond the brilliance of her playing, if one watches the way she moves performatively, then, she’s clearly a brilliant leader.
