Yes Foxton, it was just listening to old Jam records and hearing how tight and solid he was. No showing off, just underpinning the guitar and anchoring the rhythm.
‘too many notes’. yes that is pretty much what watt does, plus he likes to play high so clashing with the guitar. Maybe a frustrated axe man – never the best choice for a bass player
In fact, on the french tapes there are for me some excruciatingly embarrasing bits of bass playing that suggest that watt never really learnt to play bass at all and is learning as he goes along
His diaries reveal a kind of spaced out old hippy, nice enough chap no doubt and he uses Mac so he’s obviously got some taste, but I get the impression that somewhere along the line he took some bad acid and has never quite recovered.
