Superb! Mark King from Level 42 started out as a drummer. Just as in your clip, it really shows.

LOL - how many bass players have you ever seen that can break a G string like that? Actually Louis besides playing with the Brothers Johnson, Quincy Jones, and George Duke (yes, Frank Zappa's George Duke), was the bass player on a number of Michael Jackson's songs.

He was known as a human metronome, and Quincy said he never needed a click when playing with Louis because his timing was perfect.

This is the song that he did back in the day that caught my attention as a drummer:

And here is a great bass cover of that song where you can hear the real poly-rythmic nature of the song, with the bass, drums, bongos, and rythm guitar all complimenting, but not running over each other. His solo is nothing like Louis', but the guy does most of the song pretty good:

WOW, that was awesome. I never heard of him but man that was impressive as hell. I remember seeing a thread on here about the 10 best bassist of all time and never saw his name on any list but that was more impressive than just about any bass I have ever seen.

Definetly better than Michael Anthony

No problem, I think drummers actually appreciate watching him in action better than most other musicians. Paul Mc Cartney has always been an admirer of Louis' skills and he actually starred in Mc Cartney's movie "Give My Regards to Broadstreet". Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers mentions Louis as one the greatest influences to his style. That guy can take off on the bass pretty well, too.
