If only I could have 10% of the bass playing capabilities of my hero Jerry Scheff.
Great bass player and also a great life story! (I enjoyed reading his book..)

Wow, thanks for the clip. Great to see Jerry still jammin' away, and looking like he's having a great time!

Cool clip indeed.
Jerry is one of the coolest guys from the TCB band.
Met him several times and he is always very friendly and honnest.

Last time he was VERY happy to sign my LA Woman-Doors cd,an upgraded version with pics of him in it during the sessions.
He told me i was cool to know about this moment in his life..
"I" was cool...
Man, how humble this guy is.
He played with Elvis, Morrison, Orbison... the legends of the music industry.

Is it wrong of me to wish that he was still with the TCB Band? It just doesn't seem right with Norbert Putnam up there and not Jerry.....

I agree, but next to Norbert, who was never on stage with Elvis, it would have been nice to see Duke Bardwell reuniting with the TCB band doesn't it?
They actually played a few gigs together with Elvis :wink:

Nice to see Jerry is still doing fine.

Ah it's real great to see Jerry again. I thought he had severe hearing problems which was one of the reasons he's stopped performing? Whatever it is, it's nice that he's still playing. I wish he and the rest of the TCB guys would do a club show or something in the States...

In addition to being a great bass player, Jerry is a really nice man. Had the privilege of meeting him in Atlantic City, NJ, in 2003. He was so soft spoken, very kind, and was not in a hurry to rush off. Glad to see he is still playing and being recognized for the amazing talent he has.

A great bass player.

As for Norbert Putman, he is replacing Jerry very well and is one of the nicest person I've ever met in my life.

Looking at another Jerry Scheff related thread, I'm reminded that there is apparently a falling out between Jerry and rest of the TCB guys:

Not sure what exactly went down but it's hard to imagine that Jerry could have had deep rooted issues with some members of the band (Glen?) yet still toured with Elvis The Concert for all those years...

Jerry doesn't want to 'dance on Elvis grave' anymore.
Nothing more, nothing less.
