    He sounds exactly the same after all these years. Live at Carnegie Hall is such a fantastic show. I love how at the end of Use Me, the crowd doesn't stop cheering, so he says "one more time? one more time." and goes right back into it.

    Use Me is one of my all time favorite songs. Bill is the master and it translates to many genres.

    (if you don't like bass solos, skip ahead to 3:00) Nice solo by Neal Alger as well.

    Glad you liked it. Patricia is an acquired taste, and I love her music. I took some lessons from Neal when I lived in Chicago. Check out some other Patricia stuff. He's a killer.

    I still like ain't no sunshine the best. Funny I got reminded of that song the other day when I heard Me first and the gimmie gimmies cover it, slightly different flavor than the original.
