sweetness! the meters wrote and recorded so many amazing songs but had a relatively small live catalog. this is guaranteed to deliver. he’s the funkiest bass player in the history of new orleans (as certified by the office of ray nagin) and epitomizes all that is right in the no music scene. george matters.
