Literally Talking About “Stuff”!
Chad Watson is a world class bass player, songwriter, side man and side kick ( just ask his lovely wife, Pam Loe)
Artists he’s tour and /or records with include John York, Ronnie Milsap and Charlie Rich, Freebo and Bonnie Raitt, James Lee Stanley, Chris Hillman, The Burrito Brothers, Janis Ian, Ezra Mohawk and others.
Some of the things I talk about with Chad include: Playing at one of my favorite venues, Kulak’s Woodshed in North Hollywood with Freebo who used to be Bonnie Raitt’s bass player, and the Kulak’s Woodshed archives, which have been relocated to their Youtube channel, where you can still see live performances from some of the performers mentioned in our conversation.
He also takes about his days on the road with Ronnie Milsap; A brush with Kim Fowley, reminisces about some of the old clubs like the Palomino and a missed opportunity to sit in with Stuff, the original house band from Saturday night live when we swapped stories about missed opportunities. I mentioned the I chickened out when Marty Rifkin invited me to sit in with the house jam at the Palomino.
And then there’s great tale about country star Dale Watson – sorry, no spoilers.
Chad is currently working on a few recording projects and has just wrapped up a project with James Lee Stanley. He continues to perform live with his lovely wife, Pam Loe.
