I was expecting it to be a bit bland, and underwhelming, but it was the opposite. Thoroughly enjoyable. From the history lesson of the “Deep south” to the dodgy drum machines of the 80’s, it was all very informative and continuously enjoyable to the end.

Worth watching.

I found it enjoyable but would of loved Stuart to have got together with Terry Bozzio and played his monster kit.

I think Terry is worth a stand alone hour length documentary in his own right .

Ive seen him at a drum fest play his monster kit and do a Q&A.

Its something to behold.

Chad from the Red Hots was there .

Incredible to think of all the amazing tracks he has been a part of yet I did not know his name.

This series is excellent by the way. Highly recommend.

Sadly I missed it, any idea if it’s going to be repeated?

I agree with the above, however I was disappointed that Andy Fraser (Free), John Paul Jones (Zeppelin), John Entwhistle (Who), Mike Rutherford (Genesis), Chris Squire (Yes), Sting, Roger Waters, Tony Levin, etc. didn't get a mention. I got the impression the presenter Tina Weymouth, as a typical American, cannot see beyond what happens in America.

Undoubtedly it will be a regular repeat in the near future !

The third and final part is on BBC4 on Friday at 2100hrs (UK time) or whenever you want on iPlayer if you have it.

As Jeff says, thoroughly enjoyable.

Thanks for the heads up, unfortunately I can’t  access iPlayer as I live in France and my IP address is blocked, can’t be bothered to pay for a IP spoofing service. :^

Agree that there are many fine and influential bassists that could have been included. I guess with a 1 hour show that attempts to highlight the history behind each instrument from pre-pop times through to modern day is inevitably going to be selective.

From a British perspective both McCartney and Hooky were included
