Fat Friday Feature: The Jam's Bruce Foxton On "In The City"

It's Friday - that means I feature a bass player or bass part that rules.  Today, it's Bruce Foxton's performance on "In The City".

I think one of the many things I love about Bruce Foxton is - and this may seem very simplistic - that he can sing and play at the same time.  I love watching him perform - it's all power, precision, and action.  There will be a post coming up about my "holy trinity" of bass of which Bruce Foxton is a part.  This "holy trinity" are the guys that inspired me to pick up a bass; they are the well that I continue to draw upon for inspiration.  I submit the clip below as a tiny bit of evidence as to why Bruce Foxton is a part of that trinity.
