I just watched a documentary entitled Klaus Voorman and Friends: A Sideman’s Journey. Voorman is a bass player that has played as a sideman with a “who’s who” list of legends. The film is the documentation of a journey he took in his 70th year to visit old friends and record with them. Voorman’s friends are people like Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yusuf aka Cat Stevens, Dr. John, The Manfreds (members of Manfred Mann), Bonnie Bramlett, Jim Keltner, Max Buskohl, Van Dyke Parks, Albert Lee, Joe Walsh, Don Nix, Carley Simon and many others.
What impressed me was his total sense of humility throughout his career which is a
refreshing attribute for a celebrity. I was also amazed at his exceptional creativity which spanned both art and music. I am including a short of the documentary as well as some of his art which includes the famous album cover for the Beatle’s Revolver.
