This fantastic video, easily the most rockin' thing Stephen Stills has ever been associated with (not that I don't think that Neil Young should shoot him in the face), features a bassist who our friend at Oily Rags contends might be a young Rick James, not long after playing in Neil Young's Toronto-based band.

Consider. From the video and from the web.












I think that's the same guy. Same nose, same cheekbones, same chin.

Anonymous points out in comments that this is Greg Reeves. It would appear that he or she is correct. Mea culpa.

Nope, it's Greg Reeves, who was just a teenager at the time.

You're absolutely right.

This Is No Mynah Bird, It Is Certainly Greg Reeves! Greg Turned 20 Right About This Month. This is Circa October/December 1969, About 4&1/2 Months After Woodstock. Greg Is The One And Only Black Rock Cowboys At Least Then. Check Out The Black Suede Fringed Upper He's Sportin, The Dead GiveAway Is That Brass Hoop On His Strap. Open Up Deja Vu You'll See It From That Pic Of Him At At The Greek (Adoringly Called Night Of The Fire Fly).Calvin Replaced Him I Think In April Of 1970 4the4Way Street Tour. This Clip Is I Believe The Last Time You Will Ever See Neil Reefing Down On That Wicked A Kickn A Rippin Wiggle Sticked 6120 Gretsch!! Only On Raaaare Occasions. Remember It's Hollow, Unlike Ol Black!!
