Ive watched the whole thing except for the final 10 minutes or so, and Ive got to say that between the stories/pictures and that beautiful thing Oteil is playing throughout, Ive still got tears in my eyes. Something strange Ive never felt before was the FACT that I will never be able to go see him play, ever. With all the footage, and people talking about him, it was a very sad moment.

Does anyone know what Oteil is playing at the end? He is soooo dam good with that 6-string.

I believe Oteil is playing "Amazing Grace" at the end of Rising Low. Great film. Love the part where Mike Gordon is playing bass with the Mule and then takes off into the air....Lots of funny comments by the various bass players featured in the film, such as Les Claypool's: "Generally the bass players are the guys in the band with the biggest ******".
Very moving tribute to Woody. I never saw him with the Mule but got to see him with the ABB several times in the early 90's. A force of nature, that guy.

the thing Flea said about Joey Arkenstat had me dying. Apparently Arkenstat came to Flea's house on acid and took a dump in the middle of his floor. LOL

Glad the film was done, but not a fan of the Gordon side tangents.
Loved the interview pieces during Oteil's Amazing Grace. That, and Doug Woody's comments about the last time he spoke to his son, get me totally choked up every time.
Man, 8 years gone and I still miss Capt. Al....

cool vid. great music.

some very touching stuff in there from Woody's dad and wife, a couple cool stories from Farmer.
My favorite stories were from Warren about how Mule got it's name, and Jaimoe's comments about the bass line when he was listening to a Beatles tune

I'm pretty sure you mean Johnny Neel's comments about the bass line in a Beatles tune, not Jaimoe.

"That bassist isn't playing with the **** ing song!"
"Johnny, thats Paul McCartney"
"I don't give a **** who it is, he ain't playing with the song!"

I love Rising Low. The extras on the DVD are great also.

There are some moments on Rising Low that are nice like ... when somebody is actually playing music or talking about Woody. The rest is pure crap. Mike Gordon is on my list of least favorite musicians just behind Popper (if that tells you something.) Rising Low to me seemed more about Gordon than Woody. I mean come on for christ sake. You have some of the greatest bass players ever assembled. How 'bout turning the camera on them and let it roll? Instead of creating some character named Joey Arkenstat. Jeeze Plulease!!! I wish Chris Squire would have whupped Mike Gordon's ass (like the Hell's Angels did when he molested one of their underaged girls.) He sure looked like he wanted to. I can't blame him.

For me, the most touching moment of Rising Low was Mike Watt's comments about how the band must have felt when they lost Woody- he really gets choked up talking about it because he speaks from personal experience having lost bandmate and longtime friend Boom from the Minutemen years back. Mike Watt is a phenominal person and I'm so glad Warren included him in the project and I get emotional goosebumps just thinking of that interview portion of the movie.

The sole Woody show I ever saw (12-28-95 Utica, NY) will always be my favorite.
Miss you Woody

That's the line. When Warren said Johnny, I assumed it was Jaimoe - forgot about Johnny Neel.
thanks
