Marcus has played with many fine folk and I'm going to post some of his finest moments here (and one or two that he'd might want to keep quiet about).
This seems timely seeing as I featured Steve Earle yesterday; here's a fungus faced Marcus playing upright bass with Mr Earle, Emmylou Harris and Daniel Lanois on Jools Holland's 'Later' show.
The other hired hand (on dobro) is the talented Matt Backer, a good mate of Marcus and myself, who we're hoping will guest on the new MM album.
Here they tackle Earle's exquisite song, 'Goodbye'.
Marcus remembers the session well:
By this time it was the end of the day and we were getting ready to record the show live, I was just putting on my frock for the evening’s performance and Steve came in and said ‘we’re going to do a song with Emmylou and Daniel’, so with 5 minutes to spare before the show I found myself in the corridor with Steve and Emmy Lou learning ‘Goodbye’"
