Late Night Pick: The Melvins, RIP Bob Babbitt

Tonight check out a repeat of the Last Call with Carson Daly with seminal post-punk band, The Melvins. Last Call is on at 1:35 AM on NBC.

Funk Brother bassist Bob Babbitt died at 74 yesterday. The Funk Brothers played on most of Motown's output in the 60's and early 70's. Bob played on hits like "Tears of a Clown" "Signed Sealed Delivered", "Ball of Confusion" and countless others. The full obit is HERE. The Funk Brothers are some of the great unsung heroes of rock and roll and they finally got their due in the wonderful movie, "Standing in the Shadows of Motown". If you haven't seen it, see it right now.
