Weeks' playing on Donny Hathaway's Live (1972), including a 3 1/2 minute bass solo on "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", [1] is regarded by many bass players as some of Week's most acclaimed work. Weeks played a 1962 Fender P-Bass through an Ampeg B-15 amplifier on the recording. Weeks also played on the 1975 No. 1 single "Fame" by David Bowie. Weeks played at the Crossroads Guitar Festival on July 28, 2007 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois.[2] Weeks replaces Nathan East as a touring and studio bassist for Eric Clapton since late 2005. In addition to his red 1962 P-Bass, Weeks also uses a maple-neck 1958 Precision, a 1964 Jazz Bass and a sunburst Marcus Miller signature, as well as a tobacco sunburst Kay 4-string acoustic for Clapton's unplugged repertoire. Weeks appeared in the films Blues Brothers 2000 and Lightning in a Bottle.
