""My Ding-a-Ling" is a novelty song... It was covered by Chuck Berry in 1972 and became his only
number-one single in the United States...

Nic Potter of Van der Graaf Generator played bass on the track."

Mind Blown!

Yeah, he was certainly a character and early 'rock n roller' (I wouldn't be too quick to use the 'rest room' in his restaurant though....)

I think that song is just Chuck and the audience, no bass. There was a followup single "Reelin' and Rockin'" that made top 40 in 1973 where Potter may have played.

He opened the FZ 1971 New Haven show - best opening act I ever saw.

Just dug up my copy of "The London Chuck Berry Sessions" LP out of curiosity. The live second side (Reelin', the long version of Ding-A-Ling, and JBG) credits both Nic Potter and Rick Grech on bass. Whether one or the other or both plays anything on "My Ding-A-Ling", I couldn't tell you without listening.

I never knew "My Ding-A-Ling" lasted 12 minutes on the album.

f-O strikes again!

Notice how no one has the patience to just head on over to youtube and listen for the bass?
Perhaps I will get up the nerve this afternoon.

Having found the time/"patience" to listen to the long version, it has a lot of extra banter from Chuck and some additional, dirtier verses compared to the radio version, but no bass.
