Carly Simon
The best known and loved song by
Carly Simon is
"You're So Vain",
a song that has taken on a
legendary status of its own.
Klaus's opening bassline,
which he created to suggest
the song's swaggering character,
sets the mood for the song and
has become a part of that legend.
Watch Klaus playing bass on
You're so Vain
Filmed in 1976 live on Saturday Night
(You can pause the song on the MP3 player at the bottom of the page)
