They seems to look pretty relaxed. NHOP seems to be playing half the time with his eyes closed
How does he anchor the rhythm section yet his body moves completely out of sync with what his fingers are doing?
I have no idea what you mean.
Learned this the hard way trying to play Allman's "Melissa" with a guitarist on bass.
Fell apart faster than eBay tuners.
Yeah, he's out of sync alright. Probably with a lot of stuff, not just the lip-sync.
I don't know if he's the one on the record but his fingers appear to be following the music.
We had one named Drooper, he would bite you if he didn't want to be messed with. One night when I was still drinking AND had been drinking he bit me, so I grabbed him and bit him on the NOSE, HARD!!! Cured old Drooper of biting instantly, I reckon he figured if he bit anyone they might bite him back. I know he never bit anyone around our place again.
I'm afraid to make a comment on this video for fear I might be considered something I probably am.
I kind of like that, sort of like you would looking at the Golden Gate bridge from a good angle if you hadn't never seen it before, but you might wanna be wearing a parachute.
It's ok. When I play bass in a bluegrass band (or country) I'm also either singing lead or harmony backups. Simple bass lines let me concentrate more on remembering lyrics and hitting my notes.
I've played bass some in some cover bands. Also overlayed bass on some of my recordings.
Generally it's not bored. It's being zoned out with mantra like repetitive bass lines.
It's not boredom. It's pressure, at least in my case.
Screw up or get lost and stop on bass and everyone feels/knows it. Screw up or get lost and stop on guitar and you're just "laying out/back".

Bill's physical demeanor is/was, um, reserved to say the least. But he played some really cool bass lines as he stood there, and he and Charlie together stoked an irresistible engine underneath Mick and the boys' histrionics. Not only that, but didn't Keith write in his book that Bill got more women than any of them? Maybe still waters run deep after all.
Most the famous ones did not look bored, nor did they let themselves get boxed into root notes and a right foot.
Being a famous bassist vrs being the bassist in a famous band are two different things, Im going to stop that one before it starts.
Bill just stood there checking out the girls in the audience. So yes, he ended up with more of them than the others.
Sounds like that old joke about the bull and his son looking at all the pretty cows down the hill (the son says "let's run down and **** one" and the father says "let's walk down and **** them all". I guess that's what Bill was saving all his energy for.
Bill likely just had the one time and gossip did the rest.
( well endowed) nothing to do with bass, at all.
Duck Dunn smoking a pipe while keeping the band grooving will always be what "cool bass player" means to me
