Me! Once heard, never forgotten... :mrgreen:



Seriously, though: Norman Watt-Roy of the Blockheads. As funky as a funky thing that's been to funky school in funky town, with a li'l bit of extra funk thrown in. Funky.

There's one serious omission from this thread..........The Legendary Willie Dixon. When Willie slaps the (stand-up)
bass the whole world takes notice. Triplets in the 1940's!? Wild,but uniquely his "voice".
Please check out this clip.

+2. He's the reason I play bass, and the inspiration for my sound.

Cheers!

Lemmy did an interview on Planet Rock a few weeks ago; when asked about why he became a bassist he got a bit shirty. "I'm not a 'kin bassist (bleeped), I play rythym guitar - on a bass."

Hi Stu! How the h&ll are things with you?
(Don't mean to hijack the thread, so send me an email, Stu, and we can catch up. It's all good here.)

One of my all-time favorite bass players with a "voice" all his own was Andy Fraser when he played with Free and Sharks. What a sound and feel.

Hi Michael!
Yeah, all good here, tho' major troubles mid-year job wise but all fixed now. Now working in the design studio of a major CD/DVD publisher :mrgreen: Turned out they'd been trying to find me for two years & I found them.
Loved your CD, sent you an email about that, & will write with news soon; going up to Edinburgh in two weeks to visit my son.

Meanwhile ................ back at the thread .............. Yeah, Andy Fraser, "Alright Now" is played to death on the radio, but it is THE definitive sound of the EB3!!!

Heheheh... that's what I tell people too. Because it's true! I'm not a "bassist", but a guitarist who plays bass! ;) :jam:
