60's and 70's
« on: February 22, 2012, 03:31:04 PM »
my fav's would have to be john paul jones of led zeppelin and geddy lee of RUSH! two of my favorites bands because of each of these players. john .paul just loves to groove and stays in the "pocket" while going crazy with his runs, his tone is also soooo prime for the music he plays not to mention he plays sooo many more instruments! nowww geddy lee is another favorite of this period because of his inovation in singing while playing bass lines that some would say "how does he do that and sing??" haha i've seen him in concert and honestly he just blows my mind with his tone and his inovation while SINGING! one of the earlier pioneers of the electric bass :)

peace and love to all

Not to mention Geddy's use of Moog pedals as well!

How in the world can you limit, in the golden age of bass, to just two bassists is beyond me.

60's, how about Jack Bruce, Paul McCarney, John Entwistle, James Jamerson??

70's, Verdeen White, Stanley Clarke, Jaco Pastorious, Chuck Rainey, Walter Becker, etc, etc, etc....

Hey, I mean no knock on JP and Geddy, but really.... there were a ton of great bassists during that era.
WTDI, WP-100 Navigator, WT-1250, WT 800, D-210-XLT, D-210-XST, Nemesis RS 320-15, Nemesis RS-320-210, Fender USA P-Bass Deluxe, Warwick Corvette 5 string.

John McVie (probably the reason I play bass now) with John Mayall and Jack Bruce with Graham Bond, depping on double bass with the Bruce Turner Jump Band (mainly Louis Jordan covers), Cream of course, and solo stuff.  Jaco for the 70's with Larry Graham.  James Jamerson when he was 'the bass player on the Motown records' - uncredited of course, any bass player on a James Brown track...
