> Geddy Lee names his 10 fav bass players

A few days ago, musicradar.com posted an interview with Geddy Lee – from the band Rush. Geddy also named 10 bassists that “blew his mind”. We thought it would be a good idea to make a synopsis of that list. The full text can be found HERE.

I’m gonna go with a choice back from my roots, someone who inspired everyone we’ve talked about on this list. He was from the Motown years and was not a rock guy, but if you want a real education in bass playing listen to “Ain’t No Mountain High EnoughSo many of those Motown classics would not have grooved the way they did or would not have been as melodic without his input. There were three players from that period in America: him, ‘Duck’ Dunn and Carol Kaye, who had the LA sound down.
