Kick Up The Bass

I like bass players.  They are often the overlooked member of most bands but are one of the key parts of any band.  There isn’t enough love for the bass player so when I shoot a band I like to get the bass player.  Think about some of the biggest bands in history and their great bass players, John Paul Jones, John Entwistle, Robert Trujillo, Derek Smalls (points if you know this one without looking it up), Jason Newstead, Cliff Burton, Lemmy Kilmister, Les Claypool, Geezer Butler, Adam Yauch, Sir Paul McCartney, and a whole lot more that I can’t think of right now.  So going through old pictures, here is my humble tribute to the bass player.

Finally I will leave you with the greatest bass song ever written.
