  • Really enjoyed this podcast, but you overlooked three important people when discussing bassists!

    Mariusz Duda of Riverside is a phenomenal technical player and a great songwriter and singer as well, and his ability to play obscenely complex music on the bass while singing something totally different is just wild – I still don’t know how he plays Second Life Syndrome live.

    Ray Schulman of Gentle Giant is an incredibly creative player, and while he mostly sang backup in GG, also had the ability to sing wildly different parts from what he was playing on bass, and along with brother Derek and Kerry Minear, was one of the primary songwriters in the band.

    Finally, Dave Pegg of Jethro Tull and Fairport Convention is often overlooked but is a fantastic player – the longest-tenured bassist in Tull and bandleader of Fairport from the 80s onward, he’s a great all-around musician and an exceptional bassist.

    • Yes totally right. They are great. And I’m sure we forgot more as well. But thanks for listening and mentioning these guys.
