KNOW YOUR BASS PLAYER
by Tom Semioli
It’s not a chord until we play a note!
It all started one day in 2014 when a media colleague turned to me and inquired “…was Paul McCartney the bass player in The Beatles?”
Welcome to KNOW YOUR BASS PLAYER© which is a series of essays and select video interviews which are aimed to inform, entertain, and perhaps enlighten the masses. My producer Mark Preston and I are currently working on a bass player documentary which we are shooting in New York City and London with Derek Hanlon.
So far, we’ve filmed amazing bassists who went before our camera to reveal remarkable, insightful, and oft hysterical stories about their lives, careers, and the artists they worked with. Check out the video clips of Mo Foster, Graham Maby, Jim Rodford, Cait O'Riordan, Paul Nowinski, Ron McClure, John Ford, John Cardone, Theo Regan, Hannah Moorhead, Ian Lloyd, Tony Senatore, Steve Bingham, Sal Maida, Paul Page, Brian Stanley, Joe Vasta, Michael Visceglia, Gary Van Sycoc, Ernie Brooks, and Charles DeChants, on their respective pages below. They're just a few of the bass players you’ll get to know. Trust me, you’ve already heard them on your radio, streaming service, record collection...
