Ed Gagliardi

Millions heard his thumping bass lines blaring from FM radio in the 1970s by way of his brief tenure in Foreigner. However, the late Ed Gagliardi, who commandeered a Rickenbacker 4001 akin to his idol Sir Paul, was a brilliant upper register and counter-melodic player as evidenced on such deep album cuts including “Starrider” “Woman Oh Woman," “Fool For You Anyway,” “You Are All I Am” and “Spellbinder.”
