Paul Goddard

He anchored a dexterous collective of seasoned Georgia session cats who were a staple on FM radio and concert halls coast to coast in the 1970s.

The late Paul Goddard, whom I saw a few times plying his craft on a Rickenbacker 4001 with a plectrum, was a master melodic pocket player and soloist.

Paul’s blistering chromatic bass breaks on “Another Man’s Woman” as rendered on the studio slab Red Tape (1976) and the live Are You Ready (1979) are the stuff of legend.  (Photo Steve Morley)
