Hi fellow funkateers!
This edition will be a lot of different.I need to honor my fave funk bass players.Both of them were parts of beginnings of funk,parts of legendary bands.First one is LARRY GRAHAM , a father of thumpin`, pluckin` and other tricks of bass playing,member of Sly & The Family Stone, co-writer of many funk classics,leader of superfunk band Graham Central Station and today`s member of Prince`s band.
This episode, you`ll hear his works from SLY & THE FAMILY STONE to present.Second one was a part of The J.B.`s, Parliament/Funkadelic.He also made his own band called Bootsy`s Rubber Band.
The one and only BOOTSY COLLINS.
Funk bass player with unique technique.Created whole universe of his own.His bass speaks,rages, soothes and caresses.It takes you to another place.He`s Jimi Hendrix of bass and that`s no lie.Those legends influenced bass players like Flea and Les Claypool from Primus and many, many others.
