There's really no one else like him. He's got a style all his own. He's also a great eco-artist. Eco style whether he's slinging paint or harmonies, the pictures are full of colours. Master of the meowing bass. This Kat is Kool. See him in Fathead. Hear him in the Rhythm Addicts. Visit him at.
Almost 50 years of bass. Joey has been playing in bands all his life. Whenever we talk about old groups Joey's in them, G.W. and the Demons, Spirit, Leigh Ashford, Wilcox, on and on. Been accused of playing too precise. Joey can play it wrong so the drummer can sound right, nice trick! Still Playing, teaching and running his store (GeorginaMusic.com) in Sutton Ontario.
I've known Uli since he was 17. He went straight to the bass-ment & has been shaking the foundation ever since. Uli always brings a positive attitude and a smooth round sound to any project. We love him as both a great musician & friend.
We call him "The Dancing Bass Player", always "hoppin' & poppin'" with a bottom end that goes way down. He makes it hard to just sit there. His surprising choice of notes & unique runs, combined with the detail in his sound. Let's Jon stand as an original artist with his own style.
Where do you start & where do you finish. There's just too much. He is an icon in music and in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Precision, power and intensity puts Prakash at the top of his class. Leadership, drive and a real passion for the music keeps him there.
Another guy who goes way back in T.O. With a smooth rich tone and pulsating rhythm, Gary brings that heart beat to the Downchild Blues Band. Not too much, not too little, he always finds the perfect blend. Gary also heads up the Maple Blues Band and still finds time to run the Silver Dollar, T.O.'s premier Blues club.
In the 60's and 70's, Peter was at the top of the pile with the likes of the Checkmates, Rhinoceros, Rough Trade. Then he started playing for Real Estate (some kind of house music, I guess). Anyways he keeps popping up here and there with Rhinoceros reunion and Johnny Wright. He reminds you how the bass should be played.
Not as well known as some others, Robert still finds a modern twist to an old style with a great sounding 5 string. He's got a killer attitude and has found a home with Bent Roots, one of our favourite bands here at the Ranch.
Everything about billy is BIG. Big sound, big enthusiasm, big studio (Psychedome), big collections of instruments, mics, amps, cars, equipment and people who love him. The biggest thing about Billy is his heart, always goes out of his way for others. One of my best friends.
