The Most Influential Blues Bassists.

~Many thanks to Mick Houser.

 

 

We talk a lot about the influence of the blues. Blues guitar, roots, acoustic, electric and slide, are all topics of exciting interest and history.

Mick Houser, bassist for Dr. Mudd, Skeleton Crew, and the historic Wasted Angel, every now and again will write in to remind me that the blues guitar pieces, although stunning and important, need the support of kickin blues bassists to make a great song.

He recommends these articles for our readers and I agree.

Glenn Hughes

I've seen Deep Purple live in the 1980's and my neighbor toured with Blackmore's Knights. With all of this great rock exposure, how could I have missed the career of Glenn Hughes? Back then, I wasn't writing about music, I just listened - and I knew what I liked -without thinking about why. But time is my friend. The sounds followed me like an afternoon shadow, delightfully haunting. And when I turned to see from whence they came, I was happily spinning about. Thanks Mick, for shining the light on Glenn Hughes.
