CS 100 GREATEST BASS PLAYERS 84 John Deacon As part of one of the most iconic stadium rock bands ever, John Deacon also wrote some of the most memorable bass lines of all time. The catchy grooves of Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Under Pressure” are instantly recognizable. Deacon also was a master of ballads, such as “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Are the Champions.” 85 Bill Black A rock & roll cornerstone figure, Black innovated rockabilly slap bass just as he and guitarist Scotty Moore joined up with Elvis Presley in 1954, playing on hits like “Heartbreak Hotel” and “Hound Dog,” and becoming one of the first (following Monk Montgomery and preceding Dave Myers) to record with a Fender Precision, on Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock” in 1957. 86 Red Mitchell For Red Mitchell (1927–1992), jazz was a search for personal identity. In the ’50s, he worked with Hampton Hawes and Ornette Coleman. Mitchell’s contrapuntal bass lines and melodic solos set him apart from other beboppers. Mitchell was a mentor to Charlie Haden and Scott LaFaro. In 1966, he began tuning his bass in 5ths (CGDA), and found his personal sound. 87 Michael Rhodes Since Nashville went electric on the heels of Bob Moore, Junior Huskey, and Henry Strzelecki, no bass guitarist has been in more ears and had more of an impact. In addition to tracking for country’s A-list, Rhodes’ crafty, precise style has graced records by Brian Wilson, Buddy Guy, Sheryl Crow, and India.Arie. 42 bassplayer.com / february2017
