Robbos 5 string bass on this song is as good as it gets! He almost didn’t do it. He came in to play 12 String. Knocked out the parts in first takes. Then added some Fender chords and a few solos and I thought he was done. He suggested a bass part too but I had the put in a simple, descending riff on cubase and thought it was ok. But he said the bass was with him so he might as well give it a go, and I let him plug in. I hit record and he started playing the thing and I almost fell off my seat. It was beautiful, tasteful, strong, inventive, flowing. As good as any bassline I’d ever heard. And he’s kind of muttering about whether it was ok or not! I think I might one day be remembered as the guy who encouraged Robbo to go for it! He writes too, you see! If there are any bands out there need a very modest,
hugely talented bass player and songwriter – bugger off! He’s helping me at the moment, thank you!
