BassPlayer - June - 2012 Thin Lizzy
Talented, charismatic, and effortlessly cool, Thin Lizzy's iconic frontman Phil Lynott ticked all the boxes necessary for rock stardom. On the eve of an upcoming massive box set of previously-unreleased Lizzy recordings, we turn back the clock to look at the life and times of the beloved bassist, speaking to his bandmates Brian Downey and Brian "Robbo" Robinson. Includes a lesson on classic Lynott bass lines, along with input from current Thin Lizzy bassist Marco Mendoza and Def Leppard's Rick Savage.
John Goldsby digs deep in his full-song transcription and analysis of a live recording of the Oscar Peterson Trio's "You Look Good To Me," featuring jazz bass giants Ray Brown and Niels-Henning Ørsted Petersen.
We also test-drive two killer new rigs, the Fender Super Bassman and the Mark Bass Randy Jackson signature head and cab, and we take the new MXR Bass Fuzz Deluxe out for a spin. And Much More!
