The Bassist

The Bassist

I was shooting a charity event, and the bassist from the live entertainment reminded me of Kim Deal (Pixies/The Breeders).

I greatly admire her work, talent, and also how she came to “be”.

Pixies advertised for a bassist, and though she was actually a guitarist she auditioned (with her sisters bass).

She went on to also be a fantastic writer, and lead vocalist, which is how I discovered her (via the two songs below).

I feel she deserves a spot on the “Rolling Stone Readers Pick the Top Ten Bassists of All Time“, but can’t disagree with these choices either: John Entwistle, Flea, Paul McCartney, Geddy Lee, Les Claypool, John Paul Jones, Jaco Pastorius, Jack Bruce, Cliff Burton, Victor Wooten.

Pixies – Gigantic (Live in studio in 1988)

The Breeders – Cannonball
