Bass Players are probably second only to drummers when it comes to being the butt of the music worlds jokes. Ulitmate Guitar is reversing this trend and recently created a list of Criminally Underrated Bassists.
We’re super-excited to see that the Ultimate Guitar have recognised Billy Gould’s bass playing skills on their list. Here’s what Ultimate Guitar had to say:
Faith No More’s bassist Billy Gould is the embodiment of the musician who can do it all while never forgetting the role of the bass as a supportive rhythm instrument. From the glam-funk of “Falling to Pieces,” to the deep grooves of “Evidence,” and the gospel bounce of “Just a Man,” Billy Gould always drops lines and licks that just stick in your brain whether they’re in pick or finger-style, heavy or light.
