The London Bass Guitar Show, in association with Bass Guitar Magazine, held an all-star line-up at its 2013 show, on March 2 and 3, at London's prestigious Olympia venue.
One of the most legendary and innovative bass players in metal, David Ellefson appeared on Sunday 3 March in addition to his Masterclass on the previous day. His Sunday presentation was the perfect opportunity for visitors to ask him about his world-class picking style, how he builds bass parts and other related gear and technique issues, as well as Megadeth's recent Grammy nomination and the band's forthcoming album (and first since their switch to Universal), Super Collider.
Joining Ellefson were bass players from all styles of music and from both band and session backgrounds. There was something for every bass enthusiast, from soul and funk bassists through to metal and avant-garde jazz musicians. We had the great Peter Hook and Jah Wobble, who first emerged into the public eye in the very British post-punk acts Joy Division and PIL, Soul/funk/jazz/dub cats Nate Watts (Stevie Wonder) and Malcolm Joseph (Grace Jones), delivered those thunderous low notes and quick-thumbed slap. Plus session veteran Guy Pratt, jazz/metal overlord Jonas Hellborg, blues aficionado Andy Irvine and many othersi ncluding Die So Fluid front woman Grog Lisee -- who has sessions under her belt with Mel C and many other artists -- South American tech guru Igor Saavedra and rockabilly upright legend Lee Rocker. We also had the pleasure of UK session player Phil Mulford (Lionel Ritchie, Beyonce), Brand New Heavies bassist Andrew Levy and Wojtek Pilichowski, voted the Best Polish Bass Player by Guitar & Bass readers. Added to the bill was the chance to explore a couple of large halls' worth of bass gear making the London Bass Guitar Show the ultimate show for anyone into the low notes.
