Weekly Basslines #232: Santa Fe (from RENT)

In 2009 I had the pleasure to play the musical "RENT" and ever since it's my all time favourite musical. It's rather a rock opera as it contains a few really rocking numbers and it's a real bonanza for extraordinary basslines like the one in "Santa Fe".

Here's my version:


Weekly Basslines #231: Crime Of Passion (Uriah Heep)

What a fantastic bassline! Trevor Bolder's stunning debut with Uriah Heep.

The 1977 album "Fire Fly" was the first album with Trevor Bolder on bass, replacing John Wetton, who played on the two previous albums "Return To Fantasy" and "High and Mighty".
From 1971 until 1973 Trevor played with "The Spiders from Mars", David Bowie's Backing-Band. After joining Uriah Heep in 1977 he remained wih the group until his death in 2013.

The song "Crime Of Passion" wasn't on the actual "Firefly" album, as it it was used as B-side to the first single "Wise Man".
