PASTE Magazine: The 10 Best Rock Bassists of All-Time
Lee Zimmerman from Paste Magazine recently penned a article listing his Top 10 Bass Guitarists of All-Time. At Number 8 on the list is yours truly, Jack Casady.
Here s some of what Mr. Zimmerman had to say
His throbbing walking bass lines heightened the drama in such seminal standards as “White Rabbit,” “Volunteers,” “Embryonic Journey” and “Crown of Creation,” helping to launch a style that combined the complexities of jazz with a surging undertow youthful menace that help support the band’s insurgent stance.
Yeah baby, youthful menance! Soon to be the title of Jack s forthcoming auto-biography. Just kidding!
Jack is honored to be part of such an austere group of fellow groove layers. And humbled to have been a part of a musical history that changed the world, a musical history that continues to evolve and grow. Thank You PASTE magazine for the recognition and Thank You to all the fans that made it possible. Much Love and Respect!
Here is a video that depicts some of that youthful menance, at age 69. Not the best video, but fun none the less. Enjoy!
