But what about any current bands?
I’ve always wanted to own one.
Great thread OP
Yes, John Entwistle used them before Paul but he wasn't the high profile Rock star he'd become yet and would switch to Fenders when The Who started to get famous.
Never get bored of this.
did lemmy not famously use gibson thunderbird pickups for most of his career?
when I was a teenager, early 70s, it seemed like most of the local bands I saw had a ric bass. how so many of them ended up here in the backside of nowhere has always puzzled me.
I’m not a big Purple fan but I’d say that was Roger in that video on bass? Although there is a lot of hair going on, could be almost anyone.
A friend of mine owned a 4005 many years ago. Cool bass!
Don't forget about Pete Quaife.
I've always liked the sound of Mike Rutherford from Peter Gabriel's era Genesis:
That's what I meant. Roger plays Rickenbacker in Purples most iconic recording. Trying to be funny and overdramatic....and missed the target...
My first bass was a brand new 1979 black 4001 with hard case. I still have it and the original receipt. Street price in 1979; $390.00 with hard shell case.
The Rick-o-Sound in action courtesy of Chris Squire:
You probably already know that Geddy Lee was heavily influenced by Chris Squire *and* Paul McCartney both, so it only makes sense...
Did Colin typically use a Ric?
Swing a dead cat anywhere on this stage you'll hit a Ric.
As said before, it always seemed the garage bands in my neighborhood growing had a Ric bass. Maybe they all shared the same bass player?
