Gary Tallent???

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Abr@hamBassBoy, Jan 11, 2003.


  1. Has Gary Tallent the bassist in E Street Band produced any Solo Records or something? Btw. I am not a fan of his bass playing, It's good and all, however not brilliant... I'm just curious wheather he has done solo projects or not...

  3. "his playing is good, but not brilliant".....
    What do you expect? He's the bassist for the E Street Band. As such he is required to perform a function, namely provide rhythmic and harmonic support for the guitars and sax. He performs that function perfectly, so what do you want from him? Jaco-like solos? Victor speed and flash? Do you think Bruce would have kept him as bassist if he was not perfect for that band?
    Also, I think you will find, if you care to use the search function, that he is on the A list of session bassists. Did he achieve that by not being brilliant? I dont think so.
