Interview with Tony Franklin

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Rockin John, Feb 2, 2004.

  1. interesting stuff.

    so it was him with Kate Bush & David Gilmour playing "Running up that hill" live- IIRC he was playing a Jaydee fretless?

    also of note in the Mo Foster interview-
    "have mixed feelings about Jack's (Jack Bruce) fretless playing. He clearly loves it, but I still remember the visceral excitement of the sound he made on his fretted EB3. Fretless is very hard to pitch accurately and I think Jack drifts a bit occasionally - especially when he's singing, which must be so hard."

    - I agree, his intonation at the Guitar legends festival (1992?) was sloppy.
