Is there anyone out there who is old enough and dialed in on precision (not Fender Precision) bass/guitar work who remembers, or still listens to the fine licks of Wishbone Ash? Since the early 1970's until now, I know of no other band who used only strings (and drums..Steve Uptown) to portray such precise and MUSICAL riffs. Guitar licks with a purpose, and bass that reflects and compliments the guitars. Martin Turner played a Thunderbird. Made it sing. He is my all time favorite bass player. Just ahead of Chris Squire I saw them in 1974 at a terrible (well below them) venue in Indianaplois. Melody Skate Land. Yup. A roller skating rink. Sat on the floor and ......smoked. They were scheduled to play two days later at the Hammond Civic center. A better venue, but still...........I was there I have nine of their albums. Each a Masterpiece. But, as always, well beyond what many can conceive, or even understand. Popular music in the 70's doesn't (and didn't) include anything that I listened to. It was mostly crap. What I listened to was considered "underground" music. Anyone?
