From a '70s MusikLaden.
Not even Bryan Ferry or Phil Manzanera can name all the bassists... It could be Rick Kenton.
I've been doing Google searches of all the bassists they used, but can't find pictures of them all.
Looks a little like the late great Alan Spenner, but I don't know if he played with Roxy as early as '73.
Pretty sure it's John Porter.
It must be, I've just been looking at some pictures from that era that seem to have him in
Yep, it's Porter. Rik Kenton was the one with round glasses, and after Porter Sal Maida held the spot until Wetton took over in the late '74. There's some clips on youtube where Maida plays a Rickenbacker and looks as glamourous as the other band, a rare feat for a Roxy bassist.
There's also one clip with the king of Roxy bassdom, John Gustafson.
Thanks for the info!
While we're on the subject of Roxy bassists, does anyone know what happened to Graham Simpson after he left?
I love Roxy Music. Maybe one of the most influential bands in my musical history.
