Rest In Peace Joe Osborn. You will be missed!
Man, day by day the icons are passing.
Whatever you're going to do, don't wait. Time passes too quickly.
So sad to hear this. Joe has always been one of favorite bassists of all time, and is responsible for SOOOOOO many fantastic bass lines.
RIP, Joe. You will be missed.

One of his best, IMO...
Sad news indeed, Fair Winds and Following Seas Joe.
The consummate gentleman, you created an example for so many others to aspire to.
And provided inspirations that continue on through to the present day.
Thanks for all the great music!
Fly on Joe...…………………………..
Link please? I just Googled this, no information on his death.
True legend. Deserves as much credit as Jamerson, Kaye en Willie Weeks.
Helluva player. RIP

His son has confirmed his passing in this thread Who played bass on The Carpenters hits? post 313
This makes me very sad. RIP, Joe, and thank you for the music and inspiration.
Met him at NAMM many years back. Took me in the booth and showed me his new Lakland model. Talked so proidly of it. Treated me like he’d known me for years. What a cool dude. RIP
Very sad news. Joe you will always be great. Peace.
One of the all time greats of the electric bass. Even the top studio musicians of his era praised Joe as being the best of the best. So many songs have caught my attention over the years only to find out in the liner notes that the bass line was performed (and likely created) by Joe Osborn. A giant. Thanks for the music Joe.
Played on so many great records and always played the perfect part. One of my favorite bass lines of this period (although I'll post the original version that he didn't play on because we've probably all heard the Grass Roots' ver4sion a million times).
