    This guy must be the world's most underrated bass player.Whenever I play Highway Star or Smoke on the water,our guitar player gets all the credit though the bass lines are pretty complex as well.

    That would happen to be Talkbass' second most used phrase.

    It comes second only to this one:

    I agree - Glover's awesome. I especially enjoy his bass lines on "Lazy."
  5. yeah, you just can't beat Space truckin'! thats gotta be one of the greatest songs. i just wish i could find some distortion to match the organ's so i could play the intro live like that!

    I still have the Circus mag from the '70s with the shocker/teaser on the cover-

    "Deep Purple Shake-Up"
    ...inside, it sez Glover & Gillan booted out of the band. I was shocked &, IIRC, pretty disappointed. Glenn Hughes was a pretty decent replacement, though.

    You can see Glover jamming with the Mule on their Deepest End DVD/2-cd set.
  7. Well, Roger isn't only a pretty good bassist, he's also a superb talent scout. He produced Michael Schenker's (ex Scorpions) solo albums, just to mention a little of his work.

    Ha so true

    ___________ is so underrated. You can really put any bassists name in there and odds are, someone has said it.

    Jaco really doesn't get any cred.

    I feel it makes more sense, seeing as it's my name. :)

    Agree. Aside from Roger, I would also mention Bob Daisley. They both have fine bass lines. BTW I won't consider them underrated just not given much recognition.

    When I started playing bass I saw that Daisley does a tutorial on some web-site.Dunno which one though.

    Glover was fantastic on all that DP "Mark 2" stuff (which was also my favorite incarnation of the band)... and one of my strongest early influences. Glenn Hughes was a funkier player but not driving or crunchy like Glover was. Although Glenn was a good bassist, I think his excellent soulful voice was what carried him and got him the gigs.
  16. That Blackmore kept him around for so long says a lot for his talent.

  18. Definitely a good bass player, and very underrated (but which bassist wasn't?).

    BTW, what's the most commonly heard phrase?
