session bassists who double on drums?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by The Mock Turtle Regulator, Sep 8, 2002.


  1. I've been reading about Charley Drayton, who appears to be noted as a bassist (X-pensive Winos, The Cult, Iggy Pop, Neil Young) and as a drummer too (Divinyls, B52's, Will Lee, Bernie Worrell).

    BP also mentioned that he and Steve Jordan often switch bass and drums roles with the X-pensive winos (Keef's band).

    any other session bassists who double on drums?

    I think Mark King still gets called on to do adverts and theme songs for TV in the UK. When he does, he usually plays all the instruments, including drums.

    Bob Glaub plays drums, pretty good according to people who have heard him. Don't know if he's ever played them on a session or with a group.

    Steve Arrington. Actually, he's a drummer who doubles on bass.
