The Bass Book’s Back

Veteran MI journalist Tony Bacon and the doyen of all things bass, Barry Moorhouse, have a new and revised third edition of their definitive title The Bass Book (A Complete Illustrated History of Bass Guitars) on the way from Backbeat Books/Hal Leonard.

Packed with original interviews with makers of bass guitars from the past and present, the book also features an exclusive interview with Paul McCartney and other bassists, including Jack Bruce, Stanley Clarke, John Entwistle, James Jamerson, and Jaco Pastorius.

Dozens of unusual, desirable, and rarely seen basses are presented in high-quality photos. A reference section provides a wealth of information on the key makers.
