Bass Quotations

The bass player's function, along with the drums, is to be the engine that drives the car... everything else is merely colours.
Suzi Quatro

Without the Fender bass, there'd be no rock n' roll or no Motown. The electric guitar had been waiting 'round since 1939 for a nice partner to come along. It became an electric rhythm section, and that changed everything.
Quincy Jones

I wasn't originally a bass player. I just found out I was needed, because everyone wants to play guitar.
Tina Weymouth

Funny story: I was hanging out with Adam Shankman for Samantha Ronson's birthday, and Lance Bass was there. I don't really know Lance, but he comes over to me and goes, 'Hey, I just wanted to let you know I'm a fan of 'Pretty Little Liars' and I'm rooting for your character.' It was surreal! That's how 'PLL' has changed my life.
Ryan Guzman

If you're working on a computer and you're editing bass, it looks like a warm curvy, sort of feminine object.
Colin Greenwood
