Bass Quotations

None of us wanted to be the bass player. In our minds he was the fat guy who always played at the back.
Paul McCartney

The bass, no matter what kind of music you're playing, it just enhances the sound and makes everything sound more beautiful and full. When the bass stops, the bottom kind of drops out of everything.
Charlie Haden

Bass players are always the intellectual kind, but nobody knows it.
Stanley Clarke

You can't beat 2 guitars, bass, and drums.
Lou Reed

Like all music, the figured bass should have no other end and aim than the glory of God and the recreation of the soul; where this is not kept in mind there is no true music, but only an infernal clamour and ranting.
Johann Sebastian Bach
