"Prince: requiem for a bass hero"

https://www.guitarworld.c...-bass-hero

.

The bassists that played with the late legend share their stories

.

[...]

.

In honor of his contributions to our instrument, we gathered a virtual roundtable of bassists who played with Prince during his lifetime. Several, including Thompson, André Cymone, BrownMark, Levi Seacer Jr, Rhonda Smith, Ida Nielsen, Andrew Gouche, and Josh Dunham (as well as drummer John Blackwell and bass/guitar tech Takumi) toured and recorded with him for years.

.

Some, like Tal Wilkenfeld and MonoNeon, spent brief, intense periods at Paisley Park, while others, like Alex Al, jammed with Prince but never made it to his studio. All, however, were touched by his magic and inspired by his presence.

.

These are their stories.

A great read from his bass-mates and blast back to the time of me buying a Warwick in '96 after watching that exact video and trying to play along to "Shoop" with Prince lol
